About this Event

Celebrate Eid at the RICS with us.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting, and is celebrated during the first three days of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is a global professional body for those working in the Built Environment, Construction, Land, Property, and Real Estate (the industry), founded in London in 1868.

The AMSi (Association of Muslim Surveyors Initiative) came about last year, to mark Eid the RICS offered to host the first event which was a success drawing people with interest in the industry, Arab News wrote an article: https://www.arabnews.com/node/2297811/world.

AMSi has simple aims:

  • To pave the way into professional real estate institutions and organisations.
  • To raise awareness of the professions in communities, particularly Muslim, as the role of a surveyor is not known.
  • To create a platform that is for everyone, Muslim and non-Muslim.

We also aim to build bridges in society by developing an understanding of each other, and over the past year, we have welcomed the support of sister organisations and partners who are welcome to come and share what they do at our event.

Last year we delivered four events, two in the RICS and two in London's mosques.

This will be our fifth event, we hope this will be a happy and light occasion, albeit like all our events it will be a simple event as we are an unfunded initiative, therefore if anything is lacking, please be prepared to help.

During the evening there will be a short talk on Ramadan and Eid, the RICS will talk about their organisation and you get to hear from their Board Members, there will be an update on AMSi.

Last year we inspired the formation of the Quantity Surveyors of Bangladesh, by doing these events we hope others do the same, we aim to keep what we do simple.

The Quantity Surveyors Group of Pakistan joined our July event, Muslim in Rail UK as well, also the CUBE network and the Muslim Council of Britain joined a mosque event, invited we will join them as well, although we cannot go to everything ourselves.

The evening is an opportunity to look around the RICS HQ in Westminster, London, and network, drinks (non-alcoholic) and snacks will be served, it is an opportunity for many Real Estate young people's Muslim and non-Muslim networks, and university students.

We are not a charity, and we are not run on grant funding.

Should you wish to share or offer any material, such as Eid decorations or food, or something for a goodie bag, please message, last year a few young women offered to do henna for sisters, but they did not do this in the end, it was a nice offer.

We thank the RICS for hosting the event again, this is a good opportunity for existing members and new communities to come together.

After we platformed Adewole Ademolake, MRICS at our first event, the RICS invited him back to talk at a "Welcome to the Profession Event" and he made this YouTube video:

, we hope it inspires you.

We are pleased we can platform young unknown talent from diverse communities, people who would not ordinarily be seen, we also draw out stories from a few hidden elders.

This will be a public event people may take photos or make videos, we cannot be responsible if you are in them, we will do this too and may use material we gather for marketing, the RICS will as well, and we will share the attendee list with them confidentially for name badge purposes.

Should you have any questions, kindly contact Sarah Chaudhry MBA FRICS, Director, Surveyor Store Ltd, 07521 085400, WhatsApp any questions if easier, please say who you are and state your question clearly, or email: [email protected].

We look forward to seeing you at the event, we will order tea, coffee, and drinks only for the number of people who book by Friday 12 April 2024.
