Shadows in the Sun - The Living Legacy of the Sahabah BIRMINGHAM

Event Date: 
Friday, 11 September, 2015 - 19:00 to Sunday, 13 September, 2015 - 19:00

Have you considered that today you are able to carry the Book of Allah because one man long ago sacrificed many sleepless nights to scrutinize every verse written on whatever animal hide, piece of wood, or stone that the companions could muster?

Have you considered that today your Islam was made possible because one woman long ago shielded the Prophet (sallah Allahu alayhi wassalam) with her entire body, bearing arrow after arrow impaling her body?

Or have you considered that today you comprehend the words of Allah (swt) because one boy long ago was made a prodigy, a genius, committed to the perpetual study of the Quran and its depth of wisdom?

In a specially prepared seminar, Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick gathers the remarkable contributions of the men and women around the Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam) to transform your kinship with the best generation to ever walk the earth.

Agenda for Change | As-Suffa Conference 2015

Event Date: 
Sunday, 30 August, 2015 - 12:00

Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves. (Al-Qur’an, Surah al-Ra’d)

To grow and develop is the essence of the soul- without striving for a greater cause or goal our souls would remain stagnant and wither away. Within the guidelines that our Creator has laid for us, we as a community must also make it incumbent upon ourselves to pool our resources, stand firm in the face of injustice and unite under the banner of goodness.

Join us at this groundbreaking conference where we discuss our identity as Muslims living in the UK.  We will look at our role, rights and responsibilities by drawing upon the compassionate and exemplary teachings of Islam. We will also propose and evaluate an Agenda for Change to be implemented on a personal, familial and societal level to ensure the Muslims of today and tomorrow positively contribute to, and become leaders of, the community without compromising any of their values.
