Interfaith Week - Mohammed Fahim

My name is Mohammed Fahim and I run the Afghan Community and Welfare Centre, a community organisation supporting newly arrived families from different backgrounds to help integrate into society.

Interfaith means to me that people from various traditions, cultures and belief systems come together in order to understand one another and have respect for their beliefs and culture.

My favourite verse from the Holy Quran:

In the Quran, Allah (swt) says: “Help one another in acts of piety and righteousness. And do not assist each other in acts of sinfulness and transgression. And be aware of Allah. Verily, Allah is severe in punishment” (Quran 5:2).

I have been working in the community for the last 15 years, helping and supporting people in need, engaging with people from different backgrounds and beliefs. I have been involved in arranging delivery support services during the coronavirus lockdown, delivering essential food items and medicine to the elderly and vulnerable people in the community. I also supported people digitally.
