Arslan Baz - 12th October 2015

Our age is one of rapid change, disruptive technologies and earth shaking geopolitical events.

Our Final Destination

5th October 2015

By Sumaiya Gangat As many of our family and friends begin to return from their once in a lifetime journey of Hajj, we meet them with eager anticipation of their stories from their pilgrimage and travels.

Getting Back to Basics

Sumaiya Gangat - 27th September 2015

It is easy to get lost in our busy lives whether we’re engrossed in our education, work life or as busy parents tasked with the responsibilities that come as part of raising children.

Where is our humanity?

Sumaiya Gangat - 5th September 2015

It has taken a deeply disturbing image of a young Syrian boy named Aylan Kurdi who was swept up on a Turkish beach for Britain to stand up and take notice of the current refugee crisis. From politicians to citizens, we have been aware of the crisis but very few of us have realised the…

Celebrating the Achievements of Muslim faith Schools

1st Ethical - 25th August 2015

Truth is an elusive thing these days. Gone are the days of accurate reporting by the mainstream media. Repeat something enough times and people start to believe it. One such example is the narrative that faith schools, in particular, Muslim faith schools are not ‘preparing Muslim students for life in modern day Britain’. But at…

Recently Darul Uloom Dewsbury was covered negatively in the press for being insular, conservative, and intolerant.
