Description

An-Nisa Society presents a two-day workshop with Shaykha Halima Krausen

Building Resilience - Nurturing Communities

an exploration of our changing world and how to engage with it

The world continues to be complex and confusing. In fact it can be said that we are on the precipice of ecological and human disaster as we experience the destructive impact of climate change as well as an unprecedented number of people being uprooted and living as refugees due to wars and poverty.

Muslim communities are disproportionately impacted by these social ills such as poverty, unemployment, displacement, mental illness, and sexual exploitation. In all this chaos there is little time for thinking outside the box or to invest in ideas and initiatives that will help to stop our internal implosion.

An-Nisa Society is offering a two-day text based workshop with the eminent European Muslim scholar Shaykha Halima Krausen to reconsider some of these issues. Over the two days we will explore spiritual insights with practical outcomes that we can take back to our own spheres of work and lives. Please join us for what will be a very thought provoking experience.

An-Nisa Society working to build resilience and strong communities

An-Nisa Society has for over three decades been at the forefront of raising pertinent contemporary issues as well as establishing initiatives to address our current challenges. Issues have included setting up the first accredited Islamic Counselling course, producing a series of books entitled Cycle of Life on sexual health from an Islamic perspective, resources on Muslim fatherhood and issues around Muslim family life. Our on-going working includes our Supplementary Muslim School established in 1986 – an independent Muslim community madrassa, as well our text based workshops with Shaikha Halima Krausen – Europe’s most eminent woman scholar.

What are text based workshops?

Since 1992 we have been working with Shaikha Halima Krausen on a series of text-based workshops. This involves studying a particular theme using the Quran as the primary source but also hadith and commentary by scholars and contemporary thinkers. Shaikha Halima brings her own unique expertise in creating a synergy between Western and Islamic thinking on a broad range of issues. The core objectives of the workshops are to enable participants to use their critical faculties to explore both personal and wider society issues.

Our workshop covers the following areas:

  1. Islamic Studies
  2. History
  3. Philosophy
  4. Healing the Self
  5. Jewish Muslim Dialogue
