Al Furqan Mosque & Coffee

My Long Lost Coffee...
Well this probably doesn't tie in very well after Umm Zaida's post on 'Balanced Diet,' but I'm sure she'll forgive me after trying this coffee!

My husband and I are very into our coffee and trying different ones. Not long ago I was at the hairdressers and they made me a cup of coffee. It was the nicest coffee that I have ever tasted, trust me - I've been drinking coffee since I was 8!

My Nanny, an elderly English Widow who would often look after us, used to make it for me as a way to make me drink milk.

So since tasting it at the hairdressers I've been wondering which coffee it is and Alhamdulillah I finally found it!


Al Furqan Mosque
And Speaking of coffee or rather coffee breaks... Myself and Umm Zaida, (a former Mancunian,) used to teach at Al Furqan Mosque In Rusholme.

The Masjid is in urgent need of charity donations in order to secure their premises.

Please check out their website on http://www.alfurqancentre.org.uk and donate whatever you can for the sake of Allah.

The brothers and sisters there do many things for children and the youth, as Myself and Umm Zaidah both witnessed first hand whilst working there.

With regards to the children we taught - many of whom were the children of the brothers who run the Mosque, I have to say I have never met such well mannered children. MashaAllah they were all so respectful and helpful, they would actually fight over who would help to carry our books, bags and even my umbrella! I had to have a child carry each of my things for me so that they all got a chance to help! May Allah have mercy on them all.

They have until October to raise these funds so please pass this message on to as many people as possible and support this.

your nanny gave you coffee!!!!

subhanAllah the children at al-Furqan schooln are indeed unique. I remember they used to jump with joy when I gave them homework and disappointed when there was no homework!! I remember a boy named AbdurRahman who used to recite qur'an like sudais and he was only 8 years old.

please help in any way you can inshaAllah.
