The Great Big Green Week Friday Khutbah Template

The Great Big Green Week Friday Khutbah Template

The British Board of Scholars & Imams has joined a coalition of Muslim organisations and charities to highlight the growing problem of climate change. As a often over-looked area, climate change and care for the environment is essential as we move forward to protect our world and particularly for those already living in poverty and vulnerable communities. It is a role of the Imams and Scholars to remind and educate the community on this critical issue as viceregents of the Earth. It is for this reason we are encouraging all imams and khateebs to use the Friday sermon to address this important topic. We provide a template of a khutbah for all imams to use as a basis.

Operation Vaccination in Muslim communities

Operation Vaccination in Muslim communities

Flu affects our immune system, making it easier for us to contract other infections, like COVID-19 or pneumonia, and can make other long-term illnesses worse. With Muslim communities having higher mortality rates of COVID-19 than any other faith group, flu threatens to further impact the health of our communities.

Operation Vaccination is a campaign to increase awareness in Muslim communities about the importance of getting the flu vaccination this winter. 

This campaign has the potential to save thousands of lives insha’Allah, as past flu outbreaks have caused between 4,000 to 22,000 deaths in England alone.
