This is an Urgent Appeal to you our community members. We have a debt amount of over £120,000 and need your help to pay it back.
About the Appeal
It is only due to the will and with the permission of Allah we have reached the stage we are now at. However, we ask for your support in helping us to complete our current project.
With your help we aim to complete as much of our project as possible. This is required to cater for all of our students comfortably and safely and also allow us to deliver our current community projects. We will also be able to fulfill our future projects which will benefit the local and wider community.
You will no doubt already be aware of the rewards and virtues associated with contributing to this appeal. A reward so great putting numbers to it just isn’t possible. Such a reward which will go on forever.

Your Money Well Spent
Due to the academy being in such an early stage your donation will be paying for renovation and repair of the first floor hall.
Our hall will be multi-purpose and will cater for the madrassah, community projects as well as many other things. Making this a very unique opportunity due to what your money will be spent on. This is the chance to earn plentiful and continuous reward for you or for the esaal e sawaab of a loved one who has left this world.
What You Get in Return
This is now possibly the biggest investment you have ever made by becoming the means of students studying the Deen of Allah, in the hall which you paid for, every year for a very long time. InshaAllah.
On top of that you will be the means that Allah chose to allow us to provide many other benefits to the community. Our aims go much much further than children’s evening Islamic education.
No investment in this world can promise such a countlessly high guaranteed return. Until Bilal Academy continues to exist you will continue to reap the rewards. Reward exclusively for those who assisted in setting up the Academy in its early days.
The Proof of Your Return
In a hadith mentioned in Riyaad As-Saliheen our beloved Prophet ﷺ said: “When a person dies, their deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (endless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for them (for the deceased).”
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, ‘Verily, charity will protect people from the heat of the graves’. (Tabarani)
Not only does giving charity benefit you immensely in this world, it also protects you from the punishment of the grave. Moreover, it can actually bring happiness to people in their graves
‘Charity extinguishes sins just as water extinguishes fire’. (Ibn Majah)
The amount of charity you give can be small as half a date, but if you give it with a sincere intention, it can still remove your sins and protect you from the Fire. In times of hardship, you don’t have to be extravagantly generous – just give what you can with a pure intention. Every donation counts
Allah says in the Quran “The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a grain which produced seven ears; each ear having a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies the reward for whom He wills. And Allah is All-Embracing and All-Knowing.” (Quran 2:261)
Abu Huraira RadiAllahu Anhu reported: Muhammad The Messenger of Allah, ﷺ, peace and blessings be upon him said, “Take up good deeds only as much as you are able, for the best deeds are those done regularly even if they are few.” Sunan Ibn Mājah
