SHAFAQNA -Â Mohammed Kozbar, who is the chairman of Finsbury Park Mosque, said: â€œWe and the Muslim Council of Britain, our mosque and many other mosques, we are encouraging the community to try to help refugee families who arrive to the UK.â€
He added that memberâ€™s of Islingtonâ€™s Muslim community will be on hand to offer other means to help to refugees arriving in the country.
â€œThere are many ways of helping them,â€ he said.
â€œWe can accommodate them in our houses or provide them with refreshments, food and clothes. Ideally, we want members of the community to take people in.â€
On Friday, September 4, the mosque raised a total of Â£7,000 for Human Appeal, a charity whose refugee crisis emergency appeal is targeted at helping people fleeing from their homeland of Syria.
Mr Kozabar said: â€œWe raised the money for the refugees after first prayers. We raised that much money in only an hour.â€
The moqsue leader added: â€œWe have to fulfil our responsibility as human beings.â€
