The Tasibeh Girls School have a Friday prayer session and as part of this, local women gather together (80-95 women). The qualified Allamas facilitate the prayer session with the help of the women from the community. They come from six different villages in the surrounding area.
The room in the school is now much too small as the group has grown over the years from 40 women attending to 80-95 women attending now. During Ramadan month over 300+ women attend. There is a need for the women to come together and have their own place. Where they can have talks, do their prayers and borrow books from a library on Islam in order to increase their learning.
We are currently raising funds for a Community Prayer Room. This hall will also provide an opportunity for women (who have a death in their family) to come together as a group and read, they will be able to borrow the Qurans free of charge. The room will also provide space for Islamic events for women. As you know in Pakistan, women don’t have a place, the “mosque is for the men”.
We have already raised £13,000 to start the building of the hall and work has already started. We are now appealing for money towards prayer mats, Islamic books, carpets, tiles, plants/trees in the garden and electrical equipment etc. We need to raise a further £15,000
