Madina Centre Complex is a unique Islamic activity that was started by a small group of committed Muslims in 1993 led by Brother Murad E Murad, to mainly serve the Muslim community of the Golf course area in the Kibera District, of Nairobi, which has a population of 200,000 of whom 50,000 are Muslims.
Starting with the building of the main Mosque, the management committee realized that other critical amenities were needed: a Madrassa was started and today over 120 children use the facilities and instructions of the Madrassa. Then it was decided to drill a fresh water borehole, given the frequent water shortages in Nairobi. The 300 meter deep Madina Borehole water is freely supplied to the surrounding community, and this has enhanced the goodwill among Muslims and non-Muslims.
When completed, the Madina Medical Plaza will add much value and excellence to the already popular and well utilized Mosque, Madrassa and free Water services. It is important to note that the Madina Medical Plaza project will deliver badly needed subsidized medical services and facilities.
The Madina Centre Mosque is managed by a sub-committee of seven. The committee’s main function is to serve as an advisory board and to assist the chairman in the day to day management of the Mosque.
Madina Centre Plaza has now taken form and shape. The project has assumed a life of its own and nothing can stop its eventual completion, for the glory of Allah and the service of man. We humbly appeal for your support.
