Introducing ACJU (Part IV) - Council for Cooperation and Coordination (CCC)  
Furthering the ACJU's role in community service, this committee focuses on humanitarian values and exists to foster and grow the unity and co-existence the Muslim and non-Muslim community has enjoyed for over a thousand years. The committee brings together various actors in the community including Da'wah Organizations and the Tharīqās (sects), within the Islamic principles, as well as the non-Islamic communities, by taking effective steps to create and promote mutual understanding, unity, peace, cooperation, and peaceful co-existence.

In its broader mandate the CCC focuses on fostering intercommunity relations by means of dialogue, discussion and conventions, providing guidance to the public on harmony and co-existence through the Friday (Jumu'ah) Sermons, supporting Schools and Universities in building social unity, and supporting the propaganda unit in creating and issuing publications.

Going forward, the CCC seeks to establish representative committees at Masjid level; comprising Masjid and ACJU representatives, Aalims of Islamic Organizations, Professionals, Intellectuals, Journalists and Social workers. The same idea is to be carried out at the National and International Level with committees to be established comprising key members of the Community. The committee intends to draw on the collective guidance and advice of these committees when planning and implementing strategic action.

Ash Sheikh Abdur Rahmaan is the Coordinator for the ACJU Council for Cooperation and Coordination. He could be contacted via  E Mail: or via the Hotline 0117 490 490.
