Islam Awareness & Education Centre

Ar-Rahmah Academy is based in Chorley, Lancashire.

Chorley is a small market town with a population of approximately 50,000. There are some 200 Muslim households, mainly from the Indian sub-continent and also some from the Middle-East. The academy was established in 2004 under the auspices of the eminent scholar, Sheikh Muhammad Saleem Dhorat (hafizahullahu). The aim of the Academy is to engender a better understanding and awareness of the teachings of Islam amongst the general community.

In the initial stages, the earliest activities of the academy were carried out in local houses. Within three years of the establishing the Academy, there was an increasing demand from the community for the services the Academy was offering. The local houses were now no longer suitable, and moving to larger premises became imperative. And so in 2008, to meet these growing needs of the community and to expand the work of the Academy, a suitable property was purchased.

Our Appeal

To render and further the services of the Academy, a suitable property was purchased. The property was renovated to comply with building regulations. By the Grace of Allah, the Academy now serves all sections of the Muslim community through various activities.
