Sponsors have announced that Yasmin Mogahed will be going on a four-city tour of the UK where she will be speaking on “Love and Marriage.” According to the announcement:
Penny Appeal have teamed up with Al Buruj Press in a highly anticipated and truly enlightening series of talks – featuring the world-renowned Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed. The special four-city tour will be focussed around Love and Marriage, and is the first time this course will be taught in the UK. Yasmin, from the USA, is known for captivating audiences with her insights and thought provoking reflections on life. She is a graduate of Psychology and, as a highly-skilled creative writer, her books have been well received. She also has a special gift of relating everyday life to the relationship we hold with Allah (swt). A truly inspirational speaker and one we are proud to host in the UK.
One of the course teachers featured at tour sponsor Al Buruj Press is Shaykh Yusuf Abu Sneina, the long-time Palestinian Authority appointed preacher of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Shortly after the 911 attacks, Shaykh Abu Sneina was filmed calling Britain “the apex of terror and the apex of hatred against Islam and Muslims”:
The Infidel countries under the leadership of the US made up an excuse and justification to wage their dirty war against Islam, the Muslims and the Islamic movements worldwide after the [9/11] attack. Criminal Britain, who was directly responsible for the creation of this corrupt entity (Israel) on Palestinian land is demanding that the Palestinians eliminate the Islamic groups. Britain has forgotten that it is the apex of terror and the apex of hatred against Islam and Muslims.
Yasmin Mogahed is the daughter of Elsayed Mogahed, an Egyptian immigrant who is a former engineering scientist at the University of Wisconsin and director of the Islamic Center of Madison (ICM). The website of the ICM linked mainly to US Muslim Brotherhood organizations and Souheil Ghannouchi, once the head of the Muslim American Society (MAS), close to the Egyptian Brotherhood, was a former ICM Imam and President and was also an engineering graduate student at the University of Wisconsin. Yasmin Mogahed is also the sister of Dahlia Mogahed, formerly a Faith Advisor to US President Obama and close to Saudi-funded Georgetown Professor John Esposito, himself a long-time supporter of the Global Muslim Brotherhood. Yasmin Mogahed is a regular speaker on the Global Muslim Brotherhood speaking circuit.
