Islam is more than five pillars. It shapes our identity and our character.

Shaykh Haytham has distilled his life’s learning into the principles and traits that should characterise us and enable us to gain Allah’s pleasure. In his third talk in this monthly series at The City Circle he will impart the core Islamic principles of establishing justice, freedom and equality for all, as well as the importance of ensuring that everyone is treated with dignity, honour and respect.

He will explain why Muslims can only achieve success when we are with the Jama'ah and love all people.

Are you road worthy? Are you on the straight road? Join the talk so you are equipped to pass your test.
