Over the Black Friday week from this Friday 20th November to 30 November2020 please do nominate ‘’The Khoja Shia Ithnaasheri Muslim Community Of London’’ as your charity of choice so you donate 0.5% of your purchases free of any cost to you.
This is a great way to support towards Hujjat Jamaat’s general fund, as you spend for your loved ones during this period and in future.
To do so please log in to smile.amazon.co.uk and select ‘’The Khoja Shia Ithnaasheri Muslim Community Of London’’ as your preferred charity.
As you may all be aware, due to the recent rains and the consequent flooding, our Hujjat centre has been significantly damaged.
Alhamdullilah, we have secured funds from our insurance company to undertake immediate repair works.
To allow the contractors to carry out the various repairs, we must close the centre for a period of time. During this time, no activity will be permitted in the main building. However, the burial service will continue as normal.
We will InshaAllah keep you updated during the different phases of work and we pray for a successful completion. Measures to safely re-open the centre, subject to government COVID-19 guidelines, are currently being discussed by the EC.
We will continue to broadcast a diverse array of programmes on our Hujjat YouTube channels. Programme details can be found on the Hujjat Website.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to welcoming everyone back to centre as soon as possible.
With Salaams and Duas

Be Safe, Keep others safe
As a largely African Asian based community, we are in one of highest risk groups in the country to be severely affected by Covid-19, a silent virus that can spread between people without their knowledge. In particular, over 60’s or those with underlying medical conditions are at higher risk. As such, we would like to remind everyone to ensure we reduce the risk of being infected or infect others with our interactions and activities.
Please Wear a mask at all times and Avoid the “Three Cs”
Closed Spaces with poor ventilation
Crowded places with many people nearby
Close-contact settings such as close-range conversations or recitations.
If you develop symptoms of the virus (a new continuous cough, fever or loss of taste or sense of smell), please immediately self-isolate and book a free test online or call 119 – people who fail to self-isolate may face a fine of up to £10,000.
Please join us in praying for the Shifa for all those who have tested positive for Covid in our community and recite Surah Al-Fateha for all Marhumeen who have lost their lives due to Covid.
