On Tuesday 6 February 2018, Imam Habibur Rahman delivered a talk on the virtues of the Ahlul Bayt from the Sunni perspective at the University of Edinburgh, organised by the Islamic Society of Edinburgh University. While the Imam spoke, he took this opportunity to practise intra-faith by reaching out to the Shi’a community in particular as there were many of them present. He sought to explain and remove certain misconceptions that the Shi’a may have of their Sunni counterparts and develop an understanding between them.
The Imam received positive feedback with the President of the Islamic Society saying that the Imam presented it better than some of the academics holding a PhD. More importantly, the Shi’as who were present at the talk enjoyed it and spoke very highly of the Imam..
