عَنْ عُقْبَةَ بْنِ عَامِرٍ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم " يَوْمُ عَرَفَةَ وَيَوْمُ النَّحْرِ وَأَيَّامُ التَّشْرِيقِ عِيدُنَا أَهْلَ الإِسْلاَمِ وَهِيَ أَيَّامُ أَكْلٍ وَشُرْبٍ " .
Uqbah bin Amir narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: "The Day of Arafah, the Day of Nahr, and the Days of Tashriq are Eid for us. The people of Islam, and they are days of eating and drinking." [Jami` at-Tirmidhi, 8:92]
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
Loughborough is a beautiful, leafy town situated in Leicestershire. It's home to an estimated 5,000 resident Muslims and a sizable student population served by two Mosques with a maximum capacity of just over 1,000 worshippers combined. Facilities for women and children are severely lacking, especially for communal activities; locals are forced to use facilities provided by Loughborough University which is straining relations between the Islamic Society and University Chaplaincy.
For these reasons, we're setting up the Loughborough Muslim Centre; a Community Centre and hub where everyone would be welcome, irrespective of age, gender, background or belief. We would like a place for the whole community especially a place where young people, women and children feel welcome.
Where will my donations go?
We're determined to only spend your donations on the purchase and upkeep of a building and facilities for the purpose of the Community Centre. We know that God is witness to the trust you put in us and he commands us in the Qur'ān:
"O you who have believed, do not betray Allāh and the Messenger or betray your trusts while you know (the consequence)." [Al-Anfāl, 27]
Any other costs will be covered by us, and not from donations.
