For the past 20 years we have been using a semi-detached house for prayers and teaching children the essential components of our deen. The Muslim population in Nottingham has increased and as a result, alhamdu-lillah the number of people attending prayers in the new Masjid/Centre has also increased.
For us, the building of this new centre is essential to the continued nurturing of young Muslims. It will maintain and sustain Islamic values; give the young and old an opportunity to model their life on the fundamental principles of Islam; and create an environment that encourages worship and learning. We therefore appeal to Muslims around the globe to help us build this centre.
The total cost of the project is estimated around £2.2m to £2.4m. The local Muslims and Muslims around the world have raised £700,000 to date alhamdulillah. This may not sound like a lot, but this community faces adverse social and economic conditions and to raise this amount is a very significant contribution. Allah (swt) indeed knows best.
You are also encouraged to make donations according to what Allah (swt) has given you. We are confident that Allah (swt) will reward you for your sincere donations.
Allah Almighty says in the Noble Qur’an:
Those who spend their wealth (in Allah’s cause) by night and by day, in secret and in public, they shall have their reward with their Lord. On them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve. (Surah Al-Baqarah:274)
