Luton Islamic Centre Presents:

BANK HOLIDAY SEMINAR.

WEDNESDAY 1st JANUARY 2020.

‘SOCIAL MEDIA! FRIEND OR FOE!?’

A 1 Day Seminar addressing important modern-day issues around the impact of Social Media.

Social Media has become an integral part of our daily lives, for adults and young people, but sadly in many cases this has become a major problem.

From the obsessiveness to look ‘flawless’ for that perfect selfie, to showing off wealth and privilege.

The impact of music, free-mixing, nudity and peer pressure to conform with the current trends.

Making many people feel unworthy, inadequate, lowly and more seriously to become spiritually affected and abandon their faith.

So, come and join us for this unique 1 Day Seminar with your family and friends to understand the problems attached to Social Media and the solution from an Islamic perspective.

We here at Luton Islamic have selected 3 experienced speakers to address the whole ‘Social Media’ issue from all viewpoints.
