The World Muslim Leadership Forum (WMLF) hosted its third biennial conference on the 25th and 26th of September 2014 in London, exploring the global challenges facing the Ummah’s (Muslim Community) leadership in these difficult times.
With Muslim leadership being needed in every aspect of life – the world is changing and Muslims are required to be agents of change. The WMLF therefore used this opportunity to highlight the areas in which Muslims face significant challenges and the ways in which we are also making unique contributions on a global, national and local stage. Some of the challenges faced by the Muslim community everyday include
- Radicalisation and Terrorism
- Civil war
- Environmental degradation
- Hunger and poverty
At the conference, over 100 delegates and speakers attended, including the Rt Hon. Dominic Grieve, Rt Hon Stephen Timms and Sir Gordon Conway. The conference themed around Global Challenges and Contributions for the Muslims in the 21st Century and discussed several crucial topics. This included: Muslim women leadership; the successes and progress made as well as areas for further improvement, Islamic finance, interfaith dialogue and harmony, and global food and water security.
