WILLS HOLMES FOUNDATION Mosque Project Appeal
‘Build a mosque in this world and build a place in Jannah’
The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said that ‘whoever construct a mosque for Allah, Allah in return will build a house for him in Paradise (Jannah).
We all know that having a comfortable place to practice and share your faith is so important, but within the Muslim communities in the developing world such as Sierra Leone, they don’t always have this option.
A mosque is at the heart of any local Muslim community. It provides a place for its worshippers to pray and contemplate as well as being a hub for educational programmes and other everyday services or activities. The role of the mosque subsequently, is to help and support people to learn more about Islam and to nurture their moral and spiritual development.
By building a mosque you will not only earn the reward of providing a community for your brothers and sisters in Africa, but it will also be a house of Allah, where your Sadaqah Jariya will continue giving benefit for a generation to come. Insha’Allah.
How WILLS HOLMES get involved?
This Ramadan 2018, Wills Holmes Foundation helps Muslim brothers and sisters with foods during Suhoor and iftaar. We also provide meals for Eid ul-Fitr. Alhamdulillah, the outcome was impactful not only to our Muslim brothers and sisters but the community as a whole. Wills Holmes, hope to extend and continue these Sadaqah in the future.
WHAT do WE know?
The masjid is in the Bomeh community in Sierra Leone, West Africa. Currently, our brothers and sisters prayed and performed their everyday services in an incompleted construction. In Sierra Leone at present, it is the raining season. For our brothers and sisters, this means they will have an unsuitable place to worship as there is a leakage in the roof and when it rains water does enter the Masjid, therefore prevents our brother and sisters from using the masjid in performing their daily prayers and other Islamic activities.
The ‘Bomeh Muslim community,’ in the past did raise money to finish the Masjid building, but the money went into the wrong hands.
Donating towards the building of a blessed MASJID ensure that our beloved brothers and sisters in Africa can share in that very same joy as we are in the developed world throughout the year!

We still haven't reach our target to build the masjid at the Bomeh Community. However, we did some fundraising in Essex at Valentine Park during Eid in the park celebration with EMAN Channel and at the Multicultural Parade organised by Queen's Park Community Orchard. We now have the total amount of £690 but we are far away from reaching our target, which is £6,000 ( Estimate given to us by a building contractor). We still need your support in facilitating this project. Insha'Allah.
