Gaza War

In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful


Gaza Appeal


On 14th November 2012, another assault by occupiers began on Palestinians in Gaza. Aerial bombings are pounding residential areas across Gaza once more. To date 20 Palestinians have been martyred and scores injured.

Today's attack on Muslims in Gaza is merely symptom of a wider oppression that has taken place on our Palestinian brethren for decades. 80% of Gazans are in fact refugees who were expelled from lands that are now launching pads for assaults against them.

'Allah will aid a servant of His so long as the servant aids his brother.'
- Sahih Muslim

Ummah Welfare Trust has an established base in Gaza from where it has administered relief efforts for many years alhamdulillah. The charity currently looks after orphans, sponsors students to become Huffadh of the Qur'an, installs generators in schools and hospitals and transports desalinated water to refugee camps.

The charity is now urgently appealing for donations which will be used to provide emergency food, shelters and medical supplies. Please open your hearts and give generously inshaAllah.

Ummah Welfare Trust encourages everyone to beseech Allah, Glory be to Him, to help our brothers and sisters in Bilaad ash-Shaam. Certainly victory is from Allah and victory is but an hour of patience.

'Know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and ease with hardship.'
- Sunan at-Tirmidhi

The Islamic Ruling on The Peace Process



[And indeed, there is among them a party who alter the Scripture with their tongues so you may think it is from the Scripture, but it is not from the Scripture. And they say, "This is from Allah," but it is not from Allah. And they speak untruth about Allah while they know.] Ali-Imran 3/78

Gaza: Beneath the Bombs



The Israeli offensive in Gaza was described by Amnesty international as '22 days of death and destruction'. Sharyn Lock's eyewitness account brings home the horror of life in Gaza beneath the bombs. Sharyn went to the Gaza strip with the Free Gaza Movement, thinking the greatest danger she faced was making it past the Israeli sea blockade in a fishing boat, but soon after her arrival Israel attacked Gaza's 1.5 million inhabitants by land, air and sea. With others from the International Solidarity Movement, Sharyn volunteered with Palestinian ambulances, assisting them as they faced overwhelming civilian casualties. Her candid and dramatic blogs from Gaza gave the world an insight into the conflict that the mainstream media - unable to enter Gaza - couldn't provide. Gaza: Beneath the Bombs provides a view of Gaza difficult to glimpse from outside - of a people who face their oppression not only with courage but with humour.

Hamas has been listed as a terrorist organization by most western powers. Yet despite this Hamas has grown in strength and popular support amongst Palestinians. This documentary investigates the men and women behind the mask.
