All praise is due Allah Almighty and salutations to the beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
“O you who believe! Spend of that with which we provided for you, before a Day comes when there will be no bargaining, nor friendship, nor intercession. And it is the disbelievers who are the Zaalimoon (wrong doers)” al – Baqarah 2:254.
Alhamdulillah, with masterful performance by the Chief Guest, the star attraction of the night, a distinguished fund raiser Br. Shaik Ahmed Shehab and a full capacity of audience in excess of 600 brothers, sisters and children was a delightful set up for an exciting evening of fund raising.
We raised approximately One Hundred and Twenty Thousand Dollars ($120,000.00) which In Shaa Allah would be utilised for facility and technology upgrades for the benefit of our children at Surrey Muslim School. Jazaak Allahu Wa Khairan to all the donors.
Thanks to Allah Almighty for His graciousness , a heartfelt thanks to the members of the Executive, to all the officials at Branch and Chapter levels, members of the Board of Education, teachers, parents and members at large. A special salutation for the efforts of our hard working members at the Head Office, a dream team indeed, that was fully dedicated in their quest to making this fund raising an absolute success.
