Ramadan Yemen Appeal 2020

Ramadan Yemen Appeal 2020 – DONATE NOW

Slough Islamic Trust have teamed up with Asian Star Radio to help raise awareness and money for Yemen. Over 5 million children are malnourished in Yemen. Half a million of them are suffering from extreme hunger. On average, one child under the age of 5 dies of preventable causes every 10 minutes.

Asian Star and Slough Islamic Trust are working alongside Good deed Charity organisation who are registered locally in Yemen so that your money can reach the people directly who need it. Each food parcel costs just £30 a month for one family, it consists of 10kg of rice, 25kg flour, 5kg sugar, 25 tins of beans and 5ltrs oil.

People are suffering from Cholera due to lack of clean water. Providing one family water per week costs £20, if we provide a whole neighbourhood for a month this would cost £200.

Orphan sponsorship, £20 per month for one child or £240 per year, this will provide food, clothes and education.

Currently we are providing daily iftar for more than 300 families.

Prophet Muhammad PBUH said; “Whoever provides the food for a fasting person to break his fast with, then for him is the same reward as his (the fasting person’s), without anything being diminished from the reward of the fasting person.”(Narrated by Tirmidhi)

Eton College Visit to Slough Mosque

We were pleased to welcome students from Eton College to Diamond Road mosque, Slough.  The 25 students are studying at GCSE level with 25% of their course based on Islam.  An excellent opportunity to learn about Islam and the origins of the local mosques we have in Slough.

They were greeted by the Chairman Mr Afzal and the trustees of the mosque and given a brief history and tour of the mosque itself along with the Slough community hall.

We are happy to welcome ALL to our mosques regardless of faith.

 

Child fostering Slough

A humble request to all Muslims

The UK government have agreed to take Syrian muslim orphans in the next 5-10 years, 6000 non-muslims have registered to take these children but only a few muslims have registered.

The process can take up to 6 months. The UK government will fund ALL costs. Whoever has the time, room or have no children or might know anyone who would be interested are desperately urged to register.

” with regard to the virtue of sponsoring orphans and the great reward for that, Muslim (2983) narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “The one who sponsors an orphan, whether it is a relative of his or not, he and I will be like these two in Paradise,” and Maalik pointed with his forefinger and middle finger.

Rohingya refugees donation

Slough Islamic Trust helped raise hundreds of thousands of pounds with support from the local community intending to deliver the aid to the refugees personally.   Our chairman, Mr Afzal has been working at the mosque for the last 50 years, and has involved himself in charity projects for much of that time.

The recent fundraiser is a sign of how Slough as a community can come together in times of need.

“I have been doing charity jobs since 1964. When you work honestly, people have faith their money is not being wasted.” Mr Afzal
