    Important Gathering

    The Street Iftar Party was first organized in June 2017, days after British-born terrorist Darren Osborne hired a van and drove it into a group of Muslims who had just finished their prayers at Finsbury Park mosque.

    Osborne, who had vowed to ‘kill all Muslims,’ murdered one man, Makram Ali, a 51-year-old grandfather, while injuring twelve others.

    “The Finsbury Park street iftar, hosted by Finsbury Park Mosque, marks a significant time for the Muslim community in my constituency and across the country, as well as those around the world,” Jeremy Corbyn MP told attendants.

    “The holy month of Ramadan is a time of harmony, reflection, growth and helping those most in need, and I look forward to once again joining this wonderful occasion and renewing our commitment to bringing about a world of peace and justice.”

    To date, Islamic Relief UK, Finsbury Park Mosque and The Muslim Welfare House have respectively served the local community in various projects including food distributions, fundraising activities and youth services to support individuals through the rising cost of living and impacts of the pandemic.

    “We are delighted to be sharing our Iftar/meal with our neighbors and communities this Ramadan again after a long lockdown,” Toufik Kacim, CEO of Muslim Welfare House said.

    “Let us celebrate our spirit of joy and happiness with faith and non-faith communities in this precious moment of Ramadan 2022.”
