Appeal target £30,000
Building Project: Masjid Al-Furqan and International Daw’ah Centre
Location: Oriental Mindoro province, Philippines
Almost seven years ago from the humble begining Muslim community leased a land and built a small temporary Masjid as a place of worship and over the years the Masjid has became a focal point of the community.
The leased contract with the landowner ended last year but the landowner agreed to extend the lease to end of July 2021. Alhamdulillah, a land adjacent to the temporary Masjid was purchased last year and a boundary wall was constructed. For further information please see BTIT Masjid Land Appeal Fundraiser
Alhumdolillah, by the will of Allah (SWT) the laying the foundation and casting of the 10 pillars has started with the beginning of this Ramadan. The total cost of the project is around £50,000 however, BTIT has pledged £30,000 the balance of £20K will be raised by the community itself from other sources. BTIT has pledged £10,000 during the month of Ramadan to get the project off the ground and we need to collect another £20,000 to keep the project going to its final conclusion.
My dear brothers and sisters this is your chance to be part of this sadka a jayria project where we are laying the foundation in building a Masjid and a Daw’ah Center to propagate the dean of Allah (SWT). BTIT relies on your support to carry out its activities and I am sure with your continuous support and overwhelming generosity we will in shaa Allah achieve our target of £30,000 in no time.
