Annual Report 2020
Alhumdulillah (praise be to Allah), 2020 was the year of Covid. It has been extremely sad and difficult with many of our community members passing away; “Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon” (to Allah we belong and to Him we return). We pray that Allah gives them all Jannah and gives their families
I can honestly say that this year was unexpected and unprecedented. Back in March 2020, we were one of the first mosques to close after consulting with our scholars, public health officials and medical practitioners. It was extremely hard for many, particularly our elders, for whom the masjid is an integral part of their daily worship and life.
This led to us not only cancelling our regular mosque activities (i.e., daily congregational prayers, Friday prayers and Ramadan activities), but a number of other major services, including our first ever umrah trip. We had just launched new welfare services including an education surgery and job club
and were also due to launch new youth activities, such as kids boxing. All of this had to be put on hold.
However, alhamdulillah it wasn’t all doom and gloom! Through adversity, Allah can bring about much good and there were abundant opportunities for us to continue to help others. I am glad to say that the entire team stepped up to support our community in so many ways.
2019 Annual Report
Alhamdulillah, it’s an honour to be able to present yet another annual report. 2019 is the year, where as a Masjid, we have seen the greatest overall growth in our services, projects and departments across the board. Allah (SWT) has allowed us, through His mercy and blessings, to greatly diversify the nature of our welfare services, educational programmes and social events. As a result, we have had an unprecedented amount of positive engagement with our community, local organisations and national media this year. We pray that Allah (SWT) accepts the efforts of those who have worked tirelessly throughout the year.
I sincerely hope this report will highlight the impact that our work has had not only on the Muslim community, but also on the wider community, irrespective of race, religion or background. As Muslims, we believe that we must show gentleness, compassion and concern towards all of humanity. We strive to uphold a high level of character, and believe that good moral character is of the finest ways to present Islam for what it is: a beautiful way of life for all.
