Contents of the Booklet:

The booklet consists of two chapters, ‘What is the purpose of your life?’ and ‘What is Islam?’

After printing of the booklet, it will InshaAllah be distributed to non-Muslims around throughout several cities around the region of Yorkshire.

Below is a short extract from the booklet which should you give you a better understanding InshaAllah of the theme and contents of the book:

“What then is the basic theme of this amazing authentic book; the Qur’an?

It is the supreme Oneness of Allah including His Names, Attributes, the relationship between the Almighty and His creatures and how man should maintain that relationship. It tells us about the continuity of the Prophets and Messengers, their lives, their messages and their overall mission and it insists upon the following of the final and universal example of Muhammad, the seal of the Prophets and Messengers.

It reminds human beings of the shortness of this life and calls them towards the eternity of the next life. After you die and you leave this earth you are going somewhere whether you accept it not. You are responsible because you have been told even if you have rejected the message, because the aim of this life is not for you to sit around and do nothing and have no effect. Every cause has an effect and you came into this life for a cause and a purpose, therefore it must have an effect.”


IslamBradford is an UK Islamic Dawah Organisation and registered charity (no. 1105942) established in January 2004.

Friday Khutbah in English

Well over fifty khutbas have been delivered in English at the IslamBradford Centre since its inception. The response has been tremendous. There has been an attempt to balance both traditional and contemporary content. The Friday sermon is IslamBradford’s flagship programme attracting at times in excess of two hundred people from all genders, backgrounds and walks of life. Khateebs at IB are carefully selected for their adherence to the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah and ability to convey the message of Islam in a relevant and lively way in native English. One brother recently commented that not only are the khutbas at IB probably the best in Bradford but also are probably the best in the UK!

“I advise you to go to the centre and attend the Friday khutba and prayer also: it is a very good environment that has made me feel at ease and energised to be a great Muslim. I go to the centre several times in the average week. I believe that you, too, will not regret going, and Allah will be pleased with that”– Abdul Majid Isa [Bradford]

IB also give Khutba Training Seminars (click here).

IB Being Active

IB plays an active part enganging with non-Muslims and Muslims within our community, listing a few of their participations:

New Shahada’s

Below are afew of the new shahada’s taken at IB

We ask everyone to remember us in their prayers and for Allah to bless us and allow us to continue striving in spreading the true message of Islam.

The Messenger of Allah (S) said: ‘Whoever gives the amount of a date in Sadaqah (charity) from good halal earnings – and know that Allah does not accept but that which is good, Allah will accept it with His Right Hand and will nurture the Sadaqah for its giver as you nurture your young colts, until the Sadaqah becomes like the Mount of Uhud.’ [Hadeeth, Bukhaari and Muslim]

May Allah accept your Sadaqah and make it grow the size of Mountain Uhud, Ameen.
