Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 11

LMS’s Support to the Vulnerable during Lockdown – A Summary

LMS has been at the forefront supporting the community during this unprecedented difficult time right from the beginning. This update provides a brief summary and an insight into the activities carried out by LMS to support the community.

The Initiative

In March 2020, following the announcement of the lock-down, a dedicated team of LMS volunteers compiled a list of the community member’s contact details, especially the Mosque’s regular elders, and carried out mass phone calls to reassure the members that even though the Mosque is shut, it is still within reach. The calls were well received and highly appreciated at this time of uncertainty and communication breakdown due to the lock down. This exercise enabled the team to assess the needs of the community especially the elders and the disadvantaged. Thus, LMS was able to provide emotional support, secure medications, provide hot meals and food parcels. The Initiative which started with check-up phone calls, quickly grew to a large-scale community-wide support. Funds were secured, and LMS was able to join forces with other local organisations in supporting the wider community.


Statistics

To date LMS has helped to ease the hardship of 330 people (200 adults and 134 children). In partnership with the Merseyside Somali Community and Association, the project has facilitated the delivery of about 400 hot meals to people unable to prepare their own meals due to either physical or mental issues. Up to 310 of dry and fresh food parcels of varying sizes were delivered to; elders, families, single mothers, asylum seekers, house-bound high-risk individuals, laid-off due to Covid-19 individuals and the homeless. In this period, LMS helping hands has extended as far as Knowsley, the Wirral and North Wales.

 

 


Acknowledgment

The project has been a massive success and was warmly welcomed by everyone in the community. It has touched the hearts of many members of the community at different levels during this darkest time.

LMS received referrals from organisations such as; Refugee Women Connect, Councillors, local GP Consortium, Wirral Change, Community members, Al Ghazali Centre, the Arabic Centre, TAC and Liverpool Muslim Outreach Society.

This project is funded by LMS’s Zakat fund, generous grants from Steve Morgan Foundation, Community Foundation for Merseyside, P.H Holt and Tesco Bags of Help. The project is also supported by local businesses such as SPENDWELL, KO and MAMOS and charity organisations such as Merseyside Somali Community and Association and Wirral Dean Centre. The Wirral Dean Centre’s collaboration in supporting the families across the water is highly appreciated.

Without the financial support, referrals cooperation, collaboration and dedication, this would never have happened, Therefore, LMS would like to take this opportunity to thank all the organisations and individuals involved in the project and the dedicated volunteers for their continued support.

Mosque Ramadan Activities in a Lockdown – A Unique Ramadan

The month started with many people feeling down that the mosques are closed. Soon after that, we all realised that this pandemic has so many benefits. With hardship comes a lot of ease. From the midst of this corona, the Liverpool Ramadan Program was born. Owned by the youth and for people from different ages. With daily programs; from lectures to online Quran circles to Kahoot quizzes and Quran competition. Presenters were from different professional and cultural backgrounds. The host team (mostly aged 16-20) excelled and grew in confidence; they gained so many skills in ONE month. Ramadan has been a training course for our young generation. Special guests were generous in contributing to this program with special thanks to Anas Altikriti and Omer El-Hamdoon. Local doctors and professors also shared their expertise.

Sisters were present with the women lectures and reminders.

Alhamdulilah, this program has been a true success story, a proof that with unity, great things happen. The program has brought the Ramadan and mosque vibes into every single home, all through zoom and youtube.

This was completed with an e-party! Yes a party through zoom (watch the youtube below). Enjoy the clips 🙂

 

Ramadan Timetable – A statement by a group of Liverpool’s Sheikhs

iMAMS STATMENT ON Ramadan Timetable

As we have received a number of inquiries and complaints from our community members, we have requested from the Imams to issue a statement to explain the reason behind the change of Imask time in this Ramadan Timetable. Below is the full statement in English and Arabic.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Date: 27/04/2020

A statement by a group of Liverpool’s Sheikhs

Allah the Almighty said: “We did not send Messengers before you (O Muhammad), any, but men to whom We revealed. So (O people), ask those who have special knowledge, if you do not know”.

This is a statement relating to the inquiries raised by some of the brothers and sisters about the issue of Imsakiyah in the month of Ramadan and the start of the Fajr time, which was recently adopted in the city of Liverpool for the year 2020.

A group of the Sheikhs and Imams of Liverpool met to consider what was presented by some of the brothers and sisters regarding the validity of the prayer times. These prayer times were approved by the mosques of the city of Liverpool in a unified Ramadan timetable, especially the time of Imsak and Fajr. The Sheikhs in the meeting agreed the following:

Firstly:

The issue of scheduling prayer times is a purely specialised issue that only a specialist with knowledge can do.

Secondly:

The timing that has been adopted is issued by a globally approved legal and scientific reference, which is the timing of Umm Al-Qura, which is adopted in the Two Holy Mosques in Makkah and Madinah, and many countries of the Islamic world, and commended by specialised Muslim astronomers in the United Kingdom.

Thirdly:

Fajr prayer will take place 10 minutes after Imsak time due to precautionary measures.

Fourthly:

The timing of Imsak cannot be tampered with. If the Imsak time is known according to a reliable reference as in this case, and is violated, validity of fasting could be undermined according to Islamic Sharia.

بيان صادر عن مجموعة من مشائخ مدينة ليفربول

قال تعالى ” وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ إِلَّا رِجَالًا نُّوحِي إِلَيْهِمْ ۚ فَاسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِن كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ ” النحل 43

بيان حول استفسار بعض الاخوة عن مسألة الامساك في شهر رمضان ودخول وقت الفجر والذي تم اعتماده مؤخرا في مدينة ليفربول للعام 1441 ه فنقول في هذا ومن الله التوفيق .

الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على المبعوث رحمة للعالمين سيدنا محمد وعلى اله وصحبه اجمعين وبعد:

فقد اجتمعت مجموعة من مشايخ مدينة ليفربول للنظر فيما تم عرضه من قبل بعض الاخوة السائلين عن مدى صحة مواقيت الصلوات التي اقرت من قبل مساجد مدينة ليفربول وتحديدا وقت الامساك ودخول الفجر، فقد اجمع المجتمعون من المشايخ على الاتي وفيما يلي توضيح على ما اتفق عليه:

اولا:

 ان مسالة وضع جدول بمواقيت الصلاة هي مسالة تخصصية بحتة لايقوم بها الا مختص عالم بمداخلها وخصوصيتها .

ثانيا:

ان التوقيت الذي تم اعتماده صادر عن مرجعية شرعية وعلمية معتمدة عالميا وهي توقيت ام القرى المعتمد في الحرمين المكي والمدني الشريفين وكثير من دول العالم الاسلامي، وهو ما اكد عليه علماء فلك مسلمون مختصون في المملكة المتحدة .

ثالثا:

ان صلاة الفجر تكون بعد الامساك ب “10” دقائق وذلك لاعتبارات احتياطية.

رابعا:

ان توقيت الامساك لايمكن التلاعب به، فاذا علم وقته بموجب مرجعية يعتد بها كما هو حاصل فيما تقدم وتم مخالفته من الصائم فقد وقع في الحرج الشرعي.

ومن الله التوفيق والسداد

والسلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
