The first course explored the impact of eastern culture on our practices at births, deaths and marriages.

This second course will explore the tensions of living in the west when our outlook and values are often at odds with society.

Why is culture an issue?

Culture shapes our thoughts and actions.

Unless we see through it Culture dominates our life and choices.

While society is preoccupied with pleasure, acquisition and labels

Islam is a set of principles that enable you to live successfully in this life and the next

How can women can find balance when the east pushes them to subservience and the west to unbridled feminism?

How can you raise your children to value goodness over gadgets?

And how can you escape modern slavery to debt and credit culture?

Instead of surrendering to culture there is a way to forge your way through life without compromising your principles
