Illuminate the Dome of the Rock Masjid!

The Prophet (saw) was asked, ‘If one of us cannot visit it (Al-Aqsa), what should we do?’ He (saw) said, ‘Then he should make a gift of some oil to be lit therein [in its lamps]. For indeed the one who gifts this to it will be like the one who has prayed therein [worth 1,000 prayers]’. [Ahmad]

Alhamdulillah, we are honoured to offer you the incredible opportunity to help illuminate the Dome of the Rock Masjid!

Situated at the centre of the Blessed Masjid Al-Aqsa complex, this is believed to be the exact location where the Prophet (saw) ascended into the heavens on Al-Isra wal-Mi’raj. SubhanAllah, as well as meeting prophets and angels (as) on this journey, he (saw) also met Allah (swt), our Lord and Creator!

Illuminating this sacred space equals to the same reward of praying in the Holy Mosque- and the reward is worth 1,000 prayers!

Ma sha’ Allah, you have been helping to preserve the Blessed Masjid Al-Aqsa for over a decade now. Since 2008, you have helped to build new wudhu areas, repair paving stones, illuminate various areas of this site, and so much more!

The illumination of the Dome of the Rock Masjid is another chance for you to honour Al-Aqsa. Don’t miss out on gaining the reward of 1,000 prayers!

You can give this beautiful Sadaqah Jariyah on behalf of yourself or a loved one who may have passed on. Either way, you’ll be reaping its incredible rewards for years to come, Insha’ Allah!

More from Masjid Al Aqsa

Renovating the Bab ar-Rahmah Cemetery

‘And whoever honours the symbols of Allah - indeed, it is from the piety of hearts’. [Quran, 22:32]

Bab ar-Rahmah was established at the time of Umar ibn al-Khattab (ra), and thus, is around 1,400 years old!


Covering 11,000 square metres, it includes the graves of over 70 Companions, leaders, scholars and Sahabah such as Ubadah ibn Samit (ra), the first Islamic judge of Shaam and al-Quds. 

Martyrs from many armies who defended Jerusalem are also buried here, as well as Turk Muslims who lived and died in Ottoman times. Join us in preserving this significant Islamic landmark by giving Sadaqah Jariyah today.


Illuminating the Qibali Masjid

Abdullah Ibn Abbas (ra) said, ‘The Prophets built the Sacred House (Masjid Al-Aqsa) and the Prophets lived therein. There is not a single handspan of space in it except that a Prophet has prayed there or an angel has stood’.

Alhamdulillah, we have just finished fundraising for the state-of-the-art lighting system for the Qibali Masjid Grand Prayer Hall!

The existing lighting system was over 30 years old and was at risk of causing a fire. Alhamdulillah, with your donations, we have already started to rewire the Qibali Masjid, allowing generations of worshippers to pray in safety and keep our history preserved.

We only began this historic Sadaqah Jariyah project in March 2019 but since then, you have raised enough to illuminate the whole Masjid, Masha’ Allah!
