Ramadan 2020/1441: Ramadan Giving Day 26 – Al Ishara BSL Quran

Our Ramadan Giving series highlights the amazing work charities are doing and showcases their special Ramadan campaigns, giving us all the opportunity to support, donate and do a little good insh’Allah.

Ramadan Giving Day 26: Al Ishara BSL Quran
Al-Isharah was established in March 2008 as a deaf services provider whose focus is to provide education, overall inclusion and equality through a number of services. They serve a socially excluded disabled minority group who are less likely to be financially independent, be in isolation and are more likely to develop mental health problems. The amazing services they offer include:
  • Every Friday, sermon interpretation is executed live from the first floor of the London Muslim Centre.
  • free Islamic classes
  • The Al Isharah Islamic School (AIS) offers deaf and hard of hearing children the opportunity to learn about Islam
  • Deaf club to allow socialising
  • A deaf marriage service
  • Umrah and Hajj catered for Deaf Muslims

They are also trying to develop the first ever British Sign Language Quran, with a dedicated translation team that comprises of BSL linguists, interpreters, scholars, Arabic linguists and a focus group, whose focus is to translate the Quran from Arabic to BSL.

O you who have believed, spend from that which We have provided for you ~ Quran 2:254

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas: “The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) was the most generous person, and he used to become more so (generous) particularly in the month of Ramadan…more generous than the fast wind in doing good” (Bukhari).

The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

"Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned." ~ Quran 2:245

Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: "The best of people are those that bring most benefit to the rest of mankind." (Daraqutni)
