I returned late Sunday from a 4 day camp in the lush Lincolnshire countryside entitled ‘LIVING ISLAM 2011’.
This tri-year event is organised by the Islamic Society of Britain and transforms into a platform for truly the very best in British Islam. It was a glorious vignette of cutting edge Muslim thinking coupled with showcase halaal / kosher entertainment!
I have never attended a family gathering of several thousand Muslims that covered practically every school of Muslim thought from Sufi to Salafi to even Progressive! At times I was left stunned at the organisation and cheeky gatherings of young Muslims clearly in love!
Wow! I have a waited a long time for something that has the potential to become a blue print from Muslim communities up and down Great Britain.
English Defence League et al watch out we Muslims are here to stay and beautify Great Britain if not the entire cosmos...Inshallah...
