Al Barakah Academy has been established to bring about a better understanding and awareness of the teachings of Islam. The Academy endeavours to serve the needs of the Muslim youth and wider community through providing a number of services, some of which are:
- Advice and Guidance: in problems facing community members and youth, on a private and confidential basis
- Publication and Distribution of Islamic Literature: comprising of leaflets and a quarterly magazine
- Regular Youth Programs: addressing youth issues and educating them on Islamic practices
- Weekend Classes: for women
- Q & A: Fiqh and general Islamic related question and answer service - regulated by a board of Ulama
Al Barakah Academy was established in 2009, under the patronage of Shaykh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat Hafizahullah.
We are currently living in an inspiring and challenging age as a Muslim minority in a non-Muslim country. Our youths are finding it increasingly difficult to relate to their parents, elders and in some cases their Deen. It is becoming apparent that even practicing Muslim youth can be easily overwhelmed and led astray by social and peer pressures.
The life of some of our youth are sadly spiralled downwards into freefall, without much control or satisfaction other than in drugs and alcohol. With this as a context Al-Barakah Academy was established to reviving Deen, in particular the Muslim youth.
Al Barakah Academy aims to follow in the footsteps of the Islamic Dawah Academy (Leicester) through serving the needs of the muslim youth and wider community.
