We are pleased to inform you that the Ladies Committee will be holding Qur’an Khani classes for girls and boys in the month of Ramadhan IA. To facilitate targeted teaching and help the children learn in a conducive environment, we will divide the girls into 3 age groups and the boys into 2 age group as follows:

               GIRLS                                   BOYS

In addition to learning how to recite the Holy Qur’an, the children will be taught about the various foods mentioned in the Qur’an and their health benefits. They will be looking at different verses of the Qur’an that relate to the interconnectedness of physical and spiritual health.

Towards the end of the Holy month a competition will be held and trophies presented to the winners and runners-up of each group. We will also have a fun Qur’an Khani fun day where the girls will apply henna and the boys will have some arts and craft activity.

This is a golden opportunity for our children to learn the Qur’an (both recitation and educational lessons) and we encourage you to enrol them for the classes. The children will need to register, so please contact either Yasmin Meghjee on 07773025361 or Sajidah Hameer on 07415235816.

To My Dear Ladies,

Salamun Alaykum

All praise is due to Allah swt who has given me the opportunity once again to stand before you asking to serve my beloved community.

I have been pleasantly surprised by the passion & enthusiasm I have seen in the community following the presidential elections & I hope that the ladies will reciprocate and participate with the same vigour.

I strongly desire a transparent, efficient and effectively run committee that encompasses the vision of all our members. It is my heartfelt desire to ensure that even the voices of the young women who will be leaders tomorrow are heard.

Keeping all this in mind, I have revisited my manifesto from 2014-2016 and indicated on each objective, how far I have come along and what I have achieved in the space of 2 years.

I would much rather promise a few things, put my heart and soul into getting it right than make pledges that I cannot keep.

I read something some time ago & would like to share it with you: “ Characterise people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.”

I am honoured to present to you my manifesto for the next term.

 Manifesto 2014-2016

 Manifesto 2016-2018 

I hope for your support in the delivery of my manifesto as it was created with you in mind.

For anyone who would like to get in touch or have any questions, please feel free to get in touch either via telephone or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
