Al-Zahra Project (Report)

The Al-Zahra Project was conceived during the holy month of Muharram in 2015 with the ultimate goal of establishing a Shia centre in Southampton to address the growing needs of the Shia community in the area. Over the last 3 years we have been running a fundraising campaign to raise the required money for buying a suitable property. By the grace of Allah (s.w.t) and through the generosity of Mumenin, we have managed to raise a considerable sum of £187,078 so far.

During the past 3 years we have come across a number of properties that could meet our requirements. The price of those properties ranged from £300,000 to £500,000, making them unaffordable for us.

Fortunately, on the last day of the holy month of Ramadan, we found and agreed the purchase of an affordable property. Being located in the heart of the city, this property provides us with an internal space of 175 square meters which can accommodate most of our community immediate needs. The purchase price of this two-storey industrial unit is £195,000 and a further £25,000 is required for refurbishments and equipment.

Insha’Allah we will shortly exchange the contract for purchasing this property. We hope that with the help of Allah (s.w.t) and generosity of Mumenin, the required £32,922 is raised and the purchase is completed soon and the building can host the majalis of Muharram this year, insha’Allah.
