The project also forms part of the association’s national tree planting initiative that it is running in conjunction with the Woodland Trust.

Saeed Nazir, local youth leader for the AMYA, said: “Events such as these help to promote good community relations and offer us an opportunity to contribute positively towards this great country."

He added: “The Prophet Muhammad, who was a mercy for mankind, was particular about protecting the environment and planting trees and flowers. It is his noble example which is the inspiration behind this initiative.''
