Asalamu alaikum Warahmatullah
About 1 month ago, our family lost our dear Brother (Shiekh Azam Riaz) and our beloved Father (Dr. Mohammad Riaz) to Covid- both passing away only days apart.
They both were beautiful souls who lived thier lives in the service of thier families and communities.
To continue their legacy of benefitting others while they were alive, we're building 1 masjid ($9.5k) and 1 water well ($1.5k) water well as a sadaqah jaariyah (continuous rewards and charity) in Pakistan for Shiekh Azam (rahimahullah) and Dr. Mohammad (rahimahullah) inshaAllah.
The masjid will have a 200 person capacity, a $100 donation is enough to construct 2 prayer spots or give water to 13 people everyday.
Shiekh Yasir Qadhi has worked with and endorses Baitulmaal Organization USA, and proceeds will go directly to them to build the masjid and well. (Find out more about Baitulmaal at https://baitulmaal.org)
The Kabah might be closed off, the masajid might not let you in, but you can build your own house in jannah in this unique time.
Recieving good deeds and reward everytime inshaAllah
· Someone prays in the masjid
· Or does wudu from the well
· Stands for qiyam on laylatul qadr, or jummah,
· Any beneficial khutbah, halaqah, or class,
· For every step saved from walking to get water far away, you get a piece of that reward
· Breaks their fast with the water you gave
Please consider intending your reward for my brother and father in law also.
If we reach our goal, inshaAllah we'll be able to build 2 water wells, and 2 masajid - one for Azam Riaz (rahimahullah) and the other for Mohammad Riaz (rahimahullah)
Once money is raised, the masjid and well will be built in the next 3-6 months. InshAllah we look forward to sharing pictures once it opens.
Jazakallahu khayr for donating.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) elaborated the merits of building the Masajid, saying, “Whoever builds a mosque with the intention of seeking Allah’s pleasure, Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise.” Source: Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 439, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 533
