ICC Remembers Educationalist Mr. Nazar Mustafa

Mr. Nazar Mustafa was born on the 25th October 1929, in the Nizam's state of Hyderabad, India.

Since his arrival to London in 1956, The Islamic Cultural Centre has been an integral part of his life. In those days there were only a handful of people praying in a tent which was the extent of the salatul Jumah.

He started his professional life as a teacher and was appointed as head of geography at a school in Clapham, South West London, the first non-Caucasian head of department in the UK. His ambition led him to leave teaching and he entered the Inner London Education Authority, as a School Inspector.

He founded the Sunday school (Madrasa) at London Central Mosque for all children. He strived for introducing halal food in schools across the UK, religious education, and in some schools profession for Imams to take the Jumah prayers. He promoted multi-ethnic education and worked tirelessly with all faith leaders to promote understanding, respect and tolerance for all faiths.

He was the founder member of the MECC (Muslim Education Co-ordinating Council).

His Services to education for all earned him the M.B.E., which was presented to him by her late Majesty in 1998. After almost 50 years of service to the London Central Mosque.

He passed away peacefully on Tuesday 16th of January and we ask Allah (swt) to shower His mercy and forgive him for any sins. We express our condolences from the Centre and the community.
