The Property

We have agreed the purchase of a property in Southampton in order to establish a Shia centre in the city. You can turn this project into Sadaqah Jariyah for yourself or a departed love one by giving your donations or Khums and help us with the purchase of the property. The property is in a prime location in Southampton and its purchase price is £427,200. In addition, we would allow £30,000 for the extension and making the building suitable as an Islamic center. The total budget required is £457,000. We have already raised around £125,000 and are now looking to raise £332,000 to complete this project.
