A Ruther­glen mosque held a work­shop which high­lighted the is­sues of so­cial me­dia and what tech­niques Mus­lims can use to con­vey the peace­ful mes­sage of Is­lam.

The Min­haj ul Qu­ran on Green­hill Road, held the re­treat in the form of Al Hi­dayah, mean­ing the path of guid­ance, on Mon­day, Jan­uary 2.

The work­shop was or­gan­ised jointly by the mosque and Al Hi­dayah UK to bring the ex­cite­ment of learn­ing in a fun and in­ter­ac­tive way with mainly young peo­ple all over Scot­land. Its aim was to dis­cuss the broader vi­sion of Min­haj ul Qu­ran in­ter­na­tional and op­por­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple to con­trib­ute.

Lead­ing guest, Dr Hus­sein Qadri and world renowned Is­lamic scholar, Dr Tahir ul Qadri at­tended the work­shop along with lo­cal Is­lamic scholar Sheikh Re­han Raza and Dr Zahid Iqbal, Al Hi­dayah or­gan­iser.

Sheikh Re­han Raza kicked off events by talk­ing about so­cial me­dia and its in­ter­ac­tion. He dis­cussed the im­por­tance of so­cial me­dia and what tech­niques could be used to con­vey the true peace­ful mes­sage of Is­lam and what best ways to chal­lenge the me­dia on mis­lead­ing in­for­ma­tion.

This was fol­lowed by Dr Zahid’s pre­sen­ta­tion on how young peo­ple can be­come men­tors to one an­other in bet­ter un­der­stand­ing the val­ues and ful­fill­ing of Min­haj ul Qu­ran in­ter­na­tional.

At the end of the work­shop, key speaker Dr Hus­sein ad­dressed ev­ery­one by stat­ing how the work­shop should help ev­ery­one to en­gage pos­i­tively in their so­ci­eties. His main fo­cus was on the im­por­tance of seek­ing the cor­rect ed­u­ca­tion to achieve suc­cess in their lives.

The event ended with the au­di­ence pos­ing ques­tions to Dr Hus­sein fol­lowed by a prayer for ev­ery­one.
