lim Aid, Sir Iqbal Sacranie, said: “Inter-faith work fosters mutual dialogue, cooperation and practical engagement providing faith communities with real solutions for a harmonious and peaceful society. The common thread of humanity, peace and justice unites us all irrespective of faith to overcome poverty and hu-

manitarian crises. Faith based NGOs deserve due recognition at the national and international level as catalysts for bringing a positive change in society and promoting respect and understanding amongst diverse communities.” Since its inception in 1985, Muslim Aid has been working with people from all faiths and backgrounds. Muslim Aid Sri Lanka and its global partner the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) hosted a conference last year which brought together international and national religious leaders to build on inter-faith initiatives for peace and reconciliation exchange in Sri Lanka. Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, Muslim Aid partnered with Progressio for humanitarian assistance in Haiti. Muslim Aid has been working with a number of NGOs over the years and has built excellent relationships with both faith-based and nonfaith-based NGOs to strengthen their work of serving humanity.

Islamic Circles and Ebrahim Community College presents: 1) BOOK LAUNCH: ABU HANIFAH - HIS LIFE, LEGAL METHOD AND LEGACY (Published by Kube Publishing) Lecture and book signing by Shaykh Mohammed Akram Nadwi (OXCIS)* Date: Friday 3rd December 2010 Time: 6.15pm - 8pm Venue: Ebrahim College, 80 Greenfield Road, London E1 1EJ Abu Hanifah Nu'man ibn Thabit (d. 150/767) is one of the great pioneers in the history of Islamic Law. He was among the first to deploy the recognized methods of legal reasoning consistently, and to gather the judgements and rulings of his time into a systematic corpus. The fiqh that evolved from his style of reasoning, carried on by his brilliant students, became associated with his name. The Hanafi school is the one most widely followed among the world's Sunni Muslims. This study of Abu Hanifah's life and legacy is based on the traditional sources. It includes a short survey of how Hanafi fiqh evolved in different regions of the Islamic world. It offers a clear reminder of the criteria and conditions traditionally applied before any ruling gained general acceptance. Shaykh Mohammed Akram Nadwi, former student then teacher of Hanafi and Shafi'i law at the prestigious Nadwat al-Ulama (Lucknow, India), is currently a Research Fellow at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies. He is the author (in Arabic) of several biographies, and editions and translations of classical hadith and fiqh works. His most recent publications in English are a multi-volume primer of Hanafi fiqh (al-Fiqh al-Islami, 2007), and al-Muhaddithat: the Women Scholars in Islam (2007).

The Muslim Community Helpline has been operation since March 2007 and aims to provide a listening and emotional support service for members of the community. Prior to its launch, members of the group had worked for 19 years founding and running the Muslim Women’s Helpline. For main issues arising from our dealings with clients, see News section for latest newsletter. The service operates Monday to Friday 10 am to 1 pm. Members also give talks, participate in consultations, train and contribute expertise and insights gained from their experience. We are members of various bodies including National Coalition for Independent Associations. For those who do not know, the Helpline is reliant on voluntary donations and the occasional philanthropic grant from a private trust – for which we are grateful. As a result, the Helpline operates from the homes of volunteers using a call diversion service. The Helpline is currently operating on less than £3,000 per year. Service Operates Monday to Friday, 10am to 1pm (core hours) Call: 0208 904 8193 or 020 8908 6715 We welcome support for our voluntary work. Contact us by email ess4m@btinternet.com

British Academy of Qur'anic Studies (BAQS) presents a one-day intensive course on: Monthly Qur‟anic Seminars [MQS] A Father‟s Counsel: Tafsir Surah al-Luqman The major part of Surah Luqman is devoted to the words of the sage whose name it bears. It is related that the Quraysh asked the prophet [saw] about Luqman [as], waiting to learn about him, and this surah was revealed to him in response to their request. It contains the essence of his wisdom in the form of advice he gave to his son which was full of profound benefit. Luqman [as] the Sage had more insight in to the truth summarises the eternal truth in the most succinct manner for the benefit of his son and also left it as a noble legacy for all subsequent generations. The advice of Luqman [as] to his son begins with Foundation of all knowledge - the recognition of the Unity in Allah; Parents – they are the outward source of human existence and it is vital for the health of any society that children show great honour and respect; Right Actions – This one counsel alone would be sufficient for a whole lifetime of right actions; Warning against Pride – the fountainhead of all the destructive vices of the heart; and Practical ways of eliminating it. All the advices taken – contain all that a human being needs and is such that, if put in practice, it is sufficient to enable someone to live a complete and fulfilled life. The Quran mentions its o that we may benefit from the wisdom it contains, and certainly wisdom is what the believer seeks. INSTRUCTORImam Sadrul Alam Imam Sadrul Alam studied and graduated in the six year Alim course at Darul Uloom Al-Arabiyya AlIslamiyya, Bury where he studied a variety of sciences from Arabic language, literature, hadith, aqeedah and Tafsir.

