Violent Extremism -
Violent extremism is one of the scourges of our time. Not only does it kill and injure innocent people, including women and children, around the world, it sows the seeds of suspicion and mistrust between communities and nations, and fuels anti-Muslim bigotry.
Minhaj-ul-Quran is probably one of few major grassroots Islamic organisations tackling the problem, not just through condemnations, but also addressing the ideological and theological factors at the root of the problem.
Although we recognise that there many other influences involved, such as alienation, political grievances, criminality and other psychosocial factors, the so-called ‘push’ factors, no approach can be effective without addressing the ‘pull’ factors of ideology and theological misconceptions.
We have the pleasure of welcoming the world-famous scholar and authority on Islam, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, to deliver a series of crucial lectures on the main causes of violent extremism, and to provide a much-needed counter-narrative to the claims of extremist preachers and groups.
He will clarify the meanings of the various verses of the Qur’an and Hadith’s of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) that are misinterpreted, taken out of context, or even mistranslated in order to mislead young people into extremism, along with challenging other narratives, such the establishment of a Caliphate and the issue Jihad as a violent struggle.
Along with this will be a wide range of workshops, including counter-extremism, politics, examination of British Values, confidence-building, mastering social media and lots more, as well as Nasheeds & Qawali evenings, spiritual activities and sport. As always, this will be an unrivalled event in terms of quality and depth, and a truly life-changing experience.
