The best of places is a mosque and the act of building a mosque is the most blessed and virtuous of all acts. It is a highly commendable way to thank Allah Almighty for His tremendous blessings and to earn eternal rewards of the hereafter. Prophet Mohammad S.A.W said “Whosoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah will build for him likewise in Paradise (Sahih Bukhari)” and in another narration it is stated “The most beloved of places to Allah is the mosque and the most detested of places is the market place (Sahih Muslim)”
