IRD’s have arranged 5-day Intensive Seminar Course 

New Trends in Islamic Studies

The course was led by Prof. Dr. Marcia Hermansen, Professor and Director Islamic World Studies Program at Loyola University, Chicago USA. Young Islamic studies professors from mostly KP Universities and twin cities attended the course. It went so well Alhamdulillah. Overall, the focus was an academic study of religion and Islam (as opposed to a believer’s approach to preaching Islam) surrounding issues related to gender, Quranic studies, Sufism, etc.
