We have agreed the purchase of a property in Southampton for Al-Zahra Islamic Association, a charity formed by a group of Shias in Southampton. The agreement was Alhamdullah made on the first day of Ramadhan, a sign which gives us hope for the future of this project in the name of Fatemeh az Zahra (as) herself. The property purchase price is £325,000. We would allow £30,000 for extension and making the building suitable for our use. The total would be £355,000. We have already raised £121,510 and are now looking to raise £233,490 to complete this project.
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.
