Guardians of the Houses of Allah are a special group of people who support, organize, donate to, and maintain the places where people gather to worship and glorify their Lord. Their role is one of great honor and reward when performed with sincerity and excellence.
This book outlines best practices in planning, organizing, and maintaining Allah’s Houses, patterned after how the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم operated his Masjid. Spiritual dimensions covered include the centrality of prayer and the reward for those who serve the Masjid. The Masjid is a nucleus of knowledge, a welcoming home, a dawah center, and a refuge. Above all, the Masjid is a place of prayer.
Readers will find guidelines on legal issues, protecting assets in a waqf, donor relationships, financial sustainability, designing an environmentally-friendly facility, and more. With recommendations backed by meticulous research, surveys, and decades of experience, this small volume is indispensable for all who frequent, love, and care for their Masjids.
