‘Alhamdulillah, Masjid Abrar is the only masjid in the area where Jumu’ah Salaat is offered. Also it is the only Islamic information centre of its kind in the region if not the country where there is an after school and weekend madrassah, Islamic library etc.
At the moment there is construction going on to extend the building as we have more students on our waiting list who don’t have a place due to insufficient classrooms and on Friday the place is not big enough to contain the people that turn up for Jumu’ah Salaah.
The Islamic information centre is also actively involved in the efforts of Dawah, distribution of Quraan, Islamic literature books /leaflets etc. and other Islamic activities that will benefit the Ummah. After the construction the Masjid will be able to take about 500 or more people and there will be a Hifz class. InshAllah
This was an update from brother Ibrahim in our Caravan of Mercy office in Ghana regarding our project there.
Inshallah, Molana Ebrahim, another brother from Sajid Chaus of Leicester and 2 more volunteers from London, Asif Sheikh (Standford Hill) & Yusuf Mangera (Clapton) are due to travel to Bangladesh and India this month (25th January 2013) for 9 days.
The main objective of this trip is to commence the SSPs (Self Sustaining progects) in and around our bases which are Sunamganj, Sirajganj and Kurigram (Bangladesh). And in and around our base, Lalpur, Mathurapur, in West Bengal, India. The four man party is due to land in Dhaka on the 24th January 2013. From there they should travel north to Sunamganj via Sylet.
The last destination of the tour will be Delhi to organise the shipment of Qurans and other literature for Caravan Of Mercy to be sent to West Africa.
Sunamganj, Bangladesh, is close to the Indian border (Meghalaya state). The villages are very poor, backward and remote with abject poverty. This will be the fouth year that Caravan Of Mercy has been conducting SSPs (Self Supporting Projects) in this area.

We have printed 20,000 Qurans for Ghana. ‘Interpretation of the meanings of the Noble Quran’ contain both Arabic as well as English text. The translation is by Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al Hilali and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan. It features explainations from Sahih Al Bukhari. The front and back covers are being printed now in India and almost ready for dispatch.
Each book cost £3.00 (cost covers transport, printing and distribution). Inshallah this consignment will be delivered to Tema, Accra (location of our Ghana office) in February 2013 and from there the Qurans will be delivered to different locations throughout Ghana.
The cost of this project have been met but we still need funds for future Quran distribution.
As part of this consignment, we plan to include Islamic Dawah literature as well as French tranlated Qurans for neighbouring countries. After visiting Ghana recently, Maulana Ebrahim saw first hand how much the locals are crying out for knowledge. Please donate English books and literature for dawah. Please donate lillah by phoning CoM on 0116 276 3344 or use this website to make a donation using your bank/ credit card.
We need donations now for the added literature.
