The inspiration of the name Whitethread Institute is taken from verse 2:187 of the Glorious Qur’an.
“And eat and drink until the white thread of dawn becomes distinct to you from the black thread (of night).”
It expresses hope for a new dawn with better days to come and longing for much needed illumination in our daily lives and in our world through our scholars.
