Event Details

Understanding Islam UK is pleased to invite you to our joint Nov-Dec 2016 educational session on Saturday 10 Dec 2016.

Programme for the day

16:00 - Arrival and registration

16:30 - UnMosqued - Documentary film (running time: 72min)

17:45 - Q&A Session

18:30 - Dua and close

Unmosqued was filmed and released by a group of young Muslims in America and it aims to engage people who have been disconnected from their local mosque and explore the various reasons that have led to this sentiment. It addresses questions such as:

  1. Are our mosques offering the safe intellectual and physical space to all age groups and genders?
  2. Do the mosques get involved in any community based projects which are open to all religions?
  3. Do our imams effectively address the current issues faced by Muslims today in their sermons, and in a language which is understood by the majority of young Muslims? 
After the film we will open the floor for a discussion on the above questions.

Organiser

Understanding Islam UK (UIUK)

Understanding Islam UK (UIUK) is a non-political, non-sectarian Muslim organisation which aims to propagate Islam through peaceful dialogue and present Islam in a way that befits the teachings of Allah Almighty. We are registered with the Charity Commission UK. 

Our work takes the form of educational sessions. We focus on sound religious education which is fit for purpose in the 21st century. We hope to empower Muslims to approach the Qur’an and Sunnah with confidence and open-mindedness.  Our academic and inclusive approach is aimed at inculcating the spirit of enquiry with the aim of uniting Muslims around the core of Islam. 

We consciously encourage participation from women and non-Muslims. Our mission is simple: Let’s join hands in understanding God’s guidance. 

We aim to deal with all issues in a non-confrontational manner in the form of dialogue and academic discussions. We offer family-friendly and inlusive educational sessions where open dialogue is encouraged. Our sessions are free to attend. Please click here for more detail on our website.
