Establishing of Masajid
It is our aim and intention to construct and establish a Masjid in every community which will serve as a centre for providing community strength and unity, propagating Islamic education and creating a bond of brotherhood and sisterhood amongst the members of that community.
The building of a masjid was the starting point to the expansion of Islam and the Islamic conquests, which engulfed most of the world. The Masjid plays a vital part in the life of the Muslim Ummah. This can be seen in the example of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings upon him) who began to build a Masjid as soon as he (peace and blessings upon him) established the first Islamic state in Madinah. To emphasize the great importance of the Masjid in the shaping of the Islamic society, he (peace and blessings upon him) took part in the actual building himself.
Masjidi Hazrat Mufti Shabil (A.R) at Madras Road, St. Helena Village.
This community has a mere fraction of muslims, approximately thirty in total and in some cases, just one muslim in an entire home.
It is our hope that the establishing of a Masjid in this community where Islam is dormant will be a means of Dawah and propagation of Islamic teachings, morals and conduct to all residing in this village.
The land for this masjid has already been acquired and work has begun.
Masjidi Hazrat Maulana Afzal Ali at Sangre Chiquito, Sangre Grande.
The land for this Masjid has been sourced and is presently in the process of being purchased.
Please donate to these most noble projects of building Masajid
All praise is for Allah. We praise Him and seek His help and His forgiveness and we believe in Him and rely on Him. We seek refuge with Allah from the evils of ourselves and the vices of our deeds. There is no one to misguide whom Allah guides and there is no one to guide whom Allah lets go astray.
In a tradition mentioned by Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim, the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم ) is reported to have said, “Whosoever builds a Masjid for Allah, then Allah will build a house for him in Jannah (Paradise)”.
We ask you, to help us in building our mosque which will:
- Be a symbol of the Islamic faith.
- Act as a religious centre, providing an environment for spiritual purification and inner strength.
- Serves as a centre for Islamic educational activities.
- Play a central role in the cultural and social lives of the Muslims. It is truly amazing how little it can collectively cost to provide a community with a much needed place of worship. Let us seize this opportunity to bring Dawah to these communities. Help us establish an Islamic educational centre for ourselves, our children and future Muslims. Help us bring Islam into this community which lacks it and raise an awareness of our beautiful religion. This is indeed a blessing from Allah Ta’ala. Don’t let it pass us by!
PLEASE DONATE GENEROUSLY TOWARDS THE HOUSE OF ALLAH.
