Following the Executive Committee meeting held on 17th January, it was decided to reduce the Burial Fund payment to £30.00 per person(over 18) for the current year 2012.

Children under 18 will automatically be included in the scheme if either or both of the parents are members but, will then have to apply to become members of the jamaat as well as the Burial scheme once they reach the age of 18.

You can now also pay online by clicking here and selecting Burial Scheme under Subscriptions.

The deadline for paying into the fund has also been extended to the end of February this year.

For those who have already paid into the fund, the Treasury team will be getting in touch with you after making the necessary adjustments to your dues.

Please see below Safety guidance for Shia Communities in the UK.

  • Travelling to Iraq (Ziyaraat)
  • Local Commemoration
  • Safeguarding

Various Shia Muslim community organisations have come together this year to develop guidance for our local communities, to ensure that the British Shia Muslim community is able to commemorate the events of Karbala in a safe and secure manner. With the current political climate of Islamophobia and Shiaphobia, coupled with the threat of Daesh, it is essential that we remain attuned to the sensitivities of our local areas.

Having met and briefed representatives from the National Counter Terrorism and Policing Centre, as well as the Borders Agencies, we have produced the following guidelines for our communities. This also includes updates in relation to developments that have occurred this Muharram. Please do share with other centres and your respective membership.

1.Travelling to Iraq (Ziyaraat)


  • Build in extra time when travelling
  • Please be patient and be ready to answer questions if needed.
  • See guidance on children travelling and carrying large amounts of money.

There is currently increased security monitoring those who are travelling to Syria and Iraq (including those travelling via Turkey) to ensure supporters are not going to join the Daesh forces, and similarly others are not going to join the various militias. We are working alongside the National Counter Terrorism and Policing Centre, as well as the Borders Agencies to try and ensure smooth journeys to and from Iraq this year for Ziyaarat.

Please ensure you read the FCO Travel Advice (which is regularly updated) before travelling.https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/iraq
