Dear Community Members,

Salaamun Alaykum

The Executive Committee in conjunction with CoEJ are planning to launch Khoja TV in Birmingham.

Khoja TV transmits Gujrati and Urdu Majalis, Nauhas, Marsiyya and Qasidas twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. There is a one-off cost for the equipment of £50 but we are trying to get sponsors to reduce the cost. Internet connection is a requirement for the transmission. Those who do not have an internet connection will be able to get assistance from volunteers to source the best deal.

The EC is looking for volunteers to assist in this project. If you are interested, please give your names to Taufiq Jivraj or Sajida Sajan.

Those interested to sponsor towards the cost of the equipment should contact Gulamraza Datoo.

For those interested to install Khoja TV at their homes should register at the Treasury desk in both Ladies and Gents. First preference will be given to those who are Elderly or Housebound.

Thank you


Salam Alaikum,

This Thursday, 2nd of June 2016, there will be a presentation of the OpenFajr project by Dr. Shahid Merali and Br. Jaffer Dharamsi.

The programme will start at 8 pm with Surah Yasin, Du'a Kumayl and two presentations followed by Question & Answer, Namaaz and Ziyarat Waritha.

Ramadan Relief 1437:  Celebrating 40 years of serving humanity, The World Federation launches Ramadan Relief Fund 2016

2016 marks the 40th anniversary of The World Federation’s service to our global community, and the annual Ramadan Relief Fund continues to be our leading initiative in addressing poverty and hunger during the Holy month of Ramadan. In the Ramadan Du’as which we recite nightly, we ask our Lord:

“O Allah, on this day, let me have mercy on the orphans, and feed (the hungry), and spread peace, and keep company with the noble-minded, O the Shelter of the hopeful.”

This year, The World Federation has identified over 73,000 orphans, children, seniors, widows, families and the physically challenged who need our help during the month of Ramadan. These families live in different countries including Afghanistan, Bosnia, Gaza, India, Iraq, Kenya, Madagascar, Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa, Syria, Tanzania, and Uganda. Living in poverty and struggling with adversities is difficult enough. Families depend on the Ramadhan Relief Fund so that they too can fast and pray in peace without having to worry about where their next meal is coming from. Nothing is more difficult than facing these men, women, and children with nothing to give.

This year, with your help and donations, we hope to provide various forms of aid such as food baskets, iftar, sehri, debt relief, medical assistance and other essential items and services to beneficiary families who are counting on our help. 

• For as little as £40 GBP you can feed a family of four for one month.
