‘A Blessed Appeal for the Mahdarah (School) of Shaykh Muhammad bin Salik bin Fahfu (may Allah safeguard him)’, was launched with the delivery partner, Muslim Hands, in the presence of al-Habib Kazim as-Saqqaf and Syed Lakhte Hassanain Shah (the Chairman of Muslim Hands) at the Objectives Matter Conference on 26th of Jumada al-Awwal/7th April 2013.
The Mahdarah of Shaykh Muhammad (known to the world as Murabit al-Hajj) is situated in the Tuwamarat Village, which is located in the Tagant Region of Mauritania. This Mahdarah has benefited thousands of students throughout the years and from those known to the Western World are the likes of Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, Ustadh Yahya Rhodus and Ustadh Ibrahim Osi-Efa.
Currently, the Mahdara, which accommodates approximately 250 students of knowledge, is in great need of both immediate and long-term assistance. The Trust, with the help of Muslim Hands, have identified four phases of support and through your generous donations we hope we can fulfil the needs of those at the Mahdarah.
