We are grateful to Allah subhana wa ta’ala as we approach Ramadan in these extraordinary times. We are all preoccupied by the coronavirus crisis – which we cannot easily see an end to. As stressful as this is, we need to remember that Allah subhana wa ta’ala promises us that he will never test us beyond our ability. We have an opportunity to reflect, realign ourselves with our spirituality and reimagine a better and more just future for all.

Let us think how we can move forward with hope.

We all experience the impact of crises more acutely due to the increasing levels of social injustice.

Imagine then what it must be like in places like Gaza or Kashmir or a refugee camp in Lesvos or Bangladesh. Imagine what it must be like right now, to be imprisoned for your faith and beliefs.

It can seem that the odds and the unjust are against us but in this special month, where we come closer to Allah and His unimaginable compassion, mercy and power, we can see the examples of history in the Battle of Badr in the ayah above [Quran 8:9].

We need to feel this spirit and rely on Allah and stand up to protect the community at large, guiding our society to be a better, more just and more moral society than now.

Below you will find a list of things that IHRC can provide to support you at this difficult time including advice about your work, and lesson plans and resources for educating your children at home.  There are also some suggestions as to how you can continue to help the oppressed during this period of full and or semi-isolation and quarantine wherever you are in the world.

You can find our annual report in PDF form here.

There is so much we can all still do. Please share your time, dua and wealth in whatever measure you can with us. You can donate to IHRC’s work online via our dedicated donate pages or send us a cheque to RTSH-AUSJ-ELZH, Islamic Human Rights Commission, PO BOX 598, Wembley, HA9 7XH, UK. If you want to donate via bank transfer please email info@ihrc.org.

May Allah swt reward you all. Ameen.

Massoud Shadjareh
