Human Relief Foundation collection 19th January 2024 for Gaza

Assallamu’alaikum


On Friday 19th January, the international humanitarian aid charity, Human Relief
Foundation (Charity No.1126281), will be collecting at Worthing Masjid in aid of their
humanitarian aid support for those displaced by the conflict in Gaza.


Winter has descended on the region. Those who have been displaced or forced to abandon
their homes are faced to confront prospect of surviving the coming months in the open.
With existing shelters, hospitals and schools now dangerously overcrowded, temporary tent
settlements have become a striking feature across the region. Lacking the most basic
sanitation provision, the risk of the potentially life threatening spread of infectious diseases
increases dramatically in these makeshift camps.


HRF continues to plan and work with local partners to purchase and deliver vital seasonal
humanitarian aid to Palestinians who have been displaced by the unrelenting devastation in
Gaza. Current figures suggest that approximately 1.9 million people have been displaced
across region since the beginning of hostilities in October.


We’re not just looking at the immediate need but the unprecedented amount of
humanitarian aid that will be required when this conflict ends. A refugee crisis of
unparalleled proportions. The need to rebuild lives, livelihoods and futures. Human Relief
Foundation has the expertise and resilience built up over 30 years, to ensure that the
provision of vital food supplies, shelter, first aid equipment and sanitation goes directly to
where it required the most.


You have supported us for many years, and know that Human Relief Foundation has the
expertise and resilience built up over 30 years to deliver vital food supplies, shelter and first
aid equipment where it’s urgently needed. Today, we ask that you join with us again to show
solidarity and give hope to those who need it most.

Winchester Muslim Cultural Association Charity collection – 24th November 2023

Assallamu’alaikum Everyone.

On Jummuah Day, Friday 24 November 2023 a Charity called Winchester Muslim Cultural Association (Charity Reg. No.: 1085124) is coming to do a collection in Worthing Masjid. The monies collected will be used to help fund their development project.

Please read the message below from Winchester Muslim Cultural Association Charity :

Help us to establish the first Mosque in Winchester, once the capital of England  
 
Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Assalamualaikum,
 
We are raising funds for the Winchester Muslim Cultural Association (WMCA) which is a registered charity.
 
Winchester is a fairly small city which was once the capital of England. We do not yet have a masjid; we have been renting out various community centres, halls etc for Jummah salah and taraweeh salah in Ramadan. Our nearest masajid are located in Southampton and Basingstoke, both about 15 miles away.
We are a young and diverse community and who are desperate for a permanent location, a masjid is the key to any community and helps unite people. The youngsters are hungry for knowledge and Islamic activities.
 
The WMCA has been looking for a property for the first permanent multi-function Mosque and community centre in Winchester for over 40 years. (23 under current charity) In that time, the committee have viewed several properties for which bids were placed but without success, due to various reasons such as developers placing more favourable bids and concerns over use. 
 
Alhamdullilah, we have made a successful bid of £700,000 for Hyde parish hall and solicitors have been engaged. Hyde Parish Hall is located a short walk from the City Centre and recently came on the market as a freehold sale. Hyde Parish Hall meets a lot of the property requirements that have been set by the WMCA:
 
*  Close to public car parks and public transport 
*  Has already got F1 planning permission required for a Community Centre and place of worship
*  Has a large Hall suitable for gatherings, and congregational prayers for up 200 people.
*  Has accessible entrances and facilities.
*  Separate 1st floor accommodation.

The property is being purchased under Charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) under the WMCA registered charity.

Alhamdulillah we’ve had a great response from our own community but still require further funds of £175,000. This is made up of the purchase of the Mosque, funds to carry out renovations, and a small contingency amount.
 
We are currently in the process of generating more funds for our purchase, and we need help from our brothers and sisters in your community with this amazing opportunity for the house of Allah. Would you kindly allow us to come and fundraise at Worthing masjid?
 
May Allah help us to raise the funds and accept everyone’s intention and help in this process.

Please see the attached information which includes a leaflet about Winchester’s Muslim community, Hyde Parish Hall and general information. I have also supplied images of us at East London Mosque, Abu Bakr In Reading and Portsmouth Jamia Mosque, any help or guidance would be appreciated.
 
You may contact me on any of the details below.

The Messenger of Allah (saw) said: “Whoever builds a masjid (mosque) for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow’s nest or even smaller, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise.” (Sahih)

JazakAllah Khair
