It turns out that building a mosque has a big priority. Even if we build just a small part it still has virtue.
Building a Mosque Even if it only donates one brick
From Jabir bin ‘Abdillah radhiyallahu‘ anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said,
مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدًا لِلَّهِ كَمَفْحَصِ قَطَاةٍ أَوْ أَصْغَرَ بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ بَيْتًا فِى الْجَنَّةِ
“Who built a mosque because of Allah even though it is only a hole where birds lay eggs or smaller, so Allah made it for him (home) like that in heaven.” (Narrated by Ibn Majah No. 738 saheeh)
Mafhash qathaah in the hadith means the hole used by the bird to put the egg and sniff at the place. And qathah is a kind of bird.
Ibn Hajar in Al-Fath (1: 545) states,
(مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدًا) التَّنْكِير فِيهِ لِلشُّيُوعِ فَيَدْخُلُ فِيهِ الْكَبِير وَالصَّغِير ، وَوَقَعَ فِي رِوَايَةِ أَنَس عِنْدَ التِّرْمِذِيِّ صَغِيرًا أَوْ كَبِيرًا
“The purpose of” who builds a mosque “is used by Ishimira who shows generality, so the purpose of the hadith is who built large and small mosques. In the history of Anas issued by Tirmidhi who supported the statement with a small or large mosque. ”
Still continuing Ibn Hajar’s explanation, which is explained in the hadith above is just a hyperbolic language. Because it is not possible for a place to put an egg and snort the size of it as a place of prayer. There is a history of Jabir which further strengthens this.
Some other scholars interpret the hadith textually. That is, who builds the mosque by adding only a small part that is needed, the addition is about the size of the place where birds lay eggs; or it could be a way, the congregation worked together to build a mosque and each person had a small portion the size of a place where birds lay eggs; this all comes in the term of building a mosque. Because the final form is a mosque in our minds, which is the place for us to pray.
This means that Ibn Hajar’s explanation above shows that if someone donates only one bag of cement or even contributes just one brick, it will get a reward for building a mosque … masya Allah.
What is Important Is Sincerity When Contributing
No matter how large the contribution to the mosque must be based on sincere intentions because of Allah. Because what is meant is lill, said Ibn Hajar is sincere (because of Allah). (Fath Al-Bari, 1: 545). So, the great reward of building the mosque mentioned in the hadith that we study can be achieved when we are sincere in doing charity, not to seek praise or reply from humans.
The Purpose of Built Buildings Such as in Heaven
The hadith about the importance of building mosques is also mentioned from the hadith of Uthman ibn Affan. In Uthman’s time, 30 years of the Hijrah to the time of his Caliphate ended because of his killing, the mosque of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam was built. Uthman said to those who built it as a form of denial that they were too proud. Then Uthman brought the word of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam,
مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدًا لِلَّهِ بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ فِى الْجَنَّةِ مِثْلَهُ
“Who built a mosque because of Allah, then Allah will build for him such as in heaven.” (Narrated by Bukhari no. 450 and Muslim no. 533).
Said Imam Nawawi rahimahullah, the intention will be built for him such as in heaven there are two interpretations:
1- God will build such a building called a temple (house). But its nature in terms of breadth and others, certainly has its own virtues. Buildings in heaven are certainly never seen by the eyes, never heard by the ears, and never come to mind the beauty.
2- The virtue of building obtained in heaven compared to a house in another heaven is like the virtue of a mosque in the world compared to houses in the world. (Shahih Muslim Syarh, 5: 14)
A mosque is only for show and pride
What is despicable is if the mosque is only for fun, not for the purpose of worship or competing in kindness. From Anas radhiyallahu ‘anhu, the Prophet sallallaahu‘ alaihi wa sallam said,
لاَ تَقُومُ السَّاعَةُ حَتَّى يَتَبَاهَى النَّاسُ فِى الْمَسَاجِدِ
“Doomsday does not occur until humans take pride in building mosques” (Narrated by Abu Daud no. 449, Ibn Majah No. 739, An-Nasa’i Ahmad number 19: 372. Syaikh ‘Abdullah Al-Fauzan stated that the hadad sanad this is authentic according to Muslim conditions, the narrator is tsiqah, Al-Hafizh Abu Thahir also concluded that this hadith sanad is saheeh).
That is the reality that is happening today in the midst of the Muslims. Shaykh Abdullah bin Shalih Al-Fauzan hafizhahullah said, “The meaning of the hadith is to boast one another with its mosque. Someone will say, oh my highest mosque, my biggest mosque or my mosque is the best. It is all done because of riya ‘and sum’ah, ie looking for praise. That is the reality that is happening to the Muslims today. “(Minhah Al-‘Allam, 2: 495). That’s the end of the torment.
Hopefully useful. Hopefully this article will further motivate us to build a mosque in the world, so God makes us a beautiful home and full of joy in heaven. Wallahu waliyyut taufiq.
