This week at Summer School 2021!

Alhamdulilah we have now come to Day 5, the final day of summer school 2021!!

It has been a tremendous & fun week for all students who have loved attending and taking part in challenges, learning new skills and meeting new friends.

Throughout the week children have leapt through new challenges such as horse riding, Rifle Shooting and Kayaking. The cooking and baking sessions taught children new, delicious and tasty recipes to increase and build their kitchen skills & confidence, as well as producing mouth-watering food.

Our Final day was concluded with a full day outdoor trip to Grip Adventure Water Park.

Students many for the first time enjoyed Kayaking and Canoeing with their peers. The children enjoyed partaking in a few races whilst out on the water which definitely had some fast winners! Later in the afternoon students enjoyed some indoor Archery and Rock climbing.

Our week was concluded back at the masjid with an assembly for the students and gifts for their superb performance this week.

It’s from the blessings of Allah that we have been able to accommodate and facilitate these activities for the children. We hope to continue these beneficial activities for the youth.

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
