We provide Islamic support and advice through our Islamic advisors (male and female) who are from a range of different Islamic schools of thought. We also have a dedicated team of professional and legal advisors who are able to offer psychological support and appropriate counselling to victims of domestic violence.
If you or somebody you know is suffering from domestic violence then there is help available. At Nour, we are currently able to provide you with access to Islamic Advisors, Legal Advisors and also have a team of Professional Advisors who can offer health related advice including counselling and psychological support.
Nour is a charity which aims to engage the public, and especially the minority muslim communities, to become aware and take action against this silent yet prevalent social injustice – domestic violence. We believe it is important to be pro-active rather than reactive. At Nour we also have a strong Islamic ethos and seek to condemn domestic violence using Islamic literature from both the Quran and the prophetic teachings. This is important in communities where there is a general but widespread misconception that Islam advocates domestic violence. We are currently able to offer access to Islamic advisors, professional advisors and legal advisors.
