Story

Salam, my name is Aihtsham. I am a local from Leeds. I recently recieved a phone call from a mate if mine on The Isle of Lewis, a small island North of Scotland. There are just over 8000 people residing there. Amongst the 8000 people, there is a very small muslim community including a small syrian refugee community. The muslim community who have been resiedent from 1945 have been trying for a long time to get planning permission for their very own mosque. Against all odds and oppossition from the Free Church of Scotland they have now been granted permission to build.

I have been personally requested to go up and help them with the build and planning of their very first mosque due to my experiance in building mosques. I am aiming to get this mosque up and running by Ramadhan to enable the local muslims to read their first tarawee prayers. This job requires alot of financing which the locals cannot afford being such a small community of muslims. Please dig deep and reserve your very own house in paradise. “Whosoever shares in building a masjid for Allah, even if it is a small birds nest, Allah S.W.T will build for him/her a house in Paradise”. (Ahmad)

My main target is once the masjid is built to make sure its self reliant and we have no issues running it after. Please dont stop please keep giving. i have many things which i want you all to be part of keep watching...

I own a construction company and specialise in building new build homes and Mosques. The reason I am so passionate about this project is I know the reward of helping build a place of worship and I also want to help as many Muslim brothers and sisters as possible.
