The urgent need for the Muslims on the island of Bornholm, and the project “The purchase of the first mosque on Bornholm”.

Assalaamu ‘alaikom wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu

There live approx. 250 Muslims on the island of Bornholm. These 250 Muslims have well and thoroughly established themselves on the island. Many of them are under the age of 18 and have never before visited and experienced the atmosphere of a mosque. However, they have often seen and heard about them on the internet or from their parents.

For this reason, some brothers and sisters on the island of Bornholm took the initiative in September 2020 to establish the association “Det Islamiske Fællenskap på Bornholm” or in English “The Islamic Community on Bornholm”. The overall purpose of the association is to unite all Muslims on the island of Bornholm by first and foremost making a gathering place available in the name of Allah. This place should not only be a place of worship but also a place where many different positive activities will be established and held. These all with the intention of contributing to that we together can help each other to strengthen and develop our Muslim identity, in accordance with the Islamic values ​​and for the benefit of society.

If Allah allows it and we get to buy a place that we can turn into a mosque, then this will be the first time that this has happened on the island of Bornholm. There have been brothers and sisters who have rented some rooms here and there in the past, but unfortunately it has never lasted long. This time we, Muslims, have to buy a place so that there will forever be a mosque on the island of Bornholm so that every Muslim has the opportunity to pray and participate in the various activities.

“The Islamic Community on Bornholm” will, with the permission of Allah, do the following when a house is purchased in the name of Allah:

  • Establish the five daily prayers
  • Establish Friday prayer. This with the desire to also invite knowledgeable preachers to Bornholm, who can hold the Friday prayer.
  • Establish teaching in Arabic.
  • Establish teaching in the Qur’an.
  • Establish teaching in basic Islamic knowledge.
  • Establish attractive activities for everyone, regardless of age and gender.
  • Prioritize preaching (da’wah) on Islam very highly.
  • Hold lectures for interested parties such as schools, colleges, universities, associations etc.

“Det Islamiske Fællesskab på Bornholm” estimates that the project will cost approx. $250.000.
And it is our hope, after putting our trust in Allah, that we will be able to collect this amount before the month of Ramadan ends.
