Faced every day with a barrage of shocking statistics about injustice, intolerance and global problems, we launched the Husayn Summit as a platform for change-makers to share their bold ideas. Many of them have established structures and organisations to identify and attack problems head on, and all embrace support from the wider community.
Our key inspiration comes from Husayn Ibne Ali (Peace Be Upon Him), a saint revered worldwide for restoring social justice and truth. He reshaped society in the 7th century through his heroic actions as he fought for the rights of the greater humanity while battling a politically unjust system that brought widespread tyranny to the Middle East – across modern-day Iraq, Arabia and Syria.
By introducing Husayn through a social and academic lens, we are following his example to combat today’s injustices.
