The 1st July 2012 saw The Deen Institute's debut presentation, “Reviving the Muslim Mind”, at the 49th annual Federation of Student Islamic Societies conference, held this year at the University of Manchester. After running several well-received fringe sessions on the second day of the conference, with a highly encouraging turnout, the Institute made its inaugural address to an audience of hundreds of students, with the topic of discussion proving to resonate with many in the audience.
"Very professional, intellectual & competent. An important initiative for shaping discourse around our community and educating." Mr Ahmed Gatnash, Vice President of Newcastle University Islamic Society.
The fringe sessions, lecture and stimulating Q&A session, proved highly successful with an overwhelmingly positive response from enthusiastic students looking to get involved in the Institute’s upcoming courses commencing October 2012.
"I found it to be the most engaging, interesting and urgent Islamic discussion I have heard. I am dismayed not to have heard of it before today. InshaAllah I will find out more about it with a view to becoming involved, and maybe hosting an event at York. I am a Muslim student of English literature who has been trying to grapple with philosophy alone and without Islamic guidance. I am sure that I am far from the only one in this position. I believe this organisation has potential to be of immense benefit to Muslim students in the UK, and would like to volunteer in any way possible." Mr Ahmed Madi, Welfare Officer of University of York Islamic Society.
