Event description

Description

With Jihad being justified in the name of Islam, we read the actual Quranic verses together and question whether the Message of Muhammad is meant to be an evolutionary one, or leaves no room for interpretation.

Sulayman Van Ael takes you on a journey of understanding, challenging ideas, and unraveling the Quran from a moderate and balanced perspective.


About Sulayman

Sulayman Van Ael was named in The Muslim 500 as one of the 25 biggest Muslim influencers in the category of social issues. Converting to Islam at 18, he gained a BA in Theology from Rotterdam University and a MSc in Counseling and Mental Care, now working as a counselor at LSE, Imperial and SOAS. His published books include “Successful Stress Management” and “Communication Techniques”.

Sulayman was the first European ever to be employed by the Ministry of Islamic affairs of Jordan to deliver talks and speeches and has been covered by CNN, Al-Jazeera America and Norwegian television. His documentary “My Jihad” was nominated several times and translated into 12 languages.

He can recite the entire Quran in English, Dutch, French and Arabic.
