Rules of Engagement (Islamic Ethics)
- Course Outline
Islamic Code of Ethics: I.C.E.
I.C.E. also stands for Integrity, Compassion, and Endurance, the three primary elements of noble character. The seminar will focus on these three qualities, in addition to many other magnificent values.

Whether you are ready to take a stand or not, this seminar is going to give you both the motivation and the tools you need in your quest to gain control over your rebellious soul.
