In response to the fast changing world we live in and concerns about our chidrens’ spiritual and emotional development, we have organised a series of seminars and talks on ‘Resilience in children in challenging times’.
The first in this series is a talk on the new RSE (relationships and sex education) curriculum being introduced into schools.
All adults are welcome to attend, but this talk will be specifically relevant for parents of younger children. It will be led by Dr. Kate Godfrey-Fausett, Shaykh Jaffer Ladak and Dr. Masuma Jaffer.

On the beautiful and blessed occasion of the birth of the Holy Prophet, Darul Qur’an would like to share a reflective poem that explores our responsibility to exemplify and emanate the light and message of Muhammad (S). You can access the link by clicking here
Hujjat are very pleased to be part of the recently-founded Harrow Citizens movement, a branch of the charity Citizens UK.
Volunteers are seeking just two minutes of your time to complete their survey.
Your responses will form part of a proposal which will go to leaders in Harrow as to how the borough should change and which issues should be prioritised. Harrow leaders will be asked to demonstrate how they will tackle their residents’ concerns.
On the occasion of the birth of the Messenger of mercy, Muhammad (S), Darul Qur’an wal Itrah wishes you all a blessed and auspicious day.
‘It is by Allah’s mercy that you are gentle to them; and had you been harsh and hard-hearted, surely they would have scattered from around you. So excuse them, and plead for forgiveness for them, and consult them in the affairs…‘ (Qur’an 3:159)
No doubt, the Holy Prophet (S) was the most compassionate of teachers and guides.
As teachers, parents, nurturers and elders, we all seek to emulate his beautiful character of mercy, by which he inspired even the hardest hearts to accept and love Islam.
Please find below, a powerful poem that captures the essence of an exceptional teacher and guide:
In recent weeks and months, incidents and stories of ‘Islamophobia’ have been voiced more and more frequently. Examples have ranged from simple verbal abuse to more malicious and even violent episodes.
It is difficult to understand the true extent and scope of the problem with merely anecdotal evidence alone. Therefore we ask members of the public to share with us (with the option of anonymity) their stories. This will allow us to collate qualitative evidence and better understand the problem.
We will then consult with the relevant stakeholders to find the appropriate solutions to this growing concern.
The survey is on the left-hand side of the www.hujjat.org site.
Should you have any questions please do email email@example.com. Moreover, if you or a family member/friend have experienced an unpleasant incident and would like to receive support or counsel, please do get in touch.
