Building Community Mosques

Home / Building Community Mosques

Why Mosques?

At MGR, we know that without personal and spiritual development, there can be no social development. In most of the villages we work, mosques are the places where personal and spiritual development happens. Mosques also double as community centres and places of learning. It’s where people are united in worship, where men and women come to for solace and support, and where children learn to read.

How it Works

When it comes to developing rural villages, building mosques is secondary to the most basic human needs. That’s why we only build mosques in villages where people have (gained) access to a safe water source, sanitation and food security. The mosques we build are usually in response to an appeal from the village community. In some cases we replace an exiting structure, which is insufficient or un-safe for use. In others, the community has no mosque at all.

What We Do

At MGR we build community mosques in remote villages to aid development. Mosques are where people gather to worship. It’s where children learn religious manners and to read the Holy Qur’an. In mosques villagers are united as a community to practice and better understand their faith, which is vital to development. Faith gives people strength, breeds hope, and inspires social justice as well as the perseverance to improve themselves and their lives.

Faith and Development

Research shows that people living in the developing world trust their churches, mosques and temples more than any other institution. For such people, faith is vital to shaping the attitudes, beliefs and practices that lay the foundation for everyday life.

Faith unites people as a community, gives them strength, breeds hope, and inspires social justice as well as the perseverance to improve themselves and their lives. Within the Islamic context where the concept of Zakat obligates the fair distribution of wealth, faith is integral to development.
