📸 Gallery of Completed Fence Project

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.

Ramadhaan Masjid Improvement & Maintenance Appeal – Donate Without Delay!

In the Name of Allah – Ar Rahmaan, Ar Raheem

It is by the permission of Allah that we have been allowed to reach this Ramadhaan. So we thank him for this great blessing and we urge ourselves and yourselves to take full advantage of this month.

Over the past year the Masjid has seen many improvements, additions and maintenance works take place. The increased number of attendees and need to provide space and facilities for the community have led this drive. Our aim has always been to provide ease for the brothers, sisters and children who attend. So to date the following has taken place

Installation

  • New carpets in both men’s & women’s sections, enabling us to replace a 13 year old carpet, and making use of all the space available to us.
  • A brand new sound system, for all corners of the masjid building; from inside the men’s side, up to the flat and out to the cabin, enabling us to pray in all rooms when required.

Interior Maintenance

  • Refurbishment & painting the walls
  • New Double Interior doors, to increase traffic flow in and out of the masjid, especially during Jumua, Eid and during lesson, events and conferences.
  • New fire safe Entrance Doors, on both men’s and women’s side.
  • Painting of the exterior of the Masjid.
  • New windows fitted on sisters side allowing natural light and improved airflow; especially useful with the busy sister’s section during tarawee’ and summer.
  • Improved hot water heating system, with zonal heating to provide maximum efficiency (currently being installed).
  • Additional fire exits for brothers and sisters, to improve safety and flow (currently being installed).

Educational Improvements

  • Purchase and refurbishment of an outdoor double classroom.
  • Purchase and refurbishment of an outdoor classroom.
  • Successfully set up a Tuition Club providing an option for home schooling parents, who need support (www.tuitionclub.org).

Those who regularly attend have benefited from all of the above; and the masjid is now a more comfortable place, able to accommodate  increased number of attendees, who come and listen to the khutbahs and lessons; learning tawheed and sunnah. Likewise the number of children attending Qur’an class and Saturday Madrasah has increased, with more and more able to learn the correct Aqeedah and Manhaj, as well as Salah, Wudhu and other things from Fiqh.

But our work isn’t complete and needs funds for further maintenance works and improvements. with such high numbers of attendees, including both women and children, the masjid can become very full and hot (as witnessed by many during our recent conference). We need to continue improving airflow, but completing windows and installing an air conditioning system for both brothers and sisters.

So for those who can then please donate generously towards the building of our masjid and its improvements. And we ask that Allah rewards you immensely for building and improving his house, for his sake.

Heating System Upgrade – Pictures of work in progress – Allah Reward those who contributed!

Alhamdulilaah our heating systems are being updated.

This saves us money in the long term, and also makes it much more convenient for those who attend.

  1. The women’s side heating will now switch on and off independently when sisters are present or absent; as opposed to heating the entire masjid. This is convenient for them as well as saving money for all of us.
  2. Our secondary boiler is now located in the men’s side and saves both water and heating costs. Water now longer needs to be run along the pipes so that cold water passes, saving wasted water. It also instantly heats the water as opposed to preheating a tank full of unused water, and keeping it at that temperature.

Jazaakumallahukhair to all who have contributed, indeed with Allah is the best of rewards
