Halima Gosai Hussain


Halima Gosai Hussain comes from a diverse religious background; her mother and father have roots in the Hindi tradition and Islam, respectively. She has a degree in Philosophy & Theology from King’s College London and an MA in Middle Eastern Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), where her research focused on alternative interpretative methodologies of the Qur'an. She is a founding member of the Inclusive Mosque Initiative (IMI), which provides spaces for worship, open to all, regardless of gender, age, sexuality, disability, sect, etc. which she feels is like being in "Islamic utopia".
