Trends: Culture, Identity & Fashion by Saad Tasleem on 8-10 March 2019 in Kuala Lumpur

The Topic

Everyday is a new controversy, but the underlying questions are the same.

  • What are Islamic guidelines on hair and dress?
  • Is there such a thing as “Muslim culture”?
  • What does “imitating non-Muslims” really mean?
  • Does being “trendy” contradict with Islamic concept of modesty?
  • Am I a bad Muslim for being into fashion?

Who are you comfortable being? What does the sunnah say about identity and possibly having more than one?

Explore the fluidity of Islam and its vast opportunities, whoever you may be.
