Last Updated on July 5, 2015

The Met Office has released a forecast for a heatwave across England for the next two weeks with temperatures reaching up to 33 degrees in some parts.  This has been declared a Level 2 Heat-health alert.

Whilst fasting we should all take the necessary precautions and be sensible about our risks.

NHS choices, Public Health England and the Muslim Council of Britain have published 7 tips stay safe and healthy.

1.) During hot weather, dehydration is a common and serious risk, it is important that you drink plenty of water between Iftar (sunset meal) and Suhoor (pre-dawn meal)

2.) Try to keep out of the sun between 11am to 3pm

3.) Balance food and fluid intake in between fasts, ensuring you drink sufficient water

4.) Wear light, loose-fitting cotton clothes, a hat and light scarf

5.) If you start to feel unwell, disorientated, confused, or collapse or faint, be prepared to stop fasting and have a drink of water or other fluid.

6.) This is especially important for older adults, those with poorly controlled medical conditions such as low/high blood pressure, diabetes and those who are receiving dialysis treatment.

7.) Check on others in the community who may be at greater risk. Children are not allowed to fast – fasting is only for those who have reached puberty and are fit enough to fast.

Solar (PV) Panels being installed

Last Updated on June 24, 2015

If we as Muslims are to act as Allah’s representatives on Earth, we have a clear responsibility to look after and maintain this creation of His.

MCEC is proud to be taking steps to reduce our footprint on the environment. As we slowly move to a more ‘Greened-up’ Masjid for the future, we’re pleased to announce that installation has started on the roof-top of Muslim Community & Education Centre of a 15KWp Photovoltaic module (SOLAR Energy) system. As part of the UK Green Mosque Agenda, Inha’Allah MCEC has taken this major step in respecting our Environment and Climate for which Allah swt has chosen Mankind to be the custodians on the Earth.

“You could have seen the [light of the] sun as it rose moving to the right of their cave, and when it set, moving away to the left of them, while they lay in the wide space inside the cave. (This is one of God’s signs: those people God guides are rightly guided but you will find no protector to lead to the right path those He leaves to stray.

You would have thought they were awake, though they lay asleep. We turned them over, to their right and the left, with their dog stretching out its forelegs at the entrance. If you had seen them, you would have turned and run away, filled with fear of them.”

(Surah Kahf, Verses 17-18)

The Qur’an clearly talks of how the Sun is the source of causing the movements of the dwellers of the cave. The Sun acted as a God given blessing for those dwellers of the cave whom God was protecting and similarly it is a blessing to us today.

It is estimated that 20 per cent of London’s electricity could be supplied by solar power. We are spending over £6800 per year on Electricity costs alone so this should insha’Allah help towards reducing that cost.

Helping us along through this project are Control Electrical Engineers Ltd and  South Facing Ltd, both local companies who have provided us invaluable advice on this major project.
If you want to donate to similar projects aimed at ‘Greening up’ the centre feel free to get in touch at enquiries@mcec.org.uk.
