Lauren Booth at Tawhid Mosque

Bismillah. I was honoured to chair her talk, “My Journey to Islam” at the mosque today. Although one might disagree with some of her political stances, her stories of people from the West Bank & Gaza were incredibly moving. And her description of her epiphany at a mosque in Iran was the most beautiful and inspiring one that I’ve ever heard.

    Which political stances are those?

    It is indeed a very beautiful story, but one thing about it makes me uneasy which is that her epiphany took place at a shrine, did it not? However, is it not the case that the existence of such shrines are not considered permissible in Islam in the first place?
