    Have you been subjected to prejudice, discrimination or
    taunting/bullying in the work place on the grounds of
    race/colour/religion? If so you can help me!

    I am compiling some research materials for a new course on
    Cultural Diversity & Awareness-aimed at the white/non ethnic
    population. This course will provide training/coaching on
    acceptable behaviours/prepare managers to manage diverse
    people form ethnic background, prevent overt and covert
    discrimination on the grounds of race-and generally create
    greater awareness/knowledge and hence tolerance & understanding.
    I would like to know of specific examples of discrimination,
    how it arose, how it was communicated (words used/body
    language/other behaviour), consequences of any action taken;
    how the organisation dealt with complaints; But more
    importantly, I am keen to learn how discrimination is
    communicated or expressed in the workplace. I can send you
    a brief form to insert that information if you contact me
    at the email address below. Your help will be most valuable.

    Rest assured I am not a lawyer, member of the Police force
    or any other official agency. I run my own training/marketing/
    project management consultancy called 'Acumen'. Please respond
    to the e-mail address below: [email protected]

    Many thanks,
    Rauf Mirza

    **************************RECENT NOTICES*******************************


    Following successful public meetings in Birmingham this summer, the
    families of the 3 Tipton detainees of Guantanamo Bay have been trying
    to get Sandwell Council to allow a similar public meeting in the
    Muslim Community Centre in Tipton. All three of the Tipton families
    live within a couple of streets of the Centre. The purpose of this
    meeting is to bring together the families and legal teams of the
    detainees, to raise public awareness of the persecution that they and
    the hundreds of other detainees are suffering. To date there has been
    no evidence bought forward against any of the detainees, who are
    locked up like animals. Many of whom have been denied the basic
    right to medical attention.

    After several weeks of trying to get Sandwell Council to agree, we
    appear to be stuck in a bureaucratic quagmire (you might be forgiven
    for thinking that booking a room in a community centre should be a
    simple affair!). Council officers are saying there are "safety issues"
    which prevent them allowing the meeting, but they are unable or
    unwilling to say what these might be.

    They also cite "the public nature" of the meeting as being a problem,
    when public meetings take place at Sandwell Community Centres all the
    time. This inertia has encouraged the belief, already in circulation,
    that the decision to withhold permission is deliberate and is based
    on a preference within the Council to keep the whole issue of the
    detainees' experience under wraps.

    I am writing to ask for your support in protesting to Sandwell Council.
    I have spoken to the three families in Tipton and we would like other
    organisations and individuals to contact the Leader of the Council,
    Bill Thomas to ask that they be allowed to use the centre for their

    In addition to the phone calls made to the Council, two of the
    families have already made applications in writing and at least
    one of their solicitors have also written asking for the Council to
    confirm that use of the Community Centre will be granted. The council
    will not send them a written denial to their request!!

    Please help raise awareness of the plight of our brothers by
    contacting Councillor Bill Thomas at:

    I am planning to put together a database of artists within the

    Future Projects and Activities may include:

    - Organising workshops in schools, colleges, youth clubs, etc
    - Organising exhibitions within arts sites in the Midlands

    The Muslim Association of Britain Presents:


    Date: Saturday 27th September
    Venue: Central London (more details coming soon)

    Palestine has been under the occupation of the Zionists for more
    than 50 years, and the Al Aqsa Holy Mosque for 36 years, during
    which we have seen the word 'oppression' gain a new meaning.
    Millions of Palestinians have been deprived of their homes,
    land, possessions and an opportunity to live without the fear and
    threat of murder or oppression. Allies of the Zionist state in the
    West have continuously tried to shift our focus through 'peace'
    processes. There will be peace only when there is justice and
    freedom for all in a Palestinian state with all its land,
    resources and its people, Insha Allah.

    There is a sense of despondency at the moment. But we cannot
    afford this pessimism and hopelessness with so much at stake.
    Hope and success does not come by sitting and hoping. It is only
    through real effort that this is achieved. On September 27th we
    mark the 3rd anniversary of the return of heroic Palestinian
    resistance, the Intifadah, by expressing our solidarity with
    our brothers and sisters in Palestine, thereby Insha Allah,
    strengthening the movement for Freedom to the Palestinian people.

    On September 27th we renew our commitment to creating a just
    and peaceful world, by also demanding the end of the occupation
    of Iraq. The demonstration is jointly organised by The Muslim
    Association of Britain, Stop the War Coalition, CND, and Friends
    of Al Aqsa.

