'It's good to see Muslims and Christians working together for the common good'

Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association in Dewsbury and Spen Valley marked the end of the Muslim Holy Month of Ramadan by joining up with Reverend Simon Cash and his team at Dewsbury Minister to feed the homeless and needy on Saturday 24 June 2017.  They were joined by local MP – Ms Paula Sherriff and Mrs Sharon Kingsland – Community Champion at ASDA in Dewsbury.

The Minster regularly takes care of the local homeless and needy by providing them with sandwiches and a warm drink.  On this occasion sandwiches, personally prepared by Mrs Kingsland, and portions of Chicken Korma, prepared by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth, were also provided.  In total approximately 20 people were fed.

Reverend Simon Cash stated that it was good to see Muslims and Christians working together for the common good.

Ms Paula Sherriff commended the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth for their work and said she looked forward to being involved in and assisting more inter-faith work in the community.

Mrs Sharon Kingsland stated it was a great event which she loved being a part of as it supported people in need in the local community.

Mr Manzoor Ahmad, local coordinator of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth in Dewsbury and Spen Valley, thanked Reverend Simon Cash and his team for the assistance they provided and stated that it is a part of every Ahmadi Muslim’s faith to serve humanity irrespective of their race, colour or religion.  He said that the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth would continue to serve the local community and looked forward to working with the Minster again.

Throughout Ramadan, a month when charity and serving humanity is actively encouraged, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth also collected clothes for the Humanity First appeal.  Humanity First (registered charity number 149693) is an international charitable trust established to promote and safeguard the preservation of human life and dignity.  In total 40Kg of clothes were collected and presented to the charity.
