We praise Allah and thank Him for the blessings of Islam. We ask Allah to raise the rank of our Prophet Muhammad, sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam, and his Companions and to protect his nation from what he feared for it. We ask that Allah grant us the proper intention, the ability to understand and the reward in the Hereafter.
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend our 2014 AICP UK Spring Camp. We hope that both brothers and sisters will spend the weekend with us as we learn and enjoy the wonderful fellowship of Muslims.
Inshaa-`Allaah, the programme will start at
7pm on Thursday, April 17th and end at 8pm on Sunday, April 20th.
The programme will run from the Sunniyy Centre, Francis Street, Halifax (HX1 5JY) and the Raven Street Centre, (HX1 4NB).
Segregated accommodation will be made available to brothers and sisters.

This is on top of the daily sport activity and the classes on the camp's topic! Do not miss this opportunity to learn and spend valuable time with sisters!

When & Where
The Association of Islamic Charitable Projects was established in the UK in 1995. Our aim is to educate both children and adults about the Islamic tradition and to present our religion to people of all backgrounds. AICP UK believes that the key to dealing with modern social problems is empowerment through learning. Students leave our classes equipped with the tools that they need to lead lives of civic-mindedness and social responsibility. The authentic religious knowledge that we impart is derived from the soundest scriptural sources and we transmit our teachings of the Prophetic tradition through a continuous, unbroken chain of narration. We therefore enjoy widespread acceptance within the Muslim community. AICP UK is focused upon the continuation of our critical work within the Muslim community and we are keen to participate with other organisations that share our goals. As a non-profit organisation, our efforts are dependent upon the fund-raising activities of our members. We therefore welcome both practical and financial support from all those who wish to aid our cause. We believe that through concerted mutual effort, we can overcome our many contemporary social problems and build prosperous and peaceful communities.
