Assalamu alikum brother.


I would like to know is it acceptable to ask my other religion friends help in the form of money to bulit up a mosque in my hometown.

Collect donations from disbeleivers for mosque

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 9 Surah Taubah Verse 18:

18 The Masaajids of Allah shall be tended by such alone as believe in Allah and the Last Day, establish regular prayers, practice regular charity, and fear none (at all) except Allah. It is they who are expected to be on true guidance.


The Noble Houses of Allah Subhanah on this earth must only be funded by the pure and non-zakah funds of the believers alone. The disbelievers should neither be asked nor encouraged to donate towards the building of a Masjid under any circumstances; nor should the funds they wish to volunteer themselves ever be used in the making of a Noble House of the Lord Most Majestic, Most Supreme.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
