Proposed Islamic Centre at Masjid Jamek KL
In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful.
Insya Allah, if my plans go well and no hindrances arise, this building which houses the Meeting Hall of the Masjid Jamek Bandaraya K .Lumpur will soon be tranformed into an Islamic Centre to cater for the growing number of visitors to this most historical mosque in the capital!
I am in the midst of finishing the working papers for the setting up of the Islamic Centre and have the tacit approval of the Mosque Committee members and patron in the form of the Chairman of the Ubaidi Trust Foundation.
I have received a substantial number of Quran English, Malay, Mandarin, Spanish and Tamil Translations from the Islamic Counsellor's Office of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia plus some Comprehensive Guidebooks , gifts from the Islamic Outreach Department of the Malaysian Muslim Youth Movement @ ABIM, KL.
I invite those of you who are interested to join us as volunteers in our Islamic Centre by emailing me your contact details at firstname.lastname@example.org
As you can see, the hall is already well equipped with the necessary library facilities, whiteboard, tables, chairs, airconditioned, etc.
Just add in a few easy chairs, counters, audio visual equipment, brochure cabinets, etc and we will have a practical information centre that will cater well to our visitors from all over the world, Insya Allah!
Wasted spaces can be best utilised by putting in the extra effort to fully utilise and maximise usage of available facilities instead of letting it go to waste and the visitors just go around the mosque complex , snap a few photos and just leave without gaining some precious information about Islam during their visit.
Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala commands us to 'Invite All (Mankind) to the Way of Our Lord with Wisdom and Beautiful Preaching and to Reason with them ( the Non Muslims) in Ways that are Best and Most Gracious'.
Surah An Nahl Verse 125 ,
Holy Al Qur'an .
Come join us in this noble efforts!
All are welcome especially those who have good Islamic Knowledge and are fluent in English, Mandarin, Malay, Tamil, Spanish, French, Italiano, etc. Those who are good in sign languages are also needed!
At first we will be operating totally on a voluntary basis. As and when we get our finances stabilised, we will pay an allowance to you. It's all ikhlas fi sabilillah for the sake of Allah SWT!
We will be operating during weekends at first and as we get more volunteers, we will be operating daily in the long run. Please do'a for us. Insya Allah.
