Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Masjid Juhaina was established as a mosque for the tribes of Juhaina and Billi by the Prophet (ﷺ). It is on the southern end of Mount Sila.

  • Ibn Shaiba narrates from Maaz Ibn Abdullah Ibn Abi Mariam Ajjahani and others that the  Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) prayed in Juhaina mosque.
  • Jabir Ibn Osama Ajjahani says, ”I met the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) with his companions in the market. I asked, ”Where were you going with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)?” They said, ”To set a mosque for your people”. I  came back and saw that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) set a mosque for my people and inserted a wooden stick in to refer to the Qiblah direction”. This happened in the spot where the mosque stands today.
