WMO Ramadaan Zakat Appeal 2021

Dear Fellow Memon Brothers and Sisters,

01 April 2021

Blessed greetings for the forthcoming holy month of Ramadan to you and your families.

We take this opportunity to give you an account of noble work being done by the World Memon Organisation (“WMO”) for the welfare and well-being of the Memon community and humanity generally throughout the world.

The main objective of the WMO is to eradicate poverty and illiteracy in the Memon community. It is a platform for Memons‟ worldwide to serve humanity through their inherent nature, culture and philanthropic tradition. Today the world over, we are proud to witness the great work carried out by our forefathers in establishing Masajids, Educational Institutions, Hospitals, Orphanages and Community Centres.

You will be pleased to note that during the short period of its existence, the WMO has spent more than US$60 million [Sixty Million US Dollars] for educational, rehabilitation and relief projects mainly in Pakistan, India, Africa and Sri Lanka, which is where the need is greatest. WMO with the help of all nine chapters are working on the following projects:

  • Education for All Scheme
  • Higher Education Scheme
  • Gift of Sight Project
  • Rehabilitation Project
  • Rozgar Scheme
  • Ramadan Ration Projects
  • Projects for Special Children

It is our collective responsibility through WMO to ensure that these deprived members of the community can stand on their own feet, live with dignity and supported from being recipients to donors of Zakat.

Let us be reminded of the various Quranic verses and Hadith of our beloved Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) that priority for Zakat should be given to one’s family, relatives and community. In this case the reward is doubled.

Zakat is an obligation for all of us and it should be given every year, preferably in the Holy Month of Ramadan. The WMO is a “Ray of Hope‟ for many of needy and deserving Memon families worldwide, for which we would humbly request you to join hands and dispense your Zakat to the WMO, for Allah’s blessings. Your Zakat will give hope to the less fortunate members of our community.

25th Anniversary Memon Annual Sports Tournament 2015

PRESS RELEASE

 

Event: Leicester Memon Youth Association Multi-Sports Tournament

Date: November and December 2015

Location: Various Location in Leicester including Memon Centre

  

Valuable Event for our Memon Youth Community

Leicester Memon Youth organisation have built up on their success of the 2014 event which saw a record number of participants in the 2015 tournament (25th Anniversary) The event held in November and December was enjoyed by the community with a dazzling array of sports tournaments that included football, table tennis, darts, cricket, FIFA on PS3, table football and much more! Late night’s hard work and positive banter made it all worthwhile.

The event kicked off with FIFA and Pool tournament at the Corner Pocket on Friday 6th November for juniors who were competing to reach the final and secure a trophy. The ever popular table tennis tournament followed on Friday 13th November at the Memon Centre. Players competed against one another in this fast and demanding quick reaction game. Some spins proved too much for some players leading to the final winners, Imran Sacranie for the adults, Mohamed Jakhura under 16’s and Ahmad Gaffar for under12’s.

The Badminton tournament was held on Saturday 12th December at the Crown Hills Community College played on 8 courts, starting with under 12’s category and under 16’s followed by an adult’s doubles tournament with 64 adults participating. Pairs were picked on their ability which proved very difficult for the organisers to rate in categories considering everyone claiming either to be an expert or a complete novice.

Further events were scheduled through the month with indoor cricket been the last one held on Saturday 19th December. 42 keen batsmen took part all at different levels. This fast, furious and fun game with a high tempo kept going till late testing the player’s reactions to see which team comes out top.

Also by back popular demand a bowling tournament was organised for adults and juniors with the event organisers looking to do more whilst everyone was in the spirit of joining in. Congratulations to Asif Alimahomed beating his own highest score of 155 set in 2014. The new high score of 231 has raised the bar for the future bowlers.

To round the tournament off a presentation ceremony took place on Friday 8th January at the Memon Centre. The awards presentation was a wonderful way for the community to recognise and acknowledge the achievements and talents of our young and old participants for 2015. This was a great way to showcase the community at its brilliant best with over 637 people taking part. As with every Memon traditional custom, food was served straight after.

Shabir Jakhura vice Chair of the youth group, said: “Each year the tournament goes from strength to strength and we are delighted with how it has grown over the years. It was a team effort and feedback from event organisers and participants has been extremely positive. We are keen to hear from any individuals or groups that would like to take part in the tournament or who would like to support the event through sponsorship, engagement or in-kind contributions. We look forward to return next year”

Ashraf Okhai Chairman of the Memon Youth Association, said: “The tournament provides a real showcase for the community to get together, I would like to thank everyone who was involved within the youth programme. Events like these are great at raising awareness to maintain our culture and talent that we have in Leicester and something that we all should take great pride in. I would encourage everyone to support and enjoy them on a regular basis”.

Ashraf Added: “In future we would like all the tournament activities to take place at the new Memon Centre which is currently under construction, this facility is very important in helping us to engage with the local community and forging better links with regional and national memon organisations. The construction is in the early stages and we are currently requesting everyone for donations to bring this magnificent new centre ready for 2016 tournament.”
