The meal prepared by the volunteers was served to the homeless and those that have fallen on hard times. It was gratefully received by all.
It is worth reflecting on the advice of the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) :
A man asked the Prophet (pbuh) , "What sort of deeds or (what qualities of) Islam are good?" The Prophet (pbuh) replied, 'To feed (the poor) and greet those whom you know and those whom you do not know" (Bukhari) ... See MoreSee Less
Facing Death : Sat 30th April, 630pm at Cheadle Masjid.
We know that death will come to all of us BUT how will we as families cope and manage when our dearest come towards the end of their life?
What is the process of Ghusl? How should we mourn for the departed? What is the procedure of obtaining a death certificate? How do we organise a funeral director and burial?
A death in the family is a very sad and stressful situation - preparing ourselves is important and we ask Allah (swt) to make it easy for us as well as for the departed.
Please join us for a talk which will address these questions - please join us at CMA on Saturday 30th April 630pm (after Asr).

Children's Foodbank Campaign
Children from the CMA weekday school raise money and purchase food for those in need.
Over the last few weeks children at the CMA madrassah have been learning about the importance of charity. In order to put what they have been learning in to practice we set up the children's Foodbank campaign.
Each child was set a target of raising £7 by seeking donations from family members. Once they had raised the money they went with their parents and purchased items for the Foodbank.
The children then brought the food items to the madrassah and handed them over to a local charity called Unity Community. Brother Usman from Unity Community delivered a short talk thanking the children for their donations and explaining how the food will be distributed to those in need. ... See MoreSee Less

We thank Allah (swt) for the blessing of snow today - our youngsters are loving it!
For some members of our community however, it can make getting out and about really difficult...so please if possible check up on your neighbours - make sure they are safe and not in need of help because of the bad weather. This is particularly important for the more elderly residents in our area. If needed, perhaps clear their path or driveway - this small act of kindness will go along way insha'Allah.
“Serve God, and join not any partners with Him; and do good—to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbors who are near, neighbors who are strangers, the companion by your side....." Qur'an 4:36
Indeed this is our duty as Muslims, our neighbours have rights upon us. so please let us take the opportunity of today and look after our neighbours to earn Allah's (swt) blessing.

Life-saving "Defib" comes to Heald Green
BHF and Cheadle Mosque to give cardiac arrest victims
fighting chance of survival
Heald Green in Stockport is to become a community of lifesavers with its public access defibrillator (PAD) and CPR training kit from the British Heart Foundation (BHF). Cheadle Mosque on Wilmslow Road was successful in its application for the potentially lifesaving machine and also received the “Nation of Lifesavers Community Package” from the charity.
The Community Package contains the innovative kit which includes everything needed to learn CPR in half an hour. The Mosque is now planning to run training sessions led by local doctors for the whole community meaning everyone can become potential lifesavers. There will be a number of public sessions – information can be found at the www.cheadlemosque.org. Website, by contacting the Mosque office or through the local councillors.
The defibrillator is a portable device that can be used by a member of the public to help restart the heart when someone has a cardiac arrest. This is when the heart stops pumping blood around the body and they lose conscious almost at once. For every minute that passes without defibrillation and CPR, chances of survival decrease by around ten per cent. So it’s really important that everyone knows both of these vital steps to help someone in an emergency.
Over 30,000 cardiac arrests happen out of hospital in the UK every year but currently less than one in ten survive. The BHF want to create a Nation of Lifesavers in a bid to boost these shocking survival rates.
The charity is campaigning for defibrillators to be made more accessible and recognisable to the public and want all young people to be taught CPR and PAD awareness at school. Since launching the campaign in 2014, at least 350,000 people have joined the Nation of Lifesavers by learning life saving CPR.
Amir Malik from Cheadle Mosque who originally came up with the idea of obtaining a PAD said “We are delighted that this lifesaving package has come to Heald Green. We want everyone to be able to access it as and when needed – so it’s fixed to the outside of the Mosque and is clearly signposted. We are now really keen to get as many people as possible trained in CPR too – our sessions are open to absolutely everyone”
Peter Burns, the lead councillor for the area said “Preservation of life is a basic human right and Cheadle Mosque is serving community needs. The great thing is that this defibrillator is for whole community use; I hope the training sessions in basic life support will be of real value to the whole community of Heald Green. I am hoping that this will be the first of a number of defibrillators in Heald Green."
Judy O’Sullivan, Assistant Programme Director at the BHF, said: “More than 30,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest outside of hospital every year but less than one in ten survive. More people could be saved if more defibrillators were available in public places and if more people felt confident using them and performing CPR. We are delighted that Cheadle Mosque has joined the BHF’s Nation of Lifesavers campaign - by making another defibrillator available in a Heald Green and teaching CPR locally. It could really be the difference between life and death. ”
To date the BHF have helped place over 13,000 life-saving defibrillators in communities around the UK. The BHF asks for a contribution of £400 towards each defibrillator as part of the Community Package. To find out more about defibrillators and how to place one in your organisation or community visit www.bhf.org.uk.

Heald Green Churches Together and Cheadle Mosque had their first interfaith event of the year on Monday 22nd Feb covering the topic of Charity. Generosity plays a huge part in both the Muslim and Christian faiths and speakers from both faith groups addressed a packed audience at Christ Church in Heald Green.
Father Paul Lomas talked about our love of God, this love similarly extends to our family and neighbours and it is this love that drives our desire to be charitable and generous to those around us.
The Muslim perspective of charity can be made clear by the very succinct messages from the Prophet Muhammed (saw) who said: "The believer's shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity." (Tirmidhi)
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) also said: "Every Muslim has to give in charity." The people then asked: "(But what) if someone has nothing to give, what should he do?" The Prophet replied: "He should work with his hands and benefit himself and also give in charity (from what he earns)." The people further asked: "If he cannot find even that?" He replied: "He should help the needy who appeal for help."...... (Bukhari)
Following the excellent speeches from Father Paul Lomas and Salim Sidi-Boumedine, we heard about the audience's personal experiences of charitable work. Peter Burns, a director of the Wellspring spoke about the great work that they do in supporting the homeless in Stockport, through regular meal provision, education and doctor/dentist medical care amongst many other services.
Yasmin Desnavi spoke about Unity Community and their fabulous work in providing regular food drop offs helping those families in Manchester that are struggling to make ends meet.
Faryal Minhas spoke about her very personal experience of working for Humanitarian charities abroad and the real difference such charities make. She spoke also about the important place her faith plays in driving her in this work; indeed it was inspiring to many of us to similarly get involved in such work
Following the talks, there was a chance for discussion over a "cuppa" and biscuits - it was a lovely event and the teams are keen to make this a regular occurrence - highlighting the importance and positive place faith plays in the 21st century as well as emphasising the important similarities we share across the Christian and Muslim faiths.
We thank all those that attended. ... See MoreSee Less
