Looking for marriage?
Found that special someone?
What to do next?
Let AlKauthar show you the way!

Nurture your LOVE through FIQH!

“Marriage in Islam is not about two people getting married to be happy,
it’s about two people getting married to make eachother happy” 😉

 

THE CAUSE

 

Cageprisoners are a human rights organisation that exists solely to raise awareness of the plight of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and other detainees held as part of the War on Terror.

 

They serve the brothers and sisters who have been severely tested. Who have been isolated from their families, caged like animals in the searing tropical heat, forcefully shaven and stripped naked, humiliated by their oppressors. But also people who Allah has declared that He loves, people Allah has singled out to purify from their sins like fire purifies steel.

 

 

THE PRICE

      Students: £25

      6 or more tickets £40

      Individual tickets: £50

      Table of 10: £350

 

 

THE EVENT

 

The dinner will have the largest gathering of ex-Guantanamo detainees from all around Europe to date.

You will be listening to the likes of Moazzam Begg and Imam Anwar Al Awlaki, in his first live public address since his release from prison, less than a year ago. You will have the opportunity to take away with you the letters that they wrote in Guantanamo, previously unseen sketches conceived in the cages of Camp Delta, bid for books and DVDs signed by these inspirational brothers.

These are people who have learnt a lesson you cannot learn on a weekend seminar or from a book. They have had every hope and assistance stripped away from them until they tasted the sweetness of abandoning all reliance on anything other that Allah


If seeing these brothers and meeting them does not fill your heart with ambition and jealousy at the favour Allah has bestowed upon them with the rank He has given them – what else will?

 

WHERE YOUR MONEY WILL GO

 

“Should you look inside my heart, my eyes have developed wounds by weeping” Zeinab Khatoon, mother of one of Pakistan’s disappeared.

This is a fundraising dinner, which means that every penny raised goes straight back to helping the prisoners.

That’s means the price of your ticket is Sadaqah, pure and simple. You will be giving the sadaqah in Ramadan, the recipients of the sadaqa are working to free and help the oppressed. The Prophet, SAW, was asked, ‘Which type of charity is best?’ He responded, “Charity done during Ramadan.”

 

Assalamu alaykum

Inshallah I may be going to this.

It will be a walk in the park 😉

Muslim Aid and Oxfam have teamed up for the Sunset Walk,

 a short stroll with a big heart. It’s your chance to take part in the season of Ramadan. To make new friends as you walk and talk – and raise money to provide food for poor communities worldwide. It’s the most sociable and laid back fundraising you’ll ever do. And when the sun goes down, you’ll share a fabulously tasty meal at the London Central Mosque.

All the money you raise will go to a variety of food aid projects. Please download our poster for more details

To register online, visit the Oxfam website or alternatively download a registration form from this page.

 

Get involved

All you need to do is sign-up at Oxfam and pay a £5 deposit. You can sign up on the day – but it saves us money if you pre-register online. Tell family, friends, and others in your community. Encourage them to get involved too by going to our spread the word page.

The Route

The walk meanders through Mayfair and Hyde Park – finishing at the London Central Mosque, Park Road, Regent’s Park. (See online for route details).
You can join the four-mile walk along the route at several points (see below), but remember to get your application in as soon as possible so we know how many people are joining where. It’s better for us if you can register in advance via the website (it saves us money!), but you can also complete and post the registration form.

  • Start 2: Berkley Square (Central Mayfair) – 3 miles
  • Start 3: Manchester Square gardens (Nr. Baker Street Tube Station) – 1 mile
  • Finish: London Central Mosque (Nr Regent’s Park)

Once you have completed the walk, there will be some fabulous food on offer when you reach the London Central Mosque, as well as a number of cultural events. Here’s the times-

Timings:

  • 5.00pm First group sets off
  • 7.30pm Food is served at the London Central Mosque
  • 8.00pm Speeches and cultural events at the LCM

Fundraising

We’re asking every walker to raise at least £50, through sponsorship. The increasing costs of basics like rice, corn and wheat mean that the world’s poorest people are suffering most. Oxfam and Muslim Aid have already implemented many food and nutrition programmes across the world, and are committed to helping communities find solutions to food shortages. The funds raised will be divided equally by Muslim Aid and Oxfam and used to support this area of work.

So what are waiting for, Join Muslim Aid and Oxfam for a special stroll in the park!

We can start by doing some voluntary work within the community. There is a host of opportunities out there, we just need to find the one we will be the most effective positive difference.
