The Qur'an is the theme of the current two-week segment of IIIT's 2008 Scholars' Summer Institute. Lectures by scholars and experts are followed by spirited discussions, leading to ideas for further academic and research initiatives. Lecturers this week have included Dr. Mahmoud Ayoub (Hartford Seminary), Dr. Eltigani Hamid, Dr. Khaleel Mohammed, Dr. Imad-ad-Dean Ahmad, Dr. Asaad Busool, and Dr. Israr Ahmad Khan.
Lectures and discussions are also attended by IIIT summer interns who are participating in an intensive learning program being held simultaneously with the Scholars' Institute. The theme of the Institute's next two-week session beginning on July 28 will be the Hadith.
