The Gateway to Divine Mercy Project is the latest initiative launched by the Al-Karam Scholars Association (AKSA
) in partnership with Jamia Al-Karam. The project aspires to involve the youth of today in a productive and beneficial manner so that the true teachings of the faith of the beloved Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him,
can flourish in the near and distant future.
The Creator of all, Allah (most high
), has stated in the glorious Qur’an, “.. do not despair of the mercy of Allah ..”
(Qur’an 39:53). This divine verse provides the premise for positive thinking. Concerning the beloved Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him
, Allah (most high) has declared, “And We have not sent you, except as a mercy to all the worlds.”
(Qur’an 21:107). Furthermore, Allah (most high) has announced that “.. the mercy of Allah is closer to the good-doers
.” (Qur’an 7:56).
As a result of the above divine verses, the project is called Gateway to Divine Mercy for it does not despair of the mercy of Allah (most high), it seeks the love of the true embodiment of divine mercy, the beloved Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him
, and it aims to promote righteousness and the doing of good. May Allah (most high) accept these efforts. Amin.
After the remarkable success of the previous two Gateway to Divine Mercy events held in Manchester in June 2006 and July 2007, AKSA in partnership with Jamia Al-Karam coordinated “Gateway to Divine Mercy - Awakening our Souls” which was held on 29th June 2008. It once again proved to be a highly successful and informative event in which shuyukh, imams, scholars and nasheed artists from all over the world participated.
