Religious OCD in the Muslim Community

Zoom Webinar

This is a 2-part webinar series on Religious OCD within Muslim Communities. This series takes place for 4 hours across 2 days.

About this event

“Leave that which makes you doubt for that which does not make you doubt, for truth leads to reassurance and lies lead to uncertainty.” [Tirmidhi]

Religious OCD, also known as Scrupulosity, is a subtype of OCD. However, just as OCD in general is massively misunderstood in our communities, Religious OCD has even less recognition and understanding.

The lines become blurred as Religious OCD is often misinterpreted for Waswasa (whispers of Shaytan) and thus perceived as nothing more than spiritual weakness. However, Religious OCD can be debilitating and without the right support and conversations, it could lead to harrowing experiences and distressing ways of living.

It is our social responsibility to ensure we speak and act with knowledge, can advocate for those struggling with Religious OCD and support ourselves and others when needed. By attending this webinar, you will be contributing towards the mission of improving the safety, mental health and wellbeing of the Ummah, In Shaa Allah!

You will also receive a certificate of attendance.

Dates and Times:

  • Part 1: Saturday, 12th November 2022, 11am-1pm
  • Part 2: Sunday, 13th November 2022, 11am-1pm

By attending Part 1 and Part 2 of this webinar, you will learn about:

  1. The nature of Religious OCD including the obsessive compulsive nature behind intrusive thoughts.
  2. The different types of Waswasaa, and the distinct differences to Religious OCD.
  3. To identify how Religious OCD can often be misunderstood or justified as piety.
  4. How to reduce the stigma associated to experiencing Religious OCD and breaking the cycle of compulsive behaviours and thoughts.
  5. How to cope with unwanted thoughts, the different types of support available, how to help yourself and others around you.

We anticipate this webinar to be highly interactive through the use of regular group discussions and case studies.
