Build a Masjid for Hafiz Ilyas B.G. Sheikh

In loving memory of our beloved Papa/Brother/Uncle/Nana Hafiz Ilyas B. G Sheikh (Nuneaton) we would like to build a Ma
sjid that will benefit him in the hereafter.

From a very young age he sacrificed his childhood to learn about deen and become a hafiz, after which he taught quran in the local madressah. 

In recent years despite his ill health he remained calm, positive and full of life in his jolly ways. He had a big heart and was a friend to all regardless of age.
He was such a happy character, made us all laugh and would always take out the time to speak to you. 

May Allah grant him the highest place in Jannah and forgive all of his sins. Ameen. 

‎ما نقصتْ صدقة من مال
“Charity does not decrease wealth”

In sha Allah with your kind support we hope to raise £50, 000 to build a masjid as sadaqah jaariyah for our dear Papa.
This masjid will be built in Albania where there is a great need for the Muslim population. 

انا الله و أنا إليه راجعون


رَسُولَ اللَّهِ ﷺ : إِذَا مَاتَ ابنُ آدم انْقَطَعَ عَنْهُ عَمَلُهُ إِلَّا مِنْ ثَلَاثٍ: صَدَقَةٍ جَارِيَةٍ، أو عِلْمٍ يُنْتَفَعُ بِهِ، أَوْ وَلَدٍ صَالِحٍ يَدْعُو

“When a person dies, his deeds come to an end, except for three: ongoing charity (Sadaqah Jariyah), knowledge that is benefited from, and a righteous child who prays for him.” (Sahih Muslim)

Please  share & donate generously. (lillah only) 

Our mosque will be built in conjunction with Rahma Mercy charity, Zain Moti from Rahma Mercy will be our point of contact for the masjid project.
