Gain the reward of praying in Masjid Al-Aqsa

Donate a £100 share and be a part of history

'If one of us cannot visit it [Al-Aqsa], what should we do?' He, (saw) said, 'Then he should make a gift of some oil to be lit therein [in its lamps]. For indeed the one who gifts this to it, will be like the one who has prayed therein.'' (Ahmad)

Masjid Al-Aqsa, which served as the first qiblah, sits on the site of The Prophet’s glorious Night Journey and ascension, when he was miraculously transported to Jerusalem, from where he ascended into the heavens.

The Prophet (saw) promised that lighting the lamps of Al-Aqsa carried the same reward as praying in this holy place, which is 500 times greater than praying elsewhere, after the holy sites of Makkah and Medina.

Since 2008 Muslim Hands has been honoured to play its part in the restoration of Masjid Al-Aqsa, the third most holy site in Islam. The generosity of our donors has helped us to carry out major regeneration works such as renovating wudhu areas and complete a lighting project in the Masjid Al-Qibli section of the site, the external boundary wall and internal dome of the Dome of the Rock.

Now we have an incredible opportunity to undertake a lighting project to illuminate the rear of the mosque on the south side, behind the Dome of The Rock. Donate a £100 share on this special night of Al'Isra, wal'Miraaj.

The renovation work will begin on 20th April 2018. Don't miss the chance to share the reward and donate now.
