Over three days and two nights in winter, the Muslim Institute retreats to the auspicious surroundings of Sarum College situated in the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral, joined by a distinguished international panel of speakers for a programme of events. Fellows gather to debate and discuss the essential and pressing issues of our times, focusing on an annual theme, in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.
When so many voices are seeking to define new direction for Islam and Muslims, especially those living in the West, this Gathering offers an opportunity for searching consideration of topics that concern and inspire. In this welcoming and inclusive spirit, the Muslim Institute offers stimulating intellectual inquiry with time to meet old friends and make new ones.
Attendance, including accommodation and all meals, is free for Fellows, who are warmly encouraged to join in and help to revive the classical tradition of Muslim learned societies.
