Salaamun Alaikum,

Jum'a Mubarak!

I pray this email finds you in good health.

Alhamdulillah, with the grace of the Almighty, and your support and prayers, I have been given the opportunity to serve you for the next two years. It is an honour for me to serve our community and I aspire to take our community to new heights.

This year's elections have been empowering, engaging and inspirational. I have learnt a lot through our consultations, discussions, feedback and questions. The atmosphere of the elections was fantastic with lots of passionate people feeling strongly about the future of our community.

Yesterday, for the first time we also had hustings for the Chairlady elections with four candidates nominated for the position. I wish the best of luck to all candidates! It is encouraging to see such energy and passion from our community; I pray that we can direct this energy after the elections into working together to enhance our growing community!

The work now begins on my pledges and the 100-day plan. Over the coming weeks, I shall be discussing these with my Executive Committee and members of the Sub-Committees. If you feel you can help in any way or have any additional ideas or suggestions, please speak to myself or a member of the EC, or you can email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I would like to thank you all for your support, with special thanks to #TeamKSM for running a strong campaign. I look forward to working together, consolidating ideas and uniting to take our community forward.

Tawfiqali Jivraj receiving the Defibrillator on behalf of the KSIMC Birmingham

A vital piece of life-saving equipment will be available at Mehfil-e-abbas, KSIMC of Birmingham, for members to use in the event of someone suffering a cardiac arrest.

On Thursday 17th March 2016, the KSIMC of Birmingham took delivery of its defibrillator and some of the first-aiders were trained in its use with a further more trained at a later date.

The KSIMC of Birmingham were visited by West Midlands Ambulance Service who trained the first aiders on using the machine which could restart the heart of someone who suffers a cardiac arrest.

A defibrillator is a device that can be used to restart ones' heart if they’ve suffered a cardiac arrest. These machines are extremely easy to use, meaning people of all ages and walks of life can provide emergency care to those who need it, quickly and effectively prior to the arrival of an ambulance.

Eighty-five percent of those people who suffer cardiac arrests have the ability to be corrected by defibrillation. The quicker someone is defibrillated, not only improves the chance of their survival but it can also help to improve the chances of a patient’s full recovery and reduce the time to do so. For every minute a patient is in cardiac arrest, their chance of survival decreases by 10 percent.


There will be a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse on Friday 16th September .
