The Dar-es-salaam Jamaat embarked upon an ambitious project of rehabilitating the kabrastaan which is in existence for over 100 years. The project envisions standardized mold for all graves and grave plaques. This will create a lot of space and organization to the graveyard which today has an unkempt appearance.
At the completion of the project, we should be able to have pathways to a lot of deep corners of the grave yard that will ease members’ visitation to these graves. Besides the ease, access for members with wheel chairs will be facilitated to a large portion of the kabrastaan. And of course, the overall appearance of this center will be greatly improved.
As Muslims, our graveyards are frequently visited with a lot of majlis arranged on a regular basis. We are blessed to have this facility in the City Centre and our phenomenal attendance is an encouraging sign to make this facility as accessible and convenient as possible. This kabrastaan was donated to the community by the Abdulrasul Satchoo Peera family in 1907.
However, every improvement has a cost attached to it. Each grave costs 55,000/- to be rehabilitated plus an additional 25,000/- for the standardized grave plaque. This is an excellent opportunity to earn sawab-e-jaariyah for your marhumins. Jamaat is appealing to every member to at least donate for their marhumins cost of rehabilitating these graves. We have had generous donors who have donated substantial amounts. The total collected so far is 36M Tshs. and approximately 900 graves have been rehabilitated. We still have 1600 graves to rehabilitate. Needless to remind, it is a duty of every member to participate in this funding
Strategic pay points will be available in the Masjid and Mehfils during the upcoming auspicious nights and into Muharam to facilitate your generous donations. Jamaat office is always available to accept funds also. Please do the needful and a request for sure fateha for all marhumins.
