Hajj & Umrah Fees

There has been confusion about the rise in VISA fees for both Umrah and Hajj. British Muslims have yet to review the exact amounts and the breakdown of VISA fees. However, reacting to what is being reported in the Media, we are anxious and concerned. We are concerned because the rise in VISA fees may put significant financial constraints in the path of those who wish to visit the Holy Mosques. It is likely that some people will be discouraged from achieving their lifetime dream of visiting Saudi Arabia.

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.

Aleppo Burning!

We subscribe to pluralism and peaceful coexistence and acknowledge the freedom and rights of every individual or community or race to believe as they choose to believe without coercion, fear and intimidation. Therefore, we unequivocally condemn the brutal killings of civilians in Syria. The harm to them is unbearable and must stop. We reflect the sentiments of Andrew Mitchell, a Conservative MP who co-chairs the parliamentary Friends of Syria, “The house should urgently discuss not ‘something must be done’, but ‘what in the name of humanity we, the international community, will do to save those who today are in such dreadful jeopardy."

East Ghouta

The Syrian government, with the backing of Russia, is intentionally targeting its own people in Eastern Ghouta. People have not only been suffering a cruel siege for the past six years, they are now trapped in a daily barrage of attacks that are deliberately killing and maiming them, and that constitute flagrant war crimes.