Etiquettes of the Mobile Phone Islam has never been opposed to advancement. However, some advancements are such that together with their benefits come many harms. Whilst mobile technology and the mobile phone in particular has revolutionised the way we live, it is important that we utilise such technology appropriately. In The Masjid When attending the masjid one should switch off his mobile. Failure to do so will result in one being disrespectful to the house of Allah as well being a means of disturbance to others if the phone were to ring. It is prudent not to even leave the phone in vibration mode. In this situation if the phone were to go off during salaah, not only will it divert the phone owner‟s attention it will also disturb the person next to him. Many people immediately after the completion of salaah check their phones for possible missed calls or messages. This shows that although one was physically standing in the court of Allah mentally he was elsewhere. Thus we should switch our phones off before entering the masjid, and until we leave, not pay attention towards them. Free Minutes We all know about the amount of free minutes that are available on various contracts and the craze of gathering and using many minutes as possible. Just because we have a contract which gives us 500 minutes free talk time does not necessarily mean that we have to use all of these 500 minutes before the end of the month. Why should we talk unnecessarily and waste the precious minutes of our life for the sake of finishing off the free minutes on our phone. Text Messages One should not forward every text message to everyone immediately. One should first think if the message is correct Islamically and should also ponder whether it is appropriate for the person you are sending it to. For example if the recipient is a senior one should ensure that the words are respectful A trend nowadays is to send Eid and Jumuah greetings via text message. However, more often than not the story or phrase used as part of the message is not authentic. In such a case one inadvertently becomes a means of propagating something which is concocted. Whenever one sends a text message it is prudent to write one‟s name at the end of the text. This is important because it is possible that the person you are texting has not saved your number on his mobile. As a result he will be confused when he receives the text for he will not know who the sender is. Ring Tones We should make sure that we have an appropriate ring tone on our mobile phone. To keep a musical ring tone is haram as the playing of music, or being a means of it being played is a sin. It is quite unfortunate that even whilst performing tawaaf in front of the Ka‟bah, or whilst presenting salaam to the Prophet sallallaahu „alayhi wasallam, peoples phone‟s ring causing the sanctity of these sacred places to be tainted. Many people have the Adhaan and Qur‟aan recitation as ring tones on their mobile phones. This practice, while well intentioned, is not correct. The purpose of the Adhaan is not to inform us that someone is phoning us. Likewise the Qur‟aan was not revealed to serve us as an alert tone. How Many Rings If when ringing someone one finds that the phone cuts off after a few rings or diverts to an answering machine, then the caller may try again. One should retry a maximum of three times for it may be that the person was busy and as he approached the phone it stopped ringing and thus he was unable to answer. However, there are some phones that do not divert or cut-off and keep ringing. If that is the case then the caller should let it continue ringing for a while, and then consider it sufficient to put the phone down. By not answering this indicates that the person is either busy or away from the phone.

We are stroke survivors from The Stroke Club in Newham. Stroke has a greater disability impact than any other medical condition. A quarter of a million people are living with long -term disability as a result of stroke in the UK. Aphasia is usually a result of a stroke but can also occur due to a head injury, a brain haemorrhage or tumour. It is usually a hidden disability as there are unlikely to be any apparent visual signs. Some people cannot speak at all; some people have just a few words. Others can no longer read, write or use numbers. About 2.5 million people live with different difficulties affecting speech, language and literacy. The some service providers are discriminate against disabled stroke survivor. All we ask is gives disabled people important rights of access to everyday services. We all want to live in communities where we can participate fully equally and proper choices. The service such as public bodies, local authorities, government departments, hospitals, voluntary or community sector organisations, charities ect. The service providers have to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people in the way they deliver their services. This is so that a disabled person is not put at a substantial disadvantage compared to non -disabled people in accessing the services. The Equality Act makes the law on accessibility is about providing services that people can use relatively easily, like Easy Read with Pictures, photosymbols and easy to read words. We ask your organisations to reducing disadvantage and promote inclusion stroke survivors at greatest risk. We have disabilities with learning difficulties to deal with every day we wish to accessible information and grant application forms. We ask you to Support for People Affected by Stroke when carrying out their functions, to have due regard to the need to: · promote equality of opportunity for disabled people · eliminate unlawful discrimination · eliminate disability related harassment · promote positive attitudes towards disabled people · encourage participation of disabled people in public life · take into account disabled people’s disabilities · even where that involves treating disabled people more favourably It is essential therefore, that services and supports for individuals who have learning disabilities and challenging behaviour are person-centred and understand why the person behaves as they do Have your organisations implement services “accessible information” for disabled people?

