Re: Statement from the KSIMC of Birmingham

We are appalled and saddened by the scenes that unfolded on Seven Sisters Road by the Finsbury Park mosque in London in the early hours of the morning.

As with the attacks in London and Manchester, we stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters affected by the attack and their families.

Yesterday, many of the victims were returning home from prayers and to their families. In a month where muslims pray for love, peace and coexistence, and just a few hours after our communities got together in honour of an MP who devoted her life to bringing people together, this news is particularly painful.

It serves as a further reminder that terror is indiscriminate and will always work to divide us. Our strength lies in love and unity within our communities, and efforts to undermine this simply strengthen our resolve to grow in our love and unity.

As always, we are thankful to our emergency services who were quick to respond to the scene and handled the incident with bravery.

With Salaams and Du'as

Gulam Raza Datoo

The Jamaat has opened an Emergency Relief Fund for the Victims of the Grenfell Tower in London. As you know, many people have been left severely injured and homeless with a number of residence having to come to terms with the death of family and friends.

Mu’mineen are urged to donate generously into this fund. Donations can be made here or at the Treasurers Desks in both ladies and gents.

Imam Sadiq ('as) has said:

The Holy Prophet (saw), initially observed the I'tikaaf (spiritual retreat) during the first ten days of the month of Ramadan. Later, he observed it during the middle ten days of the holy month and finally, he observed it during the last 10 days of the month and then continued to do so in the last ten days (for as long as he was alive).

Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 16, pg. 274 

This year’s I'tikaaf will be held from Thu 22nd June ( starting fajr) ending Sat 24th Maghrib.

For those between the ages of 16-18, in order to take part, they will have to be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Please note that registration is required if you would like to participate.
