The police and the community- partners in good time

Allah (SWT) tests us all in different ways, whether it’s through our accomplishments, children, wealth, our friends, our jobs, or our daily lives; we are getting tested to see if we are grateful servants. He said in the Quran ‘do men think that they will be left alone on saying, “We believe”, and that they will not be tested? We did test those before them, and Allah will certainly know those who are true from those who are false’. (Quran Surah 29:2)

I would be lying if I said that I was not scared of the recent events that have taken place in the UK. The rioting has made every one stand up and take notice. These youths mean business when they go out burning people’s homes, cars, and businesses that people have spent a lifetime building. The events have been absolutely out of order, revolting, distasteful, and sad. For a true believer this is a test from Allah especially this Ramadan, to increase our good deeds.

These thoughts arise when such events occur – a person lives in fear, a person becomes shattered, traumatised and by losing everything they become unable to live as they did before. We saw the riot police doing everything within their limited powers to alleviate the situation, but it was too much for them. It was not until today when I have discovered the hard work the police put in. The National Association Muslim police have stood up and are counted for, and I am very proud of what they have done for the United Kingdom and especially in my city, London.

The NAMP have become an integral part of the community, they have earned their respect and rightly so. Being in the front line of combating the riot, shows what true bravery is all about. NAMP educate our youth, outreach in the community, become mentors to young people, helping them find their direction.

Where charity starts at home, is there a better way than to show your appreciation to the National Association of Police than helping them help our community. Allah (SWT) has given us the opportunity again with the current riots that has taken place to return back to him, and show we are true servants and we are of those who can help.

At Zakat House we feel very privileged to have the NAMP as our partner and we are asking you in this current situation to show your full generosity and support to them.
