Salam Aleykum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatu
“And hold firmly to the rope of God all together and do not become divided…”
On behalf of the Islamic Unity Society (IUS), I would like to extend our warm wishes to you and your families on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr.
We are thankful to Allah (swt) for have been given the opportunity to re-establish and strengthen our relationship with Him, ourselves and the society we live in. Engaging in prayers, supplication, contemplation and worship in this blessed month provided us with an opportunity to seek closeness to Allah (swt) and re-evaluate the purpose of our life and the path we are taking in this journey.
During this month, we saw once again the life of innocent people taken by the enemies of humanity, our hearts and thoughts are with the victims and their families. During these difficult times, the British community came out and continue to do so in solidarity and support of their fellow citizens to condemn and stand against all types of terrorism and work with different communities and local authorities to work for a safer and more peaceful society.
Extending a helping hand to those in need, bonding and standing together with other members of the wider society enabled us to also strengthen our relationship with the society we live in. I pray that we can all continue to work together as a united community, to maintain the social and individual spirit of the holy month of Ramadan throughout the year.
Our volunteers nationwide have been busy during the holy month of Ramadhan bringing together successful events for the community. All lectures and events will be uploaded onto our website so feel free to catch up on recordings at www.ius.org.uk.
Finally, the same way that Allah (swt) invites the whole of humanity to benefit from the blessings of the month of Ramadhan, we should also extend our helping hands to all of mankind and support one another to build and better our society. Our website has many useful resources, if you would like to support the activities of IUS or get involved, please visit www.ius.org.uk/get-involved/
