Further Exploration of Islam

16/11/2020 @ 7:00 PM - 29/11/2021 @ 7:30 PM


A deeper look at Islamic Creed going beyond the basics of Islamic belief and more toward practicalities. For new Muslims and born Muslims

You are probably here because you have either already attended the taster session on Exploring the Fundamentals of Islam, or you are already aware of these and want to take a deeper look into faith as a Muslim.

The sessions in this particular event are flexible and one-to-one to help develop your knowledge, understanding and hopefully your practice of Islam. Chances are you are a new Muslim or you are a born Muslim who wants to just get to grips with the practical aspects of Islam. You might even be already practicing in the form of performing salah, but there is something lacking. Do you feel like your salah is almost robotic or on autopilot? Do you often feel like you like khushu or concentration in Salah? Or maybe you start salah with good concentration but can never keep that same level of concentration? Whatever you’re struggling with, do join this session. It is free.

We could look at:

  1. Establishing your Muslim identity and salah in the workplace
  2. Prayer spaces and related etiquettes
  3. The Holy Qur’an and your relationship with the Words of Allah
  4. Fasting and how to make it easier

I have people asking me about Islam all the time and discussions typically feature:

  • Acts of Worship;
  • Fasting during Ramadan;
  • Festivals;
  • Cultural Differences;
  • and much more!

I have found that Muslims are often talked about, but not always heard from, so I am striving to change that by helping people break down barriers; combat negative stereotypes; and most importantly giving you an answer to your questions!

If you have colleagues within your organisation asking questions, and are searching for information about Islam, why not contact me see how I can help you? I will demonstrate Islam to you as a ‘lived experience’, including the practicalities of applying Islamic teachings in everyday life. I have delivered workshops and interactive presentations in schools, colleges and community organisations since 2005, and I can offer you something similar for your next Staff Development Event, Diversity Training or Team Away Day.

Who is this session for?:

This event is for you if you are a Muslim and want to explore your faith deep down to the roots. This is a safe space for you to ask anything, absolutely anything you want.

Take it to the next level?

Advanced Level: How can we bring more Khushu into our Salah?

Have you ever completed your salah, and been left with no change in the way you feel, or cannot remember what you have just read, without much reflection on what you did or what your read within that salah? I am working on a very in-depth course of study to go back to the basics of salah and bring that much needed khushu and concentration within our salah. Join me on these sessions, and whether you start now or later, this free course will be tailored to you as an individual. You will be in your own personal journey to improve your salah and reconnect yourself with Allah through your salah.

I, for one certainly need this for myself. I am not an expert in khushu and the elusive concentration is not something you can just get . Khushu is something that we need to keep working on, and so this free course will continue to run for the foreseeable future even through the pandemic- and while lockdown remains I feel there is a huge opportunity for us all to make improvements in our salah from this moment. You don’t need to wait for the next formal session. Feel free to make direct email contact via atiquemiah2@gmail.com. I am keen to support you! In many ways we need to get back to the fundamentals of salah.

I look forward to you joining in soon.
