January 2017

Masjid & Madrasah al-Tawhid Trust has completed the appointment of the following persons as Interim Trustees, until the Charity Commission completes the process of the formal appointment of Trustees :

Mr Sheraz Ahmed (Chairperson)
Mr Yusuf Patel (Treasurer)
Mrs Sadiya Shaikh (Secretary)

Mr Mohammed Idrees Sethi
Dr Suhaib Hasan
Mr Mehmud Patel
Mr Mohamed Patel
Mr Muhammad Tahir
Mr Rafiuddin Syed

 

Following the investigation into the administration of the Trust, the Charity Commission has concluded that due to some irregularities in the appointment of Trustees in 2003, there have been no valid Trustees of the Masjid since 2006.

The investigator from the Charity Commission, Mr Iain Hewitt, has sent the following plan to the Trustees in order to lay down a framework for a way forward. The Commission has been clear that in the interim period, until the plan is put into place after Ramadan, the current Trustees will remain in authority as a caretaker Trust.

Alhamdulillaah, the Charity Commission has now completed its investigation and will shortly issue a report on its findings.
As a result of this, the Commission has also appointed the following six persons as Interim Trustees of the Charity for a period of 12 months :

- Mr Mehmud Patel
- Dr Suhaib Hasan
- Dr Liaquat Ali (now resigned)
- Mr Mohamed Patel
- Mr Muhammad Idrees Sethi
- Mr Muhammad Tahir

The trustees must now appoint four new Trustees who will be the Office Bearers of the Charity - namely Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.

assalamu alaikum Shaikh Suhaib Hasan and Mr. Mehmud Patel

I refer to my email of 8 June to both of you advising that the Arbitration process will not be proceeding further in the light of the Charity Commission's statutory inquiry relating to the mosque and that they should be allowed to complete their work first. In the light of developing situation in the mosque and the fact that the Arbitration effort seem to have been undermined from the very day I came to know about the complaint to the Charity Commission both my facilitators, Nugal Durani and Zaffar Iqbal and I have decided that  our involvement will now no longer serve much purpose. The Arbitration is therefore formally discontinued and I have advised the Charity Commission accordingly. This leaves me to thank you both for inviting us and we pray that the parties will be able to sort their outstanding dispute themselves. 

Salam
