$50,000 Appeal Fund for Muslim Cemetery in Adigbe-Abeokuta
Organized by: Idris Ayodeji Bello
On behalf of the Adigbe Muslim Unity Forum, which represents the entire Muslim population of Adigbe, a fast-growing suburb of Abeokuta, Ogun State, and its twelve masjids (mosques), we seek your indulgence to contribute to the ongoing appeal fund for the first Muslim cemetery in the town.
Allah reminds us all in Surah Imran Verse 185 (3:185) that “Every soul will taste death, and you will only be given your [full] compensation on the Day of Resurrection”.
One of the most pressing needs for our Muslim community is a place to bury our dead in accordance with the Sunnah. Unfortunately, too many Muslims face the prospect of burying their loved ones in their homes, despite the Prophetic injunction not to “turn our houses into graves”
Allah has blessed our community with individuals whoembarked on a search over the past two years for a suitable land to serve as the final resting home for Muslims in Adigbe and nearby areas of Abeokuta, Ogun State. Alhamdulillah, we have now successfully secured 4.5 acres of land for this purpose along the main Adigbe Opako-Obada road.
Our Vision is to provide an exclusive burial place for the Muslim community in accordance with Quran and Sunnah by ensuring a full service cemetery facilitating full burial rites, and by protecting, maintaining, preserving & sustaining the cemetery.
Towards this end, we are raising the sum of Ten Million Naira ($50,000) which will allow us to execute the first phase of the cemetery (with burial space for over 500 corpses) including complete fencing of the land, proper layout of the site with shade trees, construction of borehole and water facilities, funeral home &corpse; washing facilities, and provision of 24-hour security protection. We need your help to actualize this dream.
It is our sincere hope that you will join us in this unique opportunity to contribute to this project whose benefit and rewards will outlive us all, and we assure you all funds received will be properly accounted for and judiciously used.
Payments can be made online here or directly to the account below;

May Allah reward you abundantly, and provide you with a resting place of peace and bliss whenever the end comes. Amin
Sincerely, your brother in Islam,
