  • Show a video explaining the history
  • Read testimonials shared by our Bosnian brothers and sisters
  • Share reflections on hate, discrimination, conflict and this year’s theme ‘Every Action Matters.’
  • Share a personal challenge we can all join in with
  • And pray for the victims and the survivors.

Please do join us so that we do not forget the victims and that we renew our efforts to challenge discrimination in all its forms.
We all must ensure that the injustice of the Bosnian genocide is remembered, the victims honoured and lessons learnt.

“A Closer Look At Segregation”
Saturday 30th May
18:00-19:45 (BST)

Segregation is a much contested issue in Muslim communities. Communities have brought along varying of degrees of segregation, with each opinion being suggested as ‘Islamic law’.

In a country whose cultural norms involve minimal segregation, Muslim practices can cause confusion and sometimes limit our engagement in society.

So, to what degree are our various attitudes to segregation a reflection of Eastern cultures and how much is actually taught by the Quran and sunnah?

To explore the truth behind gender segregation, Ahtsham Ali will peel back centuries of cultural interpretations to examine the authentic lifestyle of the Prophet and his companions in Medina, with some surprising discoveries…

Ustadh Ahtsham Ali has been leading scholars from a spectrum of backgrounds as they provide pastoral care and deal with the gritty issues facing Muslim prisoners across the UK. He has studied under one of the world’s leading Hadith scholars and jurists Sh Al-Judai.

Everyone welcome
