Inheritance Awareness

In September 2018 WFU arranged a Meerath (inheritance) seminar at Masjid E Umer, Walthamstow. The event was organised due to the pressing need of educating the Muslim community on the importance of having a will and how to have one made taking into consideration Islamic rulings as well as British Laws of inheritance. A presentation was delivered by iWills, an organisation specialising in this field. The event was very educational and well attended by both brothers and sisters.  In October 2019 a dedicated training session was organised for local scholars at Leytonstone Masjid.  WFU hopes to follow these events up with [...]

Unified Khutbah

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Mental Health Training

In July 2018 WFU teamed up with Inspirited Minds, an organisation working on Mental Health awareness, to hold a 1 day seminar on the topic. The seminar took place in Walthamstow for local scholars and the general public, with the aim to gain more of an insight into different aspects of Mental Health and how it affects many people within our community. The seminar was very productive and we hope to be able to work with Inspirited Minds again in the future to hold more training sessions on more specific areas of Mental Health.

Ramadan Schools Advice Pack

In the build up to Ramadan 2018 and 2019, WFU prepared, printed and distributed a Ramadan fasting advice pack to all Waltham Forest state schools. This pack contained religious advice for staff, pupils and parents with matters related to the month of Ramadan and fasting, in particular dealing with the long fasting hours and exams. From the feedback received, one school suggested arranging an assembly to be delivered to the whole school. This is a project WFU will be looking into for the future.

Ramadan Noise Nuisance

WFU launched a campaign in Ramadan 2018 to tackle the issue of noise nuisance from Masajid during Ramadan especially at the times of Iftar and Taraweeh. Many Masajid in Waltham Forest are situated in residential areas and noise caused by attendees to the Masjid often has a negative impact on those living in the area around the Masjid. The campaign included educating the attendees on etiquettes and reminding them of our duties towards neighbours. Imams gave regular reminders and announcements. Masajid were given packs containing guidance notes and resources including posters for display and leaflets for distribution. A short draft letter [...]

Mosques Open Day

On 18th February 2018 several Masajid in Waltham Forest opened their doors to non-Muslim visitors as part of the nationwide ‘Visit My Mosque’ initiative. In the run up to this, WFU held a meeting with volunteers from various Masaajid in which ideas were shared on how to make these events successful. Alhumdulillah the open days were very well attended by people from all backgrounds and the feedback received was very positive. WFU hopes to be able to build on this by arranging similar events throughout the year to build on community engagement.

Winter Youth Programs

In 2017 WFU collaborated with Masajid across the borough to hold a series of events and programmes around the December holiday period. The main aim of the programmes were to bring as many people into the environment of the Masjid as possible during the holiday season - in particular youngsters. There were many talks by various scholars on youth related topics along with Q&A sessions, games, food, overnight stays and other group activities. An inter-masjid football tournament was also arranged with teams participating from many different local Muslim organisations. The programmes were very successful and many more similar initiatives took place [...]

Sisters’ Accessibility

In 2017 WFU ventured on a project focusing on the provision of services and facilities for sisters in local Masajid. Research was conducted to find out what was currently available to sisters and also what there was a need for. Three surveys were created for this purpose: One was aimed at male and female scholars to gather their views on arrangements for sisters in Masajid from a religious view point, the second was for responsible individuals in Masjid management to find out their perspective on the services they provide to sisters and the third survey was for the for sisters in [...]
