Illuminate the Dome of the Rock Masjid!

The Prophet (saw) was asked, '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 [worth 1,000 prayers]'. [Ahmad]

Alhamdulillah, you have been supporting our work at Masjid Al-Aqsa since 2008! You have sponsored olive trees, renovated wudu areas, illuminated various parts of the Masjid and helped us carry out essential maintenance and repair work.

Now, we are honoured to invite you to an incredible opportunity - illuminating the Dome of the Rock Masjid! Located at the centre of the Blessed Masjid Al-Aqsa complex, it is believed to be the exact place where the Prophet (saw) was ascended into the heavens on Al-Isra wal-Mi'raj!

You can help us preserve this historic site, by installing a state-of-the-art lighting system in all central areas for decades to come, in sha Allah!

The total cost of installing the lighting system is £2.5 million - and you have already given over £1.1 million! With this Sadaqah, our partners hope to begin Phase 1 soon. This will illuminate the Main Prayer Hall, the ceiling and arcs, the front and the internal corners.

We highly encourage you to give to this blessed lighting project! It is not only an immense Sadaqah Jariyah, it also carries the reward of praying in Masjid Al-Aqsa - worth a thousand prayers!

Don't miss out on these blessings! Give now to illuminate the Dome of the Rock Masjid on behalf of yourself or a loved one.

So far, you have given 2,250 shares to the blessed lighting project. 2,959 shares are still available - don't miss out!

Repairing Masjid Al-Aqsa

We were all shocked to the core by the attacks on the Blessed Masjid Al-Aqsa, our third holiest site, during the last nights of Ramadan 2021.

Not only were worshippers targeted, but the Masjid itself received £300,000 worth of damage. This included the destruction of the speaker system, which our donors funded back in 2008, as well as damage to the Masjid's doors, windows and the 13th century Burhan ad-Din Minbar.

Alhamdulillah, we have been given permission by our partners in Jerusalem to appeal for the repair of the Masjid. So far, our generous donors have raised £225,000, ma sha Allah! Our partner is currently repairing the Qibali Masjid - you can follow us on social media to see photos of this noble work!

You can also continue to give to the Repair Fund and reap the rewards of preserving the Sacred Sanctuary.

Renovating the Bab ar-Rahmah Cemetery

‘And whoever honours the symbols of Allah - indeed, it is from the piety of hearts’. [Quran, 22:32]

Bab ar-Rahmah was established at the time of Umar ibn al-Khattab (ra), and is thus around 1,400 years old!

Covering 11,000 square metres, it includes the graves of Sahabah such as Ubadah ibn Samit (ra), the first Islamic judge of Shaam and al-Quds, among 70 other Companions, leaders, martyrs and scholars.

Martyrs from many armies who defended Jerusalem are also buried here, as well as Turk Muslims who lived and died in Ottoman times.

Join us in preserving this significant Islamic landmark! Here's what your Sadaqah Jariyah can do:

  • £100 renovates 5 square metres
  • £200 renovates 10 square metres
  • £500 renovates 25 square metres
