My cousin’s wife has taken an initiative called “Mission Masjid”, where they are working on multiple projects related to Masajid in Thailand. She has been settled in Thailand for the last 19+ years and currently an online student of Tahfeedul
Her Message is as follows:
The story behind the initiative
It started when we were on the way to the South of Thailand and we had to stop at various different mosques in order to offer our prayers. While we did find mosques to pray at, we realized that the mosques were scarce and not in the ideal condition and could use funding for renovation.
When we started doing our research, we realized that although there are places with Muslim communities and Muslim tourism, there were not enough mosques. A good example is the Koh Chang Island which is the third largest island of Thailand. It’s a beautiful island situated in the South of Thailand with churches and temples and a Muslim community, but there is no mosque on the whole island.
So we believe Koh Chang is the place to start this initiative by building a mosque there and helping the Muslim community to offer their prayers in the Masjid.
“So hasten towards all that is good”
(سورة البقرة :148)
Building and furnishing mosques for people to worship in is a good and righteous deed for which the Lawgiver grants a great reward. It is a kind of sadaqah jaariyah which continues to bring reward after one dies.
Allaah سبحانه و تعالى says (interpretation of the meaning):
“The mosques of Allaah shall be maintained only by those who believe in Allaah and the Last Day; perform As-Salaah (Iqaamat-as-Salaah), and give Zakaah and fear none but Allaah. It is they who are on true guidance”
(سورة التوبة :18)
And the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“Whoever builds a mosque, Allaah will build for him something like it in Paradise.”
Narrated by al-Bukhaari (450) and Muslim (533) from the hadeeth of ‘Uthmaan (رضي الله عنه).
With the Taufeeq of Allaah عزوجل ، we have started a mission to build mosques in those remote areas where even though there is a Muslim community yet no Masjid due to multiple reasons.
So here I invite you all to donate generously in this noble cause and be among those who will be the first to inherit Jannah because they rushed to do good in this dunya with the intention of seeking the pleasure and acceptance of Allaah سبحانه و تعالى .
وَٱلسَّٰبِقُونَ ٱلسَّٰبِقُونَ ﴿١٠﴾ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ ٱلْمُقَرَّبُونَ ﴿١١﴾ فِى جَنَّٰتِ ٱلنَّعِيمِ ﴿١٢﴾
(سورة الواقعة :10-12)
“And those foremost [in performing righteous deeds in the life of this world on the very first call ] will be foremost (in Paradise). These will be those nearest to Allah in the Gardens of delight (Paradise).”
And Indeed ;
لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله العلي العظيم
May Allaah عزوجل accept this deed from me and from all of you and put in on the scale of our good deeds on the day of judgment when no wealth, family or friends will benefit us.
آمين يا رب العالمين
