LOVE & PRAY CONFERENCE
“…the life of the heart is with Allah and there is no life for it without that.” (Ibn al Qayyim)
This world is a race, and each of us is running - to find a meaning and purpose, fleeing towards that which we love, towards a shelter from our struggles and pain. Craving for love in perennial optimism, we hope to desperately illuminate the darkness of our soul. Yearning to be accepted, for the recesses of our heart to be acknowledged and appreciated. Waiting for the fairy tale to come true.
Through this talk, we invite you to connect yourself to the Beloved by discovering some of His Most Beautiful Names and Attributes, and how they manifest in our own lives. We invite you to bond your hearts to the most sublime and beautiful knowledge in existence, a bond that can never disappoint, and never break.
LOVE FOR GOD, THE GREATEST LOVE STORY

WE ARE NOT LOST
SPEAKERS: HARRY FEAR
We have all had our hearts broken by something; be it the loss of a loved one, the end of a romantic partnership, or the heart-cracking pain we feel when our brethren are killed in war zones like Gaza.
But when we are in the most exquisite of pain, how do we cope?
In some cultures and communities, some sufferers turn to alcohol.
But as believers we embark on ‘journeys’ to find our strength and heal ourselves. We often end up writing new chapters in our lives in which painful contemplation is all-prevalent.
But how do we go? And where do we go?
STILL I RISE: PHENOMENAL WOMEN
A woman is a powerhouse of strength and a reservoir of dignity. She was not created lightly, neither was she given life in vain. Her aura is akin to that strong ancient tree that everyone clings to for life and love. A tree with roots deep within the earth, yet branches far above the sky. Branches that support, nourish, and shelter everyone that they come in contact with - those who nest in permanently, and also those who fly away after brief rest. But the real strength of those branches lies in her deep and nurtured, yet unseen, roots - the faith in her heart, and the submission of her soul to her Only Creator and Sustainer. If she recognises this fact, she connects to the Source of All Strength and will never wither away, come storm or hail. And if she fails to see it, alas she lets go of her ethereal Divinely-gifted potential and sways to every gust of wind that seeks to imbalance her.
Come... find your roots.
