Building Masjids in places where Muslims are not expected to permanently reside
Q 1: Is it permissible to build a Masjid (mosque) or convert a building into a Masjid in an area or town which is expected to be abandoned in the future? In
Muslims build a Masjid in a certain area to offer Salah (Prayer) in it. They return home after graduation and the Masjid becomes totally abandoned.
It is permissible to do this as it serves the public interest of Muslims, helps them practice the rites of Islam, and may lead other non-Muslims living in these areas to embrace Islam.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
