Madrasah on top of the World….Literally

asSalaam’alaykum wa Rahmatullah,

This post title from Muslim Apple entitled: Praying on top of Mountains in New Zealand reminded me about this madrasah a friend of mine brought to my attention: Marqaz Quba. It’s a madrasah in the Himalayas of Nepal. The project was initiated by a group of students from the Islamic University of Madeenah under the guidance of some of the scholars.

Seems liek an amazing cause and the brothers seem to be doing some really good work there. I’ve been checking the website regulary waiting for them to update the gallery. I wanted to see how the place looks, and how many students they have now.

The brothers there definitely need our support, so if anyone wants to donate then here’s the link.

alhamdulillah, as the Prophet (Sal Allahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam) once said, “…My Ummah(Muslim Nation) will reach it’s(the world’s) Eastern most corner as it will reach the Western most…”

There is still a lot of work to be done. Insha’allah, I plan on making a post soon about one of my experiences on this island. I actually met someone that had never heard the word Islam or Muslims. It felt so good talking to someone that had no clue about Islam.
