Story

Assalamu Alaykum!

Thank you for visiting our fundraising page...

Deaf & Blind Muslims are an integral part of the Muslim Community but how many of our brothers and sisters with sensory impairments are actually able to fully access Islamic Education in the UK? There is virtually no inclusive Islamic Education provision for Deaf and Blind Muslims in the UK. Participation of Deaf and Blind Muslims in Islamic Education is limited, but growing...

Utrujj Foundation, Kitaba (Islamic Texts for the Blind), Al-Isharah, Deaf Da'wah and Muslims Deaf UK (MDUK) are pleased to announce a 2-Day Course in Leeds (12th - 13th February 2011) on 'Taqwa & Knowledge', taught by Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ahmed (Islamic Scholar & Director at Kitaba).
