Eid & New Years Party
Al-Asr arranges an annual Eid and New Years Party to promote unity in the community. This event has been held annually since 2001.
Al-Asr is an international educational institute geared towards producing the leaders of tomorrow through providing educational and cultural awareness in the light of the teachings of the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them) to the young people of today. The organisation’s aim is a peaceful and constructive vision for the future.
The Al-Asr establishment is new to the century old Muslim community of Woking, which accommodates the oldest mosque in the UK, built over 100 years ago. However, the requirements of the Shia community were not being fulfilled. In the past the Shias from Woking have had to travel to London for educational and religious activities.
Madrasa Imam Al-Asr was established in 1995 in Woking to comply with the needs of the community. With Allahs blessings, in January 2000, the Shia community purchased a building in the Maybury area and dedicated to educational and cultural activities. The building accommodates a library, lecture rooms and prayer hall, thus providing a much needed focal point for the community.
Through this event we bring together local people and local government with Al-Asr members, students, helpers and supporters. This is a fantastic opportunity to forge new acquaintances and indeed find out about the organisation’s activities and objectives.
The social event includes talks from distinguished guests and Al-Asr management, slideshows and recitation by students. We intend to discuss issues related to Islam, education, women, cultural awareness and Muslim youth in the West. Needless to say there is a delicious meal to look forward to as well.
We are sure that these events are truly memorable experiences for all those who attend.
We look forward to seeing you at the next one!
