Mesut Kurtis and Ali Ataie at SBIA: A Tribute to the Prophet (S)

Tribute to the Prophet

SBIA invites you to an evening of nasheed with renowned Macedonian-Turkish performer Mesut Kurtis this Wednesday evening. Ustadh Ali Ataie will also give a brief talk at the event entitled "What is Love?".

Wednesday, January 14th 8:00 – 9:30pm. Masjid al-Mustafa, 2345 Harris Way, San Jose.

This is a free event, although contributions are welcome — we suggest a donation of $20 to help cover costs. We expect a full house, so we encourage you to carpool to the event.

SBIA's Annual Mawlid will be this Saturday, January 17th as well. Mark your calendars for both events!

About our guests:

Mesut Kurtis is now being called one of the biggest stars of nasheed and Islamic Music. His unforgettable rendition of the Burdah and the music video for it have become modern‐day classics, and his new album “Tabassam” promises to be yet again a groundbreaking phenomenon in this genre of music across the Muslim world. His previous albums, "Beloved" and "Salawat" were also hits.

Ustadh Ali Ataie will speak on "What is Love?". He has spoken at SBIA before on topics such as "Does God Exist?". He is a teacher and researcher of the Islamic sciences, specializing in theology and biblical interpretation. He is Adjunct Professor of Islamic Studies and World Religions at both Zaytuna College and the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California.
