Eid – al Fitr Message from John Cryer MP

I send best wishes and greetings to the Muslim Community in Redbridge and Waltham Forest.

Ramadan has been a time for many to come together in devotion, reflection, and service. We remember others, both in the UK and across the world who are less fortunate than ourselves and are suffering great hardships. We particularly think of families in Burma and in Syria, many of whom will have lost loved ones over the past year.

This time of year also serves to remind us of the importance of the part we all play in our community. Over the past year our community from all different parts of the country and of all faiths and backgrounds have come together to celebrate the best of our country in the Jubilee and Olympic celebrations.

Thank you for the part you have played in showing the best of our country to the world. I am proud of our community with its diversity and strong in its values of respect, understanding and tolerance.

 Eid Mubarak.

 John Cryer MP

The Masjid Management has organised a second Public Consultation Meeting at 6:30pm Saturday 7th July 2012 in order to seek suggestions on how best to meet the aspirations of the local community. We urge our local worshippers to attend, particularly our sisters, and to spread the word amongst the local community.

This second Consultation will be held in the downstairs hall. All are welcome - brothers and sisters. The Trustees will be present in shaa' Allaah to answer any questions from the community, and to take their constructive opinions.

We sincerely pray that together we can make this Masjid a Centre of Excellence that meets the needs of the people who live here.
