In view of the fact that R.E is now an exam subject for GCSE, we now give a number of talks on the three Abrahamic religions, their beliefs, similarities, differences, cultures, and how these can affect political decisions and actions.

Given by two knowledgeable, articulate and lively speakers, one Muslim the other Christian or Jewish, the talks can be provided in accordance with the requests from individual schools and are accompanied by colourful PowerPoint presentations containing many maps and photos, films, and animation. Discussion and questions by the students are encouraged. Every session involves the students, with discussions, time for questions, etc.

Sami Hussein, our Muslim speaker, has vast knowledge of current events in the Middle East, and his determination to constantly learn and share the truth, ensures that his talks are up-to-date and offer surprising insights.

He has a deep understanding of Islam and is able to read the Quran in its original because of his knowledge of Arabic. He has a deep understanding of the religion, the difference between Shi'a and Sunni, and the effects of these differences on events in the Middle East.

All the talks are balanced, prepared in consultation with teachers and with experts from both sides, and give a balanced yet factual look at the issues involved.

The talks can be aimed at any age from Primary to years 12 and 13, and for students with any degree of knowledge, from very knowledgeable to little or none; for PHSE students to those studying for GCSE. Length can be determined by each school or institution, although we suggest allowing as much time as possible for these complex subjects. For example:

Religion, philosophy and ethics

  1. Religious aspects of the conflicts
  2. Islam, Christianity, Judaism. How their differences affect political goals and actions
  3. Islam, Judaism. How their differences affect political goals and actions
  4. Christianity, Judaism. How their differences and similarities have affected their relations
  5. Philosophy and ethics. How differences in beliefs have influenced behaviour towards others in peace and war
  6. Sunni Islam, Shia Islam. What are the differences and similarities? How do these affect their goals and actions?

Updates and details will be enlarged in the talks according to teachers' requests.
