Every bit counts, so please help make a difference today. Make a donation...

Please help us in realising our vision and be part of this innovative project working for the future generations of Scottish Muslims.

Your donations no matter how small are dear to us and we pray that God rewards you generously in this life and the next.
 
Our vision is to create a Beacon Institute and Community Hub. We are working towards breaking barriers and community integration by promoting understanding and sharing the rich and diverse Muslim cultural tradition, and at the same time embracing our Scottish roots.
 
Our motto is the same motto that was placed above the entrance to the major universities of Andalusia during the Muslim era:
 
 “The world is held by four pillars:
 the wisdom of the learned,
 the justice of the great,
 the prayers of the righteous,
 and the valour of the brave."
 
Our current work includes an imaginative Arabic playgroup for pre-school children, an educational mother and toddlers group, Arabic language and Qur'anic recitation classes for over 200 adults and children, a creative arts and crafts project, Calligraphy workshops and a youth character development project based on sports called the Rihla.

Andalus was founded in Glasgow, January 2000.
