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.
Mosques serve an important function in the Muslim community, but sadly, many Muslims simply do not have access to a local mosque. Some communities have lost their mosques due to conflict or a natural disaster, while many rural areas never had a mosque. The long journey to the nearest mosque is difficult or impossible for many of those in the greatest need – particularly the sick and elderly.
This is why, at UK Islamic Mission, we put great importance on the need to build a masjid so as all our Muslim brothers and sisters have a safe place to come together.
