Golden Lay Farm has tipped Masjid Committees to come up with plans and activities that will help them achieve economic independence other than relying on donations.

The advice has been made by Managing Director of Golden Lay Farm, Hasheem Banda when he graced the Madrassah closing ceremony at Sadzi Madrassah in Zomba.

Banda said, having income generating activities can help Masjid committees to plan and implement development plans in their areas.

“Most Masjids are going through many developmental challenges, which also affect the smooth running of Madrassas hence bringing fears on the future of having learned Muslim youths,” Banda said

He then pledged to provide iron sheets for the house of the sheikh at the Masjid, with an aim of portraying a good example to other Muslim business people.

On his part, one of the trustees at the Masjid Wistone Imran Kapanje thanked Banda for the pledge saying it will take them along way

Kapanje said the house is one of the priorities the committee has set up to enhance the wellbeing of the sheikhs.

He said “there is also a need for more support as they are planning to expand the Masjid in order to accommodate the increasing population of Muslims residing in the area.”

On the day, 6 students received Certificates for completing their six years of primary madrassah
