How to Discuss Questions About LGBT with Our Muslim Children
This course was delivered live but is currently not available as a live workshop. We have, however, left enrolment open for those who wish to view the recording of the workshop.
February is LGBT History Month. Most of our children will be exposed to assemblies and discussions about LGBT History at school. How should we, as Muslim parents, respond to this to ensure that our children’s iman remains intact and unaffected by this?
Our workshop will equip you with the knowledge and understanding needed to discuss LGBT issues taught in schools to your children effectively. This will help our children feel confident in their faith and allow them to express their feelings about what they have heard in school and ask questions. Parents cannot do this effectively if they do not have any Islamic guidance themselves.
Who is This Course For?
Parents in particular, and adults in the Muslim community who struggle with the fact that LGBT sentiments and actions are haram yet our children are exposed to them.
