Al-Asr was established in 1985 as a scholastic research institution. This charitable organisation is based in London and headed by Maulana S. M. S. Sabzwary. Al-Asr is committed to promoting education in religious, social, moral and cultural values within society.
The objectives of Al-Asr are to establish scholastic and research institutions, conduct educational seminars, publish literature, arrange educational tours abroad and support other charitable institutions.
Our philosophy is to learn about Islam and to unite the people by propagating Islam in accordance with the traditions of the Prophet (pbuh) and his family without causing offense.
We invite non-Muslims to Islam, protect and promote Islam, and provide guidance in pilgrimage to holy sites. Al-Asr supports mosques, Muslim Centers and Supplementary Islamic Schools. We provide a flow of charity to the deprived, youth and study circles, marriage guidance, training skills, exhibitions, awareness of drugs, solving adolescent problems, lecture on current issues and cultural activities.
