This series will take an in-depth understanding of Islam’s divine balance between men and women taught by Dr. Jamal Badawi, a well-known Canadian Muslim educator, author, activist, preacher and speaker on Islam.

In this course polygamy will be assessed based on historical grounds with a focus on practices by Abrahamic faith traditions, the moral grounds sanctioning the practice, its strict conditions and qualifiers, and how the to practise is not encouraged nor makes one a better Muslim.
