Which is better… establishing a Masjid or a School? – Shaykh Uthaymeen
Shaykh al-Uthaymeen (Rahimahullah) was asked:
Which of the two is better -if an individual wants to partake in good actions- building (establishing) a school for the memorisation of Quran or building (establishing) a mosque?
He (Rahimahullah) answered:
(The affair is) in accordance to the need; if the (particular) land needed a mosque more than a school for memorisation of Quran; (then) build a mosque, and if it was the opposite, build a school. The person should contemplate and ponder and not be hasty.

We ask our brothers & sisters to help us establish a School here in Manchester. Alhamdulillah we already have a masjid, with lessons in Qur’an, Arabic & Islamic Studies for Adults and Children. However a school is missing, and is a great neccessity for us.
Do not delay and gather as much reward as possible this Ramadhaan. May Allah facilitate it for us, and grant us forgiveness and his mercy.
