Follow the epic journey of eight Muslims cycling from London to Madina for Hajj

Eight British Muslims set off from East London Mosque three weeks ago in an epic journey on their bicycles to the holy city of Madina for the Hajj pilgrimage. 

The #HajjRide campaign is the first London to Madina charity cycling challenge in history.

Cyclists have partnered with Human Aid UK to raise £1,000,000 for the people of war-torn Syria.

Follow the inspiring journey of the Hajj Riders by watching and sharing their vlogs on social media with friends and families.

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]
