This summer, in the blazing Arabian sun, I will be ascending Mounts Noor, (where the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) would spend endless hours in deep reflection and where the first revelation was received) and Thawr (where the Prophet (SAW) and Abu Bakr (RA) found sanctuary when they had commenced the hijra, migration from Makka to Madina), to raise money for two amazing causes; Ebrahim College and the Muslim Community Fund.

In the Footsteps of the Beloved

The trek is organised by Ebrahim College (EC). EC is an Islamic sixth form that offers school leavers and adults the opportunity to study

both traditional Islamic Sciences and mainstream secular education. Despite the academic success, EC constantly struggles to make ends meet financially, as the College is not supported by the Government. Course fees are heavily subsidised by the College, to make the courses accessible to all. This ultimately results in a negative cash flow. With a deficit of over £200,000, EC has launched a £1,000,000 campaign to help raise the necessary funds to build a secure future for the College, its students and the community it serves. Working in partnership with EC is the Muslim Community

Fund (MCF). MCF seeks to address the incredibly poor state of the Muslim Community in the UK, compounded by a lack of awareness and investment toward it, by the community or otherwise. Since their formation in early 2009, MCF have since coordinated one funding cycle for one grant scheme, dedicated to improving provisions for youth and students - increasing their aspirations, creating more relevant and appropriate services for them, skills/training courses.
