For many years the Muslim community of Colindale has been using the Mosques in Hendon and Edgware. With the community increasing in size, there has for many years been a need to have a local centre in Colindale which can cater for their needs but which is within easy walking distance. Islamic Centre Edgware has many students that attend the madrasah who travel from Colindale and have been looking to open an Education Centre locally.
By the Grace and Mercy of Allah, Islamic Centre Edgware was presented with an opportunity to purchase a suitable premises in Colindale which used to be the old Lloyds Bank. We have agreed terms and have put down a deposit to secure ownership. The building was purchased for almost £1.1m and we are looking to raise a further £500,000 for completion.
We are requesting donations from only 500 people to donate £1000 each! May Allah give us all tawfeeq and accept it from us. This is a golden opportunity to invest in akhira – please do not let it pass by!
“Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned.” [Surah al-Baqarah 2: 245]
“The Mosques of Allah shall be maintained only by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day; perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat and fear none but Allah. It is they who are expected to be on true guidance” [Surah at-Tawbah 9:18].
Jaabir ibn ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever builds a mosque for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow’s nest or even smaller, Allaah will build for him a house in Paradise.” [Sunan Ibn Maajah, Hadeeth 738]
We are also looking for Qarze Hasna loans which will help us to reach our target. Islamic Centre Edgware will give assurance of the return of loans.
You can donate online (processing fees apply) or you can donate directly into our Bank account or by giving cash payments at the centre.
