Appeal 2018 – Help Fund the New Playground Project!

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Asalaamualaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu

UPDATE: 31-08-2018: Work Well Underway.

Many parts of this project have been completed. We will post images on this page.

 


UPDATE: 31-06-2018: Funds Raised!

Alhamdulilah we have raised all the funds needed and work will commence in the Summer Holiday.


UPDATE: 31-05-2018

Alhamdulilah we have just passed the half way point in this blessed month. Firstly we wanted to thank everyone for all that they have given in Charity; to help develop the masjid – both here in Manchester as well as throughout the UK (Masjid as Sunnah Aston, Masjid Furqan Stoke, Masjid Al Huda Bolton, etc) and beyond! We make dua that our sins are forgiven and deeds multiplied. It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah said: ‘Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you.’” (1)

However there’s still more to do. And we can really make a big difference for so many people within the community by donating even small amounts. The Messenger of Allah (Salalhualayhiwasallam) said: “A Muslim is a brother of (another) Muslim, he neither wrongs him nor does hand him over to one who does him wrong. If anyone fulfils his brother’s needs, Allah will fulfil his needs; if one relieves a Muslim of his troubles, Allah will relieve his troubles on the Day of Resurrection…” [Bukhari and Muslim].

Here in Manchester by the grace of Allah, we have established facilities for the children in our community. We have facilities on site for Quran- including a dedicated hifdh class- Arabic learning and Islamic Studies. The children learn every aspect we can possibly teach them: Belief, Tawheed, Salah, Wudhu, Manhaj, Fasting, Ibaadah, Dua and Adhkaar and more. In addition to this we have a Tuition Club which takes a huge burden off home schooling parents; by providing a good basis in all subjects: Maths, English, Science, Programming, Art, Geography and more!

As any parent will relate to; caring for the children and ensuring their tarbiyyah is correct is something difficult and in some instances worrying. Our children come form many backgrounds – and we try our best to provide them with a safe place to learn and grow. Abdullah ibn Umar reported: The Messenger of Allah, Salalhualayhiwasallam, said, “Every one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock. The leader of people is a guardian and is responsible for his subjects. A man is the guardian of his family and he is responsible for them. A woman is the guardian of her husband’s home and his children and she is responsible for them. The servant of a man is a guardian of the property of his master and he is responsible for it. No doubt, every one of you is a shepherd and is responsible for his flock.”

Our aim is as always, to provide an even better facility… and to give all of our children the chance to learn and experience new things and in turn appreciate the wonderful creation of Allah, and grow up as rounded individuals.

With this in mind we wanted to build our areas where the children can learn, have classes, exercise and play. The masjid has a fence around it now, so we can develop our garden and grass area more safely.

Side of the masjid that will be used fo rthe outdoor classroom, Eco Garden and Plantery

The portfolio explains the full concept in detail- but in brief we would have 3 areas, which would be excavated and soft play area flooring installed. Then we would have a young learners educational development area, a large playground with exercise and sports facility and finally a science and discovery facility- including an area to grow plants, herbs and small trees. This would only serve to increase our facilities and provide and amazing environment for the children that attend.

However doing all so requires a lot of financial outlay; which we cannot afford. We had a target of £18,000 and at the time of writing we only require £3800 more to reach it, alhamdulilah.

So we’ve launched this graphic to help encourage us all to give even small amounts to this beneficial project.

Our children are our inheritors and have rights on us. Providing good facilities will alleviate some of this difficulty on many parents within the community. In total we have 170 children that attend Saturday School, 160 that attend Quran Classes and 70 that attend and use the Tuition Club. Your money will be bring an ongoing benefit, and the reward will be ongoing inshaAllah. As the Prophet (Salalhualayhiwasallam) said: “When a person dies, all his deeds come to an end except three: sadaqah jaariyah (ongoing charity, e.g. a waqf or endowment), beneficial knowledge (which he has left behind), or a righteous child who will pray for him.” (3)

So not only will these facilities be used by children now and afterwards; but those whose children attend will appreciate their parents and we pray with good tarbiyyah they will duplicate for them.

So please do not delay and give today, to establish these and other educational facilities for children. The fruits are great and reach into the future… don’t miss out on that reward:

As Allah says: “Who is he that will lend to Allah a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times? And it is Allah that decreases or increases (your provisions), and unto Him you shall return.” (Baqarah 245)

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “There is no day on which the people get up but two angels come down and one of them says, ‘O Allaah, give in compensation to the one who spends (in charity),’ and the other says, ‘O Allaah, destroy the one who withholds.’” (4)

ANNOUNCING New Masjid Playground Project!

We pray this message finds you well and in the highest of eemaan.

This Summer we are raising funds for a young learners playground and an eco-friendly garden. This project will benefit our students at both The Tuition Club and Salafi School, as well as masjid attendees. 

