Sister's Tarbiyah Department

The Sisters Tarbiyah Department was formed 10 years ago in order to provide Islamic knowledge for sisters in Birmingham.

Starting out with a solitary weekly sisters’ study circle, the department has grown and by Allah’s permission, delivered many structured courses and workshops as well as sisters and children’s tarbiyah days. In addition, The Sisters Tarbiyah department delivered Glmcc’s first-ever sisters conference, Keys to Jannah in 2014 and recently our most successful sisters conference Healing Hearts in August 2022, with many other sisters conferences and seminars in between alhamdulillah.

The main aim of the sister’s Tarbiyah department is to help nurture our congregation and help them connect with our lord and our beautiful religion as conveyed to us by our beloved Prophet peace be upon him, upon the understanding of his companions May Allah be pleased with them and the righteous predecessors.

Our mission is to ensure that the pursuit/acquirement of authentic Islamic knowledge is easy and accessible by all sisters regardless of their background or level. Countless thousands of sisters have attended our classes and events and taken away something that they can benefit both themselves and others with, in shaa Allah.
