“Whosever builds a Mosque for Allah, then Allah will build for him a similar house in Paradise.” (Hadith, Sahih Bukhari)
Allah in all His mercy and compassion has allowed us to live in a country where we have the freedom to practice our religious observations peacefully and sustainably.
We have mosques and schools, Islamic organisations and groups representing the Muslim community, catering to our religious needs, and striving for the betterment of our communities every day. These places assist in the development of exemplary citizens that make positive contributions for themselves, their communities, their nation and the world.
We are very fortunate that we are free to raise our children to uphold the wholesome values instilled in us by the noble Qur’an and the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammed (s) which in many ways are synonymous with the law of this land, founded on wholesome Christian values. We have so much to be grateful for, Alhamdulillah.
One organisation that was built on these very foundations is Al Siraat College, the investment project built by Barakah Properties. Al Siraat College is dedicated to instilling the values of respect, sincerity, integrity, responsibility, perseverance and benefitting others in all their students. Al Siraat College is also one of the few schools in Australia that has a Hifz program, based in Melbourne’s booming outer-north.
The long term sustainability of companies like Barakah Properties relies heavily on their investors. These investors are directly contributing to the development of facilities for current and future generation of Muslims, while gaining a modest but consistent financial return. As for the returns expected in the afterlife, its a reward that keeps multiplying.
Now consider the reward for every letter of the Qur’an that one child learns at this school. The child is rewarded for learning, the teacher is rewarded for teaching, the parents are rewarded for encouraging their child, the founders are rewarded for facilitating this learning platform and the investors are rewarded for making it possible to build the infrastructure where it all takes place.
It’s a ripple effect of rewards for the entire progeny of that child that continue on the path of Qur’an and Sunnah. Now consider the hundreds of children that study there now and the hundreds that will study there in years to come. This is the opportunity for barakah that Barakah Properties offers investors.
It doesn’t end there, apart from the continued development of Al Siraat College, Barakah Properties are also scheduled to start building a masjid for the growing population of Muslims in Melbourne’s outer north.
The demand is high, the resources are necessary. Just last year Al Siraat College Musallah was expanded to accommodate for well over 400 people that attend the Friday congregation, a temporary measure to cater to increased demand.
Supporting Australian schools in the Islamic tradition has never been more important. Their platforms for community engagement throughout the year ensure correct representation of Muslims, and the value they add to communities, contrary to the many efforts made to discredit the Ummah. These schools are proactive in strengthening community ties, building strong, resilient, cohesive and inclusive communities.
