We are collecting money to buy our own carpet washing machine as waqf [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
As some brothers regularly spend to clean the carpet in Central and other masajid before Ramadhan and Eid on regular basis (Costing around £600 for professional cleaning) we thought it would make more sense to buy a commercial machine and use that to clean the houses of Allah.
The total cost including soap is around £1,600. We have collected 25% in the last 2 days with more promised.
Allah SWT has ordered Ibrahim PBUH and Ismael PBUH to purify His house, we are simply following in their footsteps.
إذا ماتَ الإنسانُ انقَطعَ عنه عملُهُ إلَّامنثلاثٍ :صَدقةٌجاريةٌ . وعِلمٌ يُنتَفعُ بِهِ ، وولدٌ صالحٌ يدعو لَهُ
If you want to get involved, you can give whatever you can (I would say as little as £1 but it’s easier to deal with notes so minimum £5 would be ideal). You can also help with the collection.
If you wish to help with the cleaning, please do get in touch indicating you want to be kept up to date with the cleaning schedule.

When do you want this done?
Before 10th of Shaaban / 10th June.
We meed the machine to be onsite within the next 2 weeks to give us 2 weeks to clean all the masajid in Edinburgh before Ramadhan
We are looking to have it stored in Central Mosque but with availability to all masajid in Edinburgh on request, there will also be a written inheritance plan (which masjid will the machine be stored in) if Central Mosque cannot store the machine in the future.
