Participants of our classes and readers of our book, The Truth, are individuals who embrace equality, who are inspired by love, and who desire Spiritual Unity.
This class is the fifth in a series of seminars on the five primary religions: Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. Our facilitator, Jim Disbrow is a practicing Muslim who has traveled to Mecca for the Hadj, the most holy of the Islamic holidays. He also has studied and teaches on the Muslim Holy Book, the Quran, and the Muslim religious laws known as the Sharia
Students will learn:
·The first Shahada and how the religion of Islam was formed;;
·Why this 1,400 year old monotheistic religion has survived to this day;
·How the Quran was composed and the meaning of Allah and Allahu Akbar;
·The Universal Law of Social Islamic justice, Sharia, and the true meaning of jihad;
·The Five Pillars of Islam and the primary Islamic holy celebrations; and;
·The relevance of this religion in the 21st Century.
In keeping with the unification goals of The Oracle Institute, our facilitator will identify the lessons of Islam which continue to enhance our view of God and those which may be updated to further serve humanity. We also will explore how Islam may be incorporated into a pluralistic approach for understanding each other and communing with the Supreme Being.
The Truth (2006) presents a history of the 5 primary religions and their prophets, and challenges readers to decide whether these now ancient belief systems are more focused on promoting Spiritual Unity or perpetuating religious separation.
The Love (due 2008) contains essays, short stories, and poetry on various topics of love, to remind us of what we are to learn while our souls appear locked on the Earth Plane.
The Light (due 2011) explores the exalted yet accessible nature of the Supreme Being in a manner that is consistent with a sophisticated 21st Century human mind and experience.
