About The Event

About Tharik Hussain

Tharik Hussain is an author, travel writer and journalist, who specialises in Muslim heritage and culture. His last book Minarets in the Mountains was longlisted for the UK’s biggest non-fiction prize and shortlisted for the biggest travel writing award. It won the British Guild of Travel Writers’ Best Travel Book Award and was named a Book of the Year by, amongst others, The Times Literary Supplement and the New Statesman. It has now been translated into German and Chinese.

Tharik is also a Lonely Planet author who has written guides to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Thailand, London and Britain, and has been published by the likes of the BBC, The Guardian and National Geographic Traveller.

In 2019, he developed Britain’s first Muslim heritage trails in Woking, Surrey, and has produced award-winning radio for the BBC on America’s mosques. He is a fellow at the Royal Geographical Society and the Centre for Religion and Heritage at the University of Groningen, Netherlands.

Tharik’s latest book Ramadan Mubarak: A Little Inspiration for the Blessed Month is filled with inspiring verses from the Qur’an, hadith and quotes by fascinating Muslim figures from the past and present. The book aims to uplift and inspire readers for a peaceful and purposeful Ramadan.

As well as offering practical tips and advice on staying positive throughout the sacred month, Tharik has scoured Muslim sources to include the words of those often overlooked by popular Islamic literature, such as ancient female scholars; historic British converts, and African and South Asian mystics. Their words are found alongside contemporary and popular names like Mufti Menk and Yasmin Mogahed.

The result is a book that will be a source of strength, offering spiritual support and guidance as readers venture on a journey of reflection and purification during the blessed month.

Both Ramadan Mubarak (£7.99) and Minarets in the Mountains (£9.99) will be available for sale at the event with Tharik donating all his royalties from the sales on the night to Save the Children’s Emergency Gaza Appeal.
