The Daarussalaam Mosque is a simple mosque built on a public facility (fasum) in Bumi Adipura Housing 2 RW 06 Rancabolang Subdistrict Kec. Gedebage Bandung City. The 8 x 10 m mosque building was built in 2005 through donations from developers and community self-help. As the only mosque in the Bumi Adipura 2 residential area that covers a separate RW area, the Daarussalaam mosque is a place of worship for more than 200 Muslim families. The Jema’ah that use the mosque also include its surroundings, office employees around the complex, and people who are in travel through around the complex.
However, the problem that now arises is that the size of the mosque is too small while the number of jema’ah increases from year to year as the population grows so that the mosque is no longer able to accommodate it.
Finally on August 1, 2017 through the board meeting of the Daarussalaam mosque, the Advisor, the Local Community Management, and the Jema’ah agreed to rebuild the mosque in a structured and planned manner.
In the planning stages, the committee has set up plans to build a new mosque that cannot only be used for daily prayers but can be the center of activity for the community. In hope of creating an institution of learning that can help build a strong Islamic foundation for young muslims in the surrounding areas.
The mosque is planned to consist of two main areas, the front end and the back end. The front end will be the main floor that will act as the main payer room and public facilities spanning an area of 513 m² which will connect to the back end that will consist of two floors with an extent of 240 m².
The main floor will be used as the designated praying area and a multifunction room while the first floor will be used as office space for daily operational activities for the mosque’s staff.
The expected expenditure to build the new mosque is expected to be around IDR. 3.125 billion or US$ 208,352. We are hoping that we can amass those funds from kind domestic and international donators.
With that in mind, we are hoping for your willingness to participate in the construction of our beloved mosque. Your kind participation can be in the form of helping us through donating to our charity fundraising.
