Support for Masjid Application


Assalam-alaikam,

The planning application for the Abbey Mills Riverine Centre Masjid in East London is currently going through a public consultation.  The masjid has received a lot of unfair and inaccurate press over the last few years.  My husband and various family members regularly attend the masjid and it has been so beneficial for them to be able to attend weekly lectures and talks from scholars around the world, particularly with a focus being on dawah.

Unfortunately some people have gone to great lengths (various leaflet drops, high street protests, articles in local newspapers) to create fear in the local community in the hope that this fear will force the locals to speak against this planning application. With this in mind we need to make sure as many Muslims as possible show support for this application.

Anyone in the UK can comment on the application.  Please show your support for this project by emailing the following:

(With your name, address and ref) to development. control@newham. gov.uk 
Use application ref: 12/00358/LTGOUT and say you support this project

Please ask all your friends and family to the same please. London Borough of Newham would use support for the masjid as a key to planning permission (application summary here), this is why it’s important. Your support today would become a Sadaqa-e-jariah for you insha’Allah.

Jazakallah khair
 
Umm Salihah
