Muzammal Hussain, from Wisdom In Nature, will be delivering a khutba at the Inclusive Mosque Initiative’s (IMI’s) inclusive jummah salah (prayer).
“I am honoured to have been invited by IMI to deliver a khutba at their Friday prayer. I would really like to use this opportunity to invite us to reflect on our relationship with the earth, and how we might respond when it calls out in pain.
To me, this call from the earth – is a call to heal. It involves a journey of awareness and healing: of our selves, our beliefs (acknowledged and unacknowledged), our communities, and the structures and paradigms that our lives are embedded into.
It means giving attention and ‘listening’ to all parts – for the voices that cry out in pain are the voices that we have marginalised. Yet, every voice offers itself to be witnessed and included, so that together we – individually, and as communities in nature, in our diversity and beauty – can be healed, all parts can come together as we become whole.
I look forward to sharing and connecting with you this Friday in Bethnal Green .”
As with all IMI events, Muslims of all denominations are welcome to pray with us, and peoples of all faiths and none. Children, toddlers and babies are also welcome and have free reign to climb on adults during prayer. You can stand or sit wherever you feel comfortable.
The venue is wheelchair accessible.
Prayers will be followed by vegan and vegetarian refreshments, tea and coffee.
