A group of 70 Muslim scouts will walk from mosque to mosque in Redbridge, East London, on Saturday, May 27, to raise money for Islamic Relief appeal to help Turkey/Syria earthquake victims.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

“All the scouts taking part in the walk are literally taking positive steps within our community to help raise thousands of pounds for people in need,” said Shabana Shaukat, Scout Leader of 7th Goodmayes group, Islamic Relief reported in a statement.

“I am truly humbled and inspired by the impact of the collective fundraising efforts of the group.”
