Brief Introduction of Khuddam-ul-Masajid
A Department of Dawat-e-Islami
Sayyiduna Abu Huraira رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ has narrated that the Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has said: ‘The one who builds a Masjid from ‘Halal wealth, Allah Almighty will build a house of pearls and rubies for him in Paradise.’ (Tabarani Awsat, vol. 4, pp. 17, Hadees 5059)
اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ!! To date (Rabi’-ul-Awwal 1440 Hijri, corresponding to November 2018), the Madani movement of the devotees of Rasool, Dawat-e-Islami, has spread its Madani message in approximately more than 195 countries of the world. Moreover, اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ!! Dawat-e-Islami is engaged in serving Sunnahs in more than 105 departments. ‘Khuddam-ul-Masajid’ is one of those departments.
A Masjid holds paramount importance in Islam. It is the House of Allah Almighty. It is the basic source of acquiring knowledge of the Holy Quran and Sunnah. Muslims perform individual and collective worship of Allah Almighty in it. In view of the need of Masajid, Kanz-ul-Iman was the first Masjid built after the global Madani Markaz. Thereafter, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnah دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ formed a Majlis comprising of few Islamic brothers and named it ‘Majlis Khuddam-ul-Masajid’, and gave them the mind-set that Masajid be built in the whole world by Dawat-e-Islami.
Majlis Khuddam-ul-Masajid performs all the matters regarding the land of the Masjid, its purchase and waqf according to the Shar’i, legal and organisational procedures. اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ!! To date, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Masajid has built hundreds of Masajid and constructions of further Masajids are in progress. There is a ratio of two Masajid being built on daily basis in the whole world.
Therefore, the areas or cities where Masajid are needed, the responsible Islamic brothers of Khuddam-ul-Masajid try to purchase the land/property in those areas after consulting with their Nigran and obtaining Shar’i guidance from Dar-ul-Ifta Ahl-e-Sunnat. They especially soothe the eyes of Muslims and provide solace to their hearts by purchasing land/properties for Masajid especially in new towns and colonies, and completing its construction work. Pictures of the Masajid to be constructed by the Majlis Khuddam-ul-Masajid and those that are under construction are available in the form of a detailed album. It costs millions of rupees all the way from purchasing the land/property to the phase of constructing/extending it and buying material for it. All these expenses are met from the donations given by the devotees of Rasool.
Let us take part in this noble cause along with the Majlis Khuddam-ul-Masajid and make our Duniyah [this world] and the Hereafter better.
May Allah Almighty shower further blessings in your sustenance and bless you with the goodness of the both worlds. Aameen.
The Holy Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّمhas stated:
· ‘Indeed, Sadaqah protects its payers from the heat of the grave, and undoubtedly, a Muslim will be in the shade of his Sadaqah on the Day of Judgement.’ (Shu’ab-ul-Iman, vol. 3, pp. 212)
· ‘Sadaqah does not lessen wealth. Hence, do give Sadaqah.’ (Tirmizi, Hadees 2325)
‘Support through your Sadaqaat for the purchase of land/properties for Masajid and Madaris, and for the construction on the land/properties that have already been purchased beforehand or afterwards.’
