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.
Our open day on Saturday 26 March 2016 was a very successful event. We opened our doors to the general public, welcomed everyone to come and see our exhibitions, and learn about Islam.
We had various stalls set up for our visitors, some of these stalls were; Henna, costumes, calligraphy, face painting for children and food stalls.
Imaam, Imtiaz Hussain lead numerous mosque tours on that day for people who wanted to see the mosque and what goes on inside our centre.
There was a steady stream of visitors throughout the day, they enjoyed a nice event with us, chatting and learning more about our centre and about Islam.
We had a special appearance from the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, they were invited, but we did not expect them to turn up in a great big red fire engine.
This by far was the highlight of the day. Mr Peter Fitzpatrick and his colleagues were extremely friendly and very professional as well. We would like to thank all of them for their presence and for being with us on that day, they have yet again showed us that they can be at the heart of the community as they are always expected to be. We couldn’t thank them enough for their support.
The MYF would also like to thank each and every one who contributed to our open day, thanks to our visitors for allowing us to share this event with them. A big thanks to all our volunteers for their amazing work. The open day would not have been possible without their great support.
