Contact details

I am interested in the promotion of religious harmony by educating young people and the wider public in different religious beliefs and cultures to deepen their understanding of  distinctive features and common ground in order to promote good relations between persons of different faiths and to challenge extremism in all its manifestations.


Imam Monawar read Theology at the University of Oxford, majoring in Islam and the West. He trained as an Imam under the tutelage of the late Sheikh Dr Zaki Badawi KBE at the Muslim College, Ealing, United Kingdom. He also holds a Master of Arts degree in Abrahamic Religions awarded by the University of London.


His research interests include Islam and the West, Interfaith dialogue, Islamic reform movements, Sufism and English literature.
