Fund raising for North Finchley Mosque


LONDON: 25 Muslim brothers and sisters took part in a Fund Raising event for the North Finchley Mosque redevelopment which aims to extend the existing mosque to create a beautiful, functional space for the growing Muslim Community in Finchley and surround areas.
Mr Athar Hussain with the help of Nurul Alam, Sohail Mansaf and Imam Hamid Qureshi organised the event. Most of the group took a minibus to Wales on Friday 20th September and stayed overnight in a hotel in the area. The next day they met the rest of the group and set off to climb Mount Snowdon (1,085m/3,560 ft high). The whole party successfully climbed to the top and returned safely.

So far they have raised over £11,000 through sponsorship. The youngest to climb was Ayaan Hussain (aged 11) son of Athar Hussain. He alone has raised over £2,000. Donations can be made at:
Athar Hussain is son of prominent Pakistani business personality Mr. AKhtar Hussain who himself has rendered services for a number of charities and needy humanity. Undoubtedly, this is a noble cause and may Allah bless them with good health and success on other ventures in the future. Ameen.

It is pertinent to mention here that Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa in Welsh) is the highest mountain in Wales and England. It’s one of our most famous and regonizable landmarks and is well worth a visit. Standing tall over the village of Llanberis, Snowdon is a part of a close-knit family of jagged peaks and can offer views of Snowdonia, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire and Ireland.

Choose from six different paths to conquer this 1,085 metre giant which is the Llanberis path, Pyg Track, Miners’ Track, Watkin Path, Rhyd-Ddu Path or the Snowdon Ranger Path.

The English name “Snowdon” comes from the Old English snaw dun, meaning “snow hill”, as Snowdon often has a covering of snow Although the amount of snow on Snowdon in winter varies significantly, 55% less snow fell in 2004 than in 1994. The slopes of Snowdon have one of the wettest climates in Great Britain, receiving an annual average of more than 200 inches (5,100 mm) of precipitation.