Why Donate to Our Appeal?

  • Outdoor play includes social, physical, mental and self-confidence benefits.
  • Playing outside also helps children to develop their learning abilities.
  • A fun way of helping them learn new information and develop their skills.
  • It will encourage children to think of learning as an ongoing process, instead of just something done in the classroom.
  • Having the eco-friendly garden space will give us the opportunity to grow our own fruit, vegetables and flowers.
  • Children will have a sense of responsibility and it will instil within them the need to look after the environment and what they grow.
  • Encourages a healthy lifestyle.
  • Enhances Fine Motor Development and introduces them to Scientific Concepts.

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu

Below is the gallery of the erection and completion of the fence project. May Allah reward you all; your donations have gone a good way to securing the boundary of the Masjid and making it a safer place for all of your brothers and sisters here in Manchester

The fence is now complete with entrance gates and a gated sections for educational purposes. We will be installing further facilities shortly for the children who attend the Masjid for our various madrasahs and clubs (see salafischool.co and tuitionclub.org). These will include spaces for planting flowers, vegetables and fruit; as well as an outdoor classroom area and space to learn about the beautiful world and creation of Allah.

On Completion of our 5 Day Study Workshop with Ustadh Dr Abdulilah Lahmami

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

By the grace and mercy of Allah, we have just completed our long weekend of study. Alhamdulilāh it has been a busy time for us all, and a much needed and beneficial one.

The Brothers and Sisters present within the community here, were joined by those from many of the other cities and places including Stoke, Bradford, London, Birmingham, Bolton and more.

We ask Allah to reward our Ustādh, Dr Abdulilah Lahmami – for taking this time to visit, teach, sit with and benefit us.

📜 Books and Lessons Taught

During his time with us we managed to go through and complete:

📚 Shaykh Fawzaan’s explanation of the Muqadimah of ibn Abī Zayd al Qayrawāni. (14 sittings)
📚 Shaykh Rabī’s explanation of the Hadīth of Jibrīl. (3 sittings at Fajr time)

In addition to the above he delivered the Friday khutbah on the “3 affairs that will aid a person to remain upon istiqāmah”.

All of the above can be downloaded from our website learnaboutislam.co.uk 📲

ℹ Question and Answer Session with the Brothers.

In addition to the above; there was an impromptu and interactive tarbiyyah sessions with the brothers. Our Ustādh answered questions related to manhaj, gave advice on seeking knowledge, and took the time out to advise us with many important matters including:

1️⃣ Realising the importance and status of the scholars
2️⃣ How to behave in times of trials and tribulations
3️⃣ The importance of following evidences
4️⃣ Remaining united upon the truth, increase
5️⃣ Maintain brotherhood
6️⃣ Having humility and aiding one another upon good.

✍ Saturday School 🎈Final Day Reminder

Our Ustādh also attended the Saturday School certificates day; where the children’s hard work from the term is acknowledged and rewarded. He delivered an excellent and engaging reminder to the children about the importance of learning their deen. Likewise to the parents he offered beneficial advice regarding interacting with children; giving time to their cultivation; playing with them; and displaying good manners with both spouses and children.

📱 A Caution on Social Media ❗

Our Ustādh warned against getting caught up with social media personalities and refuted doubts that are spread regarding Salafiyyah and the Salafis. He shared guidance (some of which he has heard first hand) from Scholars such as Shaykh Rabī, Shaykh Ubayd, Shaykh Fawzān, Shaykh Muhammad al-Banna and others.

All of the above, took place from Thursday to Monday- concluding at Dhuhr time. We ask that Allah reward him, increase him in good and make his good deeds heavy on his scales.

Lastly then “whosoever does not thank the people, has not thanked Allah.” So with this in mind we would also like to extend our thanks to all those who helped to make this possible – amongst the brothers and sisters present. We ask that Allah the Most High, rewards them and blesses them to do even more, in future.

May Allah shower his blessings on us all, overlooks all of our shortcomings, pardons our sins and enter us into Jannah.

📢 Appeal – Sound System for Dawah Stall, Lessons & Eid Prayer

❗️Great Opportunity To Attain Ongoing Reward ❗️

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Dawah Sound System Appeal.

Asalamualaikum wa rahamtullahi wa barakaatuhu

We pray you are all well and in the best of reman. By the grace and mercy of Allah, The Most High, we have managed to establish classes in South Manchester and a weekly dawa stall now in central Manchester see twitter @learnaboutislam & @ccdawahmcr. We also hold our Eid Prayers and the Congregation here bigger every year.

As a result of the use, and expansion- our old Sound System isn’t able to service this need any longer; with sound cutting out, or not reaching; generator noise and hire costs, and it sometimes not working properly at all.

Therefore we contacted a Sound Specialist company and have been quoted a system that will accommodate all our needs and more. The system will be a high capacity battery powered portable speaker system.

