Domestic Abuse Khutbah

Listen to our khutbah focused on how women should be treated in Islam.

The clear message:

Fear Allah Regarding Your Wives

Imam Mustafa gives a clear message that physical or emotional abuse towards women is not from Islam and is strictly against the Sunnah. Men should strive to be more like The Prophet peace and blessings be upon him in how he treated women.

We believe masjids should be doing more to support vulnerable women and that is why we are committed to running this service.

Our staff who work with vulnerable women will also be receiving training from the professional support worker so that we are better equipped to help InshaAllah.


The Prophet Muhammed(ﷺ)said:
“The Best Of You Are Those Who Are Best To Their Women.”
