0 38

A leading British Muslim organization has elected Raghad Altikriti as its first female Muslim president on Tuesday, January 21, in a new breakthrough for Muslim women in the country.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

“It is an honor to be elected as the first female President of the Muslim Association of Britain, to represent and serve our members from all across the country,” Altikriti said upon her appointment in a statement published online.

“I look forward to working with our branches and departments
to strengthen our ties to civil society and continue pushing for the betterment
of society. As our country continues to face increased division and distrust, I
hope that with this new leadership we can bring and promote continued unity and
mutual understanding.”

She added: “While we’re proud of this moment, there’s so
much more work that needs to be done. We hope this will pave the way to support
more female participation and bridge the gender disparity across the different
levels, acknowledging that the years ahead will be defining in its challenges
for British Muslims.

“I will continue to ensure that we successfully celebrate and elevate the contributions of British Muslims across the country to civil society and beyond.”
