Message from CoEJ President Alhaj Dr Husein JiwaIn: COEJ News
Living in a multicultural society, we as Muslims, have been striving to promote our interfaith dialogue which will help towards building a civilised world, bringing people closer in order to work for establishing peace and justice and enhancing the welfare of the whole community.
Fasting inculcates this sense of brotherhood and solidarity, as we feel and experience what our needy and hungry brother feels. This gives us a new sense of togetherness and association.
This year during August Bank Holiday, Eid celebrations will be followed by further celebrations of the 10th Anniversary of our highly popular Mulla Asghar Memorial tournament (MAMT), our flagship event. I invite you all to come and join in these celebrations where your presence will be highly appreciated.
On the theme of sports, we see that this year, the Olympics will be taking place during Mahe Ramadhan where about 3000 Muslim sportsmen and women will be participating. This gives us, as members of the British society, an added opportunity to re-enact the brotherhood of humanity and it will truly be a global event that will go a long way to build bridges with the nations of the world.
In conclusion, on behalf of The Council Of European Jamaats, I wish you Ramadhan Mubarak and pray that the Almighty accepts all our ibadaat during this Month of blessings and gives us increased Tawfeqaat to serve Him with sincerity of intent.
With Salaams & Dua’s
Dr Husein Jiwa
President – The Council of European Jamaats
