10 Days to go, 44 BRICKS TO LAY...

As we approach the last 10 days of our fund-raising, here is where we stand:
For those of you who have been keeping up-to-date on our website will have noticed a dramatic change in the figure today. Alhamdulillah this is because of a group of our brothers who loaned us £50,000 pounds yesterday. Indeed he who has not thanked the people has not thanked Allah. We ask Allah to increase their provisions 10 folds and grant them the highest reward for helping us establish this Masjid of Sunnah. Jazakumullahu Khair ikhwaan. This has indeed given everyone a massive boost knowing that we are now a stone-throw away of reaching our target.

O our Brothers and Sisters. Maybe some day we will give a detailed account to you of the difficulties we have faced in trying to raise this money. A project which began as a dream is today becoming a reality. Allah has aided us and opened up ways and means that we simply did not know existed. We thank Allah azzawajal and ask Him to increase us in our blessings.

We want to end by launching our "44 bricks to lay" campaign. All we require is 44 of you to buy the last 44 bricks of this Masjid and we are done. Each brick costs £2000 each. We went to the conference in Birmingham last weekend and saw thousands of people. From amongst all the community in the entire world, all we require is 44 of you to buy 1 brick each. Now we know that this may be difficult for some. But to give you an idea of how we approached this then several brothers in Bradford committed to give a £2000 loan to us. But the responsibility of paying back that loan was not upon albaseerah, but upon each of them. So they then contacted all their family and friends, explored various fund-raising ideas to get that money back. What this scheme achieves is that we get the 2K immediately and you can then work throughout the year to get that money back into you bank accounts. So you loan the money to us and then pay that loan back yourself in your own time, without the burden of the loan falling upon us.

With it being the last 10 days we will now provide daily updates via all mediums. If you require immediate updates then please visit Whenever some money reaches our bank account we almost immediately update the figures on the website. We will also have a “44 brick” grid that will appear on our website by tomorrow Insha’Allah. Please do not delay in donating. Sometimes man is clouded with the following thoughts “I don’t need to give, I’m sure they will raise the money somehow without my help or input”. Indeed this is the dangerous mentality that prevents us from giving. By Allah the money we have raised today would not have happened if all of us thought like this. Rather our figures show that £10,012 pounds came through paypal and £57,487 pounds came through cash or bank transfer. Some people gave £5, £10, £20, £100, £1000, £2000 and £5000 pounds. This is how we achieved this. So we remind ourselves and all of you not to delay in donating. Jazakumuallahu Khair for all those who donated so far. Your efforts and reward is surely with your Lord, to whom you will return. 

Your brothers and sisters at Albaseerah
