• On-Line Zakat Payment Facilities

    This service provides a convenient way of fullfilling one of the pillars of Islam. Over the past years we have noticed that more and more members are using our service. Because of the importance of zakat, this service is open to all Muslims regardless of whether they are Melayu UK members or not.

  • Hari Raya Party

    Eid ul-Fitr (a celebration to mark the end of the fasting month, Ramadan) and Eid ul-Adha are joyous times for Muslims. Melayu UK organises Eid parties on these occasions..

  • Perhimpunan Keluarga

    We organise Perhimpunan Keluarga to enable members and their family to get together for a few days for socialising. Perhimpunan Keluarga is also packed with various activities such as archery, orienteering, tog-o-war, pioneering and BBQ. Children who have been to Perhimpunan Keluarga still have vivid memories of the enjoyment that they experienced during their childhood years.

  • Tajwid from Scratch

    Our members are scattered across the UK and many live is areas where there are few Muslims and getting the opportunities to learn about Islam is limited. Those who would like to learn how to read the Quran can now subscribe to a self-pace online learning at http://tajwid.pisang.uk

  • Counselling Services

    Counselling services can be obtained from PISANG (Professional Islamic Support and Nurture Group), a Malay-driven not-for-profit organisation. Please visit their website www.pisang.uk for more information.

Formation of Unit Keluarga

We have received several requests lately from our members so that Melayu UK can organise some classes to help our members (adults and children) to learn how to read the Quran and also to learn more about Islam, especially Obligatory Knowledge or Fardhu 'Ain. There were also other suggestions on how to enhance the "persaudaraan" between members. We acknowledge that these are very good ideas and we have done a bit of homework.

Pak Majid and Rosnah (Milton Keynes) have offered to help those in the East Midlands region and Ustaz Mohd Nor and Ustazah Norhayati (from Birmingham, they were present at our recent Hari Raya Party) have offered to help our members in the West Midlands region. We are planning to have another class in North West England region (Cheshire / Wirral) and Insha'Allah will announce it shortly.

Since the classes involves families getting together at their preferred places, we can extend the meeting/get-together to include other activities that are of interest to those who attend. For this reason, we will name the meetings as "Perjumpaan Keluarga" and each grouping will be known as "Unit Keluarga" e.g. Unit Keluarga Melayu UK West Midlands.

To reduce the burden on the host, we will adopt the pot-luck method for supplying food i.e. everybody brings some food to the meeting. Meetings will be held at least once a month and each Unit Keluarga can independently decide to have more frequent meetings if they want to. Members can also join more than 1 Unit Keluarga if they wish.

In brief, the main activities during each Perjumpaan Keluarga will be:

1. Learning how to read the Qur'an (from scratch). We will order some books from Malaysia that will be used in learning how to read the Quran.
2. Learning Obligatory Knowledge (Fardhu Ain) - from scratch. We will be working with Ustaz Mohd Nor / Ustazah Norhayati to provide a syllabus for this.
3. Family projects (free activity depending on interest of participating families)

Adults and children (if available) will be taught separately.

We are happy to accommodate other members who are interested in joining the Unit Keluarga, or forming new Unit Keluarga. If you want to send private emails, please send it to any of our representatives.
