LADIES OF LIGHT is a monthly event put together by The Rabbani project.

Every Month The Rabbani Project seeks to work with other community organisations to bring together Ladies from all walks of life and backgrounds to provide a comfortable space for women to be entertained, inspired and elevated by Ladies of light be it past, present or future.

Every event is a unique mixture of showcasing the latest female talent be it poets, singers, musicians, artists, providing a space where one can express themselves and share with other fellow sisters in addition to also being able to sit amongst those Ladies, teachers, Shaykhas who can share, inspire, educate us about the real Ladies of Light; the female companions of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the female Shaykhas, the female scholars, the female saints, the mothers, the daughters. These are not stories of the past that we read in books, these are lights which we must take into our lives to emanate and shine through to our next generation.

So we welcome you to Ladies of Light, be part of the journey of expression, education and elevation through the Women that Islam has inspired.
