Type the words ‘money is…’ into a Google search bar, and it will automatically respond with ‘…the root of all evil.’ Timothy Winter and Tarek El Diwany however, will provide a refreshing perspective on money and the current financial system. The economic crises of the 21st century have led to a lot of people questioning our current system. The speakers will be discussing such issues, and shed some light on what Islam says about this topic.

Timothy Winter has been named Britain’s most influential Muslim by the Independent. He is currently the Shaykh Zayed Lecturer of Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Divinity at Cambridge University and Director of Studies in Theology at Wolfson College. He has published and contributed to numerous academic works on Islam and is a leading figure in inter-faith activity. He is well-known as a contributor to BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’.

Tarek El Diwany is a writer and consultant in Islamic banking and finance. Between 1996 and 1998 he headed the Islamic Finance department at Prebon Yamane in London, having previously established an OTC bond derivatives dealing operation for the same company.

This talk is open to all and refreshments will be provided.
