Fundraising Progress

As of December 2021, we had 87 standing orders of the target of 1000. This is a great baseline to start with, if you haven’t setup a standing order, please use the form on the last page.

Our aim at ARK is to increase this total tenfold, which means that the standing orders will need to increase.

We need people that are not just willing to give once, but month in month out until the project is completed. Faithfully fighting to build the new mosque and the services it will provide.

We subscribe to things every month, streaming services, magazines, internet, movies and music. We are loyal to these things because they benefit our lives. The new mosque, that KMWA is building, benefits the entire lives of our community.

It only takes everyone one to give £25 every month, some of you can give that, some of you can give more and some of you less. Everything you give will go to building the mosque.

Until the day we can finally say the mosque has been finished.

If you can afford just £25 per month.

General Secretary Update

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wo barakatuhu.

As the Government COVID guidelines are changing it feels as though we are moving towards more normal times.

With a busy period fast approaching, we are looking ahead to our Ramadan arrangements for April Inshah Allah.

This is a time where we rely on heavier fund raising for the new Masjid and we will ask our Community to once again dig deep whilst we try to push forward with the development.

I want to take this opportunity to say that the Community has given a lot and will continue to give and may Allah subhana wa ta’ala open up our generosity, but ultimately we are using the opportunity given by Allah subhana wa ta’ala to provide for ourselves for now and the hereafter.

Consider the endless rewards of Sadaqah Jaria and how this is multiplied by giving in Ramadan.
