Another successful food distribution took place in Liberia, West Africa. The distribution took place over a few days starting from 11th June 2017 in the month of Ramadhan 1438. Funds were raised in the UK by COM while the distribution was headed by brother Ibrahim of COM Ghana, West Africa.
This humanitarian work was hampered slightly by heavy rain but Ibrahim and his helpers persevered and eventually completed their task. Many food packages were distributed amongst residents in different parts of Monrovia, the capital of Liberia.
Many of the Muslims in Liberia are very poor and deprived. Unemployment is rife and large numbers of families are virtually homeless displaced by years of war. Many of the recipients were widows and orphans who were extremely grateful for the food donations. COM visted some areas where the poor and needy had never experienced aid before and were very glad to receive food to break their fast in Ramadhan.
The situation in Liberia is bad and although many people benefited this Ramadhan, after Ramadhan they will be hungry again, so please continue to give.
Let’s Not Forget The Ummah This Ramadhan.

We have printed 20,000 Qurans for Ghana. ‘Interpretation of the meanings of the Noble Quran’ contain both Arabic as well as English text. The translation is by Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al Hilali and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan. It features explainations from Sahih Al Bukhari. The front and back covers are being printed now in India and almost ready for dispatch.
Each book cost £3.00 (cost covers transport, printing and distribution). Inshallah this consignment will be delivered to Tema, Accra (location of our Ghana office) in February 2013 and from there the Qurans will be delivered to different locations throughout Ghana.
The cost of this project have been met but we still need funds for future Quran distribution.
As part of this consignment, we plan to include Islamic Dawah literature as well as French tranlated Qurans for neighbouring countries. After visiting Ghana recently, Maulana Ebrahim saw first hand how much the locals are crying out for knowledge. Please donate English books and literature for dawah. Please donate lillah by phoning CoM on 0116 276 3344 or use this website to make a donation using your bank/ credit card.
We need donations now for the added literature.
PLEASE DONATE NOW.
