We would like to extend our gratitude and warm wishes to all those who have expressed their support to the Muslim community and Cheadle Mosque following the terrorist attack outside Finsbury Park Mosque last Monday.

Your support and words mean a lot to us - indeed we are one community and we will not be divided. Terrorism is indiscriminate - it has no faith and indeed it can come from many different places. This is all the more reason for us to be united and to never allow those who promote hate to break us.

God Bless you all and May God keep us close.

A special blessing to the lovely neighbours who brought flowers and cards to the Mosque.

You have made our day!

*PRESS RELEASE*

Terrorist Attacks Muslim Worshippers

The terrorist attack targeting Muslims worshippers as they left Mosques last night was a heinous, cowardly and brutal criminal act. It is reported that one Muslim has sadly died and about ten people have been seriously injured.

It is reported that one of the attackers shouted out he wanted to “kill all Muslims”. This is not just a hate crime. This is undoubtedly terrorism. The nature of the attack using a van driven at Muslims - targeting worshippers leaving Mosque after late evening prayers during the month of Ramadan - suggests it was preplanned and premeditated to cause the greatest loss of innocent life.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families in this difficult time and Mosques will be offering prayers for the victims.

As always we express our support for our emergency services and the police who serve on the frontline.

Terrorism aims to divide communities and attempts to create fear and suspicion. As always we will stand united with one another and not let these criminals divide us. Their twisted ultranationalist and patriotic ideology has no place in any of our communities.

However, this act of terrorism did not come out of a vacuum.
The Muslim communities up and down this country has been unequivocal in our words and actions in showing support to the victims of terrorism and also challenging terrorism irrespective of the perpetrators’ background. However we have sometimes not seen the same level of consistency or seriousness when terrorism is perpetrated by the Far Right and Ultranationalist from some politicians or from sections of the media. We have previously advised and warned successive Governments and the Police to take this threat seriously.

We need to know from the Government and the Police what actions they intend to take to keep Muslims and Mosques safe. We need to know who the perpetrators were and whether they were being monitored. We need to know whether anyone in their community they lived in or place of worship they attended reported them to the police for being involved in terrorism related activity. We need to know what organisations are or were they members of and which marches they attended.

Many will be asking and demanding answers to these and many more questions.

In the wake of recent attacks in Manchester and London we saw and read a daily diatribe of negative and malicious news stories about Muslims and Mosques. We saw those in authority and influence accuse Muslims and Mosques of needing to do more to stop terrorism when Muslims have done a great deal to keep our country safe including individuals reporting those suspected of being involved in terrorism to the police.

Many will now hold accountable senior government officials, journalists, senior police officers and former police officers and all those who disguise themselves under the cloak of countering extremism, who have over the years and in recent weeks stigmatised and demonised Muslims communities and Mosques, for contributing in creating a poisoned atmosphere against Muslims and Mosques and feeding into an ideology of terror and hate against Muslims and Mosques.

Earlier this year, we have previously met with and urged senior police officers in Greater Manchester to step up and increase patrols in and around Mosques. We encourage Mosque officials to work with the local neighbourhood police to increase patrols and to set up security measures around Mosques. We ask everyone to remain vigilant.

The cohesion of our communities is clear, Britain has just celebrated 110,000 “Great Get Together” events over the last couple of days, Mosques have been opening their doors to neighbours sharing food and good times with one another – it is clear that there is so much that unites us and we must all continue to develop these bonds of cohesion.

Qadir Cohan - Chair Manchester Council of Mosques commented, “This was another unprovoked terrorist attack on people going about their daily lives . Our thoughts are first and foremost with the victims and their families. We support the emergency services in their work. The people of Britain have been a great example in uniting and not allowing hate mongers to divide us, we must all continue in this vain.”

Yousef Dar - Stockport Muslims commented, "The tragic event unfortunately shows that some of our media treat terrorism differently depending upon the ethnicity or faith of the perpetrators. This appears to have been a clearly focused attack on Muslims and the manner in which was carried out should indicate it is a terrorist attack. It was disappointing to hear some media outlets term it differently from other similar attacks.”

Imteyaz Ali - Bolton Council Mosques commented, “Whilst we are at the early stages of the investigation, we hope that this matter like all such attacks will be treated as a terrorist attack. We are in the month of Ramadhan, a month of peace and forgiveness, when the vast majority of Muslims are engaged in fasting and prayers. Our thoughts are with the victims, families and the emergency services who are stretched to the limit in dealing with all that has happened.”

Tahir Mahmood, Chair - Rochdale Council of Mosques commented: "We are saddened that yet again terrorists have taken innocent lives on our streets. We must unite in these difficult times to show support for those who have been affected. Our prayers and thoughts are with the victims and their families of these heinous attacks. We trust that the media and politicians will be consistent in their actions and words. "

The Cheadle Mosque Great Get Together!

Wow! What a night we enjoyed at Cheadle Mosque as part of the Great Get Together. The event inspired by the example of the late Jo Cox MP, was to bring people and communities together.

It undoubtedly did that!

We were blessed to have over 140 wonderful people (probably more but we stopped counting!) to join us for Dinner at Dusk and listen to inspiring talks from our unsung heroes.

The environment was so warm and engaging - it was one big party! We were able to break our fast together with traditional dates and water, pray the sunset pray and then enjoy some lovely Moroccan cuisine (and a bit of extra Subway!) together.

What a lovely night - may God bless everyone who attended and contributed to the event - it demonstrated that we are one community - one humanity. Our shared values will always unite us.

We hope to see you again soon God Willing - don't forget the Eid Extravanganza and Open Day on Saturday 9th September.

Zakat for Yemen

www.facebook.com/HumanAppeal.UK/videos/vb.175608624750/10154904589024751/?type=2&theater

I don't often cry, but no one could not feel this father's pain on watching this video on the crisis in Yemen.

To see your child die from cholera - which is essentially a disease that can be prevented through access to clean drinking water - has to be one of the worst things a parent can imagine. Yet this is opening today in 2017.

Yemen has been forgotten by the world - it is up to me and you to remember those that are suffering.
This year Cheadle Mosque's Ramadhan Zakat project aims to do just that In-sha'Allah.....

Please support us so that we can help the :

- 17 million people are in need of food assistance
- 3 million people are internally displaced
- Those that have no access to clean drinking water and a lack of access to medical services

44,000 people have died since the conflict in March 2015.

Please let no further children die from a lack of action - please let each and every one of us do what we can.. please we beg of you donate what you can. Your reward is with your Lord.

You can donate directly to Human Appeal International or through Cheadle Mosque. Account details available through the office or by messaging us.

May Allah(swt) bless you for that you do.
Jazaka'Allah Khairan

Again our hearts are bleeding on hearing about the horrific events in London. We are deeply saddened to learn about the complete loss of innocent life. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families.

These criminal perpetrators are the foulest of people.

The criminals are so despicable that over 130 Imams from around the country have refused to offer the funeral prayer for them stating "This is because such indefensible actions are completely at odds with the lofty teachings of Islam"

They may claim to be Muslim but their actions are 100% against the teachings of Islam - the community is in outrage that they attempt to blacken our faith. We can not forgive them.

Our prayers are with the victims of those in London and the many thousands across the world who have suffered at the hands of such criminals.

You can read below the press release from the various Manchester Councils of Mosques.

Terror Attacks in London and Afghanistan

The latest terror attacks come at a time when we, as communities and a country are just coming to terms with the horrific attack in our city of Manchester two weeks ago. We are appalled that individuals can commit such brutal and horrific acts against innocent people.

The Greater Manchester Muslim Communities like other communities finds itself in a state of shock by the events in the last couple of weeks. In Afghanistan there were 90 people who lost their lives and 450 injured and where the funerals of the victims were also attacked is a reminder that terrorists do not discriminate according to faith or background. Iraq has also seen recent mass murders too.

In London, we saw the latest of these terrorist attacks on the streets of our capital. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families and we pay tribute to our emergency services that were at the forefront of dealing with this tragic incident.

Muslim communities like all communities have and will continue to do its part to keep our country safe. In Greater Manchester we have.
- Organised seminars and conferences to raise awareness about the threats of terrorism be it Far Right or Daesh,
- Our Imam's throughout our region are proactively and continually robustly challenging the terrorist narrative during their speeches,
- Publicly shown solidarity with the victims and their families by issuing press statements to express our condolences, organised vigils and collected funds for the victims and their families,
- Led and been part of protests against wars and terrorism to explain that violence is not the way forward to bring about a peaceful world,
- Organised memorials and tributes to those who have fallen victim of terrorism which have taken place in our Mosques,
- Engaged with those in authority to advise them on effective strategies to keep our country safe including promoting intelligence led policing, and policies which don't allow violence to fester through unregulated spaces whether on the internet or as a result of military actions abroad.

Qadir Chohan - Chair Manchester Council of Mosques commented, “Once again we see the actions of these terrorist attacks here in our capital and abroad in Afghanistan. These actions are of unimaginable and unspeakable cruelty. Our thoughts are first and foremost with the victims and their families. Just as we Mancunians rally to support the victims of the Manchester attacks we will do the same for the victims and the families in the London attack.”

Yousef Dar - Stockport Muslims commented, "The tragic events in Afghanistan and London follow the attacks in our great city of Manchester. These acts are not the acts of normal people, and shows how desperate these attackers are to promote their cause. Our emergency services including police, ambulance and fire service have once again showed their true professionalism in dealing with this incident so swiftly to save many lives.”

Imteyaz Ali - Bolton Council Mosques commented, “It is difficult to fully come to terms with these acts which have come so soon after the Manchester attacks. We are in the month of Ramadhan, a month of peace and forgiveness, when the vast majority of Muslims are engaged in fasting and prayers. These cowardly individuals are hard at work taking innocent lives. They have no sense of compassion or humanity or a belief system which can ever justify these horrible bloody acts of violence. We ask all communities to be extra vigilant over the coming weeks and support our police service with any information that may assist them to prevent any further attacks.”

Tahir Mahmood, Chair - Rochdale Council of Mosques commented: "Muslims in Rochdale are angry, hurt, sickened just like everyone else. Today we remember those murdered on the streets of our capital and all those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan last week. We need to double our efforts against terrorism. Many lives, families and communities have been affected by the actions of these inhumane terrorists who have tried to attack the peace of our country and our world. We must unite in these difficult times to show support for those who have lost loved ones. Our prayers and thoughts are with the victims and their families of these heinous attacks"

It's been an awful couple of weeks, all of us have felt the pain of the atrocity in Manchester and words still escape us on understanding what has happened - but one thing we have all found, is the way communities have come together in standing by each other and supporting one another.

We understand that such a terrorist, such a criminal does not represent any community or faith, he only represents his own evil self. Terrorism has no faith or religion and like murderers before him - his actions escape any reason or understanding.

Of the rollercoaster of emotions we have felt this week, there is one feeling of over-riding solidarity that has encompassed us all, and for that I feel proud to be a Mancunian.

We should remember that this brutal and cowardly act of inhumanity cannot and should not define us or our great city
Nor should we focus on the coldness of that night or the one who shattered lives.

But let us remember how we came together - to comfort each other - to support each other – Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Sikh, people of faith and none - in the name of our God and our service to humanity

· The many taxi drivers taking people home for no charge

· The restaurants and takeaways supplying food for the emergency services

· The doctors and surgeons, police and ambulance crews working through the night for the injured

- The Mosques throughout Manchester and like thousands of others who donated to support the victims and their families.

In the days afterwards we remember the outpouring of an abundance of compassion, solidarity and love from every corner of our community to the families and friends of the victims as well as to each other.

Let us once again see the world through a child's eye - as one family, one united humanity.

Let us work on keeping close to each other, on building bridges with strangers and friends alike.

Let us challenge those who promote division and hate whether here or afar

Let us defeat the idea that violence can achieve anything but destruction.

Let the sea of flowers that adorn St Ann square with messages of solidarity and defiance be our conviction for a better tomorrow.

We love Manchester.

Ramadan Mubarak - FIRST DAY OF FASTING SATURDAY 27th MAY!

We are happy to confirm that the first night of Ramadan will be tonight (Friday 26th May); Isha and Tarawih prayers will commence at 11:10pm Insha'Allah.

The first day of fasting will be on Saturday 27th May.

Parking:

Please can we remind all our brothers and sisters to please ensure they park appropriately when attending the Mosque.

We know that Ramadan is a busy time and parking is at a premium, but we humbly ask that you park correctly and avoid causing any inconvenience to neighbours and other road users.

Additional parking is available at the Lakeland Car park for use for Tarawih only : this car park is situated very near by - if you turn left out of the mosque this car park is 200 yards on the right hand side past the pub and our parking attendant will be on site for security. This car parking is better for those Musaleen that wish to leave early.

If possible, please try and car share with a neighbour, friend or family to reduce traffic and congestion.

By far the majority of the worshippers at the Masjid park very considerately but please may we remind the small minority that do not, that this reflects very badly on the Masjid and the community with one recent incident of poor parking being reported to the police and council which was very disappointing.

We have additional parking attendants and volunteers for Ramadan, please can we ask that you listen to them and park as they suggest. Jazaka'Allah Khairan.

Saturday Iftars and Talks:

Join us for a weekly talk and iftaar for the whole family every Saturday throughout the month of Ramadan.

The first talk/Iftar will take place this Saturday (27th May) at 8:30pm, Sheikh Hamad Ar-Rahman Fahim will be discussing lessons from the life of the Prophet Adam (AS).

Over the last few years these family talks and iftars have proved to be very popular (over 200 attendees) and have also been a great way of getting the community together.

So please join us with your families every Saturday for inspiring reminders and great food Insha'Allah.

We wish you all the best for Ramadan and make du'a it is a path for you to Paradise.

Jazaka'Allah Khairan

Wasalaam

Sad and difficult times..but out of all this pain - we have seen so much good from all people and all communities. We are proud to be Mancunians who are able to stand together to get through this adversity...

May God Bless Manchester.

As part of standing together, Today - on FRIDAY 26th May - many Mosques throughout Greater Manchester will be donating their Friday collections to support the victim's families.

The Mosques in Greater Manchester have always been community focused - whether that is through their Food Banks, Soup Kitchens they organise, Fundraising for some of the poorest and most needy people or supporting the elderly and vulnerable. Islam is about good deeds - about helping others - about caring for others - about loving people.

Please find attached an important press release from the Greater Manchester Mosques.

PRESS RELEASE

GREATER MANCHESTER MOSQUES TO RAISE FUNDS FOR THE VICTIMS AT FRIDAY PRAYERS

Our lives have been rocked by the tragedy that unfolded in Manchester last Monday – we have been left speechless about the devastation that has occurred. However as a multicultural society living in a great city that has faced much adversity over the years, we have come together in the true Mancunian spirit to overcome this adversity.

As we witnessed in the immediate aftermath of this dark period of Manchester, there has been so much light.
Qadir Chohan – the Chair of Manchester Council of Mosques said, “We have seen communities come together, supporting each other and caring for one another. We have seen the Greater Manchester Muslim communities like all communities exemplify this goodness, through :

· The many taxi drivers taking people home for no charge
· And the restaurants and takeaways supplying food for the emergency services
· And the doctors offering their support to hospitals and working through the night for the injured.
· And the donation funds which having been set up by a number of Muslim organizations and charities that have raised over £50,000 for the families of the victims.

Indeed this is what Islam teaches us – to serve others”
The Greater Manchester Muslim communities have always been very active - our Mosques have always been a centre for the whole community -
- supporting food banks,
- raising money for local people in desperate need and those who are living in horrendous conditions abroad,
- organising soup kitchens for the homeless,
- opening up the Mosques to challenge negative stereotypes,
- and supporting the elderly with a safe place they can meet others.

Our support will continue today, at Friday prayers across Greater Manchester, where many Mosques will be donating their Friday collections for the victims of the tragedy, and prayers for the community of Manchester will be delivered from the pulpit. Many mosques continue to support or organise local vigils and thousands of individual Muslims have spoken out against this act of terrorism and been clear that such actions will never be in our name.

Yousef Dar, from Stockport Muslims added “We have always spoken out against terrorism – every Mosque in Manchester has. Whenever atrocities or injustices take place whether abroad or here, whether by groups, regimes, whether by the Far Right or In the name of religion, we must speak out against it, we must challenge it and we must always show solidarity with the victims and the oppressed as we are doing today”
