Islamic Foundation- Building Houses Of Worship (Mosques)

Mashallah,our Foundation has built and runs about 90 mosques in Tanzania. To put everything in perspective, each mosque requires an Imam and Muadhin or Imam only to implement day to day activities as salat, cleaning and overall maintenance. We should not forget that every Mosque is Allah's (SWT) sacred house. In our homes we keep 3 or more workers to serve us yet it seems difficult to make sure that Allah's (SWT) house is maintained. To maintain a mosque costs about US$70 - US$100 depending on the qualifications of Imam and caretakers.

Islamic Foundation- Centre for Qur'an Memorization

"Alif Laam Raa. A book which we have revealed to you (Muhammad) so that you may lead the people from out of the darknesses into the light by their Lord's leave to the path of the All-Mighty, the Praiseworthy" Qu'ran 14:1

Our Qur'an School is located on the second floor at Masjid Haqq. We put great emphasis on teaching and understanding the Holy Qur'an.

The Qur'an is a Message from Allah (SWT) to humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from the Almighty Himself (SWT) to the angel Jibril to the Prophet Muhammad (SWS). This message was given to the Prophet (SWS) in pieces over a period spanning approximately 23 years. The Prophet (SWS) was 40 years old when the Qur'an began to be revealed to him, and he was 63 when the revelation was completed. The language of the original message was Arabic, but it has been translated into many other languages.

The Qur'an is one leg of two which form the basis of Islam. The second leg is the SUNNAH of the Prophet (SWS). What makes the Qur'an different from the Sunnah is primarily its form. Unlike the Sunnah, the Qur'an is quite literally the Word of Allah, whereas the Sunnah was inspired by Allah but the wording and actions are the Prophet's. The Qur'an has not been expressed using any human's words. Its wording is letter for letter fixed by no one but Allah.
