Tranquility Amidst Turbulence
30 March 2011, London
The aim of this gathering is to discuss and put into perspective the upheavals taking place in North Africa and the Middle East and to also share general principles of dealing with the challenges of change and social cohesion especially among young British Muslims.
Luton is one of the most diverse cities in the United Kingdom, with people coming from and representing diverse cultures, religions, languages and experiences. It is important to acknowledge and see the strength of this diversity. This special programme brings together two of contemporary Islam’s prominent scholars, Habib Umar bin Hafiz and Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad, providing a rare opportunity not only for young people but also all those who work in the frontlines of community relations to explore and get clarity on the faith’s teachings on a variety of challenging contemporary issues, particularly the challenges of living, working and making a better community together.
