Dear Member,

Assalamu alaikum Warahmatullah

I pray that you and your loved ones are well and enjoying the blessed month of Muharram and the beginning of another Islamic New Year 1441. Our work is extremely challenging at a time when the world is seeing seismic upheaval and a shift towards far right politics of hate and prejudice. Our country is also facing an acute challenge in its social and political make up. We have Brexit that has dominated our political conversations and LGBT education of our children at schools have brought our communities to sharp focus recently. Our work in creating confident Muslim families must continue regardless of the challenges. We will be having exciting conversations around these important topics at the AMM. Further details of the agenda of the day will follow in our next communication.

It is with this back I would like to extend a warm invitation to you and your family and friends to attend this year’s ISB Annual Members Meeting (AMM).

It’s been a really busy and challenging year, with Allah’s blessings and your support and prayers, we have completed two years since the last election AMM. We will update you more fully at the members’ meeting where the Shura, and others, will share some insights and you will gain an overview of the work that has been taking place both locally and nationally this past term. There will of course also be time for feedback from everyone.


In addition we will be holding an election for both the Shura Council and the Chair of Trustees.

If you are unable to attend the AMM but would like to participate in these elections, we are pleased to be able to offer a postal vote. If you would like a postal vote, please register for an access code by emailing [email protected] or by calling 0300 365 1098 and we will send you a ballot paper. Our independent election adjudicator opens all postal votes so your vote must reach our Office Administrator on or before 05h Oct 2019 in order to be counted. 

Coming together is important – not just for those who are active in the organisation or have leadership roles, but for all of our members. It strengthens our ties of friendship and kinship, reminds us of the beauty of our projects and volunteers, and empowers us all to make a change for the better. It is an act of worship; we all come together to remember Him by meeting each other, praying together and discussing the impact of our work on our country and us.

I look forward to seeing you at the AMM!

Wassalamu alaikum,

Ajmal Masroor
