Nour is a charity which aims to engage the public, and especially the minority muslim communities, to become aware and take action against this silent yet prevalent social injustice – domestic violence. We believe it is important to be pro-active rather than reactive. At Nour we also have a strong Islamic ethos and seek to condemn domestic violence using Islamic literature from both the Quran and the prophetic teachings. This is important in communities where there is a general but widespread misconception that Islam advocates domestic violence. We are currently able to offer access to Islamic advisors, professional advisors and legal advisors.
