(Peace be upon you!)
Welcome to our Sisters United page – A project dedicated to serving the needs and empowering and uplifting the morale of the women and girls of our community. Here, you will find many of the services and fun events organised by our team of sincere and active staff and volunteers.
We look forward to having you on board!
Our youth are the future of Islam and we believe it is so so important that they grow up with the love of the religion in their hearts, the want to become a better person and contribute to society, and the passion to leave a legacy behind.
In many institutes however, we see that youth activities are reserved only for the boys. Not on our watch! At Darul Ilm Birmingham, we strongly believe everyone matters and we leave no one behind. Our ‘Girls Night’ segment is dedicated to all young girls and females who would like to dive into enjoyable evenings of fun, laughter and (don’t forget) food! We have many fun activities going on like charity bakes, quizzes, games, movie nights and much more!
The light hearted, amusing atmosphere, combined with inspirational speeches and reminders, make our Girls Night one to not be forgotten. Don’t miss out on the fun. Call us on 07913 238 026 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Befriending Circles and Reminders
Our befriending circles work to address loneliness and transform lives of people with various needs, whether you are new to the area, a new Muslim, or you just want to make friends with people on the Deen – Everybody is welcome.
Narrated Abu-Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him); ‘Allah’s Messenger (May Allah exalt his mention and protect him from imperfection) said: “All Muslims are brothers. A Muslim does not wrong his fellow-Muslim, desert him, nor despise him. Piety is found here – (pointing three times to his chest) – despising one’s Muslim brother is enough evil for any man to do. Every Muslim’s blood, property and honour are unlawful to be violated by another Muslim.” (At-Tirmidhi).
Our befriending circles encourage friendships and provide a social platform and a safe space so that those who are going through a rough patch or are lonely can benefit as much as everyone else. We passionately believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to have and make friends. We do manage many events for everyone with severe and multiple needs and also for younger people who who in the transitional stages of their lives.
Food Rotas and Grocery Support
Food poverty and hunger affects about 1.5 million people in the UK daily with many people unable to access food throughout the day. A growing number of vulnerable children are also growing up facing the pressures of severe food insecurity.
The Prophet (saw) taught us that none of us can be a believer if he eats to his full whilst his neighbour goes hungry. On top of that, it has been mentioned that the best charity is to feed a hungry stomach.
Therefore, we, as an institution, offer eligible families grocery support from our food bank. We also do deliveries for the vulnerable and elderly who may need food or medicine delivered.
We are still operating during the pandemic so if you do require any deliveries, please do not hesitate to contact us. We deliver to Muslims and non-Muslims alike and do not discriminate. If you are self-isolating, then please do let us know when you call as we do offer no-contact deliveries as well.
Please contact us on 07913 238 026 or email us on email@example.com
We have a really big announcement to make which we just have to share with you!
In two weeks time we will be opening up our very own community soup kitchen, In sha Allah (God willing)! This hot food kitchen will be running every Friday and everybody is welcome. If you would like to volunteer, then do contact us on the number provided above.
Monthly Outings and Holiday Play Scheme
We, as an institution organise monthly outings for the wider community. Sometimes it’s nice just to have a change of scenery and visit new places or do things you’ve never done before. This is specifically for our women.
During the holidays there are also a variety of activities and trips for children. In the summer we also run a summer school with various activities such as sports days, archery sessions, horse riding, boat rides and picnics. The outings and schemes are run by enthusiastic and passionate staff who aim to provide fun and challenging activities in a safe environment.
At the moment, this service has been put on hold due to the virus but we do have many exciting things planned post-virus, in sha Allah!
The Prophet (saw) said, “Never is a believer stricken with a discomfort, illness, anxiety, grief, 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 all we need is that extra bit of support or that listening ear to get us through our tough times. Some of us are tested in such a way that we feel we are drowning while we are alive and that there’s no hope. If you are going through a tough time and you need someone to talk to, then we want to let you know that yes, we are here. Our counselling sessions are free and are by appointment only every Wednesday at 10 am by Alimah Rina.
Our professional counselling services are still operating and you can choose to have phone counselling or face to face counselling.
