In September 2017, patrons of the Bilal Murqaz Masjid mosque in Liberia, were looking at the charred remains of their local place of worship which was victim to an electrical fault.
Three people suffered severe burns on Monday 4th September 2017 when the Mosque was gutted by fire in the Day-Break-Mouth-Open Community on the Barnersville Road, in the suburbs of Monrovia. The electricity supplier was thought to be at fault.

“This is what Allah destined, and therefore, it must come to pass,” the mosque Imam said.

The Mosque hosted a non-profit learning centre said to have impacted the lives of the Muslim Community, specifically in education. The mosque was also a boarding school for children.
The Imam praised Allah as some of the students were still on holiday and were expected to return for classes on the day the fire occurred, adding, “We have 78 to 90 students attending the school.”

He called on the Muslim community, particularly members of the council, to rebuild the mosque so that the students can continue their academic calendar.
The school was founded in 2012, and has since that time been known to have benefited hundreds of school-going children in the community and outlining regions.
Because Caravan of Mercy have been distributing food to nearby areas in Monrovia since 2015, concerned mosque members approached the charity for financial assistance in rebuilding the mosque. We are now requesting your financial help.

Masjid e Ebrahim mosque, Liberia

Hadith: Uthman ibn Affan reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, then Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise.” [Bukhari, Muslim]

Caravan of Mercy recognise the immense virtue that Allah has placed on constructing mosques. For this reason, we have been encouraging the public to help us, help poor communities around the world who are themselves in need of a place to worship. After establishing good connections in Liberia, West Africa, we decided to initiate mosque projects there. Our first such construction being Masjid Ebrahim.

Caravan of Mercy were asked by a community in West Africa to help them rebuild their burnt down mosque in a poor suburb of Monrovia, the capital of Liberia. The chairman (of Caravan of Mercy), Molana Ebrahim visited the country and inspected the site. On behalf of Caravan of Mercy UK and its supporters, Molana pledged to initially raise enough funds to complete the first phase.

On the 3rd of May 2018 in Birmingham UK, a young family man by the name of Ebrahim,  passed away as a result of a sudden heart failure leaving behind his wife and two daughters.
Ebrahim, who was born with a heart condition, was an inspirational character known for both his charitable attitude and positive manner. His grieving father, established a charity (The Ebrahim Kola Foundation Trust) and thereafter an event to climb on Mount Snowdon in Wales, UK, in August 2018. This fundraising event was organised with Caravan of Mercy and was supported by many family and friends. The foundation was initially set-up to benefit Ebrahim in the next life and for his name to be remembered.

Liberia is one of the smallest countries in West Africa, it has been devastated by a civil war that left the country in ruins. The war ended in 2003, but most of Liberia sadly remains underdeveloped. Ebrahim’s father said that his son would be most enthusiastic about building a centre of learning that would benefit generations to come.

It was hoped that the funding would provide a lasting legacy in his son’s memory and a means to reward for all those that have been involved in making this project happen. The aim was to raise £42,00 to build the Masjid and additional classroom facilities.

Construction for Masjid Ebrahim began 2 years after the fire in September 2019. The mosque is located in Freetown, lower Virginia (a western suburb of Monrovia), Liberia. A charity dinner was further organised in December 2019 in order to cover the final costs of the project. This charity dinner event was so successful that classrooms, toilets, bath and ablution areas have now been added to the mosque project.

In the end, over £50,000 was raised and spent on this venture which will, God willing, continue to benefit Marhoom Ebrahim Kola, his family, friends as well as others who have contributed towards it in some way, for many many years to come.
