Appeal for the Masjid Running Costs, Bills and Rent
Asalamualaikum wa rahamtullahi wa barakaatuhu. We pray you are all well and in the best of eemaan. By the permission of Allah we have managed to accomplish a lot at the masjid over the summer. However the work done has taken its toll on finances; as we raised less than was needed (by etimation) in the end for the work outside; as well as had to pay for secondary unforeseen things such as clean up labour time and secondary items not priced into work.
The masjid currently runs a lot of activities for everyone; and employs a lot of people – brothers and sisters. We also do not charge very much so we are always often at just break even in terms of our finance; whereby the wages for the staff (Quran School, Saturday School and more) are just about covered; and sometimes not met.
As a result we rely on the good nature of the people to assist the masjid in the rest of its efforts. Usually this balances out; however currently the masjid is making a loss whereby we have had to borrow small funds from brothers to keep the masjid running and to complete the work.
Therefore we are appealing to everyone if they can help us plug this shortfall in two ways. The first one is the urgent need of £6000 which we need for our rent and to pay back what we’ve borrowed.
However long term, to avoid such issues, what would really help is a regular donation if possible, by everyone who can give something for the sake of Allah. If you can set up a standing order from your online or telephone bank of just five pounds a month this would help us massively. Our dawa here has always been a collective effort and we pray that this is an excellent opportunity to gain yet more reward and salvation from Allah azza wajal. £5 a month isn’t too much, working out to less than £1.25 a week. And this would fall in line with the hadeeth of the Prophet Salalaahu Alayhi wa Salam which was narrated by Abu Hurrairah that he Salalaahu Alayhi wa Salam said “Take on only as much as you can of good deeds, for the best of deeds is that which is done consistently, even if it is little”
So please take a few minutes of your time to do this and then forget it and let the deeds pile up biidhnillah.
And the reward is with Allah
