A Birmingham mosque has successfully collected donations to fill two shipping containers to help Turkey and Syria quake victims, praising community members for their generous response to the call.


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)

Launching the appeal, Birmingham Central Mosque is working alongside Ummah Care Foundation to deliver the donations.
