    Nour - Domestic Violence is pleased and thrilled to bring you our very first event of the year: a unique seminar that we are confident will not leave you disappointed! Read on for more information with regards to this and our amazing speakers!

    Unfortunately with domestic abuse being a subject brushed far under the carpet, for too long, we as a community have become immune to its severity and effects. We have become hard in our hearts at the reality our people are facing today, and in becoming ignorant to these battles that take place in our homes, we have turned our backs on the oppressed — we have left them to suffer alone.

    This upcoming seminar will endeavour to revive this topic of domestic violence, to illustrate its severity so that we as a community may be more known to its dangers, its effects, its truth...so that we may understand why this issue needs tackling, and help.

    REMEBER: if our ameer ul mu'mineed Caliph Mu'tasim (may Allah be pleased with him) sent 30,000 of his own soliders to rescue ONE woman, because she was about to be touched in a way no woman should ever be touched, then what are WE doing for these thousands of victims that are undergoing abuse every single day and night, whatever the form may be?

    Come and find out why it is your duty to eradicate this type of injustice. Come and find out why you must not think twice about assisting. Come and stand in the frontline with your brother, or sister, to let them know that they are not alone -- in this battle at home.
