This is an urgent appeal to the general public of Hong Kong to show our support for the Sheung Shui Masjid (mosque) and Elderly Home project. We request everyone to petition the Chief Executive of Hong Kong Ms. Carrie Lam to use her authority for the benefit of minority communities and return the land to UMAH for continuation of hoarding works and  the construction as its rightful user for social and community purpose. 

**Note: the Petition is a separate and independent action from any other legal relief available to and being pursued by the recipient of the Memorial. IMPORTANT: No donation is required from you for this cause at present. Instead, we request you to please forward this petition to at least 5 of your contacts for their generous support, and continue on to get more on board!

Over the last 2 decades, this project has faced uncountable challenges. Finally, after overcoming many hurdles, as the hoarding works started in August 2020 and the project progressed, the Lands Department re-enterred the land on 1 September and visited the site on 2 September, ordering all construction work to stop immediately. They further announced that the land must be vacated by 17 September.

This is an extremely unfortunate situation and we need everyone's help immediately!

Here's why we need your help.

In 2010-2019 UMAH underwent restructuring which Alhamdulillah was concluded successfully in 2019.  Protests disrupted HK economy in 2019 and in 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic is still hampering all our lives until now. All unusual and uncontrollable events which delayed the project.

On 2 September 2020, the Lands Department of Hong Kong visited the Project site and ordered immediate cessation of hoarding works and workers to leave the site. They concurrently issue a Lands Department memorial re-entry stating that the land private treaty grant is cancelled.

This comes to us all as a shock because just two months ago the Buildings Department approved our application for the commencement of hoarding works, and a contractor has already started working on site.  This would mean losing this land not only for the Masjid but just as equally, a milestone project for an elderly home for Hong Kong residents, within the same compound which is 70% of the total project. 

This risks losing a chance of providing community care for our elderly that are most in need.

Please spread the word, generate awareness about this matter as much as possible and encourage your friends and family to show your support. Let's voice out our concerns peacefully.

Last but not least, it is also important to note that the Sheung Shui Masjid and Elderly Care Home is not exclusive to Muslims, but also for the local Hong Kong community at large. Through this project, as Muslims have been part and parcel of Hong Kong, it would be a symbol of the harmonious relationship that exists between the local Muslims as well as the local Chinese.

Here's an explainer video for those who want to know more about our appeal.

這是香港穆斯林聯會(UMAH)向香港市民發出的緊急呼籲,要求保留原用於興建上水清真寺和安老院的土地退還給恰當的使用者,以用於社會和社區的需要。

**註: 請願有別於其他獨立可行的法定解決方案,若日後主事人獲得任何其他法律的解決方案,是次請願,不應列為「使用其他途徑」。

重要聲明:目前,您 無需 為此捐款。我們懇求您將此請願書轉發給至少5位聯繫人,讓他們鼎力支持,並繼續努力爭取更多機會!

本會獲政府批地後,前後超過二十年,克服了無數的困難和考驗,圍欄工程終於在2020年8月開始施工;建寺計劃剛有進展之際,地政署於9月1日突然收回土地,並於9月2日到工地命令工作人員立即停止施工,並要在9月17日全部撤離。


這是非常不幸的情況,我們需要大家的立即幫助!

這就是我們需要您幫助的原因。

在2010年至2019年,UMAH進行了重組,知感主,於2019年完成。2019年的社會事件,擾亂了香港經濟,而2020年的新冠肺炎疫症大流行至今仍困擾著我們的正常生活。所有各種異常和不可控制的情況,導致項目延期。


2020年9月2日,香港地政總署到該項目的工地,並命令立即停止所有工作和在場工人離開工地。他們同時發布了地政總署的收地文件。

令我們震驚的是,僅僅兩個月前,屋宇署剛批准了我們開始進行圍欄工程的申請,而且承造商已經開始在現場工作。我們不單只失去有關土地,也不僅是失去將建成的清真寺,同樣地,為香港居民建設的一個具有里程碑意義,佔整體樓面七成面積的安老院,也無法落實。

這可能會失去為最需要的老年人提供社區護理的機會。

請宣傳一下,盡可能引起人們的關注,並爭取您的朋友和家人的支持。讓我們和平地表達我們的關切。

最後,希望大家注意,上水清真寺和安老院不僅是穆斯林的夢想,而且也是全港市民的項目。穆斯林已經成為香港人口的重要組成部分,託靠主,這項目日後若能落成,將標誌著本港穆斯林與港人之間的和諧關係。
