about the project
During Albania's communist rule, over 1000 masjid's were forced to closed down with religious practices being banned.
Only a handful of masjid's survived this era, most of them dilapidated. As of 1991, only two mosques in Tirana (Albania Capital) were fit for use by worshipers.
So far, Rahma (Mercy) have worked with donors to build 31 Masaajids in Albania.
Since then, people have been able to come together to pray in congregation as well as the facility being used for educational programmes and other everyday services. In rural Albania, a masjid is much more than a place of worship, is it a symbol of hope in re-establishing and reviving the spread of Islam.
