Assalamu’alaikum warohmatullahi wabarokaatuhu.
In the name of Allah, first of all we are gladly to announce that after getting all supports and donations from all muslims both in Japan and worldwide, finally the target amount to fulfill the payment of the land and building, which is projected for the first masjid in Hiroshima, has been achieved. On the 14th of November 2011, Hiroshima Islamic Cultural Center (HICC) has fulfilled the payment of that building and land. On the 16th of November 2011 (20 Dzulhijjah 1432) Hiroshima Court has changed to ownership of the land and building to HICC, walhamdulillah. This date becomes a historical date for the estabilshment of the first masjid in Hiroshima, Japan.
On 24 November 2011, we are gladly to announce that the masjid project has been sucessfully accomplished and therefore the Hiroshima Masjid Donation Campaign is formally closed. May Allah accept all of your supports, donations and prayers. May Allah reward us with a house in Al-Jannah as He promises and may Allah help us in the today’s life and in the hereafter.
If you still want to give your zakah, infaq and sodaqoh for the Islamic activities in Hiroshima, you can still transfer your donation to the HIROSHIMA MASJEED in Japan Post Bank with the account number 15140-2070951.
On behalf of the Hiroshima Islamic Cultural Center – Hiroshima Muslim Association Committee Board, we would like to sincerely thank to all of your efforts and supports.

Assalamu’alaikum warohmatullahi wabarokaatuhu.
To remind ourselves:
الَّذِينَ يُنفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ لاَ يُتْبِعُونَ مَا أَنفَقُواُ مَنًّا وَلاَ أَذًى لَّهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ وَلاَ خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلاَ هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ
The likeness of those who spend their wealth in the Way of Allâh, is as the likeness of a grain (of corn); it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. Allâh gives manifold increase to whom He wills. And Allâh is All-Sufficient for His creatures’ needs, All-Knower. Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allâh, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve(sad)
Allah described the Muslims who will get allah forgiveness and inter the paradise
الَّذِينَ يُقِيمُونَ الصَّلاةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ
Those Who establish regular prayers and spend out of the gifts we have given them. They are the real muoomins , allah will forgive them and give them the highest degrees in JANNAH.
Allah give a promise that he will reward us if we spend for him.
ولا ينفقون نفقة صغيرة ولا كبيرة ولا يقطعون واديا الا كتب لهم ليجزيهم الله احسن ما كانوا يعملون
Nor could they spend anything (for Allah) – small or great- nor cut across a valley, but the deed is inscribed to their credit: that Allah may requite their deed with the best (possible reward)
إن الله اشترى من المؤمنين أنفسهم وأموالهم بان لهم الجنة
[9:111] Allah has bought from the believers their lives and their money in exchange for Paradise.
سمع أبو الدحداح (الصحابي الجليل رضي الله عنه) قوله تعالى: )من ذا الذي يقرض الله قرضا حسنا فيضاعفه له أضعافا كثيرة( . قال: يا رسول الله! وإن الله ليريد منا القرض؟ قال: نعم يا أبا الدحداح، قال: أرني يدك يا رسول الله، فناوله يده، قال: فإني قد أقرضت ربي حائطي، وله فيه ستمائة نخلة
Abu aldahdah radi allah 3anho heared the verse (Who will lend Allah a goodly loan, so that He may give it increase manifold) then he said does allah need a loan from us? Our messenger PBUH said yes. Abu aldahadah said give me your hand. Our messenger give him his hand. Abu aldahdah said I have given my garden to allah, it was 600 palm trees in his garden.
وكذلك فعل أبو بكر رضي الله عنه فقد تصدق بكل ماله.. وعندما يسأله رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: ماذا تركت لعيالك؟ فيقول: تركت لهم الله ورسوله.
Abo baker radi allah 3anho give all his money for allah. When our messenger asked him what have you left for your family? He said I left allah and his messenger for them.
