Build a Masjid – Set up a Sadaqah Jariyah

The good deeds that will reach a believer after his death are:

  • The knowledge that he learned and then spread
  • Righteous son whom he leaves behind
  • Copy of the Qur’an that he leaves as a legacy
  • The mosque that he built
  • House that he built for wayfarers
  • A canal that he dug
  • or charity that he gave during his lifetime when he was in good health

These deeds will reach him after his death.”

Saheeh Ibn Maajah

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said,

“Whoever builds a masjid for the sake of Allah, Allah will build a house for him in Jannah.”

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Islamic Welfare Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Islamic Welfare Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Islamic Welfare Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Islamic Welfare Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Islamic Welfare Trust receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Importance of Masjid in Islam

Mosques are the heart of Muslim life. They serve for 5 daily prayers, for events during the blessed month of Ramadan. Mosques are centres for education, information sharing, places for social welfare, and also for dispute settlement.

Imagine a Muslim community without a Masjid. Muslims in the areas wouldn’t have any place to worship. They wouldn’t be able to establish five daily prayers and the Jummah salah. This is why the Masjid is the most important place in any Muslim community.

Islamic Welfare Trust is present on the ground in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Africa. With your support, we have built numerous mosques in some of the world’s poorest communities. Remember, these communities often have to travel far to pray in a mosque or their local mosque is made from materials such as mud, tree branches, or just bricks put together. By providing a clean and safe place of worship, you will not only spread smiles but also please your Lord.

Support Islamic Welfare Trust to Build Mosques in Poorer Communities

It is an obligation of every Muslim to pray five times a day. Abandonment of prayer takes one out of Islam. Prayer (Salah) is the greatest obligation after Tawheed (the affirmation of the worship of Allāh alone). Here at Islamic Welfare Trust, we understand the importance of Masjid for a Muslim community. This is why we only build a masjid in the areas where we have a few dedicated people who are willing to give their energy to make this project successful after its completion. Alhamdulillah, we try to give control of our mosques to people who follow the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah.

Build a Masjid in Pakistan

Many parts of Pakistan are either without a mosque, or the mosque is in very poor condition. Islamic Welfare Trust supports these communities by building new mosques for them, so they have a safe and clean place to worship Allah. Build a mosque in Pakistan as a Sadaqah Jariyah for your loved ones.

Build a Masjid in Africa

In many African communities, poverty and lack of education prevail, with few having access to a proper mosque. Islamic Welfare Trust is building mosques in many of these areas, offering a safe and clean place for worship and learning. These mosques will become community hubs, spreading the teachings of Islam and fostering growth. Build a Masjid in Africa as a Sadaqah Jariyah for your loved ones.

Build a Masjid in Bangladesh

The majority of Rohingya Muslims pray in mosques built with bamboo and tree branches with tin roofs. We are supporting Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh by providing them with a clean and safe place of worship. Help build a Masjid in Bangladesh and provide your fellow brothers and sisters a place of worship and community.

Build a Masjid and Make it a Sadaqah Jariyah for Your Loved Ones

Masjid is the greatest Sadaqah Jariyah you can set up for yourself and your loved ones. You and your loved ones will continue receiving rewards for building a masjid long after you’ve left this temporary world. Get in touch with our team who will explain the whole process from start to finish as to how you can build a Masjid and if you’re interested you can continue supporting the Masjid in its running and maintenance.

Virtues of Building a Masjid

So you’ve decided that you want to build a Masjid. Remember, your efforts to build a mosque come under the heading of righteous deeds. Allah, may He be exalted, says:

“The Mosques of Allah shall be maintained only by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day; perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat), and give Zakat and fear none but Allah. It is they who are expected to be on true guidance”

[at-Tawbah 9:18]

Ibn Maajah (738) narrated from Jaabir ibn ‘Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

“Whoever builds a mosque for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow’s nest or even smaller, Allaah will build for him a house in Paradise.”

Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani 

This ayah and hadith clearly show that building mosques is a trait of Prophets, Messengers and the people of Imaan. Build a Masjid with Islamic Welfare Trust and help spread the message of Islam.

Building Mosques and Helping the Ones in Need

We build mosques in some of the world’s poorest Muslim communities. These communities often struggle to have even two meals a day, and building schools and mosques is beyond their reach.

A Reminder…

Recent human history has shown how lives can change in a moment. Since the turn of the century, we have seen disaster after disaster unfold, some natural but predominantly manmade. As a Muslim Charity, we must have emergency funds readily available to respond swiftly to these disasters.

Whether it’s the Gaza Emergency Appeal, Yemen Emergency Appeal, Syrian Refugee Crisis, Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal, Pakistan Floods Appeal, Bangladesh Floods Appeal, Rohingya Crisis Appeal, or Africa Drought Appeal, our ability to continue helping those affected by these conflicts, wars, and crises relies on your ongoing support. We urge you to donate your Sadaqah and Zakat to these appeals, aiding in the protection of lives throughout the year and in times of crisis.

However, if you are looking to build a Masjid as Sadaqah Jariyah for your loved ones, or if you wish to build a water pump, donate a food pack, sponsor a sewing machine, or need to give Kaffarah for Breaking an Oath, consider our appeals. Donate to the Ramadan Food Appeal, the Ramadan Zakat Appeal, Donate your Sadaqah Online, or simply donate Zakat to Muslim Charity to assist the poor and needy around the world. Insha’Allah, donate with confidence for the sake of Allah.
