Update on our Nursery and Full School Project

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الحمد لله رب العالمين و الصلاة و السلام على نبينا محمد و على آله و أصحابه و من تبعهم بإحسان إلى يوم الدين، أما بعد:

We ask Allah The Most High, Lord of the tremendous Throne to forgive our sins and make easy for us to worship Him in this blessed month, verily He is the Oft-Forgiving, the Most Merciful.

The brothers and sisters at the Salafi Centre of Manchester and the Salafi School wish to congratulate you all for being blessed with reaching the month of Ramadhan.

Last year we launched an appeal to raise funds to buy a building; with the aim of opening a Nursery and a School. We had arranged a loan to facilitate it, but unfortunately that didn’t transpire, and all is from the Decree and tremendous Wisdom of Allah.

Subsequently, we have been unable to raise the required £600,000 for the purchase of the building, despite all the efforts of everyone involved.

May Allah reward everyone for their efforts, those who donated and raised funds.

As a result we have changed plans; reverting back to locating a suitably sized building on lease. Over the past year we have been working hard, alot of background work and changing our business model. As a result we have managed to find and view an excellent property for a Nursery which is in close proximity to the Masjid, wa’alhamdulillaah. The property is large and spacious, in excess of 4000sq feet. Our aim is to open a Nursery and on the second floor establish a Home School Tuition Club; catering for the main core subjects – Maths, English and Science, Geography, I.T., etc. with the structure based on the National Curriculum. Trials for the viability and demand of this will be taking place after Ramadhan (Please see www.salafischool.co.uk/tuitionclub for more information).

Our Current Situation

We have submitted an offer on the building, which has now been accepted. This means very soon we may be taking possession of the property if final negotiations are successful inshaa’Allaah.

Up to now we have raised £53,000. This is a sum of all totals raised by our local community, donations from elsewhere and regular standing orders which have been set up. These funds have given us the platform to proceed with leasing this building and we have instructed solicitors to proceed after having had extensive communications with the Council and Local Education Authority; all giving good positive feedback at every step, Wa lillaahil Hamd.

In order to complete the project and to provide outstanding facilities desired for both the Nursery and the School we need a total of £100,000.

Our expectations for the community is to have the best facilities for our children fully complying with terms of regulations and requirements.

These funds will be utilised for the building works, resources and materials required to give the children the best holistic education we can possibly provide.

On the authority of Abu Ya’la Shaddad bin Aws (may Allah be pleased with him), that the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

“Verily Allah has prescribed ihsan (perfection) in all things. Thus if you kill, kill well; and if you slaughter, slaughter well. Let each one of you sharpen his blade and let him spare suffering to the animal he slaughters.” Muslim

We urgently require your aid in fulfilling this noble project (after the Aid of Allah), we aim to use this Nursery as a stepping stone to our goals of providing full time primary and secondary education. Take advantage and rush towards giving charity for the sake of Allah, do not delay for verily you may lose this great opportunity to help the children and help this religion of Allah by providing for the young children, our next generation do not leave them to be devoured by the wolves and desires of this world.

The Prophet (peace and blessings upon him) saying, “(O people!) Give in charity (for Allah’s cause) because a time will come when a person will carry his object of charity from place to place (and he will not find any person to take it) and any person whom he shall request to take it, will reply, ‘If you had brought it yesterday I would have taken it, but today I am not in need of it” Sahih Al-Bukhari

**URGENT UPDATE** BUILDING OFFER ACCEPTED – Funds needed within this month

Asalaamualaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu

We pray that you are all well and in the best of eemaan, and that you are having a productive Ramadhaan.

Brothers and sisters, we have learnt that one of the offers we have put in for a building has been accepted. This happens to be the better buildings that has room for us to expand in. It is close to the masjid, has the appropriate planning as well as good grounds for activities and play areas.

Now that this has been accepted we need the money for the building straight away. We simply cannot miss out on this opportunity. So if you have a donation to give then please give – now is that time to give.

As narrated Haritha bin Wahab: I heard the Prophet (sallalahualayhi wa sallam) saying, “O people! Give in charity as a time will come upon you when a person will wander about with his object of charity and will not find anybody to accept it, and one (who will be requested to take it) will say, “If you had brought it yesterday, would have taken it, but to-day I am not in need of it.” Bukhari Volume 2, Book 24, Number 492.

There is no greater cause to spend your charity on then the correct and good tarbiyyah (cultivation) of the Muslim child. These children will grow into men and women, and they will carry themselves and this deen in the future. With good tarbiyyah they will follow the deen of Allah and know that he the most high should be worshipped alone. Their love of Allah and his deen will mean they will be responsible adults, taking care of their parents in the best way and in old age.

Allah the most high says: “O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families against a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allâh, but do that which they are commanded.”

We need an environment in which our children have the best possible chance of being saved form this fire. We need to give them that chance and opportunity to learn the correct aqeedah (Islamic belief) of the Prophet (sallahualayhi wa sallam) free from changes and distortions.

