Ummah Welfare Trust provides support and vital food and medical aid to our brothers and sisters in Gaza, Syria and beyond (Ummah Welfare trust operates in over 20 countries worldwide). Whilst Palestinians are being bombed daily from the air, sea and land, whilst under siege and under occupation, Syrians are facing oppression, Ummah Welfare Trust is relying on our generous donations to provide food and medical aid to provide much needed assistance. It is extremely disturbing to note that in these difficult times, HSBC has issued Ummah welfare trust a notice of only two months to close down its accounts.

What should our response be?

1. Boycott and close down your personal and business accounts with HSBC.

2. Inform your contacts worldwide in the Muslim world and further afar to boycott HSBC Globally

3. Continue donating to the charity on to increase our aid efforts.

4. Protest by sending an email to

Ramadhan is around the corner. It is a time of year when we abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset and nourish ourselves spiritually. It is a time when we try to improve our character and reflect on the blessings we have and remember those less fortunate.

When we break our fasts, it would be plainly wrong to eat dates which help continue the oppression of Palestinians. However, many people unknowingly do just that.

Every year, Israel exports millions of pounds worth of dates to the world. These dates may be grown in illegal settlements in the West Bank and the Jordan Valley, on land that has been stolen from Palestinians. By buying these dates, we are helping Israel to continue its occupation and oppression of the Palestinian people.

The 'Check the Label - Boycott Israeli Dates' campaign aims to inform people for the first time, or simply remind them not to break their fast with dates which are from Israel, West Bank or Jordan Valley.

Shamiul Joarder of FOA said 'We have had an amazing response from the community for which we are extremely grateful. Lots of people who hadn't heard our message over the last four years have this year; and that is thanks to our brilliant volunteers who have been putting up posters in mosques, shops and community centres, distributing leaflets after prayers outside mosques as well as spreading the message on social media.'

Abu Huraira said, "The Prophet said, 'A prayer performed in congregation is twenty-five times more superior in reward to a prayer performed by a single person. The angels of the night and the angels of the day are assembled at the time of the Fajr (Morning) prayer." Abu Huraira added, "If you wish, you can recite: 'Verily! The recitation of the Qur'an in the early dawn (Morning prayer) is ever witnessed (attended by the angels of the day and the night).' (17.78)

Typhoon Haiyan is one of the most devastating natural disasters to have hit the Philippines, leaving in its wake an estimated 10,000 dead and millions injured and displaced. One of the most powerful storms ever recorded, Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) struck the Philippines on 8th - 9th November 2013. Its 200 mph winds flattened buildings, wrecked transport, cut off power supplies and turned once-thriving communities into debris.

According to UN agencies:

  • 9.5 million people have been affected in nine regions across the Philippines
  • More than 618,000 people have been displaced
  • 1,458 evacuation centres have been set up
  • Unicef estimates the number of children affected is 4 million
Islamic Help has launched an emergency appeal to help those suffering as they struggle to rebuild their lives in the aftermath of Haiyan. It is critical that they receive food, water, emergency shelter and medical help immediately as they battle for survival.
