With the great blessings of Allaah upon our community, we were able to raise, last Ramadhaan (1436) and up until now, enough funds to accomplish Phase 1 and Phase 2 of this noble project.
We are now turning once again to our noble brothers and sisters this Ramadhaan (1437), to help us to raise the final £200,000 to start and complete phase 3.
As is narrated on the authority of: Umar bin Al-Khattab who said
I heard the Messenger of Allaah (sallalahu Alayhi wa salam) say: ‘Whoever builds a masjid (mosque) in which the Name of Allaah is mentioned, Allaah will build a house for him in Paradise.
This is an excellent opportunity for all of us to gain closeness to Allāh by way of donating and encouraging others to donate.
Imagine the reward that an individual will receive for participating in the establishment of a Masjid where the following are performed:
》5 Daily congregational prayers are established.
》Recitation of the Qur’an.
》Children and adults learn how to recite the Book of Allaah correctly.
》 Gatherings of knowledge.
And much more!
We ask Allah for a portion of this great reward.
To that end, my Brothers and Sisters, we have devised a strategic plan which we feel will enable us to achieve our goal in funding this final phase.
We have launched our Ramadhān ‘BUY A BRICK’ campaign.
We encourage all of you, your families and your friends to buy a brick ranging from £50 to £10,000.
Increase your reward significantly by giving to the masjid in this blessed month.
Giving in charity on behalf of your deceased parents.
‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) reported that a man said to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “My mother has passed away, and if she could have spoken, she would have given something in charity. Will she receive a reward if I give something on her behalf?” He said, “Yes.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, Fath, 1388)
Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) reported that the mother of Sa’d ibn ‘Ubaadah (may Allaah be pleased with him and his father) died when he was away from her. He said: “O Messenger of Allaah, my mother has died and I am away from her. Will it benefit her anything if I give in charity on her behalf?” He said, “Yes.” He said, “Then I ask you to be my witness that I am giving my garden al-Mikhraaf (so called because it bore so many dates) in charity on her behalf.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, Fath, 2756)
Abu Hurayrah reported that a man said to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “My father has died and left money behind. He did not make a wasiyyah (a will); will it expiate for his sins if I give some of it in charity on his behalf?” He said, “Yes.” (Reported by al-Nisaa’i)
