Hadeeqatul Mahdi Car Park address: Country Market Malthouse and Osborne Farms, Kingsley, Borden, Hampshire, GU35 0QP.
The Administration of Jalsa Salana UK 2017 are pleased to set out the arrangements for applying for car passes to attend Jalsa Salana UK.
The Main Car Park is at the Country Market with regular shuttle services from this car park to Jalsa Gah at Hadeeqatul Mahdi. This year we have a very efficient and regular shuttle service which has fast track priority access to Jalsa Gah. Over the last few years, cars that were parked in Hadeeqatul Mahdi took on average ONE HOUR longer to leave than members who were parked at the Country Market.
Please kindly also note:
- ROAD SIGNS – During Jalsa days as you drive towards Alton and the A31 past Farnham, there are special road signs indicating where you should go. Please follow the signs for the colour of your pass.
- DISPLAY YOUR CAR PASS – Please display your pass clearly in your front windscreen on the drivers’ side as you approach the car parks.
- DISABLED MEMBERS – Any pass issued for disabled members MUST BE ISSUED in the name of the disabled member AND they must be present in the vehicle when they attend Jalsa.
- SPEED RESTRICTIONS – For health and safety reasons, there is a 5 mph speed limit in ALL AREAS in our car parks and within Hadeeqatul Mahdi.
Please kindly co-operate with the Car Passes Department and with all volunteers and organisers of this Jalsa Salana. Please remember that this is a peaceful, tranquil and spiritual religious event and our conduct throughout should reflect these important shared values.
We wish you all a pleasant, spiritually uplifting and safe Jalsa, both during the event and during your journey to and from Jalsa.
Please see below for specific types of passes.
UK Jama’at Members
All general car-parking passes are issued directly by your local President. Therefore, all members must contact their President and apply for a car-parking pass.
For all pass applications, please ensure that you provide the following information to your local President:
- Full Name (as shown on your AIMS card)
- AIMS number
- Car Registration Number
- Mobile Telephone Number of the driver of the vehicle
If you are a disabled member who will attend Jalsa, you can apply for a disability pass through your president urgently. The deadline to apply for any disability car passes is Friday 25th June 2017.
Your President will apply to our Nizamat for a pass and the passes will be sent to your President before Jalsa for you to collect from them.
There is Disabled Car Park in both Country Market and Hadeeqatul Mahdi and the Nizamat will determine which car park you will be allocated.
When applying for your pass, it is essential that:
- PROOF OF DISABILITY – You give proof of disability to your President, which will usually be your disability badge issued by your Local Authority.
- APPLICATION IN NAME OF DISABLED PERSON – The pass must be applied for in the name of the Disabled person and NOT the driver or owner of the vehicle.
- DISABLED PERSON IN VEHICLE – The Disabled person MUST be in the vehicle when you come to Jalsa. This will be checked when you arrive.
If you do not contact your local President by this date, you may not receive your pass in time for Jalsa. You may then have to attend our offices when it opens to the public from 14th July until 27th July midday at Baitul Futuh and there is no certainty your application will be successful.
