AlMaghrib representing at the GPU in London this month

The Global Peace and Unity Conference in London on the weekend of 23rd/24th November is one of the largest Islamic conferences in Europe and attracts thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Scholars, leaders, thinkers, performers from across the globe are invited to take the stage in a packed schedule of back to back talks surrounding issues that concern us Muslims today living in the West and creates a platform for meaningful dialogue. It not only hosts the conference but also houses a vibrant and packed exhibition bazaar where independent retailers and businesses can showcase their products from across the UK. A truly family filled weekend with lots to do.

Every year, a selection of our AlMaghrib Instructors get invited to take the stage and speak to thousands of attendees and this year was no different. Sh Muhammad AlShareef and Sh Dr Yasir Qadhi were also invited this year to speak. You can check out their videos below:
