Jabir reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The believer is kind and gracious, for there is no goodness in one who is neither kind nor gracious. The best of people are those who are most beneficial to people.” (Al-Albani)

On the basis of the Hadith, Cheadle Mosque is working on a project for us to help our youth – (aged 16 – 21 years) to achieve their full potential. Our aim is to help our young people to gain career guidance and mentoring directly from those who have already established themselves in their careers.

The project will also involve workshops on work ethic in Islam, confidence building, and other softer skills to ensure our youth are supported and confident in whatever profession they choose to pursue.

We are therefore seeking experienced mentors (brothers & sisters) from a range of professions to assist us in ensuring our youth are given valuable and accurate career guidance, and the opportunity to ask the questions and gain an understanding of what the role involves, but also the skills and attributes required to be successful in the role.

For our mentors, this is undoubtedly an opportunity to benefit others – your time will no doubt count as Sadaqah Jariyah in developing the future of our young people – you will undoubtedly be helping the community progress and develop.

The project won’t take much of your time (a maximum of one meeting every quarter at CMA) and for those volunteers we have, they feel this a simple of giving something back to the community.

Your information will be held securely and we of course won’t share any personal contact information – there will be no Spam emails.

If you are interested in being a mentor, and developing our future leaders, please do let us know, you can complete your details online by completing the “Mentor form” available from our website (Media tab then Downloads) and emailing the form directly to us or by enquiring at the Mosque Office.

Guidance around being a mentor is also available from “Downloads.”

We really appreciate your help.

Jazaka’Allah Khairan.
