18-31.06.03 | MAB 'To Be A Muslim. Think Globally, Act Locally' Campaign

With the successes of the recent rallies against the war and injustice in Palestine, the Muslim community in the UK is now asking itself 'What next?'

Aiming to shed some light on the current situation, the theme of the conferences addresses the vision and strategy of the Muslim community in Brtiain. Most relevant and inspiring is to focus on the return and revival of the Islamic Civilisation and the role of Muslims in the UK - as individuals and communities - in working for this revival.

The conferences are followed by short intensive courses on saviours of the Islamic spirit. Focussing on personalities in the past who have traversed the path of revival, we are fulfilling many important goals –
connecting our efforts to history, gaining confidence and hope, learning from the past how to proceed and what pitfalls to avoid and providing role-models and exemplars.

Following the intensive courses, the participants will be invited to join the London Seminars – a series of intensive 1-day seminars to be run every 6 – 8 weeks to cover two areas: Deep Knowledge of the Essentials and Developing Critical Thinking and Understanding.

Also as part of this series, the youth and campus section have organised an outdoor youth camp in July which will focus on great Muslim personalities and the task facing the youth today.

The 'To Be A Muslim' Tour is part of MAB's ‘Knowing Islam’ campaign.
