Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: “The believers, in their love, mercy and compassion for each other, are like a single body; if one part of it feels pain, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever.” [Bukhari]

A believing heart cannot help but feel love, mercy and compassion towards others. However, these emotions need to be shown through both our actions and words, or they will fade away from our hearts.

Join Islamic Relief and Imam Khalid Latif for this series of fundraising dinners where we will explore these qualities in the context of this hadith and understand what expressing love, mercy and compassion for others requires from us as believers.

In addition to offering inspiring Islamic insights, Imam Khalid will also be delivering a personal account of what his own experiences in Myanmar in helping with the delivery of Islamic Relief aid. After witnessing the tragedy for himself, he now has a responsibility to share the brave yet heartbreaking real-life experiences of the people he met on the ground.

So get your tickets now for this inspiring event which we hope will become instrumental in preparing you spiritually for the blessed month of Ramadan insha’Allah!
