Alhamdulillah, through the tawfeeq of Allah SWT, thePTA of Quwwat ul Islam Girls’ school are launching our biggest fundraisingcampaign to date. This year we have teamed up with UK charity, Rahma Mercy, to sponsor a classroom in theproposed Rahma Institute in Albania.
Following Rahma Mercy’s successful previouseducational projects, they have purchased 10,000 m2 of land in orderto build the Rahma Institute, astate of the art educational complex in Albania.
Thisproposed building will house the following:
BoardingFacility for Girls Higher Islamic Education, Madrassah, Prayer Hall,Kindergarten, Primary School, Secondary School, Outdoor and Indoor PlayingAreas, shops and more.
We have pledged to sponsora classroom in this complex, which will cost £14,000 and will cater for 25 students.
Quwwat ul Islam Girls’ school provides a wholesomeeducation to its students. Therefore, the PTA has chosen this particularproject that will empower our daughters to facilitate in providing a quality andenriched education to the children in Albania and go on this learning journeywith them.
5 people donate £1000
10 people donate £500
40 people donate £100
Insha Allah, this will be sadaqah e jaariya for all ofus. It will also be an educational project wherein the students will learnabout the history of Albania, understand the plights of refugees, orphans, widowsand those who have survived the effects of a war.
Rahma Mercy was founded in 1999 in response tothe plight of the refugees who were fleeing from the war in Kosovo and had thussettled in Albania. Rahma Mercy discovered that as well as humanitarian aid,there was also a great need to revive Islam back into the lives ofthe Albanians.

Albania is our closest European Muslim majority countrybeing only a 3-hour flight away. It was under the Ottoman rule for over 400years before its collapse in the year 1912. In 1944 a Communist dictator tookover and over the span of 47 years Islam was completely prohibited from beingpractised in any way. After the collapse of communism in 1992, the Balkan wars andthe subsequent Kosovan war took place in which many Muslims were massacred.During this time the Kosovans (in the neighbouring region) fled for their livesand sought refuge in Albania. When a team of volunteers from the U.K (who laterfounded the Rahma Mercy) went to provide humanitarian relief they were shockedby the stories that the refugees in Albania told them about the atrocities theyhad suffered.
Additionally, the volunteers discovered that the peoplein Albania identified themselves as Muslims but because of communism they hadlost all knowledge of the Deen.
