[Such niches are] in mosques which Allah has ordered to be raised and that His name be mentioned therein; exalting Him within them in the morning and the evenings
Al Quran (24:36) .
In 2014, conflict in Gaza destroyed over a hundred of Gaza’s beloved Houses of Allah (SWT). This damaged the communities of Gaza because mosques provide a place for the most important pillar of faith and are the heart of every Muslim community. At times of great difficulty, the Gaza people needed, and continue to need, these places even more to share their pain, to support each other and receive comfort from Allah (SWT).
Alhamdulillah, UK Islamic Mission and our generous supporters have been working constantly to rebuild mosques, homes and lives in Gaza for years. Together we have relieved suffering by providing emergency food, clean water, livelihood support for families, orphan and hafiz Qur’an sponsorships.
Donors have rebuilt six mosques which are now serving thousands of people daily: Al-Noor, Omer Farooq, Bilal bin Raba, Ibrahim, Ahl Al Jannah and the 565-year old Masjid Mahkamah.
Our mission to restore the Gaza’s most sacred places continues with the 43 year old Rebuild Masjid Al Tawfeeq, located in the Al Shijaya area of Gaza. With a capacity for 1,500 worshippers, both male and female, this will be our largest mosque in Gaza so far, Insha Allah. The mosque madrasah will help to build Gaza’s future by encouraging and supporting as many as 250 children at one time to memorize the Holy Qur’an and learn about Islam.
The Prophet (pea4ce be upon him) said:
Whoever builds a Masjid for Allah, Allah will build for him likewise in Paradise.
Al-Bukhari and Muslim
We are asking donors to help complete this House of Allah (SWT) in the blessed land of Palestine. May it provide you and your family with Sadaqah Jariyah and build your house in Jannah, Ameen.
