On Friday 27th November after Isha time, someone tried to burn the Mosque by throwing a Molotov bottle. Alhamdulillah it did not explode and no one got hurt and no damage was done. We contacted the police this morning and they have sealed the Mosque and are investigating the incident. We have expressed our deepest concerns to the police and hope they will take this attack very seriously. We hope they find out who is behind this grave incident and catch the perpetrators. We would like to assure our community in Islington that such crime has no place within our society and we are determined more than ever to promote community cohesion and harmony.
Jeremy Corbyn, Leader of the Labour Party, Richard Watts, Leader of Islington council & Cllr Asima Shaikh visited Finsbury Park Mosque today Friday 20th of November, and addressed the large congregation who had gathered to perform Friday prayers.
The message delivered by Mr. Corbyn was powerful and unequivocal, in that at a time when the atrocious crimes committed in Paris were on everyone's mind, Muslims in Britain were neither responsible nor should they be treated any differently from any member of British society as a result.
Mr. Corbyn reiterated his admiration and respect to the Muslim community for its longstanding commitment to British society's multi-cultural and multi-faith principles, demonstrated brilliantly in the manner in which Finsbury Park Mosque was transformed by the local Muslim community from being a place of trouble, to being an award winning model of community cohesion and a beacon of inspiration to all other Mosques and Islamic centres.
** Press Release
18th November 2015
Today the Muslim Council of Britain took out an advert in the national press to
underscore the united condemnation Muslims have of terrorism, especially after the
Paris attacks last Friday.
Dr Shuja Shafi, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain said "The advert
aims to highlight how Muslims everywhere have consistently and without reservation
spoken out against terror. It is important that our fellow Britons hear this message
loudly and clearly".
The advert states 'The barbaric acts of Daesh (or ISIS, as they are sometimes known)
have no sanction in the religion of Islam, which forbids terrorism and the targeting
of innocents.' It adds ‘The aim of attacks like those inflicted on Paris and other
cities across the world is to turn communities against each other. As Muslims,
Britons and Europeans, we must stand together to make sure they do not succeed.’
The advert was organised by the Muslim Council of Britain and signed off by more
Today many of us woke up to the news of what is a horrific crime against innocent lives in Paris. Such barbaric attacks, committed in the name of our religion is unjustifiable.

(Quran 5:32) This also means, whoever kills a life it is as if he has killed the whole humanity!
We, the Islamic centres in UK, strongly condemn the killing of innocent lives and strongly oppose the usage of ...
