Families and friends: fights and feuds

Muslim MOT with Shaykh Haytham Tamim

Date: Friday 31 January 2020

Time: 18.45 doors open. 19.00 start. Ending at 20.30

Venue: Abrar House, 45 Crawford Place, London W1H 4LP

Islam commands us to be good to our family and parents and establish a society based on goodness.

Yet the reality is that dealing with people is incredibly difficult. With family feuds and awkward in-laws, maintaining ties isn’t always straightforward.

Where do you draw the line in any relationship? What are the limits?

How can we strike a balance between the obligation of remaining connected to our blood ties, and protecting ourselves from abuse?

As part of our Muslim MOT series, Shaykh Haytham Tamim will look at what it means to a person of value - in the eyes of Allah and in the lives of others.
