A tool for bringing people together to decide on a course of action to take

SHURA means CONSULTATION
It is a way for us to conduct our affairs through consultation with others.

We use shura to solve problems in matters of importance to us.
It is undertaken with regard to permissible actions.

"How might we better use our schools and community centers to encourage connecting and cooperation among ourselves?"

"How might we design new programs that address the tensions in our neighborhoods?"

"How might we establish a community trust fund that enables us to offset the costs of training and higher education?"
