The Jamaat has been proud to support the efforts by charities in Harrow to provide dried/tinned food to those in need across the borough. Members of the community have generously donated 00’s of kgs of food which has been passed on to the council to distribute. This is ongoing, and you can still get involved here.
The Inspirational Minds Nutrition team need your help! We would like to assess the dietary patterns of adults within our community in order to tailor the services we provide to best suit our communities needs.
Therefore, please take five minutes of your time to complete this survey.
We are indeed much more than what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are!

The Jamaat has compiled our first ever business directory, a comprehensive reference made up of approximately 200 businesses owned by members of the community.
Our hope is that when community members need a service or product, they will first refer to a fellow member of the community – the directory contains everything from curtain rail suppliers to osteopaths, and everything in between – so we’re well covered!
You can also download a .pdf version here.
The Jamaat is immensely grateful to Muslim Kanji of Cruxton Travel, who has volunteered his time to help communtiy members who need advice on getting refunds on their flights, hotels and holidays. You can contact Muslim bhai on firstname.lastname@example.org for pro bono advice.
Hujjat Jamaat’s COVID-19 Task Force has been formed, with medical professionals and other members of the community, to assess and review the current health climate and decide on proactive measures we should be taking for the well-being and safety of our members and attendees.
Hujjat has been liaising closely with regional and global partners throughout this process.
After careful deliberation, and with the best interests of our community in mind, both Hujjat and Hyderi jamaats have decided to take the extraordinary step of closing the centres for programmes with immediate effect.
This will not include Hujjat (IMS) Montessori nor funeral activities where further guidance will be issued in due course.
The jamaats will liaise with private function organisers directly.
Hujjat Madressa, hosted off-site, will be issuing it’s own statement. Hujjat Saturday Workshop will be suspended until further notice.
Stanmore Jafferys will continue their activities and adjust as necessary on a case by case basis. They will be issuing a statement in the next 24 hours.
The decision to close the centres is made with an abundance of caution in mind with the most vulnerable in our community prioritised and has not been made lightly.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, thank you for your patience and urge you all to pray for the well-being and safety of all our members and attendees.
Remember events will be live-streamed or broadcast via hujjat.org for you to continue participating remotely.
Best wishes and duas
Hujjat & Hyderi Secretariat
