Weʼre raising £10,000 to Contribute to the new masjid project for Masjid e Irfan, Eldon Road, Blackburn.
- Blackburn, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Masjid E Irfan was opened in the late 90's by a small group of local residents. The former public house was made suitable for use as a house of worship and as a madrassa for over a hundred children each week.
Since the 90's the community has grown exponentially and the old masjid has become outgrown. There is insufficient space for weekly prayers, forcing attendees, sometimes elderly in age, to pray on stairwells and in passages. The children are unable to be facilitated in the one building and therefore must rely on using housing nearby for classes. Visitors staying at the Masjid have to use facilities that are challenging such as a kitchen in the basement and shower and toiletting facilities that are in need of care.
The situation is less than ideal to say the least.
The project for a new masjid has begun and over 60% of the funds have been raised so far. Follow the link for pictures of the work so far.
We need your help to raise the remainder 40%. Remember, those who build a House of Allaah in this world shall have a house built for them in Jannah.
May Allaah reward you for your donations. Aameen.
