Supporting children with SEND in our community

We interviewed the founder of Muslim Stars: an innovative approach to inviting children with Special Education Needs and Disabilities (who we prefer to call People of Determination) into the mosque which has spread to multiple spaces. We spoke about being the mother of an amazing child with Downs Syndrome and the importance of being willing to start things ourselves instead of waiting for others to do so.

“Their association with masjid is positive… now they can be themselves. We’ve got that safe space alhammdulilah…find a community that celebrates your child. If something makes you feel uncomfortable – your child will feel uncomfortable. Educate others that this child is your means to Jannah.”
