New Masjid Construction
Asalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakatuhu
All praise is due to Allah (SWT) who is the most kind and most merciful. The Masjid Al-Qudus member community has started the construction of a 3-storey mosque structure and activities are on-going. The Management Committee would like to thank the community and donors for their continued support.
"He who built a mosque for Allah, the Exalted, Allah would build for him a house in Paradise." - Al Hadith [Sahih Muslim Book 4 No. 1084 & 1085]
By the grace of Allah (SWT), in 2002, the late Hajji Abdul Noor Kakande Gaava donated a 50 x 100ft piece of land in the Katuuso area, right beside his home for the Masjid construction. Over the years more adjustments have been made to the mosque to accomodate the increasing number of attendants. Since his passing, his wife, Hajat Nuriat Nanteza Kakande, has continued to donate generously to the cause. On numerous occasions, she has offered chunks of land to the mosque to accomodate the perimeter wall, a toilet and washing area projects of the mosque. Recently, she has offered an extra 3-5ft chunk of land to accomadate this new Masjid mega plan.
Masjid Al-Qudus, Katuuso Construction Committee issued a Request For Proposal (RFP) to architectural companies in the Kampala Area. Three local companies responded to our bid. After a coulple of months of extensive review and evaluation of the bids received, the Masjid Construction Committee recommended an architect to the Management Committee. An Architecture Contract was finalised with the Architecture / Architectural Supervisor, Mr. Sentongo Charles, of Design Skill Associates, Architects and Building Consultants.
Project Scope: To build 8,000 sq. ft. masjid with classrooms for AMDA Sunday school.
Project Cost: The cost of construction of the masjid is estimated to be about UGX 846,000,000 (approximately $260,000). The permit fees and other miscellaneous Kampala City Council fees are estimated to be about UGX 14,500,000 (approximately $4,500).
Project Timeline: The construction of the masjid will take 24 - 36 months provided we have 100% funding.
The likeness of those who spend their wealth in Allah's way is as the likeness of a grain which growth seven ears, and in every ear a hundred grains. Allah giveth increase manifold to whom He will. Allah is All Embracing, All Knowing.” 2:261 (Holy Quran)
A lot of consideration has to go to the fact that the current Masjid will continuosly hold its daily service as all the phases of construction are on-goging. The new mosque structure will be built around the old mosque before it is broken down.
