Young Muslims from Spen Valley joined members of the local community this morning to help keep Britain's streets clean after the new-year festivities.

Youth from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) Spen Valley celebrated the New Year by waking at the crack of dawn offering communal prayers for a prosperous 2018. After the Morning Prayer, they took to the streets, brooms and bin bags in hand as part of the 'Big Street Clean'.

The campaign is one of many charitable and community initiatives carried out by the AMYA across the winter break. The group also organised blood donation sessions, charity collections, Children's hospital and Nursing home visits, and homeless feeding sessions.

 Manzoor Ahmad ,  Head of AMYA Spen Valley said:
"Our members have enjoyed living in Spen Valley for decades and so any opportunity to help our local Community is much welcome."
"Cleaning the streets of Batley Town centre also presents us with an opportunity to become better Muslims as Cleanliness is an integral part of our faith. We are peace loving British Muslims and will continue to do all we can to serve our local community as best we can and wherever there is a need."

AMYA is an auxiliary body of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a religious and charitable Muslim organization. With more than 8600 members spread across 124 chapters in the United Kingdom, AMYA frequently partake in tree planting, homeless feeding and foodbank donation sessions.

In 2017, AMYA raised over 600,000 pounds for various British charities, planted 25,000 trees, fed 14,000 people living in poverty and visited over 6000 people in care homes and hospitals to counter loneliness. In addition, AMYA members donated 250 units of blood and donated over 5,200 kg of food to food banks and 4,500 kg of clothes.

The organization focuses on helping young Muslims become better citizens and fulfil their religious obligations of serving God and humanity.

The spirit with which AMYA members embrace charitable and community activities is encapsulated by the following statement of the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, who said: "My Desire, my wish and my objective is serving humanity. It's my job, my faith, my inspiration and my way."
