Waqf Fund

Reasons for starting a Waqf fund

Alghamdulillah, our community has experienced a tremendous growth over the last ten years and with this, there is an increased responsibility on our shoulders to provide and more importantly maintain adequate facilities not just for us but our future generations as well. With this in mind, we have resolved to set up a Waqf Fund to amongst others, cater for the long term sustainability of all the various initiatives that the Society provides to the benefit of the community at large. These include inter alia a fully operational Beitul Maal & soup kitchen, a youth & leadership development program, Madrassah, free adult classes and a whole host of other initiatives that require constant funding.

Benefits of contributing to our Waqf Fund

Promoting independence and self reliance.
Leaving a legacy which future generations will be justly proud of.
You are giving a “beautiful loan” (qard hassan) to Allah, for His pleasure.
Sadaqatul Jaariyya – perpetual Thawaab until Qiyamah
Contributing towards becoming an empowered, influential, and benevolent community

Our First Waqf Project

We are proud to announce that our first initiative was the acquisition of a property situated adjacent to the current Masjied complex at number 140 Goulburn Street. This property will Inshaa Allah serve the dual purpose of providing both a rental income as well as serving some of the other requirements of the Society.

How can we benefit

To contribute to and start reaping the rewards of this Waqf, you can choose to either make a once off contribution or commit to a fixed monthly payment. All payments to be made directly into the Waqf Fund bank account details.
