The Prophetic soul 

We will explore the Prophetic Soul by looking at the deeper teachings of 
the Prophet’s beautiful supplications (ad’iya). These ad’iya reflect 
the way we should feel and think and connect to the most High in every part of our 
mundaine lives. We believe them to be transformative, and refuse 
to believe that they were meant to be a daily routine without further results. 
We will tell you how you can turn your daily supplications into steps 
taking you closer to your true Love, Allah, the Majestic.

Is Islamic Law barbaric?

26-Jan-2020 17:00 -19:00
Free

LIMITED SPACES

Event Description

In the current age of increasing anti-Muslim sentiment, it has become routine to hear ignorant media pundits and bigoted political activists make baseless claims regarding the reality of Islam. A conscious effort is underway to paint Islam as inherently violent and its legal system as archaic and prehistoric. Far more alarming for Muslims, the greatest avenue for introduction to the faith, the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم is caricatured as a warlord by using false historical narratives and taking other true reports out of historical context. These claims could not be further from the truth. The immense canon of Islamic History from the pluralistic socieites of mediveal Cordoba to the small British Muslim community of Abdullah Quilliam in the early 20th century testify to the fact that Islam is a powerful force for peaceful coexistence and social equality.

As Muslims, it is now incumbent upon us to remove the falsities from the truth and show that our faith is peaceful and fair, our legal system just and equitable and that our founder was "a mercy for the worlds".

Join us as we uncover the merciful reality of Islam and its just legal system with one of the premier scholars of Islam in the West.

The last true Ottoman Sultan

02-Feb-2020 17:30 - 03-Feb-2020 1:00
Free

Synopsis

In 1876, the Ottoman Empire was "the sick man of Europe". It had lost vast amounts of territory and was unable to defend its citizens in the face of European Imperialism. It seemed like its death was imminently inevitable. It was at this critical juncture that Sultan Abdul Hamid took the throne.

For the next 33 years, he fought with all his will to remove the empire's debts, defend its sacred territories, face up to colonial ambitions, fight two devastating wars and ultimately to revive the faith and pride of the Muslims in that great Prophetic inheritance that had been bequeathed to him; The Caliphate.

Join us as we shine a light on this incredible figure of Islamic History with a wonderful expert in late Ottoman History.
