Living in a western society, it’s not unusual to face challenges when trying to reconcile western values with Islamic principles. The concept of the “Muslim identity” is now something many of us are internally conflicted about.
What does it mean to be Muslim?
Can we still live in the west and hold onto our Islamic morals and values?
What duties do we have?
Is being Muslim, something in the heart?
Or is it something more?
Join us for an inspiring gathering that will expound upon the core foundations that make up our Muslim identity.
