UK Islamic Mission
The UKIM is one of the oldest nation-wide Islamic organization in the UK. It was founded in October 1962 on the initiative of a small group of Muslims who used to meet at the East London Mosque in a study circle. They discussed the need of forming an organization in Britain to convey the message of Islam in the West. Today, from this small beginning, the UKIM has expanded to about forty-five branches and circles in the UK and around thirty mosques and Madaris. The activities, which the UKIM is involved in, are diverse, from building new mosques, relief work, to Dawah on the Internet and youth work.
Thus, the UKIM is not only an organization trying to serve the Muslim community, but it is also an ideological movement, It aims to mould the entire human life according to Allah’s revealed Guidance, following the life example of His last Messenger, Mohammed (peace and blessings of Allah he upon him).
The efforts of the UK Islamic Mission (UKIM) are motivated by deep insights gained from the Glorious Quran and the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet, Muhammad (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and are built on the hard lessons learnt from Muslim history. This noble struggle, to which you are being invited, is for exciting efforts to Inspire, prepare and enable the Muslim community to live by Islam in individual and collective life, and for sharing its message and mission with the wider British public. This is only through sincere and dedicated efforts in this direction that we can, with the help of Allah, ensure a brighter future for the Muslim community in the UK, and for the British society as a whole, to be saved from the pernicious effects of materialism and secularism
