MOTHER TO MOTHER ISLAMIC GROUP CUM CRECHE
The Mother to Mother Islamic Group is aimed at Mothers with young children who are housebound. Through research it is revealed that many fall into mental depression and frustration due to the same routine of work 365 days of the year. This project helps women to have a little leisure time for study, interact with other mothers and improve the well being of themselves & their children. A Montessori teacher and Assistants will be there to help with the children. The group themselves could organize common subjects of interest in their curriculum. To enhance their knowledge and give them self esteem.
Discussions on the Ideal Muslim Woman,
How one should teach Islamic Values to children,
Tajwid, & Hadees, of the Holy Quran Kareem.
Demonstrations on Culinary skills, Art, Sewing etc etc.
The Mothers Islamic Group and Creche will be open once a week for the start and after 6 months they could have these groups to function twice a week from 10.00 a.m. – 12.30 p.m beginning Insha Allah in the near future.
The Widows, Single parents & spinsters are another group of Women that needs fellowship due to their condition. This centre will be open to them too for twice a week.. The Group themselves could organize their curriculum.
Insha-Allah we invite all interested to this ‘Islamic -Leisure Group’ to enhance your knowledge on religion and other important subjects, needed for the betterment of ones self.

NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY
The social service projects mentioned below are a crying need for our community, for Men and Women.
CARRIER GUIDANCE COMMITTEE
This committee will help guide our Muslims who are unemployed to apply themselves to the best of their ability.
SKILLS TRAINING CENTRE REVERTS & NEEDY
In the Skills Training Centre the un-employed will be able to Inshah Allah gain some type of skill. This centre will Ishah Allah try to cater the current needs of the public, personal and mercantile.
The certificate obtained from “CIS SKILLS CENTRE” should be recognized as of high standard.
Home Attendant for babies and the sick
JOB BANK - A register of Muslims who require employment .
All Organizations who have Vocational Skills programmes could advice us the name & contact details of their applicants.
SHELTER HOME FOR CHILDREN
There are many social service organizations doing very good work. Each Organization have their own rules and regulations which they abide by.But at times there are many children who are unfortunate since they fall short of the certain needed requirements. For example a birth certificate, parents death certificate, or over age problem etc etc Such helpless children are rejected.
What happens to such children?
People of other faiths make use of these opportunities and lend a hand with an ulterior motive. When this happens the blame is ours. We are answerable to Allah Subhanawatala. An institution to cater to such children is urgently needed. Many reverts have brought their children to the CIS with similar problems and in the absence of such a home, they have given their non-muslim parents to bring up the child
What influence do you think that child will have due to the environment?????????..
SHELTER HOME FOR WOMEN
There are many Women, reverts and the needy who come to the Centre with accommodation problem.
They are either battered by the husband, in law problems, thrown out of the house for some reason or the other etc, etc...
At least a temporary shelter home should be available to house them till they overcome their sorrow
The Ladies Wing Insha-Allah should have a Shelter Home for Women to be counseled during this desperate period.. Religion and a skill should be taught to help them get on their feet Inshah Allah once again.
APPEAL FOR LAND OR HOUSE – DUAL PROJECT
- We appeal to a generous Well Wisher to kindly give us a piece of land or
- house approximately 10-15 perches to house these two meritorious
- projects which will gain the love and pleasure of Allah Subhanawatala.
- Shelter home for Children
Shelter home for Women
This project has to be funded through Donors and Donor Agencies. This fund has been inaugurated of the payment of salaries to teachers for extra classes for students in poor Muslim Schools.
It is‘a duty of ours to give the poor a helping hand in the field of education. Allah ubhana watala has created every human being with brains and the ability to achieve excellence in whatever one may practice. Therefore let us give the needy a fair chance in life through our generosity towards them.
FINANCE TEACHERS ON THE IMPORTANT SUBJECTS.
O/LEVEL & A/LEVEL SUBJECTS
Many intelligent poor children are deprived of achieving good results in Public Examinations, due to the inability to attend basic extra classes needed when sitting for public exams.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE –EXTRA CLASSES FOR YEAR 9 ABOVE
Today’s competitive world needs English. The child should master the English Language at an early age if he/she is to achieve a successful career. Today graduates are unable to speak fluent English having overlooked this important subject.Teaching English only at school class level for maximum ½ hour is not sufficient to bring about an outstanding individual.
ARABIC LANGUAGE FROM YEAR 9.
Understanding of the Holy Quran is Incumbent for every Muslim.
Time awaiting results -Discussions on the Hadees of our Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi wasallam and Basic Islam should be made. Compulsory. The output of an Islamic level headed individual - benefits self, family and community.
These shortcomings in our society is the findings of our Ladies Wing.
Insha-Allah let us all, with the help of generous Donors and Donor agencies help our needy sisters and brothers in Islam overcome all these problems.
Allah Subhanawa taa’ala’s highest pleasures are gained through ‘service to mankind.’
