Public Lecture by Habib Ali and Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad.
By caravan, sea and on foot, Muslim traders spread wealth and faith throughout the world - from the Silk Road to the Sahara and beyond. Their good conduct and savvy business acumen helped create great societies. Their peaceful ways won people over. In an age of so-called “disaster capitalism” what is the role of Muslim business people in bringing good ethics and a spiritual consciousness back to what has become a dog-eat-dog world?
This event is co-organised with Islamic Circles and Wharf Muslim Association.
