The team invited two speakers, one of whom was a resident speaker and teacher, Dr Uthman Lateef and the second, a well know personality in the Muslim community, Hamza Tzortzis. With the event oversubscribed and the venue filled soon after doors opened; the vibe was one of positive energy and a welcoming atmosphere; true to the Al-Ihsan Projects tradition.

The second speaker, Hamza Tzortzis focussed on the reality of happiness and the mechanisms to facilitate ones acquisition of true happiness. Hamza delved into the psychology of how we perceive happiness in our lives and the triggers which both satiate, the need for being happy and how your happiness can become a pure emotion. He tried to get the audience to realise the root for why we are in continuous pursuit of happiness and sometimes how it is merely manufactured to mask other, less desirable, emotional faculties.

Hamza’s unique and refreshing style captivated the audience and provided much needed food for thought. He finished off by emphasising the need for becoming a student of knowledge, how one should embark on acquiring knowledge via a teacher and not just relying books alone. Thus linking the increase in knowledge to amount of happiness one experiences.

Dr Uthman Lateef – Overcoming depression

The team invited two speakers, one of whom was a resident speaker and teacher, Dr Uthman Lateef and the second, a well know personality in the Muslim community, Hamza Tzortzis. With the event oversubscribed and the venue filled soon after doors opened; the vibe was one of positive energy and a welcoming atmosphere; true to the Al-Ihsan Projects tradition.

Dr Uthman Lateef started off the line up, focusing on the topic of how one can overcome depression, achieve contentment in one’s life and becoming more appreciative of what the Almighty has given the Muslims, especially in the UK. He also provided some poignant reminders to help us contextualise, our personal states in comparison to those, who had far bigger challenges in their lives.

This lecture was extremely beneficial and provided the audience with an insight into how certain types of anxieties could be remedied. Dr Uthman explained, in a very methodical manner, the steps that should be taken to tackle obstacles which impede on our spirituality, causing us to be distracted from focusing on our worship and religious enrichment. The end goal being, in sha Allah, one that annihilates depression from ones life and allows individuals to become more productive.

Shaykh Waleed Al-Madani – The Muslim Code

The Muslim CodeAl-Ihsan Projects “The Muslim Code” event was delivered in Slough by two young and fresh speakers, Shaykh Yusuf Zahaby and Shaykh Waleed al Madani. Both graduates of the illustrious luminary, Darul Uloom in Bury, UK.

Shaykh Waleed, on his first visit to Slough, spoke about the diversity found within the art of Dawah. He focused on how some Muslims over emphasise the concept of just ‘Dawah’ rather than focussing on ones own character and conduct first. The rectification of ones character which then leads to, the ones involved in the field of propagating the Deen, being able to deliver a more powerful and effective form of ‘Dawah.’
