Yasmin Mogahed spoke; you sponsored orphans
We teamed up with the inspirational Yasmin Mogahed once again this month for a short tour with a massive impact.
In partnership with our friends at Al-Buruj Press we fundraised at Yasmin Mogahed’s events in Glasgow, Nottingham, Bradford, Manchester and London, all in aid of our Hifz Orphan campaign.
Audiences were so generous, with enough in donations and commitments for 479 orphan sponsorships and four orphan homes.
It was an honour to work with Yasmin Mogahed for the second year running, and her talks on love and faith were incredibly interesting and fascinating.
You can support an orphan to become hafiz of the Holy Qur’an for just 70p a day! Call 03000 11 11 11 to start your Hifz Orphan sponsorship and give a vulnerable child this blessed opportunity.

Super funny Muslims raise smiles and help the needy
We visited 12 locations, bringing smiles to the faces of thousands of people up and down the country.
Omar Regan, Baba Ali, Moses the Comic and the rest of the super funny Muslims had everyone laughing out of their seats.
As well as raising smiles we raised a staggering £500,000 to help refugees and orphans.
This means 4,776 refugee families will be supported with urgent aid such as food, hygiene items, sleeping bags and shelter. And 474 orphan sponsorships were created during the tour, which will give vulnerable children the love and care they need to thrive.
Comedian Omar Regan said: “It was the best comedy tour ever! The British people are so generous and we had so much halal fun each night.”
Check out our photo albums over on Facebook to see how your smiles can light up lives.

#TeamOrange runners raise over £6k for refugees
Dozens of our very own #TeamOrange athletes took on a 10k race at the end of October, raising money to help refugees.
Fundraisers in Bradford laced up their running shoes for the event on Sunday 25th as part of our Run For Their Lives challenge.
They raised over £6,000 in sponsorship and donations, which will go on to help refugees arriving in Europe from places like Syria, where their lives have been torn apart by conflict.
Khalil Benkhalil, Challenges Manager, said: “It was amazing to see so many people running, jogging and walking the events – the streets were awash with orange!
“The money we raised will go a long way towards helping refugees on their journeys towards safer lives, but there is still so much more we can do to help.”
Donate now to provide refugees with warm clothes, nutritious food and essential hygiene items, call 03000 11 11 11.
Join #TeamOrange to take part in future challenges. You could join us to climb mountains, jump out of planes, run marathons and more!

This Muharram, build a well in the name of the Prophet’s (saw) family
Muharram is a blessed month, during which you can gain extra rewards for your good deeds.
The Prophet (saw) taught us that water is the best charity to provide, so what better way to commemorate his life and mark this special month than building a well?
It costs just £300 to build a well and give people clean water to safely drink, wash, cook and clean, make wudu, and water crops and hydrate animals.
Build a well this Muharram in the name of the Prophet (saw), Fatimah (as), Hazrat Ali (as), Imam Hussan (as) or Imam Hussain (as). Call 03000 11 11 11 or set up a Direct Debit online now and build a well in monthly instalments of just £25.

Run For Their Lives this October
Our #TeamOrange volunteers are once again stepping up to help those in need. In fact, they’ll be taking several thousand steps!
This October they will be embarking on a special Run For Their Lives challenge to raise money for Syrian refugees.
Fundraisers will be lacing up their running shoes to take part in one of two runs – a 10k in Bradford or a half marathon in Luton.
Pounding the streets is not just for professional athletes – even those with little running experience can get involved – but places are limited so sign up now!
The money raised will be used to provide those fleeing their homes with essentials such as food, shelter and medical supplies, and by raising £100 in sponsorship every runner will make a big difference.
