In the name of Allah – The most Gracious – The most Merciful.
The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed [of grain] which grows seven spikes; in each spike is a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies [His reward] for whom He wills. And Allah is allEncompassing and Knowing. [Al-Quran 2:261]

Assalāmu ‘Alaikum wa Rahmatullāhi wa Barakatuhu.
Hope this letter finds you in the best of your health and spirit. Alhamdulillah, with immense pleasure we would like to share the good news that ‘Islamic Practice and Dawah Circle Inc’ (IPDC) have recently signed a contract to purchase the property of ‘9 Hampden Road, Lakemba’ to build an Islamic centre Insha-Allah. Being the demographic capital of Muslim community, Lakemba is already advantaged with many masjids and prayer facilities – still there is a thriving need for Islamic centres that will work actively to build a generation of Muslims with profound imān, authentic knowledge and practice of Islam (as the only way of life) thereby to serve the responsibility of DAWAH ILALLAH in the society we live in.
The property is located in a strategic high density R4 zone within 350 meters of Lakemba station. According to the council guidelines – the property can be used as a place of worship, community facilities, boarding houses and other activities (STCA) that will easily let us use the facility as a fully operational Islamic centre within the regulatory requirements.
The centre will be used for regular Salāt; Hifdhul Qur’an & Tajweed classes; Islamic education for youth, children & women; regular Tafsirul Qur’an & Darsul Hadith programs; dawah activities; bookstore & library; crisis accommodation; parenting programs and counselling services that are essential to build a strong Muslim community – that can be a source of sadaqa jāria for ourselves and our loved ones.
Alhamdulillah, we have signed the contract of sale and placed 10% deposit of the total A$ 1.13 million on 15 Aug 2015. We must pay the balance before the settlement date on 04-Nov-2015. As on 23 Aug15, we have received donations/commitment about $190,000. Any help towards the project can be deposited directly to the following bank account or a bank cheque can be sent to the IPDC postal address.
Account Name: IPDC Masjid Project, BSB: 083-961, ACC No: 844 393 705.
It is noteworthy that IPDC is one of the most active Islamic organisations serving Australian Muslims since its inception in 1996. IPDC has active presence in most Australian states and territories with regular dawah & tarbiyah programs for men, women and children. Being a not-for-profit charitable entity IPDC also participates in various social activities such as clean-up Australia, blood donation, tree plantation etc.
May we therefore request you to allow us collection of donation in an upcoming jumu’ah of your masjid for this new Islamic centre. May Allah SWT reward you generously for your kind support. We also seek your dua so that Allah SWT accept our efforts for this noble cause.
Your brothers in Islam,