About Us Road to Hope (previously known as Life Line 5 to Gaza LL5) is an independent collective of experienced international convoy and flotilla members, peace and non-violence activists, members of NGOs acting in a personal capacity, and many others from a broad range of backgrounds, countries and different organisations. We are normal people, humanitarians, with one common aim of contributing to the world-wide effort to break the siege and blockade of Gaza by bringing practical aid to its people, alongside highlighting the plight of all Palestinians around the world, whether in diaspora among middle east and western countries, denied their rights and citizenships or subjected to occupation, oppression, imprisonment, collective punishment, apartheid and ethnic cleansing by, bravely, continuing their cultured, highly educated way of life in Palestine and Israel. Road to Hope is just one small project of many in this field. However, it has its own particular flavour: experienced convoyers with a passion to succeed for the broadest base of Palestinians possible. We are unaffiliated to any political organisations and have no single faith bias. Instead, refreshingly, we welcome people of all political backgrounds and religious leanings; yet we are subjective by not condoning the kinds of extremism that lead to facism, racism, homophobia, islamophobia, anti-semitism in its true sense, sexism and the like.

Life and Death (extract) Be happy with your beloved you can't find any better the world will shimmer because of the diamond you hold when your heart is immersed in this blissful love you can easily endure any bitter face around in the absence of malice there is nothing but happiness and good times don't dwell in sorrow my friend

Poetry of Allama Iqbal Words spoken from the Heart never fail to have an Effect! They have no Wings and yet they have Power to fly! Sacred and Pure their origin, on lofty heights their sights are set. They rise from the dust and Pierce through the sky!

Sikander’s Poetry Corner The Departed I look at you and a tear comes into my eye There are many things I want to say to you Quiet you are, immersed in your woes and worries I look at your beautiful face, battered by the winds of time I kiss the frown on your forehead Time has brought you to your knees The once giant, now silenced by pains Agony all over, helpless and powerless I pass my hands through the fields of grey The smell of Lavender melts my heart I place my head in your lap And disappear in the loving cradle I wish I could turn back the clock I would cherish every moment What I would do for one last hug Sadly, you had to depart

HMC was born essentially out of one concern and one concern only; to be able to provide assurance that we are eating genuine Halal, not just “because it says Halal… it must be Halal!" HMC is the product of a particular, prolonged situation – a situation of deceit and treachery. Muslims are being betrayed by individuals & corporations whose only concern is making fast, easy money. Using 'blessed blades', pre recorded Bismillah, captive bolts, electrified water and even pork proteins; the hard-earned Halal cash of many is being used to buy Haram. HMC has therefore, shouldered the enormous responsibility of discharging an obligatory duty on behalf of you, the community at large. Help HMC to Help You!

A shambles of a performance in the first forty five minutes saw the hosts go in to the dressing room only two nil down, but for some fantastic saves from goalkeeper Steve Brown and some awful finishing by the visitors, the score could and should have been double that. APSA never got to grips with the opposition‟s tactics, as attack after attack tore through the host‟s midfield and rained down on the host‟s goal. How Barkingside took

APSA 0 (0) vs (2) 3 Barkingside 40 mins before breaking the deadlock is a mystery to everyone who was at the Terrance Macmillan stadium. APSA‟s own offensive play was deprived of any real skill and consisted of playing long balls in to the opposition half, and losing possession in the last third of the pitch time after time.

The same player would kill the game off half way in the second half with his second of the match The hosts put up a better show in the second half, after the introduction of new boy Adi (on for Lee) with half chances for Hind, Callaway and O‟Keefe (on for Scott), but the ball either sailed passed the visitors goal or the keeper made easy saves. What has happened to APSA‟s excellant early season form is a mystery, as the side has now slammed to their sixth straight defeat, and baring the penalty shoot-out victory in the Essex Senior cup against Basildon United on the 14th of October, John Higley's men have not won a game in normal ninety minutes play in thirteen attempts.
