Ramadhan With IUS

Salam Alaykum wr wb.

Inshallah this message finds you and your family well and safe during this difficult period for everyone around the globe.

We are now approaching the best of months, the blessed month of Ramadhan. Though Ramadhan 2020 will look different – away from the community centres and from our loved ones – there are many ways we can still engage with you and make the most out of the holy month.

IUS has arranged several programmes to support making the most of Ramadhan from home socially and spiritually, by hosting online lectures.

We are preparing online trainings within regional teams to plan and execute blood donation sessions more effectively, once Islamic Centres / mosques open and resume normal operations.

IHBDC is encouraging all potential donors who are fit and well to continue to donate blood after the month of Ramadhan. It is vital for the NHS to continue to collect blood for life-saving operations in this critical time.

Although IHBDC hosted sessions are temporarily on hold, your local Blood Donor Centres will remain open. NHS Blood staff are putting extra safety measures in place for individuals chosing to donate blood.

Keep up to date on the latest on the Coronavirus situation across England here

Dr Gail Miflin, chief medical officer for NHSBT, said: “We can assure people that blood donation sessions are still going ahead. If you are fit and healthy, travel to donate blood is essential for the NHS and seriously ill patients.”
“Extra safety measures are in place. For example, our trained staff will now check everyone on arrival at a session and even stricter cleaning procedures are in place once they are inside.”
“Blood donation saves lives and we will need our donors more than ever over the new few weeks and months.”
“Please keep your appointment to donate if you can.”


In Yemen, a child dies every 10 minutes from preventable causes. After 5 years of continuous conflict, Yemen is experiencing the largest humanitarian disaster in the world with 24 million Yemenis needing humanitarian assistance including 12 million children.

400,000 children in Yemen are severely malnourished meaning they’re at a higher risk of pneumonia and diarrhoea.

One parcel costs £35 and includes essential food items such as,
Rice, sugar, cooking oil, tomato paste, spaghetti, flour, dates, and tea leaves and will feed a family of 5-6 people for the whole month of Ramadhan. With your help, we plan to raise enough funds for 5000 hampers.

Despite the lockdown, IUS volunteers across the country have been very busy working on streaming internal processes, improving documentation and re-planning our future strategy for the years to come. We’ve adapted to the important social distancing measures and had many teleconferences, online meetings and video conferences to keep things moving.

This year also marks our 25th Anniversary as an organisation and so we’re looking forward to sharing with you the reflections on the journey IUS has been on over the years (and decades!). We are really excited to share our future plans through an updated Vision 2020+ which the Executive Committee has been working on, you’ll find our current one here.

Finally, IUS would like to wish you a month full of blessing, happiness, and infinite bounty.

O People! the Month of Allah (swt) has approached you with His mercies and blessings. This is the month that is the best of all the months in the estimation of Allah. Its days are best among the days; its nights are best among the nights. Its hours are best among the hours. This is a month in which you have been invited by Him. You have been, in this month, selected as the recipients of the honours from Allah, the Merciful.” [Sermon of the holy Prophet in Sha’ban]
