The Salsabil workers like to say that Africa is like a door to Paradise for everyone who aspires to please Allah by sacrificing from what He has given them. The cost of building facilities in African countries is much cheaper than anywhere else in the world, and the possibility of investing for constant charity (sadaqa jariya) is given to people even with an average income.
Building mosques is one of the priorities of Salsabil. We place great importance upon the development of religious and secular education of the African population. Disciplined and educated people are an investment in the future of these countries. We actively build learning facilities, mosques and prayer rooms in Benin, Togo and Niger.
The inhabitants of poor villages rarely have the means to build mosques. For example, in Niger, the areas that are far away from the capital hardly have any decent living conditions in general, let alone the impossible task of building mosques. The government is unable to properly support the population, so the people regularly seek help from international humanitarian organisations.
Thanks to the active humanitarian presence in the region, Salsabil constantly receives such calls and by the Mercy of Allah, manages to respond to their requests and turn their inquiries into reality. This is only possible because of righteous Muslims, who follow the Sunnah and want to please their Lord, so they spend and donate from what He has given them.
It was narrated from Jabir bin ‘Abdullah that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: “Whoever builds a mosque for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow’s nest or even smaller, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise.” Sunan Ibn Majah Vol. 1, Book 4, Hadith 738.
Uthman ibn Affan reported that the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, then Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise.” Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhārī 439, Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim 533.
We put in our utmost efforts to fulfil our obligations towards our sponsors. Once a project is done, Salsabil provides the sponsors with documents for proof, as well as pictures and video reports. If a person wishes to name the mosque after himself, it can be done as well.
These are the approximate price ranges for mosques in Africa (Niger, Benin, Togo, Chad) :
7х7 — 5 200 €
8х6 — 8 300 €
9х8 — 10 400 €
10х12 — 15 500 €
15х12— 27 500 €
20х20 — 35 000 €
If you have a budget over 5000€, we can build a mosque entirely upon your donation, there is no need to fit into one of these prices – and size-ranges.
You may entirely finance a mosque, or partly, depending on your ability. If you wish to finance a mosque on your own, then we can discuss more concretely about it, to see the different prices of soil according to the location, the country and the manual labour.
