In the heart of Kazimia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, stands the Imam Musa al-Kazim Mosque, a sanctuary that has served as a beacon of hope, unity, and spiritual nourishment. Recently, our cherished mosque suffered substantial damage; the temporary roof was torn away by fierce storms, exposing the prayer hall to the elements. Yet, the spirit of community remains unbroken. The freshly cemented floor bears testament to our resilience, providing a solid ground where daily Qur'an teachings and congregational prayers forge bonds of unity and faith.
We are reaching out to kind hearts worldwide to help us rebuild and fortify the mosque with a permanent roof, ensuring a safe and tranquil space for worship and learning.

“The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allah, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He pleases. And Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knower.” Holy Qur'an 2:261
