Al-Hidayah has the honor of inviting the public to a much needed lecture on ''Resisting Extremism - A Historical and Textual Approach'' with the respected and much known Shaykh from England, Dr. Mufti Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf Mangera.

This lecture will deal with anecdotes from the earliest generations of Muslims in dealing with conflicts and resisting the urge to move beyond the path of moderation and the prophetic equilibrium.
