We have agreed the purchase of a property in the city Southampton, to establish and run a shia centre for the surrounding community. Through your generous donations or khums money you can help us establish this centre for the current and future shia population in the south of England – a great source of sadaqah jariya for you.
The property, situated in a prime location in Southampton, has a purchase price of £427,000, with further £30,000 for refurbishments equating to a total of £457,000 for the whole project. Having raised around £271000 thus far, we are continuing, with the help of people, to raise the further £156200 required for buying the property. Without your help the Al-Zahra centre will not be possible.
Al-Zahra Islamic Association (ZIA) was established and officially registered as a charity organization in 2011 by a group of Shia Muslims in the south of England, aiming to spread the knowledge of Shia Islam. ZIA organises religious and social activities in the region including; running Islamic events, promoting ethical and religious values, commemorating religious occasions and many other activities. These comprise the main goals and ethos of our association. In addition, over the last five years ZIA has carried out a number of charitable and humanitarian activities.
