The challenge is to inspire our supporters to join hands with us, in piety and taqwa, to raise in excess of a million pounds to help in the establishment of Olive Mount.

Story

The book is the first in a series of works that will be translated and annotated annually by Ibrahim Osi-Efa and thereby launched each year during the prophetic month of Rabī' al-Awwal, in shā Allāh; with the primary intention of further introducing the English speaking world to our master, the Messenger of God, ṣalla'Llāhu alayhi wa sallam. Likewise, the work will also serve to assist in the realisation of the Olive Mount project by gifting the endowment all donations received for the translation and publishing of the book, as well as the entire proceeds from the sale of the book.

One of the ways the translation will raise funds for the project is by dedicating one of the introductory pages to only ninety-two named individuals, whether alive or deceased, as a means of establishing an ongoing charity (aṣ-ṣadaqah al-jāriyah) in their name. Anyone who donates £1000 or more to this project will be able to choose a name, i.e. of a family member, a loved one or the like and thereafter the name of the chosen individual will be placed alongside the other names at the beginning of the book. And with God alone lies tawfīq!
