Abu Zahra Foundation was established in June 2001 to meet the educational needs of the Muslim community in Keighley and its surrounding localities.
The Foundation provides a beautiful place for worship in the heart of the Muslim community, for men, women, and children and also facilitates religious instruction in the traditional Islamic Sciences in a way that is relevant to Muslims living in the West.
These communities have developed, young men and women have often felt frustrated that they have been unable to participate in the running of the community and shape its future. Abu Zahra Foundation has been instrumental in providing second and third-generation Muslims space to provide relevant and effective educational programs to ensure we can engage with young people, win over their hearts and minds, and deliver the eternal message of Islam.
The core work involves providing religious instruction in the traditional Islamic Sciences for children and adults in a way that is relevant to Muslims living in the West.
The Foundation is committed to the curriculum as it was found in the great teaching institutions of the Islamic Civilisation and an understating of Islam, which has been transmitted in an unbroken chain from the Prophet (peace be upon him) to our living scholars of Sunnah and Jama’
