In His Name, the Most High
Salaamu Alaikum Warahmat Allah,
This fundraising campaign is a great opportunity for members of the public to contribute towards the most important event in our calendar, Muharram.
As with every year, AIM is holding Muharram Majalis in the English language and we are honoured to confirm that Shaykh Hamza Sodagar and Shaykh Shomali will be joining us to deliver lectures.
As you can imagine, the cost for Muharram isn’t small and we need your help to make it happen. Our main costs go towards serving food for the mourners of Imam Hussain (as), hiring a large marquee to increase our capacity to host mourners, audio-visual and other logistical costs.
This is the majlis of Aba Abdillah Al-Hussain (as) who sacrificed everything he had to further the objectives of Islam, and so we ask you to help with what little you can to further these objectives and make them more accessible to the English speaking audiences.
Our approximate breakdown of costs are as follows:
Food per night for 600 people is £1000
Marquee hire with accessories for 10 days is £4500
Audio-visual costs are £3500
Travel, accommodation, security, cleaners and other miscellaneous costs are £4000
That gives us a grand total of £22,000. We have already raised around £12,000 and have created this page for the remaining £10,000.
For those who wish to donate money towards food for one of the nights, please make your donation and then email us on [email protected] to let us know of any requests for reciting Surat Al-Fatiha for your deceased or prayers for those who are unwell.
Please note: Any surplus money will be spent on furthering Islamic projects in the future.
