About this event
Islamophobia is on the rise.
With the rampant misrepresentation of Islam in the media and widespread illiteracy of Islamic history, it’s easy to lean away from our identity as Muslim women.
How can we remain steadfast on the deen in the face of the onslaught against Islam? How can we find a sense of security and confidence? How can we find the strength to wear our Islamic identity proudly?
If there is anyone whose character and actions we should look toward for answers, it is that of Syeda Zainab (may Allah be pleased with her).
She (RA) had seen her brother, sons and nephews slaughtered mercilessly, yet stood before the tyrant behind it all with her life was at risk, and delivered her renowned speech of defiance. Her strength of character and fearlessness has reverberated through the centuries, allowing her legacy to provide a role model for all women; an embodiment of incredible strength in the face of despair.
Minhaj Sisters UK presents a new webinar: ‘Syeda Zainab RA: Empowering Muslim Women In the Face of Islamophobia’ with Basima Hassan Qadri.
Join us on Saturday 21st August 2021 at 13:00 GMT!
