Ramadan Prisoners Project

£

"O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it” (Al-Tirmidhi)

As Muslims fast this Ramadan and enjoy the heightened sense of spirituality the month brings, it is important to remember not all Muslims enjoy the same freedoms.

Prison is geared to be a time to reflect. Ramadan is an even greater opportunity for Muslim prisoners to strengthen their path to goodness. As part of our UK Development Programme we launched the Prisoners Project in 2012 to help ease prisoner's journey to reform.

This includes providing prisoners with the tools to practice their faith with ease. From providing prayer mats to Islamic literature, these simple resources will help our brothers and sisters with their rehabilitation during Ramadan.

Our Prisoners Project was a resounding success last year. With the support of our donors, we reached out to 9364 prisoners across London the West Midlands and Wales. The campaign held a strong sentiment amongst our supporters. It showed us here at Muslim Aid of their unwavering compassion and further encouraged us to work even harder for our 2016 campaign, in order to reach more this year.

Muslims are tremendously overrepresented in the UK prison population. There are currently 12,160 (11,939 Males and 221 Females) Muslim prisoners in England and Wales. In London 14% (2583) of the Prison population is Muslim. Nationwide, the Muslim prison population has grown by a momentous 122% since 2002 while the total prison population increased by 20% (BBC). Sadly, these numbers continuously increase yearly.

This year, Muslim Aid aims to assist Muslim prisoners by providing essential material that will help them cope and feel less isolated. This is based on the fact that prisoners have demonstrated how Ramadan and community support helped them to cope with prison life, display less aggression and develop self-discipline around prayer, ablution and recitation of the Qur'an.

With your support, we can help a prisoner feel less isolated. By donating to a prisoner’s pack you can help them make their transition from prison life to the outside world that much easier.
