We cannot emphasise enough the importance of engaging the youth.
We have a number of initiatives we would like to invest in for the youth along the lines of a scout set up; where we can teach the children life skills but also take them on excursions. This will include character building and discipline as well as increase them in their attachment to the Masjid and good company.
We have already bought a table tennis table to be able to reward students in our Madrassah classes and have raised money for two more. These items encourage our young to do well in class and be best behaved, which in turn improves the class environment and makes it more conducive to learning.
Our Madrassah fees are very minimal and just about cover the teachers’ salaries so we have to raise money for these extra initiatives. But these are the key ideas and actions that will give motivation and fond memories to keep our young linked to the Masjid for years to come.
Generosity is not expressed exclusively with wealth and money, but also with our time, good deeds, actions and kindness to all people. Allah Jalla Jalaalahu says (what means): “Never will you attain the good [reward] until you spend [in the way of Allah] from that which you love…”[Quran 3: 92]
We genuinely want you to join us as people power is the vital resource we are in need of. However, if you are too busy at the moment to join then please help fund the many initiatives we are trying to implement for the community and ultimately please Allah Jalla Jalaalahu and His Habib Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Aalihi wa Sahbihi wa Sallam.
Whatever is spent will return multiplied and Allah will increase it in this world and in the next. Allah Jalla Jalaalahu says (what means): “The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and all-Knowing.” [Quran 2: 261]
God is the One who provides for us and He expects us to share generously. We are encouraged to be benevolent and unselfish with our possessions, with our time and with our exemplary behaviour towards others.
