£100,000 Raised For The Rohingya Emergency Appeal!

Over £100,000 has been raised for the Rohingya Emergency Appeal that Masjid al-Furqan initiated last week.
We ask Allah Azza wa Jal to reward all of our brothers and sisters that supported and contributed towards the appeal.
Anyone still wishing to donate towards the Appeal may do so up until we state otherwise.
May Allah protect our Rohingya brothers and sisters and bless them safety.

Assist Us to Reach Our Target; For Indeed Being Generous- Especially When People Are in Need and In Ramadan- Is Something We Should Be Keen to Accomplish to The Best of Our Ability

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Narrated Ibn Abbaas (radiyallaahu-anhumaa): The Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] was the most generous amongst the people, and he used to be more so in the month of Ramadaan when Jibreel visited him, and Jibreel used to meet him on every night of Ramadaan till the end of the month. The Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] used to recite the Noble Qur’aan to Jibreel, and when Jibreel met him, he used to be more generous than the fair wind [sent by Allaah with glad tidings (rain) in readiness and haste to do charitable deeds].

Few Reminders from This Hadeeth by Shaikh Bin Baaz [rahimahullaah]

[1] The Prophet [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] was the most generous person.

[2] Being generous in times when [people] are in need and in Ramadaan is something a person should be keen to accomplish.

[3] In the final year [of his life], Jibreel met the Prophet twice and he finished the recitation of the [Qur’aan] twice.

[4] And from the benefits of [this hadeeth] is that it is more virtuous to study and recite the Qur’aan at night.

[5] And [from the benefits of this hadeeth] is a person’s study of the Qur’aan with the righteous people and the scholars.

Asalaamualaikum wa Rahmatullaah

It is from the countless Blessings of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic that we are nearing completion of Phase 2 of the new build Masjid on North Road.

The contractor is on track to complete works within the next 2 weeks bi’ithnillaah. Thereafter, there remains the purchase of the windows and doors before we are able to proceed to the Masjid internal works (Phase 3).

With this in mind, we humbly request our brothers and sisters to donate towards the ‘Masjid Window Appeal’

19 windows remain available to purchase at £1,200 each and we aim to collect all remaining prior to the start of Ramadhaan bi’ithnillaah.
