Join Dr Abdul-Azim Ahmed of Cardiff University as he reflects on the mosques and Muslim institutions of Cardiff, and what they tells us about Islam, the history of the city, and the story of Wales.
Dr Abdul-Azim Ahmed is a Research Associate in British Muslim Studies at Cardiff University’s School of History, Archaeology and Religion and is Deputy Director at the Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK. He has a BA in Religious Studies, an MA in Islam in Contemporary Britain, and completed his doctorate, an ethnographic study of a British mosque, in 2016. Since then, he has continued his research in British Muslim congregational studies, and has a longstanding interest in the history and settlement of Muslims in Wales. He has been involved in policy, research, and project management in the third-sector, has a passion for the public communication of “religion”, and is founder and editor of On Religion, a magazine that explores faith and society. Dr Ahmed is currently working on a volume exploring the story of Britain’s nearly 2000 mosques.
