BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER
Celebrating Muslim achievement and promoting diversity
Islam Channel is at the heart of the global Muslim community, hosting a range of events that have brought hundreds of thousands of people together to celebrate Muslim achievement, promote equality and diversity and counter anti-Muslim sentiment. Our events include the Global Peace & Unity (GPU) Festival, the largest Muslim and interfaith event of its kind, which attracted up to 100,000 attendees including prominent world leaders. In 2019, we launched the IC Business Awards, rewarding excellence in business amongst the thriving British Muslim business community.
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Over £150 million raised to date
There is a strong tradition of giving within the Muslim community and Islam Channel viewers are exceptionally generous. In 2020 the Islam Channel Giving website and app were launched to provide a way for our viewers to give direct to our recognised charities. All donations go direct to the charities and participation is provided free of charge by Islam Channel to its charity partners.
Via cable, satellite and digital
In the UK we can be found on Sky 737, Virgin 838 and Freeview 264. We also broadcast on a number of international cable and satellite platforms, such as DSTV in Africa. Islam Channel can be viewed worldwide through our 24/7 live stream on our website and has a strong digital media presence.
