A Successful Fundraising Dinner for Bankstown Masjid was organized on Sunday, 15 June 2014 at The Croatian Club, Punchbowl by Saarban Islamic Trust.
The main speaker at the Dinner was Imam Uzair Akbar from Holland Park Mosque, Brisbane.
A large number of Muslims attended the event from all over Sydney including many distinguished guests. Alhamdulillah $200,000 was raised at the event due to the generosity of those present and contributions from some who couldn’t attend.
Saarban Islamic Trust, a division of Islamic Forum for Australian Muslims (IFAM) bought a commercial property at 30 Meredith Street Bankstown 2200 NSW in Sept 2011.
By the Grace of Allah for the past 3 years Bankstown Masjid has been establishing five daily prayers, Islamic Lectures, Workshops, Quran Classes for Kids, Quran Classes for Men, Taraweeh Prayers, Iftar Arrangements etc. A full time Imam was also appointed earlier this year.
The building now requires major refurbishment and extensions in order to accommodate the needs of the ever growing Muslim community.
The total amount required for the new building is $1.2M. For those who could not attend the fundraising Dinner, contributions can still be made by direct transfer.
Ramadan has commenced and the reward of every good deed is multiplied by 70 times.
