Consultation process – Future of Tan Bank

 Supporting the masjid and community


As we near the final fitting for the phase one of the masjid, the Trustees are already thinking of the next phase of the project. This entails the provision of funeral facilities (body storage, washing and ancillary building and equipment) and refurbishment of the garage for community use. Also included will be the refurbishment of the car parking area to heavy usage commercial standards.

The above can only happen with the continuing support and the generosity of the community.  Most of the problems in delaying the completion of phase one was because there was never enough money to complete the project in one go. We want to avoid start/stop with future phases of the work, which will only officially start when we have the money to pay for them.

The Jumma collection just about covers the running costs, which will increase further as we formally commence full usage of the King St Masjid as the Telford Central Mosque, with 5 daily prayers. Until such time as the future of Tan Bank is decided, there will continue to be ongoing running and maintenance costs with that building too.

As we start the new year we are therefore asking as many people as possible to set up standing orders towards finishing off the current work in progress (approximately £25,000 needed) and then building up sufficient funds for the next phases of work. Allah has blessed many of us with good jobs and businesses, and many in the congregation will mashallah be in a healthy financial situation and will want to seek the mercy, pleasure and blessing of Allah for this noble cause. For many the amounts will be equivalent to £1 a day or one take-away a week.

Our target is:

50 people donating £100 a month
40 people donating £75 a month
30 people donating £50 a month
20 people donating £25 a month
50 people donating £10 a month

From January 2019 we will provide a monthly update against the above target numbers of standing order to inform and inspire others.

Update February 2019

1 person donating £100 a month (remaining 49)
0 people donating £75 a month (remaining 40)
3 people donating £50 a month (remaining 47)

Shropshire Islamic Foundation is a registered Islamic charity. It incorporates the Telford Central Mosque (King St), Tan Bank Mosque, Telford Islamic Academy and STUWA*.

The Foundation has its headquarters in the West Midland’s town of Telford, within the scenic county of Shropshire. Telford is 48 kilometres west of Birmingham.

Tan bank mosque, the first mosque in Telford, had over the years become too small for our growing congregation and offered no scope for expansion or additional space for ladies. For a number of years we have been working very hard to convert a large complex of buildings at King Street, Wellington into a state-of-the-art Mosque. Our vision will see over 900 Muslims men praying in a spacious and comfortable Mosque. The new facilities also include a 250 + area designated for ladies. Both are partially in use, awaiting heating, lighting, dome and ceiling work to be finished off over the next few months.

When phase 1 is finished, there will be prayer space for over 1100 men and ladies, a single site for boys and girls madrassa, social, education, and leisure classes. Phase two will include funeral, sports and events facilities. This is our vision.

We appeal to you for your help. Donate now, and help us build a house of Allah, a noble project, building a future for Muslims and the wider community.
