• 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.

Practical Approach or Deviant Teaching?

Within 100 days of Pakatan Rakyat's rule in Selangor state, it was reported by the media that Islam Hadhari (Civilisational Islam) was banned (Malay terminology used: haram) by the state government. A few days later after heated exchange of words, the "haram" terminology was changed to a milder "no longer promoting". A few other Pakatan Rakyat states later follow the footsteps of Selangor. What is so controversial about Islam Hadhari? Is there any substance in the "banning" of Islam Hadhari or was the "banning" a result of political sentiments?

Melayu UK is proud to organise an Intellectual Discourse on Islam Hadhari. This event will enable us to hear the version from the promoters of Islam Hadhari and also an occasion where participants can challenge the promoters or prove that Islam Hadhari is a deviant teaching.

This event is a platform for intellectual discussion and we hope at the end of the day we will have a clearer picture of Islam Hadhari e.g. is it an approach that we can apply globally especially in the UK, or is it a deviant form of Islam that has to be rejected.

It is important for us to attend the event as the intellectual discussion can differentiate us from those who pick up bits and pieces of information from YouTube or junk emails. To be good leaders, we have to equip ourselves with knowledge instead of just relying on rhetoric.

You can turn up at the event on the day. However we prefer you to pre-register as this will help us with in ensuring the smooth running of the event.
