The Word Quran refers to the holy book of the Islamic religion. It is the religious text of Islam. Al Quran is the word of God dictated to Muhammad peace be upon him by the Angel Gabriel.
Islamic knowledge is usually defined as the type of knowledge that is used for religious discourse in Islam and for discovering and reflecting on the truth through the ritual of worship (I. Yusuf, 2012).
It is commonly used to mean the collective community of Islamic people. In the Quran the ummah typically refers to a single group that shares common religious beliefs, specifically those that are the objects of a divine plan of salvation.
Allah the Exalted, says ‘Spend O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you’ Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him . Join the Human Appeal family and help provide dignity and hope to those most vulnerable.
In Islamic literature, spirituality means awareness of the origin of the universe, worshiping God, seeking the satisfaction of God, humility, and submission, and trust which man demonstrates in all of his actions.
Islam is the religion of peace. We all know that. We have been taught that since young, and have been sharing to our peers when asked. True inner peace is found by submitting to Him, and while this has been taught to us and repeated to us constantly, it might be difficult for Muslim millennials to achieve just that without putting in the extra effort.

Serving the Community, Working in Partnership
Redhill Jamia Mosque is based right in the very centre of Earlswood Redhill Surrey. Our main priority is to serve the needs of the local community and to work towards the common good. Over time there have been noticeable improvements in Redhill Jamia Mosque promote education, health provision, environment, and community cohesion. Our partnerships with the Reigate and Banstead council, This builds on the very foundation of the mosque: a coming together of distinguished Muslims and non-Muslims to create the Reigate and Banstead first ever Jamia mosque.
Promoting Tolerance and Opposing Extremism
Redhill Jamia Mosque campaigns proactively to promote tolerance and understanding. Along with all the local mosques, We enjoy excellent interfaith relations – and the strength of these relationships has stood us all in good stead during the recent testing years. Every year we organise an interfaith forum on religious tolerance with representation from all the major faiths where we also remember and pay respect to our beloved prophet Muhammad (saw). Several times each year we open the doors of the mosque and centre, inviting people to visit and view an exhibition about Islam and Muslims.
Our Imam and community workers encourage constructive engagement in society and a rejection of extremism in all its forms. We unequivocally reject all terrorism. During the rise of extremist groups in the 1990s, who spurned cooperation with others and denounced participation in the democratic process, Redhill Jamia Mosque stood firm against this distortion of Muslim beliefs and prevented them from using the mosque as a platform for promoting their views.
Youth and Women: Encouraging Participation
Redhill Jamia mosque offers a range of services that enable young people and women to engage in a positive and safe environment. We have one of the youngest congregations since our establishment, with increasing numbers of youth actively engaging in programmes of learning and recreation, dealing with issues of anti-social behaviour, drugs, extremism and gang culture. The new Muslim cultural centre provides young people the ‘space’ to meet and take part.
Facilities are provided to allow women to access relevant services in a culturally sensitive environment, including counselling services, special events, social support, training and fitness; some of these activities are offered in partnership with local community organisations.
