Born to Die. What's Your Legacy?

You are alone in your grave, nothing except your good deeds can help you now, and more importantly the legacy you’ve left behind. Those of your righteous sons and daughters, friends and family who remember to make dua for you after you die, will indeed, be a light for you in your grave. Leaving a legacy for yourself is often overlooked – we are too occupied with our busy lives – to think about what we will leave behind, and how it will benefit us in the Hereafter. Making a difference to the lives of others, relieving the suffering of even one person, raising righteous children or leaving behind the knowledge that benefits people; those are legacies we should all be leaving behind. For surely, we will be questioned by Allah on the Day of Judgement – what did you do with your time? Want to know how you can leave the best legacy behind? Then join us for an unmissable event with Shaykh Yasir Qadhi, who will explain the fundamentals of leaving behind a legacy that will bear fruit for years to come. Topics Include: • Raising good children • Increasing your knowledge & imaan • How to give more in charity • The Prophet’s Legacy Limited Tickets! Tickets are £5 only with all proceeds going towards the Mosque. You can buy your it from this link here: https://born-legacy.eventbrite.co.uk or alternative buy it from the Mosque reception.

ANGRY WHITE PEOPLE: Coming Face to Face with the British Far Right

Order tickets via Eventbrite: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/angry-white-people-coming-face-to-face-with-the-british-far-right-tickets-22464903130?aff=efbevent “Invasion”. “Threat to Western civilisation”. “Islamic Republic”. These are words frequently banded about by some politicians and sections of the media to describe war-fleeing asylum seekers, vulnerable refugees and Muslim communities across Europe. But it is the muscle of a minority in the white working-class that racist ideologists have depended upon, to put racism on the street. So who are those angry white men and women rallying around far right causes? What has driven them to think and act the way they do? Angry White People is an attempt to understand what lies behind people’s anger and hatred. It documents how individuals from decaying working-class communities are drawn into the politics of despair. It shows how a variety of migrant and ethnic minority communities cope with and resist racism.
