What does Al Furqan call to?
The Quran and Sunnah based firmly on the understanding of the righteous salaf (early generations of Islam)
What does Al Furqan do?
Our core activities include running structured weekly classes for men and women of all abilities and backgrounds to learn the fundamentals of Islam. We also organise the Jummah Khutbah (Friday sermon) delivered in English. In the month of Ramadan, we arrange nightly prayers (Taraweeh) as well as the Eid prayer for the community. In addition, for our youth we run a Saturday School to provide high quality Islamic teaching for 5 to 16-year olds.
Why was Al Furqan set up?
To realise positive transformation in lives through the spread of authentic knowledge and correct teaching. Using knowledge as a driving force to challenge misconceived beliefs and impart the true message of Islam.
What does Al Furqan mean?
Al Furqan takes its name from the 25th chapter of the Holy Quran called Surah Al-Furqan which translates as “The Criterion”. More generally, Al-Furqan means evidence or proof and thus the name fittingly represents our vision and methodology born out of the sources of Islam
Who’s behind this?
We’re run by a small dedicated team of trustees supported by an active community of volunteers from a diverse range of backgrounds. See our volunteers page for profiles.
Where is Al Furqan based?
Until we secure a permanent home, Jummah and Taraweeh prayers are held at Fleetville Community Centre in St Albans. Al Furqan Saturday School rents the premises of the local primary school on Camp Road.
How can I get involved?
