I feel MAB’s greatest achievement since its inception, is the day Allah made Muslim activists come together to form the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) in order to build a society and create hope. This historical date deserves a huge celebration because it was a great victory, which laid the foundations for other great achievements.

It was a move to help mosques and Islamic centres open its doors to the wider public, not just Muslims alone. Since then, with the constant and tireless help of the MAB, mosques have been promoting the accepted understanding of Islam.

These small efforts are unheralded and go unnoticed. Finally, I would like to personally thank MAB for aspiring to make Muslims best.
