Masjid al-Tawhid is supporting Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation in Islamabad, Pakistan to provide a Qurbani/Udhhiya service for Eid al-Adhaa. Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation also operates an Orphan Sponsorship programme.

Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation hope to provide a personal and hands-on service that most other charities lack. Most charities are content to slaughter all their livestock in the more accessible large camps, rather than trouble themselves to going deep into the hills. We, through our network of schools try to get the meat to the most inaccessible areas. There we help the poorest people who otherwise would not have meat on Eid.

The prices of sacrificial animals are as below:

Sheep: £100
Cow: £400 (share £57)
Camel: £1000 (share £143)

Please contact the Masjid Office for more details and in order to book a sacrificial animal.

We pray that Allah may accept our sacrifice and good deeds done during the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah.

Alhamdulillaah, the Sisters' Bazaar for the Burmese Rohingya Muslims, held on 16th September, raised £6050. This will be passed on to Ummah Welfare Trust. The Masjid would like to thank all those who donated to this noble cause, and particularly the sisters who arranged the event. May Allaah grant us the tawfeeq to assist our needy brothers and sisters around the world.

Alhamdu lillaah, over 4000 counter demonstrators ensured that the 150-odd EDL racists who arrived in Walthamstow on Saturday 1st September were thoroughly humiliated. This successful action by ordinary residents of Waltham Forest has shown the EDL that they have no place here.

WALTHAM FOREST COUNCIL OF MOSQUES

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ACTION AGAINST THE EDL (English Defence League)

11am SATURDAY 1st September 2012

Walthamstow Arcade (Top of High street)

 

On Saturday 1st September 2012 the EDL plan to come to Waltham Forest to spread their hatred and division.

The WF Council of Mosques, as well as other groups, have pressed the Police to ban their march but it is still going ahead.

The only way we can stop the EDL from coming back to our borough again and again is to have a massive counter-demo to show the World they are not welcome and we will not sit back and allow them to attack Islam and spread their hatred here.

Their aim is to attack Islam, physically and verbally, and promote Islamophobia, and here are some of the things they have done in the past:

1) EDL members (Simon Beech and Garreth Foster) burnt a Mosque (Regent road) in Stoke-on-Trent last year.

2) EDL supporter (Andrew Ryan) stole a Quran Majid from a Library and burnt it in Carlisle demo last year.

3) Having blasphemous Placards against the Holy Prophet (SAW)

4) In July 2012, Dudley, the EDL hard core showed that they are violently racist when they went on the rampage through the town, smashing the windows of houses a Hind Temple, shops and cars. When attacking the Hindu Temple with rocks they were shouting 'Pakis' and 'Muzzies' and chasing Hindus who joined the counter-demo. But Dudley’s Muslims and UAF (United Against Fascism) chased them out.

We, as Muslims, have a duty to protect the honour of Islam and defend our communities from hatred and division. Every Muslim must make their best effort to attend this counter- demo, otherwise it will be easy for the EDL to come back again. Standing for justice is a requirement in the deen and we should obviously be at forefront of this when the primary target is Islam itself.

Under the banner of the "WE ARE WALTHAM FOREST" campaign we must all join the counter demo. Spread the message to all you know insha Allah.

WFCOM, August 2012

In shaa' Allaah Eid will be on Sunday 19th August 2012.

We ask Allaah 'azza wa jall to accept our good deeds from this blessed month and to help us to maintain our increased 'ibaadah after Ramadan has ended.

On the day of Eid, please park your cars sensibly, or use public transport. Please arrive and leave calmly, and ensure neighbours of the masjid are not disturbed.

We have spoken to the council and in shaa' Allaah there will be some relaxation of parking restrictions on Eid Day where Olympic Parking Restrictions apply. This means that you can use the residents parking bays in the side streets whether Eid is on Saturday or Sunday. However, you can only use the parking bays on the High Road if Eid is on Sunday.

However, please do not park irresponsibly or you will still get a ticket.

jazaakum Allaah khaira.
