The Beauty in Islamic Contemplation

The Beauty in Islamic Contemplation


Colonel North Room, Kirkstall Abbey Visitor Centre

With the Nur Ashki Jerrahi sufi order in Leeds, led by Suleiman Salaam and Sahil Sefer Warsi

Extremism and the media can portray a dim view of Islam but what of Islamic contemplation and the emphasis on love and beauty ? Join us in explorations of these central Islamic emphases with talks, shares and “remembrance” – sufi zhikir. There will be an evening celebratory zhikir in Chapel Allerton this evening also.

Part of the 2019 Kirkstall Abbey Mindfulness, Wellbeing & Spirituality Festival. Organised in collaboration with Leeds Mindfulness & Positive Emotion Enhancement Centre.

No need to book – just turn up.
