In spite of the existence of educational incubators and educational and cultural centers that began to spread on the European scene two decades ago, mosques remain the main center in the life of Muslims here.
| Unprecedented challenges
| The financial future of mosques
Whoever lived in Europe during the nineties did not know in his mind that these donations to mosques from the Gulf countries would be cut off someday, and that they were not only interrupted, but there is a complete blockade and drying up of the sources of financial support, and we are not hidden from the campaigns of intimidation, distortion and the continuous attacks on mosques in Germany and some European countries, all of this leads to restrictions on mosques, those in charge of them and their supporters.
1- People of trust are the source of good
2- Full transparency with members of the General Assembly and philanthropists
We believe that the mosques send to the association members a monthly report on the educational, advocacy, educational and social programs that the mosque is carrying out so that people can see the efforts made and be partners in the sheep and the fine, as well as direct meetings with the mosque audience, volunteers and donors and present those reports along with periodic financial reports.
| What are western Muslims waiting for from mosques?
The generations that trampled their feet on the land of Europe, America, Canada and Australia have made strenuous efforts. They have embarked on the construction of mosques and cut off the surplus of their children to build mosques that God has permitted to be raised. And I think that the noble reader will now attend pictures of those who knew them and saw their hearts attached to the houses of God.
I did not understand the words of the Messenger, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him about the seven whom God will shade in his shadow on the day there is no shadow but his shadow, including: “A man of his heart hangs in the mosques” until I saw them with my own eyes and lived with them for months and years, and I enraged them with this renewed longing in their hearts for the mosque and their concern for it as they were keen on their little ones. The generation has performed and fulfilled a lot. May God reward them well for what they did. There is no doubt that the performance of mosques on the European scene has significantly improved in form and content, so many mosques moved from rent to ownership, and the performance of administrations developed in a good way, and mosques promoted the establishment of Saturday and Sunday schools and concerned with the scientific and educational training of teachers, and European institutions established Arabic language curricula that take into account the privacy of the child born in Europe and the West in general.
| What are the hopes held on the mosques currently?
We still have great hopes in achieving the mosque’s mission in the West and fulfilling its role in a manner that will repeat its first biography on the day the Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, built his mosque to be a place for building generations in faith, scientific, educational, social, cultural and political constructs, in which men and women participate.
