THE BREAKDOWN EP. 16 – BLACK LIVES MATTER & BLACK HISTORY IN ISLAM
Which of the Twelve Shia Imams were of African origin? Why should Muslims support the Black Lives Matter movement? What real steps can youth bodies and individuals take to remove microaggressions from mosques?
Ahmed and Aliya cohost this unmissable discussion, joined by Sheikh Nuru Mohammed, resident Imam in Birmingham, and Ibrahim Sincere, artist and social activities.
Al Haadi Hujjat Youth are running their #30K challenge for WF-AID’s Ramadan Relief appeal, which provides essential food packs to families living in poverty in over 20 countries around the world
During the Holy month of Ramadan, WF-AID aims to tackle starvation within some of the most heavily-deprived parts of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. We are working with our partners in over 20 countries, including Kenya, Iraq, Yemen, Palestine, and the United Kingdom. This year, with the onset of the Coronavirus, families who would normally go to community iftars no longer have that option.
Food prices are rising and supply has reduced, making an already difficult task to buy food for the month even harder. The food packs you fund give families a rare opportunity to receive essential nutrition, which they rely on for the strength they need to source water and shelter.
Each individual Food Pack costs just £55 and can feed a family of five for an entire month.
Al Haadi Hujjat Youth, as part of Hujjat are striving to support WF-AID in their pledge to support the campaign to which the aim is to raise £30,000.00 for Hujjat Ramadhan Relief Fund.
Our community has supported our local food bank, Sufra, for many years now. Unfortunately, the current situation means that their donations of food are dwindling and they are struggling to purchase the food and toiletries they need in the quantities required. All this whilst they are experiencing record levels of demand.
Al-Haadi Youth have organised a food drive to help – drop off points are in Stanmore, Harrow and Watford (*not* at the centre). See poster for more details.
For more information, or to have online shopping delivered directly to Sufra, please visit their website at www.sufra-nwlondon.org.uk
