Intensive Seminar 6-7 November 2017: Dr Hamed Al Hajri (Kuwait)

posted in: Events/Classes | 2

Introduction

Following the cowardly suicide bombing at a music concert in Manchester this year, Islamophobic attacks against the Muslim community soared to more than 500% and the Islamic faith was systematically tarnished as being intolerant and against peaceful co-existance with people of other faiths.  The majority of Muslims although sickened by the media onslaught were unequiped to defend and exonerate their religion.

We are running an intensive course on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th November 2017 designed to educate Muslims about how tolerance and peaceful co-existance are prescribed in our religion. This course will enrich attendees with knowledge and facts to counteract the misinformation being spread about Islam.  The course will cover the following topics:

  • Islam and tolerance
  • Examples of peaceful co-existence from the life of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him)
  • Examples of peaceful co-existence through out Islamic history and our present times
  • Coping with rising hate crimes, Islamaphobia and right wing bigotry
  • Open questions and answers with the invited speaker

The course is open for both men and women and all talks will be translated into English.

Dr Hamed al Hajri – is from the Salafi scholars in Kuwait.  He is currently the Head of the Faculty of Comparative Fiqh & Shariah at Kuwait University.  He is extremely active in propagating Islam through his teachings and written works.

    Why do you only promote ‘salafi’ or more accurately wahabi teachings? I don’t see one sunni scholar here? if you do invite an actual scholar, Like Shiekh Abduallah bin Bayah, or Dr. Abdulhakim Murad, Dr Umar Farouk AbduAllah, etc.. you will find it will solve most of your problems.Ironic that you refuse to do this when you speak of tolerance! I’m currently writing my dissertation for university based on this centre. I’m defending islam and muslims as I care deeply about our beautiful faith. But I struggle to present places like this as examples to prove non-muslim/haters wrong, because I know that hateful wahabi teachings, that are closer to the jahili way of thinking than the salaf al saleh, are being thought and promoted here.

    May Allah guide you.

      Dear Sir

      The reason we do not invite the “scholars” you mentioned is because we are very particular to who we allow to teach in our mosque. We will certainly not invite individuals who promote ideas and beliefs that oppose the pure nature of Islamic monotheism and the authentic sunnah.

      The irony of your comment is that “Shaykh Abdullah bin Bayyah” is currently employed by a “Wahhabi” institution in Saudi Arabia which you consider hateful and jaahil.

      I welcome you to attend and benefit from our event next week as it may help overcome your warped understanding of our beliefs.
