Cambridge Mosque Appeal
as-salamu ‘alaykum dear friends, family and supporters,
You may or may not be aware of the Cambridge Mosque is Moving project headed up by our dear Sheikh Abdul Hakim Murad. They urgently require donations to help with the build cost of the mosque and have initiated a “Brick by Brick” appeal where you can donate the cost of the bricks. It is estimated that the mosque will require 350,000 bricks to build. Each brick costs only £1.40 making it easy for every one of us to help not only make this mosque a reality but to actually be a part of the building itself. In supporting the appeal this year, the bricks you donate will long stand as a sadaqa jariyya, a continuing charity on your behalf and a testament to the community that built the first purpose built mosque in Cambridge…brick by brick.
In order to reach this goal, so many of us across the country and the world for that matter are banding together to raise funds for this necessary and important cause. All of us, in our near and far corners of the world can contribute bricks towards the first purpose built mosque in Cambridge.
I urge everyone who reads this to pledge 10 bricks (£14) but any amount of donation is gratefully received.
Mas’ud Ahmed Khan
