Teen Ramadan scheme: Jama'ah and Quran
We have had a very competitive challenge with teenagers racking up points for attending the masjid for salah, bringing other teenage friends and staying back after salah to recite quran.
Students stayed back in groups after Zuhr, Asr and even Fajr reciting the Quran on both the boys and girls sides and participated in other events at the Madrassah also.
Alhamdulillah, many ended up spending more time in the Masjid than ever before.
May Allah accept it from them all. Ameen

Ad-Duha Expansion Project
In the year and a half that we have been open, there’s one issue we always run into… space.
Whether it’s for daily salah, Jummu’ah, children’s classes, adult’s classes, talks and reminders or even sisters’ events, we run out of space.
Hence an expansion project was launched with a goal to raise £18,000 which would enable us to:
- Increase our brother’s prayer hall capacity threefold whilst dedicating the second hall to sisters only.
- Hold extra adults classes, children’s classes, fun activities and events without turning anyone away.
- Accommodate sisters for Jummah, Eid and Taraweeh prayers insha’Allah
Alhamdulillah, support from everyone was overwhelming, with us both reaching and surpassing the target.
May Allah s.w.t reward everyone for their support and effort
Ramadan Reminders followed by Weekend Community Iftaars and Taraaweeh prayers were a great way for us to work on our character and keep spirituality levels high as well as enjoy yummy food from various backgrounds
