“Whoever builds a Mosque, desiring thereby Allāh’s (Most High) pleasure, Allāh builds for him the like of it in paradise.” (Sahih Bukhari)
As a policy Muslim Charity believes that the Mosque plays an active and dynamic role in the life of the nation as was the case in the period of our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and rightly guided caliphs. Religion is an integral part of daily lives for many of Muslim Charity’s beneficiaries and a holistic approach to development demands that religious and spiritual needs are also provided for along with physical ones. The role of the Mosque has always been instrumental in the social, moral and educational uplift of the Muslim community.
The objectives of Muslim Charity’s Mosque Programme are as follows:
- For Muslim Charity the Mosque is primarily, a place for prayer, to encourage the practice of the Islamic faith in the communities, and a centre of community life;
- Islam preaches unity of the spiritual and the worldly aspects of life therefore community gatherings in Mosques include both spiritual and social elements;
- Islam emphasises the importance of education and so teaching and learning are the fundamentals of our Mosque Programme.
Abdul Rahim, a resident of a destroyed village in Muzaffargarh, who lost all his possessions and lived in a makeshift tent expressed “Please re-build the Mosque for our community and we will build our houses ourselves” all those around in the community expressed the same will. It is in response to such demands of the community members that Muslim Charity continues to expand its Mosque Programme.
