Project Updates

A meeting concerning the Janazah Project was held at: 82 Akeman Street Community Rooms in Cambridge on Sunday, 13th January 2008 starting from 2.30 PM.

All are Welcome


Further to the meeting yesterday, it was decided by everyone that the Janazah Project will henceforth fall under the remit and ethos of a newly formed committee namely:

CMBA - Cambridge Muslim Burial Assosciation

A cross section of muslims from across Cambridge are representative and several people were nominated and picked, to carry out different tasks that are required to make this Assosciation workable and operational. Each task allocation is on a four week deadline!

From Allah we come, to Allah we return. It is a right over the living from the dead to receive a dignified burial. This is known as "Fard Kifaya" ~ Performing the rites of the dead by some absolves the entire community, failure constitutes a failure on the entire community and will be questionable on the day of judgement.

If you are interested in participating in this noble cause, please ring or email the following:

Abdul Shakur ~ 07766767629 :

Imtiaz Ahmed Din ~ 07861144682 :

"Allah said every soul will taste death", therefore preparing for it is obligatory for all...


Several attendees were given tasks to complete on a four week dealine
