Book Launch.

MEDIA Advisory
Toronto, ON - August 22nd, 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 what the Quran and Hadith have to say about it.
"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".
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 and all major online retailers.
