Following a desperate need for a local Masjid and Madrasah in the Fir vale area of Sheffield, a two storey semi-detached residential property was bought in 1998 by a group of local Muslims. Since then, Masjid Umar has excelled and flourished in facilitating the diverse religious and social needs of the community. A further detached residential property adjacent to the Masjid was purchased to meet the needs and interests of the wider community. Masjid Umar continues to provide an excellent service to men, women and children.

On the 21st January 2010, only with the Grace of Allah the much needed Yorkshire Muslim Academy (YMA) was established as an off shoot of Masjid Umar, Sheffield. Its unique central location in the city, serves as an ideal platform to accommodate for the religious and secular educational needs of the community as well addressing the social and cultural welfare and interests of the people.
URGENT E-PETITION – PROTECT HALAAL SLAUGHTERING IN UK!
- The UK Goverment is proposing a parliamentary debate on whether halaal slaughtering should be banned in the UK. If the law is passed, then this will mean that Muslims living in the UK will not be able to access and eat any halaal meat at all! Denmark has already banned kosher and halal slaughter as minister says ‘animal rights come before religion’ (see link for full details - http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/denmark-bans-halal-and-kosher-slaughter-as-minister-says-animal-rights-come-before-religion-9135580.html).
- 100,000 signatures have been gathered by those who are against Halal. This means parliament and MP's are going to debate this on Mon 23rd February.
- It is everyone's responsibility to protect Halal. We are aimiing to get 100,000 signatures before the debate. This is a HUGE task but can be done if we all work hard before this Monday. Currently we only have 65,000 signatures from a Muslim population of around 3 million living in the UK!
- PLEASE URGENTLY SIGN the petition by clicking on this link http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/74830 and pass the messge on to all your contacts.
