Safety Advice For Students

Posted on 26 Aug 2013 In: Security Thoughts

1 in 10 students become victims of crime in Manchester, or 1 in 3 students in London. In fact, there is not enough awareness about safety and security in the UK as compared to the US, for instance. Yet it is high time that students are concerned with this matter to avoid being one of those unfortunate victims. It has also been found that most students have a fear of burglary above all crimes. Their fear is justified as burglars do indeed target students mostly because of the chance of a higher return for the encountered risks. In other words, they are most likely to break into a student’s residence and escape with a huge prize in the form of a costly gadget such as a laptop or a mobile phone. After all, students own more expensive consumer goods than the rest of the population. This is enough to tempt burglars. Moreover, some areas tend to have a high concentration of students residences, including Leicester, such that it becomes an easy hotspot for burglars. The following guidelines could be useful to deter such criminals, and to avoid the emotional experience in addition to the financial consequence of a burglary:

Donating Safely in Ramadan

Posted on 15 Jul 2013 In: Security Thoughts

a reminder of donating safely in Ramadan to muslims in UK and around the world

Indeed, “The best charity is that given in Ramadan”, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said. It is the month where most Muslims strive even more to perform good actions, in addition to the daily prayers and fasting. Zakat, that is, obligatory charity, should be given in a certain way that our left hand doesn’t know what our right hand has spent. Since it is said that charity should be done almost secretly, there are unfortunately higher risks of the charity ending up as something else. In fact, many would not dare refuse to contribute to a charity fundraiser, including door-to-door fundraising. Therefore, only 2 in 5 donors make checks before donating, which leads to vital funds being misdirected to fake collections rather than to deserving charities, as mentioned by the Chief Executive of the Charity Commission. Hence, any donor should be equally well aware of the security involved in this generous act.

If you seem to think that lower crime figures equal zero risk…Think again! Certainly, optimistic tidings about the falling burglary trend in the UK may persuade you to let your guard down. Unfortunately, that improving rate does not really mean that burglars have altogether disappeared from the area. As a result, some citizens are still falling prey to obstinate and opportunistic burglars who regrettably do not form part of the 9% decline.

As a burglary victim, it is inevitable to be both financially and emotionally affected. Dealing with the after effects of a break-in requires poise and patience. The following tips may be helpful in these situations.
