Updated 27-10-13

These are the pictures a spromised that I just recieved from Germany Subhan'Allah

Please note: We only helped raise some funds for this, all the hard work was done by the sr who approached me and her family too Masha'Allah.

Assalaamu alaykum wa Rahmatulaahi wa Barakatu,

All praise is for Allah alone
We are in urgent need of funds to help repay a debt for a Masjid project in Herford Germany.
Below is the building they purchased which was previously a night club. The community had borrowed 30,000 euros from a German lady which they knew but unfortunately she has now returned to Allah. Her family are demanding that they repay her money now and have started legal action against them to recover the money. They gave them until the end of January to pay it all back and as you know it is now the start of February.

Update 4th Feb 2013. This is the international payment details for the Masjid to pay donations direct. 

 Account  Name:Islamischer kultur verein e.v.
Bank Name: SparKase Herford  
Iban number: DE38494501200101002715  Bic number WLAHDE44x x x 

Work is well underway

As you can imagine, if this debt is not re payed now this will have a detrimental effect on the whole community. Below is a letter from Mayfair Islamic Centre in London who have verified this need as they know the brothers personally Alhamdulillah.

We all know the virtues of one, building a Masjid and two, helping to re pay the debt of another.

On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) who said, ” Whoever relieves a believer’s distress of the distressful aspects of this world, Allah will rescue him from a difficulty of the difficulties of the Hereafter. Whoever alleviates [the situation of] one in dire straits who cannot repay his debt, Allah will alleviate his lot in both this world and in the Hereafter. Whoever conceals [the faults of] a Muslims, Allah will conceal [his faults] in this life and the Hereafter. Allah is helping the servant as long as the servant is helping his brother. Whoever follows a path in order to seek knowledge thereby, Allah will make easy doe him, due to it, a path to Paradise. No people gather together in a house of the houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah and studying it among themselves, except that tranquility descended upon them, mercy covers them, the angels surround them and Allah makes mention of them to those in His presence. Whoever is slowed by his deeds will not be hastened forward by his lineage.” (Recorded in Muslim)

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Among what continues to accrue for a believer of his good works after death are the following: knowledge that he learned and then imparted to others, a pious child whom he left behind, a copy of the Qur’ân that he bequeathed, a mosque that he built, a guest house he built for travelers, a river that he made to flow, and charity he spends from his wealth when he is in good health – all of this continues to avail him after his death.” [Sunan Ibn Majah and Sunan al-Bayhaqî – and graded as good (hasan) by al-Albânî] 
Please do give as much as your able and your reward is with Allah
You can donate either through Paypal to or direct  to their bank. I will add the details shortly once they are confirmed Insha'Allah and please share this with all on your Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp and all the social media sites so we be of those who relieved the hardship of so many Subhan'Allah.
