Atique Miah was born in Bangladesh and came to England at the age of two, with his mother and younger brother. He married in 2003, and is from the Barton and Tredworth area of Gloucester.
Through some fortunate events he became Muslim Chaplain at the University of Gloucestershire from April 2016, and this opened the doors to other opportunities in the NHS and in the private sector.
He often gets invited to deliver presentations and talks to community groups and educational establishments.
Atique is no scholar of religion but has a deep passion for learning about his own and about other faiths. He plays badminton to keep his body active; and writes poetry to keep his mind active.
With various projects on the go, he is working towards producing a poetry series aimed at children and young people- to get everyone interested in the stories found in the Holy Qur’an. Atique’s biggest strength is his open and welcoming personality. Religion became a bigger part of his life after he was made redundant from his role at the Trading Standards Service. He credits his faith in giving him hope through the tough times in life. The vision of his poetry project is to complete writing the Stories of the prophets, using rhyming couplets; then the great women in Islam; then the four Khulafa E Rashideen. In this manner Atique, hopes to bring Islamic history to life through poetry and education.
