Mosque Steel Structure Erected

As some of you may have already seen, with the Grace of Allah, the mosque steel structure was erected. This is a significant milestone for the project and you can all see the progress from now on.

The recent construction activities like the piling and now the steel structure will cost significantly so we need to continue raising money. We need you to continue helping us to raise funds so we can complete our mosque project.

Piling Work Successfully Completed

Alhamdulillah, piling work was successfully completed  on the 11th of August 2015.

This was an expensive but an important operation and milestone. As all the work below ground is completed, all future work will be above ground and easy for you to see the progress. The concrete piles need  2-3 weeks to settle down before starting work on the above ground beams.

Piling work will cost around £130,000 so we will run out of money quickly in the coming weeks so please start your efforts for fund raising.

Please make dua that the project progresses smoothly and that we raise the required funds.

Assalam aleikum | Peace be upon you,

By the Grace of God, the construction work officially started today with a ceremony to celebrate this milestone.

The event started with the recitation of Quran followed by a reminder by Imam Atikur Rehman Patel about the role and true definition of a Masjid. He explained that a mosque  is more than a mere 4 walls but rather the real spiritual centre for our community. He also emphasised respecting the rights of the neighbours surrounding the Masjid, the assistance to the needy and finally establishing the night prayer.

This was followed by a brief recap from the chairman of the Islamic Association of Lincoln, Dr Tanweer Ahmed on the journey to get to this point and heartfelt thanks to all those who have contributed to make this day a reality. He thanked the Boultham Park residents, Lincoln City Council and the wider Lincoln community who have all supported us along the way. Dr Ahmed particularly thanked Muslim community for their generous donations and hard work, he added that without their support and help, today day was not possible. He also discussed the war memorial and highlighted the Muslim contribution in the first world war and emphasised our shared values.

Reverend David Osbourne of Boultham Park spoke on the significance of the mosque as an opportunity to build and strengthen our communities.

Ian Durrant, the Boultham Residents’ Association chairman also reiterated the importance of community cohesion and welcomed our Muslim community into the heart of the neighbourhood.

The City of Lincoln Leader, Ric Metcalfe said the mosque was long overdue and praised the resilience and enthusiasm of the Muslim community in the face of challenges and setbacks.

The ceremony was concluded with a dua by the Imam.

The event was also covered by some of the local media such as the BBC and Lincolnshire Echo.

ITV also posted a video of Dr. Ahmed’s speech.

Here are some of the pictures from the event.
