Liverpool Islamic Centre wishes to provide services to members of the Muslim community and the wider community at large, across a number of fields; marriage, family disputes, religious guidance and cultural issues are at the forefront.
Islamic Calendar Events:
Liverpool Islamic Centre is honoured to commemorate the weekly fest of Friday (Jum’a) by holding Dua Kumail a night before it and by commemorating other Divine Fests during the year like: Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha (Ghurban), Eid Mab’ath and Eid Ghadeer and the birth anniversaries of the holy Prophet of Islam (SAWA) and his progeny (AS).
Numerous events adorn the Islamic calendar: Ramadan; the fasting season, and Muharram are just two of such auspicious and sacred occasions.
Liverpool Islamic Centre commemorates the occasion of the month-long fast of Ramadan by holding gatherings for congregational prayers, recitation of the Holy Quran, giving lectures and providing meals for the devotees to break their daytime fast.
The Family and social affairs department of the Liverpool Islamic Centre is a refuge and reference for the community to seek advice and consideration of their family and social affairs, individually and collectively.
Human beings are social beings and Social interactions need a thoughtful approach if one wishes to keep one’s religious values. Communities have a duty to educate and being educated in the art of communicating with others. A good and healthy relationship between husband and wife can have a huge impact on the upbringing of children who are constantly looking for role models to follow.
The main areas of work of this department are in: solemnization of marriages, family consultation, miscellaneous social affairs, Islamic divorce procedures and responding to many other queries related to the above issues as well as conversion to Islam. We offer an excellent opportunity to gauge the extent of problems or trends in Islamic communities having direct access to real people.
There are several causes that can bring about disputes in a family, among the general causes we can mention: Legislation, Egoism and Ignorance. Unfortunately prompt action in the form of mediation and intervention by a neutral party is often delayed. In this respect Islamic Centres and religious organizations have a very delicate and important duty to perform by providing the professional needed assistance especially for the families of the immigrant community.
