Raised in Manchester, Abrar Agil holds an LLB (Law) degree and (LLM) Masters in Healthcare Ethics and Law from the University of Manchester.
During her studies, she became interested in Islamic bioethics as she was curious to understand how Islamic principles were interpreted into contemporary issues. Since carrying out research in the field of organ donation, she went on to campaign for more Muslims to join the organ donor register.
Abrar has also been involved in voluntary work with organisations. This includes being on the Members’ Relations committee on FOSIS, organising conferences and fresher pack distribution. She was involved in the early phase of establishing a MAB Youth group in Manchester as well as with teh Ramadan Tent Project, fostering interfaith dialogue and cohesion in the local community.
She was also involved in a local mosque group which aims to involve the wider Muslim community in its activities, creating a sense of unity and cooperation.
