Bismillah in Arabic

Islamic Cultural Center of Bruges

We’ve got some fantastic news! After a long period of seeking we’ve finally found a new building (including parking space) for the Islamic community of Bruges, Belgium! As most of you know, Bruges’ CICB has been struggling with various unbearable problems for a long time…

Current building and its problems

Our current building is located within a residential area; that in itself has caused several problems within the urban structure of the neighbourhood. The building has become way too small hence, Mashallah, our community has grown by factor 10 over the last few years. Therefore we are very grateful, yet it further stresses the need of a new suitable building with enough space to fit all believers.


A new building

The administration of the CICB has been for a long time in search of a new fitting building where all believers can come together and offer their acts of worship in a safe and agreeable manner. That in itself was a huge challenge. Thus Alhamdulillah, we have finally found an ideal place and thereby we have signed a contract for the purchase of a new large building and parking lot. We shall also have plenty of space available for class rooms, a library, conference rooms and a meeting hall. The library and classrooms will be used to provide Arabic and Quranic classes to children, youth and adults by experienced pedagogically trained teachers.

It’s time to unite together and bring about all means necessary to be able to purchase this mosque and finalize its payment order. For the above mentioned reasons we would like to appeal to all believing brothers and sisters who could sustain us, Inshallah, in realising this long fought-for dream of the Bruges muslim community. Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise. (Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدًا لِلَّهِ كَمَفْحَصِ قَطَاةٍ ، أوْ أَصْغَرَ ، بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ

“Whoever builds a mosque for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow's nest for Allah or even smaller, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise. [Ibn Maadjah n. 738]s

إِنَّمَا يَعۡمُرُ مَسَٰجِدَ ٱللَّهِ مَنۡ ءَامَنَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلۡيَوۡمِ ٱلۡأٓخِرِ وَأَقَامَ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتَى ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَلَمۡ يَخۡشَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهَۖ فَعَسَىٰٓ أُوْلَٰٓئِكَ أَن يَكُونُواْ مِنَ ٱلۡمُهۡتَدِينَ

The mosques of Allah are only to be maintained by those who believe in Allah and the Last Day and establish prayer and give zakah and do not fear except Allah, for it is expected that those will be of the rightly guided. Surah At-Taubah, ayah 18
