About Our Organization...

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmathullahi Wabarakathuhu.

After many years of living in the United Kingdom, I began visiting Sri Lanka regularly. Since 2008, I had been spending more time in Sri Lanka than in the United Kingdom. During my early sojourns in Sri Lanka, discussions with my friends, often centered on the rapid spread of the Thabliq Jamaath and Wahabi movements which in the opinion of the Sri Lankan traditional Islamic belief of Sunnath Jamaath were effecting family unity. Most young men who went to the middle east for employment or studies, returned with new ideaologies and parents seeking partners for marriage were in a dilemma. Sunnath Jamaa Ath was fast loosing its traditional, pivotal position in Sri Lankan Muslim Society and was finding difficulty in recovering to its former glory.

This made me wonder, why most of us kept talking about this without exploring avenues to overcome this situation. My experience in the United Kingdom as the President of several organisations gave me the courage to suggest to my friends that we invite a wider section of our community to meet with a view to finding ways and means of overcoming this situation and reviving the Sunnah as practised and taught by our Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihiwasallam.

I invited my friends for a meeting at my residence. At the same time, I also requested them, on my behalf to extend the invitation to their friends. I was joyed to see several leading members of the community including some Mowlavi's attending the meeting. It was a very encouraging meeting. Thereafter, we had several more meetings followed by our official inaugural meeting on the 13th of June 2010 at the Colombo Public Library Auditorium. This meeting was graced by His Holiness Afdelul Ulama Asheikh Dr Thaika Shuaib Alim BA PHD Jalali, Thangal Reffai Moulana and Khaleefathul Khulafa Abdul Hameed Bahaji.

The first Board Members, the Patron and the Vice Patrons were elected at this meeting concluding with Dua and Salawath.Alhamdulillah, we have made significant progress in our short existence of three years helping to rekindle the interest in Ahlissuna Wal Jamaa Athi which is seeing a new revival.

We had a very cautious beginning in our first year where we had only two main functions, the Iftar and the Moulid Un Nabi. Thereafter we have progressed year on year adding more and more events each year. To name a few, these include, The Hiflul Quran Classes, English Language classes, English and Tamil Lectures, Lectures on Islam conducted by overseas scholars, followed by Q & A sessions and Da'wa excursions.

We are now looking at working on a wider sphere expanding our outlook, whilst continuing our current activities. We appeal to all you wonderful supporters and donors to kindly continue to contribute genorously so that we can serve the cause of Ithihaad Ahlissunathi Wal Jamaa Athi and Islam better.

Thanking You,
