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 is 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.

Goat's milk is said to be as close to a perfect food as possible in nature. It is interesting to know that goat's milk is more like human mother's milk and so is far easier for people to digest in addition to being less fatty. Goat's milk is also a superior source of the vitally important nutrient potassium. This extensive amount of potassium causes goat's milk to react in an alkaline way within the body whereas cow's milk is lacking in potassium and ends up reacting in an acidic way.
Here are 5 reasons why goat milk is better than cow milk.
1. Goat milk is less allergenic
Alpha S1 Casein, a type of protein, is one of the major allergen found in cow milk. When the human body immune system identified this protein to be harmful it would release the antibodies (histamine) to defend against this protein. Thus this causes symptoms such as swelling over the facial, skin rash, runny nose, nasal congestion and etc. The level of Casein found in goat milk are 89% lesser than cow milk, therefore it is unlikely to cause any allergy reaction. Furthermore goat milk is mostly recommended to patient suffering from cow milk allergy.
2. Goat's milk is naturally homogenized
Goat milk is naturally homogenized. As for cow milk, there is a natural separation compound called agglutinin- cream on the top and skim milk on the bottom. The homogenization works by forcing the milk through tiny hole which cause the fat globule cell wall to broken and it releases free radicals. Free radicals will attack the molecule and steal its electron causing disruption to the living cells which often lead to DNA mutations and cause cancer.
3. Goat's milk is easier to digest
Goat milk form softer curd than cow milk, which allows easier digestion
4. Goat's milk rarely causes lactose intolerance
Goat's milk contains less lactose than cow's milk and therefore is easier to digest for those suffering from lactose intolerance. Goat milk can be easily absorbed, as no leftover lactose that remains undigested which causes the painful and uncomfortable effects of lactose intolerance.
5. Goat's milk matches up to the human body better than cow's milk.
Goat's milk has a greater amount of essential fatty acids such as linoleic and arachidonic acid than cow's milk and significantly greater amounts of vitamin B-6, vitamin A, and niacin.
