Irish Society Raises Islamic Awareness
A newly established Islamic society in Ireland’s south east city of Waterford has been nominated the best Islamic society in Ireland for December, 2013, in recognition of their efforts to offer help to Muslim students, raise funds, and increase Islamic awareness.
“Overall, [the week] was quite successful, considering it was during the mid-term exams. Our aim at the start was to try raise around €1000, so due to the grace of God, we accomplished just that,” Ahmed Mohmed, the president of Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT) Islamic Society, said.
“But in Islam, it’s not always about the results, but about the intention and the action that follows it.”
Established in May, 2013, to cater to Muslim students studying in WIT, the WIT Islamic Society has now grown into a successful role model for Islamic organizations in Ireland.
Earlier in November, the society held its first charity week, which took place between Monday 11th to Thursday 21st November.
The event, run in conjunction with the Federation of Student Islamic Societies (FOSIS), raised over €1,700 in aid of orphanages and schools in Palestine and Syria
During the week, the first event was held in two mosques of Waterford city and college prayer room where the society held a Cake Sale, donated by volunteers to raise funds after Friday prayer.
The social media has also been widely used in advertising the charity week among the students.
Public relation officer Hala Cherbatji has posted ads on facebook pages and groups related to the college in order to call for volunteers and make students aware of our charity week and cause.
The society has also asked the local imams to give Friday sermon on charity and orphans in Islam in order to increase awareness of local Muslims outside the college about the charity week.
Islamic publicity officer Ahmmed Al-fadhli, treasurer Bader Albadran and vice-prayer room officer Radi Alsaiari were all involved in several events during the charity week.
The Islamic Society also held a football match between our Islamic Society members and the Erasmus students that are in the college.
The fundraising events were coordinated with Dr. Mohammad Alhourani, the imam of Waterford Muslims Community, after Friday prayer held at Viewmount Mosque.
The Federation of Student Islamic Societies (FOSIS) Ireland awarded WIT Islamic Society “The Best Islamic Society in Ireland” title for the month of December due to its efforts during charity week.