    Islamic Circles Presents:


    by Brother Abu Muntasir

    Date: Sunday 28th September 2003
    Time: 11am - 1pm

    The Prophet (saw) said: "The best of my nation is my generation then
    those who follow them and then those who follow them." (Sahih Bukhari)

    At one time this Message (Islam) created a generation - the generation
    of the Companions of the Prophet (saw) - without comparison in the
    history of Islam, even in the entire history of man. After this, no
    other generation of this calibre was ever to be found again. It is
    true that we do find some individuals of this calibre here and there
    in history, but never did a great number of such people exist in one
    region as was the case during the first period of Islam. What was
    unique about the early converts of Islam - the 'Qur'anic Generation'.
    Why was this? What lessons can we take from them? How can we can apply
    these lessons today? Are we anywhere near them?

    Insha'Allah, we look forward to seeing you there in what promises be
    a highly informative and enlightening lecture and Q&A session.

    Venue: Froud Centre, Romford Road (on the corner with Toronto Ave),
    Manor Park, London, E12 5JF

    Venue: Westbourne Hall, 26 Westbourne Grove, London W2 5RH

    Ru'ya, meaning "Vision" or "Dream" is an inspired art exhibition
    showing art works by Farouq Molloy, John Kingerlee and Eugenie
    Vronskaya. Having exhibited before individually, this is the
    first time that these up and coming artists will show together.
    Each body of work is different, but the artists feel that they
    can draw on the best of their European backgrounds and heritage
    to produce original work. There is, however, another common
    thread: Islam. With Europeans embracing Islam in increasing
    numbers, and with many non-Muslims curious about Islam, this
    show offers a fresh perspective on what it is to be a European
    Muslim artist. The Exhibition promises to fascinate all those
    interested in the developing field of modern art inspired by
    the Islamic World."

    Dates: Saturday 4th October (For Women)

    Venue: Madinatul Uloom, Butts Lane, Summerfield, Kidderminster, DY10

    When the words of the Prophet (saw) are recited, there is a shower of
    blessings just as when the words of Allah (swt) are recited. In view
    of this auspicous nature of the words of the Prophet (saw), we have
    conducted classes of hadeeth in both the men's institutions (Darul
    Uloom / Madinatul Uloom) and the women's institution (Jamiatul Imam
    Muhammed Zakariyya). We are nearing the end of our academic year,
    and are about to complete the teaching of the six books of hadeeth.
    We are holding a completion and graduation ceremony so that all
    brothers and sisters may have an opportunity to participate in the
    final lesson in hadeeth. Following the success of previous
    conferences, we would once again like to extend an invitation to
    all sincere seekers of knowledge to this years Bukhari Graduation
    Ceremony. In addition to participating in the blessed completion
    of Sahih al-Bukhari (the most authentic book after the Qur'an), the
    event aims to provide the listeners with an opportunity to benefit
    from the intellectual and spiritual attentions of the Ulama over a
    period of two days in the tranquil and natural surroundings of
    Madinatul Uloom al Islamiyyah. Your support and participation would
    be most appreciated and mutually beneficial, inshaAllah.

    The conference activities will include recitation by different
    Qurra, and speeches in English and Urdu aimed at providing spiritual
    guidance and instruction. Food & Accommodation will be provided.

    Directions by Road (From Birmingham and the North West):

    Leave M5 at Junction 3. Take the A456 (Kidderminster) until you
    reach Hagley. Take the left fork at the garage onto A450 heading
    towards Worcester. Proceed for 5 miles until you reach the Mustow
    Green roundabout. Go straight over roundabout, still on the A450
    to Worcester. Less than 1 mile along this road you will see a
    phonebox. Turn right into Heath Lane. After it you will find
    Madinatul Uloom is a few hundred yards on the right.

    Time: 11 am - 1pm

    * 'Alimah Aisha Abdurrahman Bewley is one today's most prolific

    Date: Saturday 18th October 2003
    Time: 9.30 am - 6.00 pm

    Alhamdulillah the month of Ramadan is approaching and if Allah (swt)
    gives us the ability we will fast. Unfortunately for many it has
    become the 'month of sleeping' and instead of reforming oneself it
    has turned into a cultural practice or 'a thing we must do', hence
    devoid of all the benefits a person could gain. The root cause of
    this is ignorance. Year after year the same questions pop up. How
    can we 'really' make use of Ramadan in a practical way. The answer
    lies in preparing for it! This specially designed course will help
    you explain the following:

    * Fasting - proofs, obligations, breaking fast
    * Permissible and non-permissible actions
    * Taraaweeh
    * Moon Sighting
    * Eid ul-Fitr and Zakat ul-Fitr
    * Differences in opinion
    * Other types of fasting
    * Women and fasting
    * Making up fasts

    ... and many other issues that are closely related to Ramadan.