However it is expensive- with the total price coming to £2300. Your assistance therefor is needed to raise this amount; and your money will be out toward something integral and vital in the process of giving dawa and teaching the Muslims and non Muslims. So let’s all get together and raise this amount- to carry on the call to Allah!

✳️ Cash

Please give cash to Abu Aisha Amjad Khan, Abul Farooq Kamaal, Abu Khalid Dawud, Aasim Zulfiqaar or Mohammed Hasan

Appeal 2017 – Help Fund the Masjid & New Fence Project

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Asalamu’alaykum wa rahamtullahi wa barakaatuhu

An update on our masjid fence project.

Alhamdulilah Allah blessed us with the chance to collect the funds required over Ramadhaan, and Jazaakumallahukhair to all those who donated.

We had sought out the most competitive prices we could at the time and were ready to go ahead with the work. However we were then made aware of a local council scheme which would augment and add better value to the initial fence we had proposed such as: better quality of fence, better gate security and various security measures.

We decided to apply for these extra security measures, realising we could gain more value for the money we had initially raised.

Alhamdulilāh our application was accepted at the initial stage and we recieved a security inspection. Our final proposals were then submitted; and we are now in the final stages of receiving approval. If this is granted then the fence will include the extra features that we had not initially raised funds, but which enhance the quality and value of the fence and security around the masjid.

As soon as the approval comes through then we will inform the appropriate contractors and work will begin.

May Allah reward all those who donated and contributed to the effort. We thank you for your patience in this affair

Further Information

By Allah’s grace, we have invested a lot of funds in various areas of the masjid recently. This includes the prayer areas, entrances, roof, car park, spare rooms, heating systems, air conditioning systems, wudhu areas, and more. Qadr’ullah as a result we have fallen back in paying our rent with a lump sum now due to our landlord. Alhamdulilah may Allah bless the brother he has been very understanding and patient but we must pay him his due right, and we are short on funds to do so.

This opens up an excellent chance for everyone in our community to contribute to the upkeep of the masjid, and is a great way to show gratitude to Allah the most gracious and the most high for everything he has given us. Alhamdulilah the masjid looks after many people and provides much service to our community. Whether that’s the 250+ attendees of the various madrasahs; or the staff in the all areas; or the sisters who benefit from the Quran and Arabic classes, toddler classes and more; or the 3-400+ attendees for Jumua and 100+ attendees of classes.

So we ask everyone who benefits, and uses the masjid in anyway; whether on site or even online- for Allah’s sake, to help maintain it by paying off its bills, which essentially are the result of its thorough use by all of us. The reward is truly immense and potentially unmeasurable with Allah.

As Shaykh Ubayd (hafidhahullah) advised us to ask the people for funds, and that it was good because he said “your masjid is founded/run on the goodness (charity) of the good doers.” So we implore you as the Messenger (sallallahualayhiwasallam) implored the Sahabah and the women to give in charity for Allahs sake. And this is not for any one individual, but for the masjid, and the dawa it gives which is clear for all in the community to see; and those online as well.

Alhamduilah recently we paid back the loan we had taken to pay the rent shortfall off. However this will only cover us up to what we had. Expanded efforts have meant an increase in regular outgoings. With our increasingly popular dawah stall that is regular on site on Market Street (City Centre Manchester)– teaching and giving information out to non Muslims and clarifying recent events; as well as the huge number of families and children who need support- both with issues and in terms of their Islamic tarbiyyah during the weekdays and Saturdays- all of these and (various other factors) mean will continuously be running low on funds. We can prevent this shortfall in the long term, if we all work together and setup regular standing orders. Our projected shortfall a month is £800.

Alhamdulillah this is not much of a gap for us to bridge, if we all contribute. All it requires is for 40 people to setup a standing order for £20 per month. You can kick start this effort right now, by setting up a regular monthly donation from your bank account. This is easy, and means that you can donate a small amount regularly, and over time this will accumulate into what we hope from Allah will be a huge reward.

Where does your Money go?

Your money goes to so many areas at the masjid, that it’s value will never be lost insha’Allah. The following is a list of areas donations are split over:

  1. The Masjid Building: The masjid is now fully using every aspect of its premises whereby we are often squeezed for space. This huge increased footflow and attendance requires maintenance, including cleaning and repair work. We also have to increase the number of bin collections (which are no longer free), as well as having external mainttenance work done. We sometimes have no space on jumua, and open up upstairs as an overflow. Further more the masjid provides the physical space needed to hold lessons in Islamic Topics. Currently we have a study on Sahih al Bukhari and had a themed lesson on Marriage and Divorce.
  2. Online presence: This includes the websites whcih have grown immensly in traffic and use, with 1000’s of users benefiting every day. We now have the following sites:
