Community Activities 

Community Activities

Apart from the structured learning Al-Meezan offers a wide variety of community services to support learners and the wider community.

Sakina - Ladies Group

A friendship group for the over 55s


Sakina group is a warm and friendly place, open to over 55s ladies looking for some time to relax, meet other like minded ladies and enjoy some Gup shup in an Islamic environment.


The group begins with some collective Quranic recitation for around half an hour aiming to complete a reading of the whole Quran in a yearly session.


This is followed by some gentle exercise promoting flexibility and general fitness.


Regular activities include knitting, gardening, painting, Arabic calligraphy and whatever else our participants suggest.


We have a number of annual day trips to various locations. In the past ladies have enjoyed trips to Loch Lomond, Botanic Gardens, Calderglen Country Park, Edinburgh (Dynamic Earth) and Hidden Gardens - to name a few!


Participants bring their own lunch or a shareable lunch for the group to enjoy. Everyone loves to taste each others recipes.
