Staff and service users from The Salvation Army’s Strathmore Lodge Lifehouse in Dundee were guests of honour at a curry evening in the centre kindly prepared by young volunteers from the Yusuf Youth Initiative (YYI).

More than nine volunteers spent hours cooking a special Indian meal as part of their ‘taught by Muhammad campaign’ to aimed at fostering good relations between the Muslim and non-Muslim community.. 

Aamna Naseem, one of the volunteers, said: “When we started this project, we asked the young Muslims who their greatest role model was. They all said it was the Prophet Muhammad, but also acknowledged that he was the most misunderstood person. This project will help us show the world who Muhammad really was.”

Malcolm Page, The Salvation Army's assistant regional manager for homelessness services in Scotland, said: “This is a fantastic random act of kindness, we are truly humbled when people give up their own time to come and support the homeless community in Dundee. We’ve had a great evening and learned a little more about each other in a very relaxed way.”
