The International Institute of Islamic Thought


The International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) is a center of excellence in educational research and Islamic thought whose main interest is on carrying out evidence-based research in advancing education in Muslim Societies and the dissemination of this research through publication and translation, teaching, policy recommendations, and strategic engagements. The Institute was established as a non-profit 501(c)(3) non-denominational organization in the United States of America in 1981. The headquarters are in Herndon, Virginia, in the suburbs of Washington DC.



Announcement

The International Institute of Islamic Thought announces that Professor Muqtedar Khan is no longer delivering the Al-Faruqi Lecture at this year’s American Academy of Religion annual meeting. We have found a recent post from his personal Twitter account to be inconsistent with IIIT’s policies and interests. Khan authored a piece for the Center for Global Policy (CGP) in response to an essay published by another Islamic organization. While we stand by his right to engage in academic debate and with the rational arguments made in his piece, we do not support his actions on social media that appeared to target the other organization. CGP has issued a statement regarding Khan’s tweets in relation to the piece. In the light of the controversy over the tweet, IIIT feels that it would not be appropriate for Professor Khan to deliver the al-Faruqi Lecture this year on the sidelines of the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion. Therefore, we have regrettably decided to cancel the lecture at this year’s AAR gathering.
