Jamia Islamia Presentation
Alhamdulillah, a lot of the major construction work for Jamia Islamia of Manchester (City Jamia Mosque) has now been completed. This includes the mortuary, electrics, PA system, CCTV, fire alarm and heating/cooling units. We need your generous support for the final stage of the project. Insha’Allah, we will make a push to get as much done by Ramadhan as possible insha’Allah. See photos posted below.
Your can donate online, via the bank or in person.
All legal action and negotiations with the property developers, Church Converts (Manchester), are now over. The Islamic Academy have successfully managed to secure a further 6 month extension following which we MUST vacate the building for redevelopment work to commence.
The date by which we must vacate the building is 16th October 2014. This means that we will spend one final Ramadhan in the building and celebrate both Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha here one last time, insha’Allah.
Our search for alternative accommodation is ongoing. For this we need your continued support and du’as. Once we locate another suitable place insha’Allah, we will need your financial support for the move to be viable.
