The Muslimah’s Renaissance

The Muslimah’s Renaissance

 

The Muslimah’s Renaissance is “an Islamic Awareness Week campaign of workshops for ISOCs … to be hosted at 20+ universities in spring 2014,” according to its website.[1] Islamic Awareness Week, an annual series of lectures and workshops held on university campuses across the UK, is a campaign run by the Islamic Society of Britain,[2] one of the oldest Muslim Brotherhood institutions in Britain.[3] The Muslimah’s Renaissance speakers are Alima Ashfaq and Sahar al-Faifi.[4]

Alima Ashfaq has worked in a leadership position for the AlMaghrib Institute,[5] founded in 2002 by Muhammad Alshareef, an outspoken anti-Semite who has written a paper entitled “Why The Jews Were Cursed”.[6] She has also worked for the UK Islamic Mission (UKIM),[7] an organisation “founded by individuals wishing to promote the message of the Jama’at-e-Islami in Britain”.[8] Her Twitter account suggests that she wishes to see Israel destroyed:

Sahar al-Faifi is a senior FOSIS official,[9] and claims to have worked for the Cordoba Foundation,[10] an organisation identified by David Cameron as “a political front for the Muslim Brotherhood”.[11] She is a self-described “Islamist” who has expressed hatred for Shia Muslims and argues that women who dress provocatively are responsible for sexism:

Undisguised anti-Semitism:

Supporters of the Muslimah’s Renaissance include Mohammad Akram Nadwi, who is endorsed by anti-Semitic suicide-bombing enthusiast Yusuf Qaradawi;[12] Omar Suleiman, also of the AlMaghrib Institute;[13] and Fatima Barkatulla of extreme Salafi group, the Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA).[14]
