A Masjid is a key and central point for the propagation and worship of Allah. The key and fundamentals of Deen are imparted from there.

Many Masajid are in poor conditions; some are dilapidated whilst others do not have proper structures and are easily destroyed in bad weather. Our aim is not only to construct Masajid in rural Muslim areas but also to revamp old dilapidated Masajid and revive the Masajid thereafter with 5 daily Salah’s and Maktab and Da’wah programs. Apart from that, we intend to distribute aid packs to the needy Muslims as well.

There is no doubt that the construction of a Masjid will accrue rewards for a person during his lifetime as well as after his death. Construction of a Masjid is a Sadaqa (charity) that has recurring rewards. From the Ahadith, we understand that any Sadaqa that has recurring benefits will accrue rewards during one’s lifetime as well as after death.

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) mentioned:

عن أبى هريرة أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال إذا مات الإنسان انقطع عنه عمله إلا من ثلاثة إلا من صدقة جارية أو علم ينتفع به أو ولد صالح يدعو له

“When man dies, his actions come to an end except three, the rewards of which keep accruing even after his death, (they are) Sadaqa (charity) that have recurring benefits, knowledge from which people continue to benefit, pious children who offer du’a on behalf of their deceased parents” (Sahih Muslim, vol 2, pg 41, Kutub Khana Rasheediyya)

Likewise revamping a Masjid will have similar rewards.


In another Hadith, Rasullah (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) mentions that the construction of a Masjid will accrue reward for a person even after his death.

عن أبي هريرة قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم : إن مما يلحق المؤمن من عمله و حسناته بعد موته علما علمه و نشره أو ولدا صالحا تركه أو مسجدا بناه أو بيتا لابن السبيل بناه أو نهرا كراه أو صدقة أخرجها من ماله في صحته و حياته تلحقه من بعد موته


“The deeds for which a believer continues to receive their rewards even after his death are: Knowledge which he taught and propagated; pious children which he left behind; a Masjid that he constructed; a residence for travellers that he constructed; a canal that he dug; sadaqa (charity) that he gave during his life in good health; all these will assist him after his demise”

(Sahih Ibni Khuzaima, #2490, Al-Maktab al-Islami)

It has been related that the Prophet (Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

وَقَدْ رُوِيَ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنَّهُ قَالَ ‏ “‏ مَنْ بَنَى لِلَّهِ مَسْجِدًا صَغِيرًا كَانَ أَوْ كَبِيرًا بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ حَدَّثَنَا بِذَلِكَ قُتَيْبَةُ حَدَّثَنَا نُوحُ بْنُ قققَيْسٍ عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ مَوْلَى قَيْسٍ عَنْ زِيَادٍ النُّمَيْرِيِّ عَنْ أَنَسٍ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم بِهَذَا ‏.‏

“Whoever builds a Masjid for (the sake of) Allah, be it small or large, then Allah will build a house for him in Paradise.”

[Jami` at-Tirmidhi 319 Book 2, Hadith 171]
