Received this from someone in America – another great idea for Halloween!
“This year we decided to use Halloween as a platform to counter the misconception about Islam, put forward by the horrible acts of groups such as ISIS and others! We decided to look at the concept of “The acceptance of diversity, peace and tolerance in Islam”.
Hence with each bag of candy we added a little letter! The letter also had a Quranic verse proving that Islam beautifully acknowledges differences and celebrates diversity.
Alhamd, ’tis all we have left folks! Quick, one more day till Christmas 😉
To those of you who were asking about them today, have inboxed you 🙂
P.S. On another note, as we have now begun Ashra-e-Zainabiyya, we will be focusing on our next lot of ideas over the next few days from tomorrow, Inshallah. During the ten days we talked about what we can do to commemmorate at home and with our individual families, and Insh we will now focus on ideas to commemmorate collectively. Please do send in your ideazz!
Just wanted to share a beautiful 5 minute clip of the recitation of the Holy Quran followed by a very moving speech at an Interfaith Service on Sunday in Connecticut attended by President Obama: http://www.youtube.com/embed/oHvYZeUV9EE
For those of you who still want to reach out to your friends, colleagues, teachers, police station, fire service, local hospital and doctor’s surgeries, libraries and many more from the other faith, we yesterday received our final batches of the Interfaith Christmas
From the 1,300 we ordered – we now only have left the following, thanks to the amazing response we have had from everywhere:
(i) 90 – A6 cards
(ii) 16 packs – A7 mini cards (160 cards).
Postman Pat sending a post out today (3pm), tomorrow, and a final post going out on Thursday!
600 cards arrived – 600 cards all GONE! (Don’t worry if you haven’t ordered yours yet – we have re-ordered some!)
Alhamdulillah, we have had a fantastic response to the Christmas Cards with a twist!
There are some phenomenal initiatives taking place: Stanmore Jafferys & Hyderi Centers are both doing lovely gift bags to all the neighbours around the area: A box of chocolates, a WIH card and a Buzz Christmas card to apologise for the inconvenience we put them through during the year, and thank them for their understanding.
Wouldn’t it be great to get all our centers around the country to reach out to our neighbours and wish them a lovely break? So if there is anyone who is part of a youth group, committee etc… look forward to your orders and will get them shipped out asap!
P.S. Will post more details later on the neighbour initiative as Stanmore Jafferys are looking for families to knock on the door to hand out the gift bags!
Alhamdulillah, have started to dispatch people’s orders – some by hand, some by post, some by messenger 😉
Do tell us what you think when you receive yours!
They’re heeeeeere (all of them this time!) …
Don’t think we’ve gotten so excited about a box before 🙂

P.S. We have changed our name to Buzz Ideazz! Hope you like 🙂
