Masjid Investment Plan 2018
Asalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu
All praise is due to Allah (SWT) who is the most kind and most merciful. Masjid Al-Qudus, Katuuso has always depended on the cash collections done at the end of every salat since its inception. These collections have always gotten fewer and fewer while the list of expenses has kept growing.
The development of Katuuso, Konge and Buziga and all the sorrounding areas has increased the population in this area which in turn has increased the number of needy people. More so, the development of the mosque has led to increase in salat attendants which has in turn increased the list of bills as well as the size of costings. The one thing that never increases proportionately is the collections.
Just as well, very few people are paying their Zakat and sometimes the Sadaq comes in materialistic items which cannot be used to pay the mosque dues.
Because of all this, the Masjid Youth Committee has come up with an investment plan that can keep funding the Masjid's numerous projects and make it less dependent on individual handouts that never come on time.
From a number of proposed ideas by the youth members, one idea was voted on unanimously. This plan involves purchasing TENTS and PLASTIC CHAIRS & TABLES that are in high demand for outdoor events hire. This plan has been welcomed and approved by the Management Committee.
The idea is to own tents and plastic chairs & tables that can always be hired out at a fee, making money for the Mosque. This business needs less expertise, less capital, and not a lot of time is invested in running it. It allows the Masjid to not only gain some good money to run different projects, but also helps some of its members to acquire jobs to better their livelihoods. And it is long lasting since the chairs and tents are durable.
After a good round of reaserch on the different manufacturers of Tents and Plastic furniture, a budget was drawn for the items that could start us off.
Getting the Capital
The Management is counting on collecting the funds from the members and well wishers of the mosque. They are promoting the giving as a "Sadaqah Jariyah", an act of voluntary ongoing charity that can continue long after an individual has passed, so long as the benefits of the act continue to be felt by others. We rely on the kindness and generosity of our donors to ensure that the mosque and all its projects are supported on both a short-term and long-term basis.
Here, we can procure different sized tents that can be hired for different functions e.g. Weddings, Parties, Aqiqas, Graduations, Meetings, Funerals etc. The quotation is for a complete tent that includes Poles (legs), Roof, Back Cover. Canopy tents are prefered since they are currently trending, and white is the colour of choice. These can then be embroided with the Masjid's brand.

Dear Brothers and Sisters, we urgently need your contributions to execute this investment plan. Please give for yourself, or your family, or your deceased ones. The Prophet (PBUH) said: "When a man dies, nothing lives on after him, except for three things: sadaqah jariyah (continuing charity), knowledge which can benefit others, or virtuous offspring who will pray for him.”
Allah has blessed us with the ability to continue accumulating rewards even while we are buried under the ground. One of the ways we are able to do so, as mentioned in the hadeeth is via continuing charity. This can come in many forms but it is ultimately something that has a long term effect and which people benefit from even after you have left the dunya.
