Light the Lamps of Masjid Al-Aqsa

Muslim Hands

On the 27th of Rajab, The Prophet (saw) was miraculously transported to Jerusalem, from where he ascended into the heavens. Masjid Al-Aqsa, which served as the first qiblah, sits on the site of this miracle, a reminder of The Prophet’s glorious Night Journey and ascension. 

We have an incredible opportunity to undertake lighting renovations to illuminate the outside of the Masjid, behind the Dome of The Rock.


"‘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 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 Mecca and Medina.

Donate a £100 for a share in this incredible work.
