A MOSQUE IS A PLACE OF REFUGE FOR MUSLIMS, FILLED WITH PEACE, CARE, AND COMMUNITY.
Mosques are at the heart of every Muslim community around the world and they play a pivotal role in education, daily worship and special occasions. Indeed, the first act of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) upon his arrival in Medina was to build a mosque.
Whoever builds a Mosque for the sake of Allah (SWT), Allah (SWT) will build for him likewise in Paradise.
It is clear that mosques play an important role in the Muslim community, but sadly, many Muslims simply do not have access to a local mosque. Some communities lost their mosques as casualties of conflict or natural disaster, while many rural areas have never had a mosque at all.
As a result, the long journey to the nearest mosque is difficult or even impossible for many of those in the greatest need – particularly the sick and elderly.
