Masjid Al-Aqsa - Serving the Sacred Sanctuary Pt II

Muslim Hands

'Glory be to the One who took His servant (the Prophet (saw)) by night from Masjid al-Haram (in Makkah) to Masjid Al-Aqsa (in al-Quds), whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him some of Our signs. Indeed, He is the All-Hearing, the All-Seeing'. [The Noble Qur'an, 17:1]

Your support has been helping us preserve this historic masjid for over a decade, and we would like to thank you for being part of this extraordinary journey. 

Jazakumu-Allahu khairan for allowing us to honour and serve the Sacred Sanctuary. 


We now have an incredible opportunity to undertake lighting renovations to illuminate the Qibali Masjid Grand Prayer Hall at Al-Aqsa. 

"‘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 1,000 times greater than praying elsewhere, after the holy sites of Mecca and Medina.

Donate  £250 for a share in this incredible work.
