Our Mosque needs an Imām. Please advise us on a job description and a summary of the legal contract between the Imām and the Mosque. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh Click...
Our children are vulnerable to over sexualisation (both in language and behaviour) and teachers across the nation are worried. Ofsted should be listening to teachers, protecting our children and confronting a real and a tangible issue.
It has now has reached us with great regret and sadness that the erudite Hadeeth Scholar Shaykh Muhammad Yunus Jownpuri (RA) just passed away at Saharunpur (India)
Wifaqul Ulama agrees with the opinion expressed by Averroes that the suggestion of a 'British values oath' at a time when our society is divided will be counterproductive. We also agree that narrowing the terms of the debate to suit certain political agendas should be stopped. We need a wider debate on how to create a more inclusive Britain. Integration isn’t just a Muslim issue and all attempts to force it from the Government are likely to have to the opposite effect.

Junaid Jamshed

I am struck with grief and saddened beyond our words at the passing away of my friend. When I heard the news of the plane gone missing I was apprehensive but my feelings turned to anguish when it was confirmed that my friend was on board. At this time I don’t have the words to express my emotions but I would like Wifaqul Ulama to request all Muslims in the country to pray for everyone who has passed away in this tragedy. May Allah Ta’ala forgive the sins of everyone, grant them entry into Jannatul-Firdaus and grant patience to their families. I request special Dua for my friend who is no longer with us.
For some individuals, the number of ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ are a stamp of approval of their own existential value and self-esteem. After all, an online profile implicitly demands recognition. But, unlike in conventional advertising where we have independent regulators with teeth (like the Advertising Standards Agency and Ofcom in the UK), there isn’t anything like it for social media. Cue the scourge of ‘fake news.’ The click bait culture, that fuels online populism is a well orchestrated money-making scheme.

Today people think that women are liberated in the West and that the Women’s liberation movement began in the 20th century. Actually, the women’s liberation movement was not begun by women, but was revealed by God to a man in the seventh century by the name of Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, the last Prophet of God. The Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet are the sources from which every Muslim woman derives her rights and duties.

Muslim Ban

I believe that this ban not only goes against basic human values of trust, compassion, tolerance and decency but will also prove to be an impediment in the fight against terrorism. I find that many in America such as Republican Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina agree with my assessment. I urge our Prime Minister Theresa May to stand up for our fundamental British values and for her Government to take a much stronger stance in ensuring that this executive order is reversed, promptly. I will be joining the protest in front of 10 Downing Street and I urge all Muslims particularly our Scholars and community leaders to stand with all those who are united against injustice.

London Attack

What happened at London was Murder and Murder should be investigated and punished. We are London and we stand together, more united than ever, more resolute than ever. Cowardly attacks will not neither break our resolve, nor divide us.
