Although it has never been easier to search for a partner through the click of a button, many Muslims still seek the best way to navigate the process while adhering to their faith. As a follow-up to our event ‘Love at First Swipe,’ The City Circle will host a session that offers advice and experience from Ajmal Masroor, Imam and counsellor at The Barefoot Institute.

While we focused on the challenges singles and couples face on their journey to successful relationships at our event in February, our upcoming event on 9 March will offer some strategies and Q&A on the topic from renowned Imam and speaker, Ajmal Masroor.

Join us as we discuss the quintessential questions on relationships such as gender relations, what makes a successful relationship, and the best way to prepare for one.

Please note there is no cost to attend the event, but we require registration to ensure we have capacity for all of our guests. Please book your place through Eventbrite.
