“As we grapple with complex plurality in the world, we must also grapple, as Muslims, with the diversity within our communities. AIR conferences have been at the forefront of embracing and nurturing this process with strategic concern and compassion towards the diversity within. This embrace helps to sustain a more inclusive understanding and practice of Islam, an Islam of tawhid: unity through diversity under Allah. It has been my honor and privilege to join in the AIR conferences” Dr. Amina Wadud, India
“The Inner Circle Retreat is a spiritual feast for all people who seek to improve their lives outside of patriarchal oppression and in the shade of the all-merciful God. At the retreat, there is love, fellowship, camaraderie, and empowerment for all people regardless of their background. I always feel like my inner battery is recharged after attending the retreat, and it is my sincere hope and desire to come again to Cape Town in September 2014 to join the Retreat for the third time! Scott Siraj al-Haqq Kugle, USA
