Masjid Projects in Sri Lanka

03 Oct 2016

One major problem in post conflict areas of Sri Lanka is the prevalence of many Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). It is estimated that some 800,000 persons were displaced during the civil-war in Sri Lanka and the Trincomalee district, in east Sri Lanka has not only generated IDPs itself but has also received them from other conflict zones. It is estimated that as much as 50% of the total population of Trincomalee is made up of IDPs. More than 70% of the community in the district live below the poverty line due to unstable income sources mainly derived from seasonal activities such as crop cultivation and fishing. Another major cause of poverty are the frequent disasters such as floods and periods of drought which both plague the region. Changing climatic patterns in Trincomalee have seen such natural calamities increasing in frequency over the last five years and having a major impact on the community’s lives. Given the financial straits of communities, many areas cannot afford to construct their own Masjid facilities or upgrade existing facilities that have become old and dilapidated. The Al-Imdaad Foundation has therefore undertaken with the generous support of donors to establish masjid facilities that will serve the social and spiritual needs of the local community. Thus far two Masjid facilities have been built and are now serving the needs of the community.

Masjid Projects in Indonesia

03 Sep 2015

Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and the most populous Muslim majority country with over 250 million people living across a range of 17 508 islands. Many Indonesians are very poor and can hardly afford the upkeep of their own families. This is especially the case in rural villages where many live below the poverty line. Many of these communities cannot afford the upkeep and establishment of masjids which a play a central role in religious and social life. As a consequence many masjids lie in a state of disrepair and are in desperate need of renovation and rehabilitation. The expanding population also means that more new masjids need to be established in certain areas to meet the needs of growing communities. The Al-Imdaad Foundation has been conducting masjid construction projects in a number of countries all around the world. Each masjid follows local patterns of architecture and is constructed by local artisans so that the community can be comfortable in their prayers and devotions. Many masjids are sponsored by individual donors who contribute the whole sum required for the establishment or rehabilitation of a masjid. In this way some of the poorest communities like those living in remote Indonesian islands have a comfortable environment to serve important social and religious functions.

Masjid Project in Malawi

18 May 2015

For the poor and needy, the opportunity to pray in an environment of comfort and peace is often not available. Many Mosques in poor areas are in dilapidated conditions and due to the poverty of the local community adequate funding cannot be obtained to renovate them. In the Islamic tradition the reward of the person establishing a masjid or contributing to its renovation can be immense. This is because he will be rewarded for every prayer that is subsequently prayed in that Masjid even after he has passed away. The Al-Imdaad Foundation keeping these in mind has always made it a priority to establish Mosques in different areas of the world where conditions of difficulty prevail. Recently we have been involved in the renovation and refurbishment of an existing Masjid in the Mbeju Village in Mangochi in Southern Malawi. This Masjid was constructed from burnt and damaged bricks and mud and no mortar had been used in its construction resulting in a very uncomfortable and unstable construction. The Al-Imdaad Foundation thus committed to renovating the Masjid though our partners on the ground in the country who have had extensive career erecting over 260 Mosques over a period of 40 years.

Masjid projects in Balkan Countries

01 Oct 2014

Through our partners, the Rahma academy the Al-Imdaad Foundation has also been involved in the establishment of Mosque facilities in Balkan countries to help meet the religious and spiritual needs of the community in addition to their educational and material ones. These needs were suppressed for many years under the communist regime and many are now relishing in the opportunity to learn and practice their religion. The Al-Imdaad Foundation, and its volunteer wing, has been actively participating in the funding and opening of these facilities in various villages across the region thus providing a means of solace for those seeking religious and spiritual fulfilment.

Masjid Projects in Somalia

18 May 2014

With all the war and destruction in Somalia, sometimes we forget that the normal everyday activities of life still continue. The trips to the market, the cooking of simple meals, and for the religiously devout Somalis the daily trips to the mosque five times a day all continue. In times of hardship and difficulty it is our connection to the divine that helps us to go on day by day despite the struggles and trials. For this reason it is very important that people in conflict situations have somewhere comfortable and safe to conduct their prayer and devotion. With this in mind the Al-Imdaad Foundation has been conducting masjid construction projects in various countries around the world where difficulty and hardship is the way of life. In Somalia a number of masjids have been put up with funding from Al-Imdaad Foundation donors. The architecture of our masjids is simple yet beautiful and follows the local patterns in each country. In Somalia simple white washed walls with quaint yet elegant minarets characterise the architecture. Local artisans add little touches here and there that give a truly unique feel to each masjid despite the simplicity of its design.
