Islamically speaking, in order to bring about positive change to society, one must first start with themselves, their family, and then their wider community. The purpose of this workshop is to self-reflect and explore what it is you admire about your role models, what characteristics do they have, and what will enable you to reach that status.
Let’s split into groups, and reflect on what we’ve just learned.
Dedicate a facilitator to lead the whiteboard discussion and present findings to the rest of the team.
