Community Outreach Projects
Abud-Darda (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “Seek among your weak ones, for you are given provision and help only because of the weak amongst you.”
Islam is a complete way of life. Not only are we taught how to perfect our ibaadaat (acts of worship) and Mu’aashiraat (transactions, trade), but we are also taught mu’aamilaat (how to deal with people).
Here, at Darul Ilm we aim to help the community by running many different support programs and projects to assist wherever possible.
Life After Loss – Bereavement Support Group
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
We went with Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) to the blacksmith Abu Saif, and he was the husband of the wet-nurse of Ibrahim (the son of the Prophet). Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) took Ibrahim and kissed him and smelled him and later we entered Abu Saif’s house and at that time Ibrahim was in his last breaths, and the eyes of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) started shedding tears. `Abdur Rahman bin `Auf said, “O Allah’s Apostle, even you are weeping!” He said, “O Ibn `Auf, this is mercy.” Then he wept more and said, “The eyes are shedding tears and the heart is grieved, and we will not say except what pleases our Lord, O Ibrahim! Indeed we are grieved by your separation.”
We’ve all lost a loved one, regardless. And although it’s healthy to grieve, sometimes we never quite get over it.
Ta’ziyah is an Islamic concept of consolement and sympathizing with the bereaved. If you are finding it particularly difficult, then please don’t grieve alone in silence.

Free Counselling Sessions
The Prophet (ﷺ) said:
“Never a believer is stricken with a discomfort, an illness, anxiety, a grief or mental worry or even the pricking of a thorn but Allah will expiate his sins on account of his patience”.
We all have ups and downs in life and sometimes we just need that extra little bit of support or help or that listening ear to get us through our tough times. If you are experiencing a rough patch then please don’t hesitate to come to see us.
We are open every Wednesday at 10 am. Free counseling by Apa Rina. Sessions are by appointment only.
*We also provide support to people who cannot read or write in filling out forms
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Cleanliness is half of faith
It is very disappointing, and not to mention embarrassing, that we Muslims have a large population (27%) in Birmingham but our neighborhoods are disastrously filthy and dirty. Where we live and stay reflects who we are as people. And that is why we say, ‘Enough is enough!’ No to fly-tipping sofas, refrigerators, mattresses, etc. No to dumping takeaway leftovers, cartons and boxes, etc. No to wasting food and drink and throwing them on the streets etc. The earth is a trust to us and we must take care of this trust entrusted to us by Allah.
For this very cause, Darul Ilm Birmingham has organized its very own group to clean its streets.
Ibn ‘Abbas said, “There are 360 joints and each of them owes sadaqah every single day. Every good word is sadaqah. A man helping his brother is sadaqah. A drink of water that he gives is sadaqah. Removing something harmful from the road is sadaqah.”
Do your bit by cleaning your neighborhood whilst earning large amounts of reward by practicing this beautiful Hadith. If we were all conscious of the rulings of Islam and we all worked collectively; each masjid, institute kept certain areas clean and tidy, then Birmingham would flourish.
