Weʼre raising £450,000 to help purchase our first Masjid.

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.
I have slowly seen the Muslim community grow around me from a handful of houses of near relatives to a community that is now representative of the global Muslim population. Alhamdulillah by the grace of Allah swt, we presently congregate in a portacabin where we have the 5 daily prayers taking place, as well as Jummah and Tarawih, as well as a madrassah for our children.
We are looking to raise money in order to purchase a building from where we can provide services to the whole of the Muslim community in Chesterfield and its surrounding areas. We have also established a number of initiatives within the local community which include an interfaith forum with the local churches and people of other faiths, which hopefully we can build on, should we be in a position to acquire our own premises.
However, as the community grows, so do the needs of that community and we are now in urgent need of our own masjid to try and provide these services.
We have been leasing a Portacabin for the last 9 years and are now looking to purchase the building above for our first Masjid in Chesterfield which is a place we can grow into Inshallah over the coming years.
We are in need of £450.000 to help secure the building in the next few weeks and hope the Muslim community of the UK can assist in this noble cause.
