On May 16, 2024, Rumi Forum will have its monthly circle to study Abrahamic scriptures on “Spiritual Mentoring” with our study leader, Taalibah Hassan, from Dar al Noor Islamic Community Center.

Scriptural Reasoning (SR) allows Christians, Jews, and Muslims to study each other’s sacred texts. SR participants meet monthly to read short passages on a topic from their respective scriptures. Facilitated by a study leader, each session is an opportunity to listen and share various perspectives. SR sessions help participants reflect on a curious list of topics within the Abrahamic tradition. The result is often a deeper understanding of others and one’s scriptures and the development of strong bonds across faith communities.
