IFI Raising Awareness: Violence Against Women
During the month of December 2021, the Islamic Foundation of Ireland teamed up with Amal Women's Association to raise awareness about violence against women that is currently affecting our society on a local and global level.
This involved the IFI contacting various religious organisations to speak about this issue as well as the Imam of our Mosque dedicating all of the Friday Khutbas (Sermons) during December towards raising awareness on this issue
As we are all aware of our local Irish news media, there has been a number of attacks against women, women that have gone missing and the most recent of murders.
This brings us back to the importance of women in Islam and to what the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) said: A man asked the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, “Who is most deserving of my good company?” The Prophet said, “Your mother.” The man asked, “Then who?” The Prophet said “Your mother.” The man asked again, “Then who?” The Prophet said, “Your mother.” The man asked again, “Then who?” The Prophet said, “Your father.
Abu Hurairah narrated that The Messenger of Allah said:
“The most complete of the believers in faith, is the one with the best character among them. And the best of you are those who are best to your women.”
Our Mosque is always open for help on this issue with its support and services and also has a dedicated support team from Amal Women's Association.
