ATHURUGIRIYA HOUSING PROJECT
There are around 600 Mumineen houses in Colombo and Suburban areas. However there are a few mumineen who are living in rented houses and desperately wanting to live in houses of their own.
By the Raza and Doa Mubarak of Aqa Moula TUS, a scheme was initiated under the Upliftment Programme by Janab Aamil Saheb Sh Zoeb Bhai Galiyakotwala to construct 4 Houses in Athugiriya area for such mumineen.
This Khidmat was undertaken by 3 Commitees with the sole niyat of obtaining Khushi of Aqa Moulana TUS. They are namely:
1. Hizbe Jamali
2. Kaleemi Khidmat Guzar
3. Ashara Committee
Initially two plots of land were identified in a Housing Colony in Athulgiriya where there were already more than 30 Houses of Mumineen. A plan was drawn to construct 4 houses in these two plots of land which was also presented to Aqa Moula TUS during his recent visit to Colombo for Ashara Mubaraka 1428H.
The project was started with the foundation laying ceremony conducted by Janab Aamil Saheb on 26th October 2006.
On 27th May 2007, all 4 houses were ready for occupation and a grand inauguration ceremony was held for this significant event.
Janab Aamil Saheb handed over three houses to the selected Mumin families and Darees Majlis was held in one of the houses. Later a ceremony was held to appreciate the Donors and Khidmat Guzars who worked tirelessly to make this project a success.
After this all invitees were served with lunch.
We take this opportunity to wish Mubarak to all 3 committees for this project and hope many such projects will continue in the future for the benefit of all Mumineen.
