At Nour, we are currently able to provide you with free access to Qualified counsellors who can provide counselling to help heal from the trauma of abuse, Qualified Legal Advisors to advise on any legal queries, Support workers who can provide emotional support and practical support to help access services, financial assistance through various hardship funds, including Nour’s Safe Haven Zakat Fund. We have qualified advisors who can help with any Islamic advice in relation to the abuse you have suffered, including spiritual abuse, rights in marriage, queries around divorce, etc. We recognise that often the misinformed ‘Islamic’ advice received by survivors can perpetuate the abuse and collude with abusers, and thus we provide a service where qualified advisors can refute such approaches and challenge the structures and narratives that condone abuse in our communities.
