Masjid Al-Aqsa: Light One Musalla (Prayer Space)
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'. (Ahmad)
We are honoured to present you with the historic opportunity to buy a share in the lighting of Masjid Al-Aqsa. Since Al-Aqsa is the third holiest site in Islam, this is an incredible chance to preserve our Islamic history.
The lighting system of the historic Qibali Masjid Grand Prayer Hall was installed in 1986, and the old wiring means there is a risk of fire. We are hugely honoured to be working closely with The Hashemite Fund for the Restoration of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock to install a new, state-of-the-art lighting system in Masjid Al-Aqsa.
A quarter of the Masjid is already illuminated! Our team has rewired the right-hand side of the prayer hall, which includes the women's area. We are now beginning Phase Two, rewiring the centre of the Masjid.
Your donations will ensure tens of thousands of worshippers can pray in safety.
£500 illuminates 1 musalla (prayer space for 1 worshipper) or 10 square feet of this blessed space.
