  • Alhamdullilah, with perseverance & hard work, application was approved in November 2004
  • In 1997, bought a house for GBP165,000 raised from donations since 1982
  • Since then, have spend over GBP 30,000 in extension and renovation works
  • They have small Muslim community of over 70 families and 250 University students
  • Premises too small to accomodate the Jum'ah congregation and hence need to raise more money to build a two-storey extension
  • Cost of this work will be GBP 150,000
  • To date, have received GBP 70,000 and received a pledge of GBP 30,000 as interest-free loan and still in need of GBP50,000 for the work to begin
If anyone wants to donate, they can:

(1) By Cheque:

A lil something from Bahapa Kitani to share with all :
  • Allah Ta’ala berfirman, “Perumpamaan (nafkah yang dikeluarkan oleh) orang-orang yang menafkahkan hartanya di jalan Allah adalah serupa dengan sebutir benih yang menumbuhkan tujuh bulir, pada tiap-tiap bulir seratus biji. Allah melipatgandakan (ganjaran) bagi siapa yang Dia kehendaki. Dan Allah maha luas (kurnia-Nya) lagi maha mengetahui”. {Al Baqarah (2) : 261}
  • Dari Abu Hurairah RA, bahwa sesungguhnya Rasulullah SAW, telah bersabda: “Bila seorang hamba telah meninggal, segala amalnya terputus, kecuali tiga hal : amal jariyah, ilmu yang bermanfaat atau anak salih yang mendo’akannya” (HR. Bukhari, dalam Adabul Mufrad)
  • Antara Sadaqah Jariah di mana kebaikannya tidak berakhir ialah melibatkan diri dalam pembangunan masjid
