The Muath Trust – Digital Inclusion Programme (DIP)

The Muath Trust in partnership with Hall Green NNS are addressing the challenges faced by the Digital Divide through an exciting Digital Inclusion Programme. The aim of this Project is to help individuals aged 50 and over, benefit from getting online within the Hall Green Constituency, areas include: Balsall Heath, Hall Green, Kings Heath, Moseley, Sparkhill and Sparkbrook.
Do you have a digital device in good working condition, such as a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or a smart phone that you could donate to our Digital Inclusion Programme for reuse?

We will clear existing data on all received devices before offering them to those who cannot afford to buy a device. Where required, appropriate support and training will be provided for individual device recipients to help them get online.

Your donated device can:
• Help someone isolated to contact family and friends
• Help people with job search online
• Enable someone to access essential online services

If you would like to donate a digital device or have any questions with regards to our Digital Inclusion Programme then please telephone: 0121 753 0297 (Mon – Fri, during office hours) or email: support@muathtrust.org

AAS Students Achieve the Highest Grades at GCSE

The Amanah Arabic School students achieved the highest grades at the GCSE Arabic examination despite all the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic this year.

Out of a total of 25 students, from the School and external candidates who were due to sit their exams this summer, all candidates achieved grades between 9 – 7 which are equivalent to A* – A.

So 100% of the candidates have achieved the highest grades possible, which is an incredible achievement. Compared to last year where the pass rate was 100% and 96% had achievend grades A* – A.

We congratulate the students, their parents and the teachers on this success.

Amanah Arabic & Tahfeeth Schools Complete Academic Year

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Trust decided to close all schools in mid-March 2020 with a view to protect the health and wellbeing of children and staff. The lockdown and the worsening crisis meant the chances of resuming normal classes during this academic year were extremely bleak.

The Schools decided to explore all ways to continue to teach children during this challenging time remotely. Staff, students and parents all took up the challenge and managed to ensure that the children completed the year by making all the necessary arrangements. A few highlights:

– Rayan Omar Shayar (15 years) and Maryam Abu Saeeda (12 years) two Tahfeedh School girls completed the Qur’an memorisation during this period.
– A parent commented: ‘I would like to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to the teachers and administrators of the Amanah Arabic School for their hard work and efforts in continuing our children’s education during this difficult time’.

Obituary: Sheikh Dr Bustami Mohammad Khir

We deeply mourn today the passing of our beloved teacher Sheikh Dr Bustami Khir who returned to His Lord. We are from Allah and to Him is our return.

Dr Bustami was a longstanding member of the Muath Trust Management Committee and had retired as Senior Lecturer in Islamic Studies, University of Birmingham. He had previously taught in King Saud University, Madinah University and the University of Edinburgh. After retirement he remained active in the community and continued to make significant contributions to various organisations, institutions and groups. There are numerous people who have benefited from his knowledge, experience and wisdom in the community as he touched the lives of many.

May Allah forgive Dr Bustami his shortcomings, have mercy on him and enter him in the highest place in Paradise. May Allah accept him in the company of the believers, the truthful and the pious. We offer our deepest condolences to the family and pray that Allah grants them patience to bear this loss.

Obituary: Alhaj Hizam Fayed Al-Shameeri (1925-2020)

We are from Allah and to Him is our return.

With deepest of sadness we mourn today the passing of Alhaj Hizam Fayed Al-Shameeri, one of the founders of the Amanah Arabic Schools and the most beloved pillars of our community. A’mana {our Uncle) Hizam, as he was commonly known, touched the lives of many people who came to the Muath Trust: students, staff, teachers and parents. We could never forget his infectious smile and his perfume that he would always wear.

A’mana Hizam was associated with the Arabic School since the early 1980s. He then participated in the establishment of the Yemeni Educational Institute in 1983 and went on to be an Advisor and Supervisor of the Amanah Arabic Schools. He continued to work with School until 4 years ago when he had to stop due to health reasons. However he would continue to visit and bring along with him traditional coffee and snacks in order to spend time with the teachers and staff.

We pray that Allah Almighty forgive A’mana Hizam his shortcomings and grant him the highest place in Jannah.
