Peace For Humanity Conference 2011 - 'Muhammad the Merciful'

Wembley Arena 24 September 2011

For more information and booking please visit

This conference, organised by Minhaj-ul-Qur'an International and the Al-Hidayah team, will present the merciful and peaceful personality of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to the wider western Muslim youth, as well as non-Muslims, and how his life and teachings are relevant to our situation today.

God Almighty Himself has conferred upon his beloved Messenger (peace be upon him) the title of ‘Mercy for Humanity’.  And, as one bestowed with this title, the Messenger’s life was a paragon of peace, love and mercy to all those around him.  He was the originator of a system of just rule that had no previous precedent, and the architect of the enlightenment and civilisation as we know it.

In spite of the above, most of humanity is either not aware of his life and works, or is steeped in misinformation and distortions about him.

This conference will bring together a selection of speakers to discuss the various aspects of the life and personality of the beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), for us to remember God’s greatest favour to us, and to enlighten the public on various aspects of his life, personality and traits, in order for them to appreciate him and at the same time clarify misconceptions and misunderstandings.

This conference is a continuation of a series of conferences and residential training events that we have been hosting for the past decade (including Al-Hidayah events) in our attempt to teach and promote the moral and tolerant dimensions of Islam, especially among the youth in the West.

British Muslim group organizes ‘anti-terror’ summer camp to arm kids against extremism

LONDON — A Muslim conference for youths billed as an “anti-terror” summer camp opened Saturday in Britain, with the goal of teaching students how to rebuff extremists who try to recruit them at schools and in online chat rooms.
The three-day event hopes to equip hundreds of young British Muslims with arguments from the Qur’an on how to respond to people with radical beliefs, encounters some at the camp said happen regularly.
The issue of Islamist recruiting has made steady headlines in Britain after suspects in high-profile terrorism cases were reportedly radicalized while studying at elite U.K. universities or after listening to imams who preach holy war.

Hundreds attend three-day al-Hidayah event at University of Warwick campus to learn how to fight arguments of extremists.
After a modest breakfast came the first choice of the day: to take part in sporting activities ranging from five-a-side football to archery, or to join the Sunday morning nature stroll around the campus. Then it was down to the serious business: a series of lectures, workshops and presentations, punctuated by prayers and countless impromptu street-corner debates.
This is al-Hidayah 2010, a three-day event that kicked off on Saturday and attended by 1,300 Muslims – mainly young men and women – that has been billed as the UK’s first anti-terror camp.
