On 11th December 2013, in association with Inspire, the advocacy group for Muslim women’s rights, Usama Hasan delivered theological training on promoting balance and countering extremism to a dozen women in Wandsworth. Dr. Hasan’s presentation covered balance and extremism, including different interpretations of ummah (nation) and jihad (struggle), and ended with the problems of literalism when interpreting Islamic scripture. Case studies included domestic violence, slavery, polygamy and terrorism.
Quilliam would like to thank Inspire and the London Borough of Wandsworth for hosting this event.
