#VisitMyMosque Day took place on 18 February 2018 at the Muslim Youth Foundation in the Heart of Manchester in the Northern Quarter joining over 200 mosques who opened their doors to their neighbours & wider community under the theme Open Doors, Open Mosques, Open Communities!
This is the 2nd year that the MYF have hosted the event on a Sunday. The event faced a number of challenges including the Manchester weather and Chinese New Year which unfortunately had an impact on the volume of attendee’s. However, on a positive note, those that attended were very grateful of the invitation and gained a lot of positive awareness & knowledge of Islam from the visit which including: a Tour of the Mosque, Exhibition stand & stalls; and a free Gift Bag.
The success of the event is due to Allah (SWT)The Lord of the heavens and the earth. All Praise and Thanks is due to Him the most high for sending ‘Jewels’ in the form of 30+ volunteers. We are blessed to have such a fantastic group of volunteers who invested their free time to promote & support our event. Without our team of volunteers, we couldn’t do what we do! So again from The Team at The Myf, we thank you all for the help & support!
We ask Allah (SWT) to reward you all in this world and next & answer all you dua’s Ameen.
We were delighted with the turn out for the new Tafseer of Quran class lastnight with Sheikh Abu Sundus. It is a successful course that has be reintroduced due to popular demand!
Many people turned up and there’s still places available, so why not improve your understanding of the Holy Quran. It’s beneficial for everybody no matter what level of understanding you currently have.
Highly recommended for reverts and people who wish to acquire more knowledge that will enlighten there ability to comprehend the blessed words of the Holy Quran.
The course is every Tuesday from 7:00pm till 9:00pm.
We would like to thank all the many volunteers & staff that took part in yesterday’s Open Day event. The MYF always endeavours to build bridges with the community! We are so grateful for the support and help we receive to make this possible.
Yesterday’s event thank God was very beneficial in bringing people together and hopefully dispersing many misconceptions people may have from the media.
It was wonderful to see so many new faces and the atmosphere was heart warming and a true blessing. It is our duty to bring people together from all walks of life and to live in peace and support one another.
Again thank you to all of our volunteers for making this happen! Most of all we praise & thank the most high the Lord of all things!
Pics & a review will be posted up in the coming days.
The Myf opened its doors once again to the general pubic over the weekend. What a blessed occasion it turned out to be. The sun was out and we had several stalls and talks for the general public to see and take part in. Our volunteers really did a fantastic job of making everyone feel welcome and we would like to thank all of our volunteers who took part in the event.
We had such a diverse mix of people attending and it really was a happy, blessed family occasion that brought the local community together!
The Myf will always endeavor to build bridges with the wider community as we feel its our duty to invite everybody into the centre. We are always happy to see new faces and meet and greet people from all faith groups and backgrounds.
Again thank you to everybody that was involved.
May the most high grant us many more opportunities to build bridges with the community.
Asalaamualikum All praise is due to Allah (SWT) alone and peace & blessings upon the final Messenger Muhammad (PBUH). On behalf of the MYF and WAMY – I would like thank all the volunteers who sacrificed time out on their weekend to help out with Try A Scarf project organised by WAMY. Although raining throughout most part of the day, we found shelter near Boots.
We connected with many, many people who really enjoyed the experience of wearing a scarf. Many gift bags, flowers and chocolates were distributed to passers-by who were expressed gratitude and were happy to participate (as per pictures). We ask Allah to accept it from all of us and to make it a means of opening the heart and mind to the Truth and Beauty of Islam. WAMY are are organising several more projects very soon so if you want to participate or fund these projects then please get in touch.
For those who missed the opportunity, good news!!! The MYF has an Open Day next Saturday between 12-6pm. We are looking for volunteers to help on day including distributing invitation leaflets and welcoming the guests. If you can please, please contact me.
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Ayyub that a man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) and said:
Direct me to a deed which draws me near to Paradise and takes me away from the Fire (of Hell). Upon this he (the Holy Prophet) said: You worship Allah and never associate anything with Him, establish prayer, and pay Zakat, and do good to your kin. When he turned his back, the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) remarked: If he adheres to what he has been ordered to do, he would enter Paradise.
حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ يَحْيَى التَّمِيمِيُّ، أَخْبَرَنَا أَبُو الأَحْوَصِ، ح وَحَدَّثَنَا أَبُو بَكْرِ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الأَحْوَصِ، عَنْ أَبِي إِسْحَاقَ، عَنْ مُوسَى بْنِ طَلْحَةَ، عَنْ أَبِي أَيُّوبَ، قَالَ جَاءَ رَجُلٌ إِلَى النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقَالَ دُلَّنِي عَلَى عَمَلٍ أَعْمَلُهُ يُدْنِينِي مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ وَيُبَاعِدُنِي مِنَ النَّارِ . قَالَ ” تَعْبُدُ اللَّهَ لاَ تُشْرِكُ بِهِ شَيْئًا وَتُقِيمُ الصَّلاَةَ وَتُؤْتِي الزَّكَاةَ وَتَصِلُ ذَا رَحِمِكَ ” فَلَمَّا أَدْبَرَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ” إِنْ تَمَسَّكَ بِمَا أُمِرَ بِهِ دَخَلَ الْجَنَّةَ ” . وَفِي رِوَايَةِ ابْنِ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ ” إِنْ تَمَسَّكَ بِهِ ” .