Please spread this message to each and every single person you know. If the donation is small or large it doesn’t matter so long as it is given for the sake of Allah, then the reward will not be missed inshaa’Allah. As narrated by Adi Bin Hatim : “I heard the Prophet (sallahualayhi wa sallam) saying “save yourself from the hell fire, even by giving half a date fruit in charity.” (Bukhari No. 1417).

So give whatever you can. It is the month of Ramadhaan, so look to yourselves and see whatever it is you can donate for the sake of Allah. Narrated Abu Huraira that the the Prophet (sallahualayhi wa sallam) said “Allah said, ‘O son of Adam! Spend, and I shall spend on you.” Who of us doesn’t want Allah to spend on us?

Give and don’t fear poverty for yourself: “Shaitân (Satan) threatens you with poverty and orders you to commit Fahshâ (evil deeds, illegal sexual intercourse, sins); whereas Allâh promises you Forgiveness from Himself and Bounty, and Allâh is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower.” (al Baqarah 268). 

Allah says “Who is he that will lend to Allâh a goodly loan so that He may multiply it to him many times? And it is Allâh that decreases or increases (your provisions), and unto Him you shall return.” (Baqarah: 245). Give for the sake of Allah and Allah will multiply it for you by many times!

So we pray that each reader donates and gives and makes du’a for this project to be a success. We hope that every reader can carry this message and spend in charity to purify himself, earn reward and set the foundations for this noble project for the future.

We ask Allah for the good in this life and the good in the hereafter and to save us from the fire of hell.

**Important Update** – URGENT! Building Found and Funds Needed as Soon as Possible

We found out today that the building we were going to take for the school isn’t up for rent but there is a good chance for us to buy it. The building is in the Crumpsall and Cheetham Hill area, approximately 3 mins from the masjid and has planning permission (d1) for a school and nursery.

After consultation amongst the brothers on the shurah and the school committee, and also after losing out on a previous building, then we have concluded that it is a must that we go for this building.

We need to raise the money for it… The total is £560,000 for the building, and approximately £40,000 for work on it – totalling £600,000.

Although this isn’t a small amount it is relatively cheap in comparison to other buildings for £700,000, that don’t have the appropriate planning, and quality location.

Then brothers & sisters, we need to get into gear and raise this money. We have approximately 3 months to do so.

This is something that affects everyone of us in one way or another. Some of us have children and others not. So anyone of us who has children, is expecting children, has nieces or nephews or knows know others with children kids, will all be affected in a positive way insha’Allah by having a school.

It will also open up the doors for many brothers and sisters to work in a good, enjoyable, rewarding and halaal environment and to build the community as a whole upon the with good tarbiyyah upon the correct Islamic Aqeedah.

If you can donate, then please do. Any amount will do. Anything will be highly appreciated and insha’Allah the reward will be multiplied due to all the children which will benefit from your donation.

If you can loan anything, then contact the brothers Abu A’isha Amjad Khan (Manchester) or Abu Ameerah Kashif Zulfiqar (Ashton); and for sisters please contact the deputy head Lola Fasan. We will agree a repayment term and time and work our hardest to repay it.

Please loan any amount £10, £100, £1000, £10,000… You will be rewarded by Allah even for a loan and inshallah that will also be multiplied. And then you will also get your money back.

We can’t stress the importance and urgency of this to the community here in Manchester. For a community established for more than ten years, the school has been sorely missed. And we see the effects in our area on some of the children who grew up without this facility, and Allah’s aid is sought.

So once again, brothers and sisters, then for the sake of Allah and his pleasure, then please work as hard as you can to raise this money. Speak to your friends, family, the general Muslims and convince them of the importance of a Muslim School upon the Qur’an and Sunnah.

All donation details here

Let’s make it happen bi’idhnillah! And with Allah is the tawfeeq and to him is the final return.

Salafi School Kid’s Summer Fun Day – Sunday 22nd June (End of Term)

As-salāmu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullāhi wa barakātuhu.

Great news! For the children’s end of term treat, we have been offered (may Allah reward the brothers) some grounds on which to hold a fun day for all the kids! Please see the poster below and the details for the day below.

Certificates & Prizes Day

Please note that the last day is on Sunday – And it is where the children receive their certificates and prizes. Parents are also invited to stay and take part in their children’s successes. The location is different, as we will be having a Summer Fun Day/Trip for the children.

Address: PALM BEACH & B&A QUILTING, (grounds), OXFORD STREET EAST, ASHTON, OL7 0LT.

At the beginning of the day (10:30) there will be an assembly, and the children will receive their certificates, including prizes for the top 3 achievers in each year group. The children will then be able to take part in all of the activities present. The Saturday School Attendees will be given free tickets to go month activities as well as to buy some snacks and foods. Everybody else will need to purchase some tickets insha’Allah, with all proceeds going back to the school.

We request ALL the parents to come and join in with their children on that day. Please note that we won’t be able to supervise the children so parents and guardians will need to be present with their children

. It will be a fun day, and you can bring cousins and family  members. Parents are encouraged to stay for the duration of the assembly and celebrate their child/children’s success with us. Please note that we would expect good Islamic behaviour from those outside the Saturday School also.
