Book launch: Reclaiming the Mosque by Jasser Auda

About this event...

Women are finally reclaiming spaces in every industry and across every society as we speak. But what of the role of women in the mosque? With so many prayer spaces ignoring the needs of women nowadays, this book is looking backwards. Backwards, but to a more forward-thinking time. It explores the prophetic tradition and Quranic sources to understand what should actually be happening in our mosques. Reclaiming the Mosque is an exploration of how this partitioning of gender came about and where this has brought us to today. So, join us now and be a part of a fresh, new approach to this pertinent subject.

This July we will be launching Professor Jasser Auda’s latest book, Reclaiming the Mosque, to understand the historical lead up to the relationship of Muslim women with the mosque today. Sign up to the course and receive a FREE copy of the book, to take home with you. At this one day event, Professor Auda will draw on his own extensive research into this area to guide you through:

■ Historical accounts of women in Islam and the role that they played both in and out of the mosque (even in the battlefield)

■ How to avoid and combat misinterpretations of hadith and Quranic stipulations

■ The original design and layout of the Prophet’s mosque in Medina

■ Dress codes, community interaction and behavioural etiquettes in prayer spaces

■ The emergence of single gender mosques, and much more...

Islam requires us to treat women with dignity in all spaces, private and public, so join Claritas Books together with Islamic Institute for Development and Research and Maqasid Institute as we learn how to reclaim this position in all, not just some, of our mosques. Register now and study with the learned Professor Jasser Auda in-person at our London venue, or online from wherever you are in the world. Discounts available for early sign ups too, so get involved today!
