Over the last few years, UCI's Build a Masjid project has helped over 5000 people, giving them the chance to adopt religious duties in the cohesive and social environment that Masjids provide.
UCI renovates or reconstructs damaged Masajid, providing valuable amenities for the entire community. The Chairman of UCI, Mufti Abdul Wahab states that: “We aim to work in those villages where Masajid have been completely demolished and reshape the religious identities of individuals in these areas.” UCI has been constructing Masaajid in order to facilitate people with a religious centre. Citizens of various areas are often deprived and out-of-touch with their Islamic associations – something which UCI wished to tackle with our Build a Masjid project.
Project implementation areas:
Kashmore, Ghospur, Pano Akil, Kandi Koth alongside many more
IMPORTANCE OF A MASJID
A Masjid is a place of spiritual and personal development but aside from this, religious and educational growth is also instigated. Statistics show that there are around 4 million Masajid in the world, yet little to none of these are in some of Pakistan’s most vulnerable districts. By building them in various localities, societies are encouraged to help each other through times of need and connect with their neighbours and families in a spiritual setting.
Every Masjid you contribute towards has the power to change lives.
IMPACT OF YOUR DONATION
By donating to this project, you can make the following impacts on a local, Pakistani district: individuals can reinforce their Islamic ethos, faith and religious duties; a sense of community is established and strengthened; local labourers will also be supported by building the Masjid; a Masjid provides a sense of learning and cohesion; core values of faith and unity are instilled and Masjids allow people to pray the five daily prayers as well as the sacred Jumaah prayers on Friday afternoon.
IMAM ABDUL GHAFOOR’S STORY
"These developments that UCI propelled into action are amazing for this small community; we've always wanted a masjid but because of lack of funding and support we've never been able to pray in one. Thanks to the charity, the donors, staff members, volunteers and all those who helped bring this masjid to life, our community has become a buzz of joy and unity and the masjid has seen hundreds of individuals participate in the five daily prayers. I am proud to be the Imam of such a unified and supportive community."
