The Construction of the Al Qaeem Project of the Peterborough Jamaat (UK) is underway and the Jamaat has a current shortfall of 1.2 million pounds and Mumineen are requested to donate generously towards this project.
The Al Qaeem Project has been approved by both the Council of European Jamaats and The World Federation. Details of the Project are available at http://www.alqaaem.org/
Mumineen wishing to pay from the Sehme Imam [A.S.] portion of the khums are able to do so with the permission of the Ijaza of Ayatullah al Uzma Syed Ali Hussein Al Seestani accorded to The World Federation.
The full amount of Khums [Sehme Imam A.S. and Sehme Sadat] should be forwarded to either The Council of European Jamaats or to The World Federation stating the specific purpose of Sehme Imam [A.S.]. Agha Seestani’s receipt will be issued accordingly. The Sehme Imam portion, in strict compliance with the Ijaza would then be remitted to The Muslim Khoja Shia Ithna Asheri Community of Peterborough for The Al-Qaaem Project.
One of the most sacred days in the Shia Muslim calendar was commemorated Nov. 9, as area Shia gathered at the Masjid-e-Ali Mosque on Cedar Grove Lane to remember the martyred grandson of the Prophet Mohammad.
