The Role of Youth in Society

The WLIC Youth Committee invites our young brothers and sisters to a special evening on Wednesday 14th March 7pm, with Imam Yahya Ederer (USA), organised in association with UKIM Youth at the West London Islamic Centre, Ealing.

At a time when many young people have been distracted towards social ills, bad company and the squandering of time, the Deen of Islam inspires its youth to be faith-filled, active, engaged and productive members of their community and society. The Imam is here on a UK tour to help our young people re-discover their true identity and purpose. Meet the Imam and come and enjoy a relaxing evening in good company and good food Insha’Allah

While in Kuwait , he attained a diploma from the institute for Islamic Studies. In 2008 he finished his memorisation of the Qur'an and attained an Ijazah that puts his name on a list of 29 other people who are in the chain of narration of the Qur'an based on memorisation and recitation of the Qur'an by Hafs according to Asim by way of Tayyibah.
