Inside a Teesside mosque and how its members work to support the local community

Farhan Ali and Tahir Selby

Teesside is home to a wide variety of cultures and religions and many aren’t always aware of the different work religious groups carry out in the hopes of bettering the whole community.

From supporting food banks and delivering meals to those unable to leave their homes, to raising funds for the annual Poppy Appeal and visiting the world’s most deprived nations to off their support, we speak to members of Hartlepool’s Nasir Mosque to find out more about the voluntary work of members. Farhan Ali, who is outreach secretary and in charge of external affairs at the mosque, and regional missionary Tahir Selby have discussed the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association’s long history of helping other.

Committed to engaging with communities and working for the common good, the association has raised millions of pounds for a huge variety of British charities, regardless of religion, as they try to unite all and break down barriers. It’s all part of Nasir Mosque’s work hard to spread their message of ‘love for all, hatred for none.’
