The History

Launched in 2014 RamadanFM was an initiative that initially began with the intention of providing the local Muslim residents of the London Borough of Newham with spiritual and educational entertainment during the holy month of Ramadan. Along with networking with other influential organisations, we aimed at providing the youth within the community a platform to showcase their talent and the opportunity to voice their opinion whilst benefiting from experience and mentoring of some of the senior volunteers of RamadanFM. By the end of Ramadan that year it was clear that this was the beginning of a journey and that the project would gain momentum with the passing of time. The success of RamadanFM2014 exceeded expectations with scores of volunteers joining the team. People from all backgrounds played a huge part in making RamadanFM2014 a success and from that year on RamadanFM became an annual project. Subsequent years saw RamadanFM go from strength to strength. With the launch of Minhaj Productions in 2017 and it’s support, RamadanFM2017 delivered all the shows on Facebook live with promotional video produced for all the shows. This gave the project a new dimension and further increased the voluntary workforce. The experience the team had acquired in running a radio station for four years provided us with the confidence and passion to apply for a full time FM license to Ofcom and it was in the summer of 2017 that the application was approved, granting us the license to broadcast on the FM frequency throughout the year.

By the blessing of Allah (SWT) and mercy of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and the hard work of the RamadanFM team, it is with the greatest pleasure we announce the the awarding of an FM radio license for Community Radio. . Ofcom invited applications within the M25 area which had to be submitted by October 2016. Minhaj ul Quran, International, London, the organisation behind RamadanFM made the decision to also apply. There were close to thirty organisations that submitted the application with only four licenses being granted. This community radio license means that we will be able to broadcast on the FM frequency. Our primary area of reach via this medium is the London Borough of Newham which is one of the most densely and diverse areas in the UK. With an approximate coverage area of 6 mile radius, the transmission will be picked up in large parts of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets, Redbridge and Barking and Dagenham. We would like to thank everyone that supported us through the application stage and the volunteers that worked tirelessly to make our previous radio projects successful.
