West London Football Tournament 2008

It was a cold and windy start to the day, but that didn\'t stop 26 teams of 7 players turning up for the West London Football Tournament 2008. Playing on 5 pitches for the 2008 cup, there were attendees from as far away as Camberley.

After some fantastic games during the run up and in the semi\'s, the final was played out between Somali Youth from Hounslow and  the team representing the Mosque, Al-Muntada Islami in Fulham. It was a close match and Al-Muntada pinched it at the end. The winners recieved the cup and winners medals during a ceremony at the centre, the runners-up and team for best beahaviour and conduct, Camaberley also recieved medals.

The West London Islamic Centre Sports Committe would like to thank all the brothers who participated, the refs who done a brilliant job and Br Junaid Dar for helping organise the day. Insha\'Allah the Tournament will become an annual feature.


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.'
