MESSAGE FROM HAJI AHMED DUNGERSI - HON. SECRETARY - HUSAINI SHIA ISLAMIC CENTRE
 

I am grateful to Allah (S.W.T.) for granting me tawfik and good health which made it possible for me to serve this community for the past 6 years (1983 to 1989). This meagre contribution of mine is entirely for the pleasure of none but Allah (S.W.T)

When we embarked on the mammoth task of acquiring a property and building a multi- purpose centre many eyebrows were raised and in all honesty even our sanity was questioned. The whole project was treated as one big joke.

Today, Alhamdulillah our dream has come true. Husaini Shia Islamic Centre has come to being and is now used extensively for religious and social activities.

A project of such enormous magnitude would not have been achieved without the involvement, commitment and sacrifice of the members of the Community. I can only say (Ahsante sana) to all those who have sacrificed their time, expertise and wealth. Only Allah (S.W.T) can reward them here and in the hereafter. Ameen

MESSAGE FROM HAJI HABIB JAFFERALI MULJI THE CHAIRMAN OF THE FEDERATION FOR KHOJA SHIA ITHNA- ASHERI JAMAATS OF AFRICA

 
I feel very much honored and delighted to have been asked to contribute a message for the Commemorative Souvenir marking of official opening of the Husaini Islamic Centre, Stanmore in U.K.

When reviewing the Stanmore Project, one is constrained to give due cognizance to its multi-dimensional function. This very fact speaks volumes for those who conceived the idea and prepared the groundwork.

On the one hand, the Husaini Islamic Centre is able to cater for the multifarious activities of the London Jamaat, which now has adequate facilities necessary for the provision of services related to its religious and social activities.

On the other hand, by housing the Secretariat of the World Federation of Khoja Shia Ithna- Asheri Muslim Communities, the complex becomes the headquarters of our Community Worldwide. The importance of the World Federation cannot be under-rated; Necessity of permanent and adequate facilities for a Secretariat can also therefore not be undermined. The Centre has succeeded in meeting important communal needs. The existence of the Madressa Syeed al-Khui in the complex is another important dimension of the project managed by the World Federation.

The Madressa will, Insha’allah, meet a religious obligation of immense proportions.

 It is the evident therefore that conceptually all possible needs were catered for. Obviously a lot of time effort and money must have been invested to crystallize the concept. The coming to fruition of the project bears testimony to the co-operation of all concerned I am confident that the Almighty Allah will reward them for all their contribution (Aameen).

The entire membership of the Africa Federation joins me in the extending felicitations to the Khoja Shia Ithna-asheri Muslim Community of London on this auspicious occasion. History will undoubtedly record the magnitude of the project and the efforts required in its successful completion.

Our community throughout the world will look up on the centre with great hope and shall expect it to focus the beacon of light for spiritual and social advancement.

Wassalam.
