Muslim Aid to appoint new trustees and publish new constitution

Muslim Aid will appoint new trustees, become a charitable incorporated organisation, and put a new constitution in place to resolve issues being investigated by the Charity Commission.

The Charity Commission opened a statutory inquiry into the charity in 2013 and appointed an interim manager, Jehangir Malik, last October.

TPP Recruitment has now been appointed to find six new trustees, including a chair and treasurer.

Jehangir Malik became Muslim Aid chief executive last September. He was previously chief executive at Islamic Relief for over 20 years.

In October Michael King of Stone King was appointed as interim manager to review the governance infrastructure, as well as the financial controls in relation to its domestic and international operations.

The Charity Commission opened an inquiry in 2013 after the charity notified the regulator of non-compliance with some operational aspects in two field offices.

As you’re here…

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
