On-Going Fund Raising
One of the commercial based fund raising initiatives is a collaboration programme with a few selected vendors or suppliers. Their products are displayed or promoted by having a presence at a corner of the mosque or other mediums. In addition, their promotional materials are readily available and distributed at the mosque. In return, a certain agreed percentage of the sales go back to the mosque's fund. Customers to these products please be assured that the prices charged to you are the same if you were to purchase it outside, there are no extra mark ups. The donation amounts are already worked out and agreed by the vendors and us.

Basmati is a variety of long grain rice grown in India and Pakistan. Apart from its unique characteristics of being long grained, slender and aromatic fragrance, the basmati rice is also nutritious and a better choice for the health conscious. Its name means "the fragrant one" in Sanskrit, but it can also mean "the soft rice," and the word coincidently means "my smile" in Arabic. India is the largest cultivator and exporter of this rice, followed by Pakistan; it is primarily grown through paddy field farming in the Punjab region.
Cooked grains of Basmati rice are characteristically free flowing rather than sticky, as with most long-grain rice. It is of course necessary for cooking the popular beryani rice and an excellent alternative for making nasi lemak.
Guard Basmati Story
Rice Bowl located in Punjab, is a gift of nature for the rice-lovers through out the whole world. The North-Eastern Punjab rightly feels the pride for its alluvial soil and Guard Rice, which in a sense is a son of Pak soil as well as a symbol of towering quality for rice eaters. Lush green fields of 'paddy' of North-Eastern Punjab is the land where history of Basmati lies. 'Punjabians' are perhaps the first people to cherish the taste of Basmati on earth. Their mystic legend `Waris Shah’ in his classic poem `Heer’ has mentioned the growing and use of Basmati. `Heer’ was written in 1766 signifying that Basmati rice has almost a five hundred year close relationship with the 'Rice Bowl'. It can be said that the unique taste and exotic aroma of Basmati rice cultivated in the North-Eastern Punjab would have attracted.
'Bas' (fragrance) of Mati (Soil) has crossed boundaries and conquered uncountable hearts. Alluvial soil retains moisture in the root-zone longer than other types of soil. Peculiar weather conditions of foot hills with hot days and cool nights multiply the power of alluvial soil and all strive for the nourishment of basmati rice. Basmati loves to be fostered in the fertile soil of “Rice Bowl” Guard Rice Mills strategically located in the hearth of Punjab have set an envious standard in the production and export of rice since two decades.
