1. Asking donation for the purchase a piece of land for wakaf for the establishment of an Islamic university in science and technology in Yala, Thailand
2. Asking donation for the construction of an Islamic university in science and technology in Yala, Thailand
I am glad to inform you that we have recently formed and registered a foundation, called the Islamic Foundation of Science and Technology (“Foundation“) for the purpose of establishing an Islamic university in science and technology in the district of Yala, Southern Thailand to be tentatively named as Asean Islamic University of Science and Technology (“University“). The Muslim population of Southern Thailand are desperately in need of an Islamic university for their children to pursue higher education after completing their secondary religious schools.
Currently the Foundation is seeking donations from the public to finance the purchase of a piece of land which is located adjacent to the existing religious primary and secondary schools in Yala, Thailand. These schools are collectively known as Sekolah Haji Haron (translated as Haji Haron School), named after the founder of these religious schools. The University is proposed to be built on this land and the students of the existing religious schools could be the important feeder schools to the University.
On behalf of the Foundation, I would like to ask for your generosity to donate funds for this educational project for the betterment of tertiary Islamic education opportunities in Southern Thailand. Your donations could be either for the purchase of the land for wakaf or for the construction of the University or for both. For the purchase of the land for wakaf, we have conveniently divided the land into units of one-meter squared lots to enable donors to purchase the lots of land for wakaf. The price of the land is set at RM200 or SAR250 per meter squared lot.
Donations may be made in the form of cash, cheque or bank transfer. The cheque shall be made payable to the Islamic Foundation of Science and Technology. The bank transfer may be made to the following account:
Name of Bank and Branch: Bangkok Bank, Yala Branch
Account Name: Islamic Foundation of Science and Technology
Account Number: 266-4-29715-3; Swift Code: BKKBTHBK
Attached below is a brief overview of the Foundation and the University and the donation form. May Allah SWT provide you with great rewards for your generous donations.
