Sunnah 148: Share in the building of a mosque

November 18, 2010

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Whosoever shares in building a masjid for Allah,
even if it is as small as a bird’s nest, Allah will build for
him a house in Paradise.” [Ahmad]

Some may ask- is this really a simple sunnah? But it is, because the Prophet (pbuh) said that if we share in the building of a mosque, even if our contribution is as small as a bird’s nest, we will have a house built for us in Jannah. When the Prophet (pbuh) moved to Madina, and they commenced in building his mosque, he worked with the companions (ra) in building it. Why? Because he wanted the reward. Nowadays, we do not build mosques with our own hands, but let us be part of building it by contributing money, sharing in the decision-making process and making ourselves available for help if a mosque is being built in our community. Who knows how many houses Allah the Most generous will build for you in Jannah?
