Asalaam Alaikum. Our new Mosque construction is another milestone that the Muslim community in Konge-Katuuso-Buziga has gotten to. It is another privilege that Allah has granted us and indeed another chance for us to ponder much on the many bounties that our Lord has unveiled for us. It Is the technology taught to mankind by Allah for every humanity to benefit from. Someone is doing some thing on behalf of others and that some one is Masjid Al-Qudus, Katuuso.

Ali Kibirige Chairman - Management Committee
