The work will be undertaken in phases, to deliver the least amount of disruption.

We are creating an itinerary with associated costs the community can contribute and pledge towards.

We have witnessed that the community has outgrown the building within three years. The charity requests donors for this cause are open to TEF utilising funds generated being liquidated and used towards procuring a larger sitein the Lindley Ward Area.

Help build the fund and cover our future heating needs.

Highfields Car Park
The Highfields car park is leased from the council.

The KMC have agreed to sell the land for total cost of £135k.

The car park purchase will secure the future parking needs for the Maktab, Masjid, Community functions, Food Bank & Scouts initiatives running from the site.
Crosland Moor Car Park
The Crosland Moor Site was purchased in 2013 and renovation completed in 2015 with a cost of approximately £750k.

It is a multi-use building offering nursery, tuition, Maktab, adult education classes, meeting rooms and other community functions.

We are excited to announce that we have purchased the land adjacent to the building and it has been granted planning approval to allow the centre to expand the available safe parking, act as an enclosed play area for the children, enhance the appeal and ambience of the local area with sculpted boundaries.
Fidyah
This is the compensation for missing Ramadhan fasts due to one being terminally ill or has passed away (in which case it is given out of a third of their inheritance).
The compensation for each missed fast is to give a Fidyah (which is the same amount given for Sadaqah al-Fitr) to the poor.

Kaffarah
This is a major compensation. If a person breaks a fast intentionally or breaks an oath, Kaffarah would then be binding as the form of redemption.
If a Ramadhan fast is broken intentionally, one would need to fast for sixty consecutive days – which is the Kaffarah – and then observe one qadha fast.
If more than one fast is broken intentionally, one will be required to compensate with one Kaffarah – by fasting sixty consecutive days – and a qadha fast for each extra fast broken.
If one cannot do these fasts due to poor health or old age then one must feed sixty poor persons.
For redemption of a broken oath, a person may feed ten poor persons.
We suggest that the amount to feed one person be set at £3.30 and given to the most needy as determined by our charity partners. This amount should be multiplied according to the number persons to be fed.
Ramadhan Iftar for Needy
100% Donation Policy "Feed one poor person for £1". Covid restrictions might mean we are unable to host iftaar dinners or donate Iftar to our local masjid. So this year, why not feed a poor family for a day or for a month.

Don't miss out on the reward for providing Iftar. “Whoever gives Iftar to one who is fasting will have a reward like his, without that detracting from the fasting person’s reward in the slightest.” (Hadith, Tirmidhi).
