Islamic Port

Islamic Port is a revolutionary grassroots initiative aimed at articulating a relevant mainstream understanding of Islam that is dynamic, proactive and relevant to young British Muslims.

Through public lectures, seminars, workshops and cultural programs, we engage with real issues through legitimate orthodox scholarship. IslamicPort is about erasing the schism between public and private discourse over issues affecting Islam and Muslims in the modern world – we believe in open debate and meaningful discussion.

Islamic Port is based on clear principles: 

  • a rejection of all forms of terrorism; 

  • a commitment to the revival of mercy, public service and a concern for social justice as emblematic Islamic duties;

  • a commitment to the emergence of a distinct British Muslim identity that encourages the active involvement of British Muslims in social, public and economic life of Britain; and 

  • inspiring young people to become active agents for peace and positive change in their local communities

These themes are grounded in Islamic scholarship, tradition and civilisation. The project is committed to creating spaces where young Muslims can engage with these ideas in a meaningful, open and creative way.
