Members of this Muslim Youth Association took to streets early morning for New Year’s Day clean-up
When a majority of New Year’s revelers were still in bed after night-long celebrations, over 1,000 young members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) in the UK were hosting a special new year prayer early in the morning after which they set off to clean up the aftermath of the previous night’s partying, garbage bags in their hands.
“From Luton to London, Glasgow to Guilford, Cardiff to Croydon, across the entire country 1,000 members of AMYA participated in the New Year’s Day clean up,” said British Ahmadiyya Imam Qamar Zafar.
“Islam urges every Muslim to partake in charitable giving, community service, and promote cleanliness,” he added. “AMYA has and continues to instill young people with a sense of civic responsibility, and a desire to promote harmony within our local communities.”
