ABA is a community who come together every month to collectively contribute to a greater cause in view of working towards our akhira.
ABA started off as a charity WhatsApp group in July 2019 inspired by Shaikh Ali Hammuda. In the group, we post at the beginning and the end of the month to encourage everyone to raise money for a different cause each month that we choose according to the times. By the Mercy of Allah, we raised just under £2000 just between 8 people near the beginning of our venture!
About the project
Discussion with a number of converts to Islam from around the UK in 1993, led to the realisation that not enough was being done to identify needs and provide support for those interested in and new to Islam. As a result, the Islamic Foundation took the lead and formed the New Muslim Project.
Over the years the Project has tried to meet the social and educational needs of New Muslims by providing a wide variety of services.
How will your donation help?
The Project organises several weekly and fortnightly residential Qur’anic Arabic and Islamic Studies courses at various levels which help in improving the reading and comprehension of the Holy Qur’an.
Trips are organised for performing the pilgrimage, both Umrah and Hajj, as well as arranging visits to Muslim countries for their historical and spiritual impact.
The New Muslim Project also fulfils a recognised role in advice, support and counselling New Muslims to help them through their early testing times. The latest addition to the Project’s expanding services is its interactive website.
The support and help required
Converts often require support – social, emotional and educational – to help make their lives as British Muslims stable and productive. They need appropriate training support as well as facilities to overcome language and cultural barriers. This Project provides new Muslims a place to interact with each other and interface with the wider Muslim community and conducts research into conversion and also provides educational and social programmes, local contacts, resource materials and telephone and online support and advice.
“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He wills. And Allaah is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.”
