We are delighted to announce that our very first Seekers Convention took place on Sunday 24 February 2019. The event attracted a wide audience from various paths of life, and discussed and evaluated issues around faith and identity in the 21st century.
The procession was kick started by our host, Rahim Jung, who anchored the events of the day, by introducing Ustadh Mohammed Hafizur Rahman who opened the convention with a heart warming recitation of the holy Quran. This was soon followed by a welcome speech by Shaykh Shams Adduha, talks by Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad, Shaykh Zahir Mahmood and Shaykh Hasan Ali, as well as performances by nasheed artist, Mikhaeel Mala.
The convention highlighted a number of issues faced by Muslims as a result of social obscurity and technological advances, resulting in obstacles and questions around our Iman. Each speaker highlighted a common theme and the importance of Muslim Institutions and their activities in the UK.
Ebrahim College has become one of the most prominent Islamic seminaries in the West. It was established in 2003 as a Darul Uloom style seminary appropriate for the modern world. The aim was to benefit from the rigour and credibility of the traditional Darul Uloom and, where it was deemed beneficial, merge it with the best in modern curriculum development, pedagogy, technology and research. We hope to continue growing and spreading the good work but are only able to do this with your support.
Participants at the convention had the opportunity to raise some funds and raised a whopping, £25,000 with their good intention and generosity. If you missed the opportunity to donate towards Ebrahim College, you can donate now by clicking here.

We hope that the event was both beneficial and spiritually enriching. We hope that this is the first of many conventions of its kind.
