Condell Park Community Update 16.06.16
In the name of Allah, the all Merciful, the most Compassionate. All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and we send peace and blessings upon all Prophets and upon the Messenger Muhammad sallalahu alayhi wa Salam.
Daar Ibn Abbas would like to provide the community with an update on the Condell Park Masjid project. Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your kind support, without which the project would not have been set into motion let alone reached its current stage.
In an effort to emulate Prophetic excellence and responsible conduct, the team handling the Condell Park Masjid are working tirelessly to enable the successful completion of this building without taking any detrimental shortcuts. Therefore the project will have 2 stages:
The first stage is a temporary Musallah using suitably renovated facilities to cater to the needs of the community and the congregants prior to completion of stage 2. Stage 2 will be the final rendition of the Condell Park Faith and Community Centre, a place which embodies the traditional essence of an Islamic prayer space, as well as serving the multifaceted needs of a diverse modern community.
The team has partnered with 13 different consultants, each professionals with extensive experience in the building industry, to lead the project. With their help and the Will of Allah, the Development Application for stage 2 has been submitted to the council and is undergoing the reviewal process. The DA for stage 1 is also currently underway with the team working hard to bring substance to the purchased Condell Park property.
Meanwhile, the current site for Daar Ibn Abbas in Bankstown has reached the end stages of its lease and we have been given surety to stay at the existing premises until the end of July. After this date we can be asked to leave at any time. Daar Ibn Abbas will attempt to secure a place nearby for prayer until the council approves stage 1 of the above plan. When approval is received, Daar ibn Abbas will relocate to Condell Park. We seek to comply with all rules and regulations and as a result will not use any part of the new property until we have received full approval to do so.
Alhamdulilah the project is in full motion and progressing very well. However, there remain a few outstanding issues requiring resolution so that we can reach full potential. Throughout the past 2 years we have received many pledges of donations and unfortunately a large percentage of the pledges are yet to be paid. What we seek from you, the community, is fulfilment of those pledges as soon as possible, we also seek the continuance of your generous support for the project and to communicate your support for the project to the local council administration. Finally, we ask for your continued Dua for tawfiq and success.
Ramadan Mubarak to you and your loved ones. May Allah ta’ala accept all your worship and effort in this blessed month and may He grant you ease to excel in all your affairs.
