Masjid Abuhuraira Expansion Project
The Expansion of our Masjid, Abuhuraira, is underway. Thanks to all the generous donations of our Muslim community in Rochester, MN, and around the world.
Giving charity, sadaqah, is very important in Islam, Allah SWT said: “By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you give freely of that which you love, and whatever you give, Allah knows it well.” [Qur’an 3:92].
لَن تَنَالُواْ ٱلۡبِرَّ حَتَّىٰ تُنفِقُواْ مِمَّا تُحِبُّونَۚ وَمَا تُنفِقُواْ مِن شَىۡءٍ۬ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ بِهِۦ عَلِيمٌ۬ (92 Al-Imran)
Allah also said: “O believers give of what We have provided for you” (Qur’an 2:254).
يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓاْ أَنفِقُواْ مِمَّا رَزَقۡنَـٰكُم... (Al-Baqara254)
Our beloved prophet PBUH said: "Whoever builds a mosque for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow's nest for Allah or even smaller, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise.
مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدًا لِلَّهِ كَمَفْحَصِ قَطَاةٍ ، أوْ أَصْغَرَ ، بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ. صححه الألباني.
Doing good should never be delayed as life could be shorter than we think.
