Response to Ladbroke Grove Fire





Our heartfelt prayers and sympathies are with the victims and families of the Grenfell Tower fire in Ladbroke Grove, West London. May the Almighty grant them ease and comfort. We give tribute to the heroes in our emergency services.

WLIC co-ordinated with Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre on the morning of the fire to deliver requested supplies, nappies, toiletries, blankets, tinned food and water. These are no longer needed. Our volunteers who attended have spoken of an out pouring of love and generosity from within the community. WLIC representatives visited the community and met with the CEO of Al Manar, Mr Abdur Rahman whose team have been doing admirable work and we will continue to work in partnership with local charities on the ground. #OneLondon

The Prophet (pbuh) said 'Verily the creation of each one of you is brought together in his mother's belly for forty days in the form of seed, then he is a clot of blood for a like period, then a morsel of flesh for a like period, then there is sent to him the angel who blows the breath of life into him and who is commanded about four matters: to write down his means of livelihood, his life span, his actions, and whether happy or unhappy. By Allah, other than Whom there is no god, verily one of you behaves like the people of Paradise until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written over takes him and so he behaves like the people of Hell-fire and thus he enters it; and one of you behaves like the people of Hell-fire until there is but an arm's length between him and it, and that which has been written over takes him and so he behaves like the people of Paradise and thus he enters it.'
