Gambia Mosque Project


The Messenger of Allah (SAW) 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.”  Sahih Al-Bukhari

A masjid 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. The role of the masjid is to help people learn more about Islam and to nurture their moral and spiritual development.


This is a Muslim community located in the rural western region in Gambia called Basori. Gambia is a country with over 95% Muslims. There are over 5,000 worshippers who pray at a make shift Mosque in Basori and the imam and teachers lead classes of nearly 2,000 children in a mud hut madrassa. The current space is very small and during congregational prayers most people pray outside on dirt ground.

 The community is quite improvised and the primary source of income is dependent on agriculture. An average family makes less than $2 a day!
