Surely Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition. (Ar-Ra`d 13:11)
In light of the success of men in most aspects of entrepreneurship and everyday workings of the world, this charity dinner brings together well known, successful sister speakers to debate and discuss what women can do to make a change to their circumstances and play a major part in the world around them. The discussions will inspire and motivate you to become successful in your subject areas or give you new ideas to succeed in line with the teachings of the Quran and Sunnat.

In her spare time, she has enjoyed helping sisters develop their personal, community, businessand project ideas. She used to spend a lot of her time delivering lectures at ISOCs and various Islamic conferences. However, she has now decided to focus her efforts in helping sisters achieve their dunya and akhirah dreams. She is particularly keen on sisters who wish to develop business or community ideas that will benefit the Muslim community.
She believes passionately that each and every single sister can achieve the dunya and akhirah of their dreams. Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) has given all of us special unique gifts and tools in the Qu’ran and sunnah that we can use to benefit ourselves, our families and our communities. Umm Raiyaan resides in London, UK with her husband and four children whom she home educates.
