The Al Hedaya board humbly reminds the community of good news from the prophet (S.A.W.) in a hadith reported by Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim, Whosoever builds for Allah a masjid, Allah will reward him similar to it in paradise. In another narration reported by Imam Ahmad, Whosoever shares in building a masjid for Allah, even if it is as small as a birds nest, Allah (S.W.T) will buildfor him a house in Paradise. This is the greatest news for a winning investment that is guaranteed byAllah (S.W.T).
Donating money to build a masjid for the sake of Allah is a sadaqah jariah (continued charity), meaning the reward will continue to reach the donor even after his death.
