Could there be a more frustrating issue plaguing our young people
than gender relations? Despite taking part in so many knowledge
seeking activities why are divorce rates amongst Muslims so high?
1 in 10 Muslims are now divorced. Why do an increasing number of
brothers go back to Muslim majority countries to find a bride?
Are sisters in the UK too demanding or disrespectful? Do brothers
in the UK lack chivalrous and true manliness? What can we do as a
community to help sisters over 30 who are unable to find husbands?
Is there any hope or do we continue to live in a state of denial?
What about Polygamy or Misyar Marriages? Are these really viable
alternatives or are they just wild dreams of men living in a
society saturated with sexual imagery. Perhaps some sisters feel
it is better to marry non-Muslim men, at least they are more
With all the tools for communication at our fingertips why is it
so hard to find what we want? Can I shake hands with a member of
the opposite sex? Why do I break into a sweat each time my eyes
meet that of a fellow Muslim sister / brother, and yet it's easy
to talk to Sally, Mandy or Tom? What if we just want to be friends?
Why are all the good men and women taken? Are men really from Mars
and women from Venus?
Join Dr Umar Abd-Allah in an open, honest, intelligent and informal
discussion, in what promises to be a though provoking event with a
difference. Entrance is free of charge. All are welcome.
