Alhamdulillah we are complete with the masjid makeover. We only require equipment to start a cooking class at the centre.
Prophet(SAW) said: “Whosoever shares in building a masjid for Allah, even if it is as small as a bird’s nest, Allah (S.W.T.) will build for him a house in Paradise.” (Ahmad)

Task 1 -- Get buy in and support from project owners
1000 Good deeds approached Al Tawheed centre in February 2010 to find out if there were any masjids in the underprivileged areas that required a masjid makeover.
At the end of September 2010, Sheikh Sultan contacted 1000 good deeds and said:
“What arise in my mind that there is a need to a renovation to one of the Masjid in Grasmere so I started to think of you. So if you could arrange a meeting with your husband I appricate it”
Task 2 -- Arrange a meeting with project owners
