Masjid Al-Aqsa Lighting Fund
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)
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.
This is our biggest Sadaqah Jariyah project yet! We’re now fundraising for Phase 4 - the final phase - illuminating the central part of the Masjid and installing down lighting throughout the Masjid.
