About the Event

Dr Stef will continue this monthly series of Islamic History in Europe and how this relates to our Muslim European Identity, by presenting us the history of the Ottomans In Vienna. This is extremely important for us muslims to know. Why? Because these significant Sieges of Islamic Influence in europe are what terrorists like the one in New Zealand(or Norway) remember and put the dates of these sieges on their rifles, before killing people.

Europe was in wonder and fear of the Ottoman advancement at that time and so these sieges of Vienna were of extreme atention to them. The amazing resault of this brief period of Ottoman presence is a city with more than 200 monuments! 

Dr Stef will begin with an open presentation of the subject, any one is able to ask questions in between. 

Then after those 40 minutes and a small 15 minute break, the Dr will open the discussion fully, for you to ask and comment on what was said.
