Salaficentre Appeal 2019

📢 Ramadhaan 2019 Announcement

The Month of Ramadhaan will commence today from Maghrib and the first fast will be tomorrow insh’Allāh. We begin the Tarāweeh prayer tonight after the Ishaa’ prayer at 10:30pm. On Friday this will change to 10:45pm.

Car Parking & Neighbours

As a general reminder for those attending the masjid please park your cars 🚗 properly and safely within the car park and on the surrounding streets- taking care not to block driveways. Also as we are praying late it’s important that we are quiet when coming and leaving so as not to disturb our neighbours 🏡.

Security

There will be security during the night prayer outside – Allah reward the brothers. However please still be vigilant as it is late.

Sisters Side Information

The sisters side of the masjid will be open 🚪 for the Salah. And for the benefit of the all sisters praying, we will have the air conditioning unit on throughout the prayer. ✅ We advise sisters that if they cannot manage standing close to the AC (due to the cold) please move to another area of the musallah.

There will be refreshments and snacks for sale at the end of taraweeh, outside the masjid. All proceeds will go toward our masjid wudhu area and play area appeals. For more details or to donate, then go to SalafiCentre.com/playground and Salaficentre.com/donate.

Important Message About Zakat.

Alhamdulillah we have some good connections at the masjid with trustworthy brothers and sisters in various countries, where there are poor muslims in need. Places include Egypt, Nigeria, Uganda, Pakistan and more; and the brothers and sisters there, assist with this for Allah’s sake.

Each year we appoint those whom we know and trust to distribute some of this, and from it included Zakat al Fitr.. often times this is left a few until the last moment. However to get this arranged for so many people it is important that it is not delayed in paying it, if you need help in distributing it, and are not doing so yourself.

Please refer to the poster for more information on all the types of Zakat / payments we collect and distribute, including fidyah (meal payments for those allowed to pay in replacement for fasts). For the full information on this please check the following link: salaficentre.com/zakaah

 

May Allah allow us to reach this Blessed Month, forgive us all of our sins and grant us jannah.

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

If you wish to make a one off donation please reference it as appeal2018. Thi will go toward the £6000 debt we have. Or if you can set up a regular standing order then please do so using the following information.

Account Name: Dar Ul Hadith
Sort Code: 309542
Account Number: 05570092
Bank Name: Lloyds

The reference can be “runningcosts”, or “masjidcosts”. You can also donate using PayPal, however they take a cut from any donation we receive, so please bear in mind, and use the first option if possible. Our Paypal Link is: paypal.me/salaficentre

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)
