“I’ve been coming to see you for over a decade, each time I see the conditions of your Madrassah deteriorating. Why have you not asked me for donations?” The scholar’s eyes welled and he finally opened up. “Since you’ve asked, I will tell you. For over 25 years, there hasn’t been a day where I have not missed a Tahajjud (night prayer) in this very masjid. I asked Allah, ‘Oh Allah, this is Your house. If You want someone to build it, then You build it and send me someone to help build it. I will not ask the people for money.’”
Sheikh Hasan was both moved and inspired by the Sheikh’s reliance on Allah, He came back to the UK and by the Grace of Allah raised £100,000. He raised a further £400,000 for a second institute!
Today we continue to support and raise funds to see the completion of this Madrassa. There is still a way to go. It could be you who is the answer to the Scholar’s Dua. Be a part of this legacy.
