The Effects of Domestic Abuse on Muslim Mental Health

Osmani Centre, 58 Underwood Road, London E1 5AW

Saturday, 2:30PM to 6:30PM
March 11, 2023


This is a 1-part workshop on Domestic Abuse in Muslim Communities, taking place for 4 hours in-person at the Osmani Centre, UK.

About this event:

“The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just, and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practise regular charity, and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them will Allah pour His mercy: for Allah is Exalted in power, Wise.” [Qur’an 9:71]

Domestic Abuse is far beyond the physical and includes multiple different ways a perpetrator can abuse their victim. Perpetrators and victims alike can sometimes be the last person you would think of because of learned behaviours. Any type of abuse will have a significant impact on mental health and wellbeing whether you are the victim or its someone you know. This impact is intensified when being a victim is stigmatised and stifled, and the only solution provided is “be patient”, particularly within the Muslim community.

There are unfortunately many cases where men and women suffer alone and in silence, and are often not given the adequate support or any at all.

It is therefore our collective and social responsibility to ensure we can protect ourselves from domestic abuse, and identify those who may need this protection. 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.

Date and Time:

  • Saturday, 11th March, 2.30-6.30pm
  • Main Hall, Third Floor, Osmani Centre

By attending this workshop, you will learn:

  1. The different types of abuse that may occur in marital/intimate relationships, and the impact this has on the mental health of victims.
  2. How to potentially identify perpetrators of abuse and violence, and how they may use coercive control.
  3. The Islamic rights of a husband and wife, what a safe relationship looks like and the Islamic response to abuse.
  4. The stigma that victims may face and how to help them, i.e. via the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme, and how to offer support to others, including those with young children.
  5. Practical and spiritual advice on how to better mental health and wellbeing, and where to obtain additional support or information.


Due to the sensitive nature of the topic and the discussion of potentially triggering topics, we recommend individuals to only attend if they feel safe and well enough.
