Project Description

Saleha has recently joined the Multi Faith Chaplaincy team at Canary Wharf to support the broader Chaplaincy team as one of the Muslim chaplains working alongside Ibrahim. She has previously trained and worked as a Muslim Chaplain with the Bart’s Health NHS trust.

She is a Sharia graduate from Ebrahim College where she completed her seminary studies in 2017 as a mature student. She then went on to further specialise in the Prophetic traditions. She also has a BSc Hons in Computing studies.

In addition she works as a Sharia council adviser with the Muslim Women’s Advisory Council (Mwac) and The Imam, both of whom are independent organisations specialising in Islamic law.

She has also been a teacher in Quran, Tajweed and Islamic studies for over seven years and currently teaches and provides pastoral care at Q-Iman and Ebrahim College. She works with Mawarid Lifestyle as a Mentor for the youth in the YMP project.

She volunteers her time at Nour (Domestic violence) as an Islamic adviser and on the Menstrual Matters project of White thread institute (run by female scholars).

In her spare time she enjoys being a judge with the National Huffadh Association UK. This is the yearly Quran competition where children and young adults are given the opportunity to compete and share their talents in Quran recitation.

Saleha enjoys traveling with her family and experiencing new cultures and cuisine. She lives in London and is married with two sons.

“There are moments in life when we feel like we’re sitting on the edge, and all we need sometimes is a smile, a kind word or simply to know that someone cares. As chaplains we let others know that we care. We care regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or any other differences and that’s why we’re here to listen to you. If I can make a difference to someone, however small it maybe then my job is worthwhile.”
