A picture taken of my lecture on ‘The Solution to Poverty – The Islamic Economic System’ at the University of East Anglia (Norwich, UK).
It was a great atmosphere, with a packed room – many attendees were economics students from the university – disappointingly they didn’t challenge any of my points on Capitalism in the Q/A! In fact, questions from the Muslims attendees were more challenging – excellent my brothers and sisters! Always question people’s assertions. Their questions gave me more opportunity to go into depth on the topics.
Apparently, last year when I presented a lecture on Sharia at UEA, I briefly discussed the economic system and fatefully said “It is a big topic, I could do a lecture on this alone” – and the UEA Isoc took me up on my words and I had to come to present a lecture on the Islamic Economic system in detail (I should be careful of what I say next time!). Anyways, I offer my thanks to the UEA ISOC’s hospitality, it was great to see them all again.
This was the second time I have presented a dedicated lecture on the topic of the Economic System of Islam at a university, I look forward to lecturing on this further in future Inshallah.
The video will be out along with the other lectures videos, over the coming months Inshallah (there are around 10 in total – and counting..) — at University of East Anglia (UEA)
