Online PR News – 29-August-2011 – – Toronto, ON - September 12th, 2011- Meet accomplished author, Habeeb Alli on Wednesday, September 21st,2011 from 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. at UIA, #2-2570 Haines Rd, Mississauga, ON.

His new book, "Intimacy and the Sacred - In Muslim Communities" talks about Sexuality and Islamic teachings.

"Oftentimes, as Muslims, we are unsure about what is halal, or sinful with regards to romance, marriage, and sexuality. These issues have become ever more cogent in this post-modern era where practices such as dating, and multiple partnering have become normalized. Habeeb Alli's Intimacy and the Sacred in Muslim Communities clarifies, educates, and explains these very pressing matters. He shows that Islam is far from being a ‘prudish' religion, as it is viewed in some quarters, and has in fact consistently elaborated upon these topics in core Islamic literature. His training in the East and living in the West brings a unique Canadian context to the subject as can be seen on http://www.allexperts.com/ep/947-69836/Islam/Imam-Habeeb.htm".

The evening will include short readings and the opportunity to personally meet the author and purchase signed copies of his book.

Intimacy and the Sacred in Muslim Communities is now available in e-book and paperback formats from the publisher, Iuniverse at 1-800-AUTHORS (288-4677), the author's website at www.muslimsincanada.ca and all major online retailers.