ومما يطمئن المؤمن، ويدفعه للبذل والتضحية أن ما يفعله لا يضيع بل يقابل بالإحسان، وأعظم الجزاء، وأجزل العطاء من الله تعالى، فهو القائل: )وما أنفقتم من شيء فهو يخلفه وهو خير الرازقين(
Allah will reward us for all what we have spend for him. Allah said (And whatever you spend (for Allah) He will replace it. And He is the Best of Providers.) Our messenger said that sadakah will not decrease your wealth. Infact there are so many hadith and verses talking about spending in the cause of allah.
What about who is stingy and do not like to spend for allah.
قُلْ إِن كَانَ آبَاؤُكُمْ وَأَبْنَاؤُكُمْ وَإِخْوَانُكُمْ وَأَزْوَاجُكُمْ وَعَشِيرَتُكُمْ وَأَمْوَالٌ اقْتَرَفْتُمُوهَا وَتِجَارَةٌ تَخْشَوْنَ كَسَادَهَا وَمَسَاكِنُ تَرْضَوْنَهَا أَحَبَّ إِلَيْكُم مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَجِهَادٍ فِي سَبِيلِهِ فَتَرَبَّصُواْ حَتَّى يَأْتِيَ اللَّهُ بِأَمْرِهِ وَاللَّهُ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْفَاسِقِينَ
Proclaim: “If your parents, your children, your siblings, your spouses, your family, the money you have earned, a business you worry about, and the homes you cherish are more beloved to you than Allah and His messenger, and the striving in His cause, then just wait until Allah brings His judgment.” Allah does not guide the wicked people. 9(24) tawabah.
Allah asked us in quran very clear question in sorat alhadid
وَمَا لَكُمْ أَلاَّ تُنفِقُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ وَلِلَّهِ مِيرَاثُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ لا يَسْتَوِي مِنكُم مَّنْ أَنفَقَ مِن قَبْلِ الْفَتْحِ وَقَاتَلَ أُوْلَئِكَ أَعْظَمُ دَرَجَةً مِّنَ الَّذِينَ أَنفَقُوا مِن بَعْدُ وَقَاتَلُوا وَكُلا وَعَدَ اللَّهُ الْحُسْنَى وَاللَّهُ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ خَبِيرٌ
57:10] Why do not you spend in the cause of Allah, when Allah possesses all wealth in the heavens and the earth?
[57:11] Who would like to loan Allah a loan of righteousness, to have it multiplied for him manifold, and end up with a generous recompense?
This is a question allah had given to us to test our faith. Allah asked us to loan him and he will reward us a generously. Allah learned us in sorat mohamed.
هَاأَنتُمْ هَؤُلاء تُدْعَوْنَ لِتُنفِقُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَمِنكُم مَّن يَبْخَلُ وَمَن يَبْخَلْ فَإِنَّمَا يَبْخَلُ عَن نَّفْسِهِ وَاللَّهُ الْغَنِيُّ وَأَنتُمُ الْفُقَرَاء وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوْا يَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ ثُمَّ لا يَكُونُوا أَمْثَالَكُمْ
[47:38] You are invited to spend in the cause of Allah, but some of you turn stingy. The stingy are stingy towards their own souls. Allah is Rich, while you are poor. If you turn away, He will substitute other people in your place, and they will not be like you.
Let us hear the last ayat in sorat alsaf
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا هَلْ أَدُلُّكُمْ عَلَى تِجَارَةٍ تُنجِيكُم مِّنْ عَذَابٍ أَلِيمٍ
تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَتُجَاهِدُونَ فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ بِأَمْوَالِكُمْ وَأَنفُسِكُمْ ذَلِكُمْ خَيْرٌ لَّكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ
يغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ وَيُدْخِلْكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِن تَحْتِهَا الأَنْهَارُ وَمَسَاكِنَ طَيِّبَةً فِي جَنَّاتِ عَدْنٍ ذَلِكَ الْفَوْزُ الْعَظِيمُ
[61:10] O you who believe, let Me inform you of a trade that will save you from painful punishment.
[61:11] Believe in Allah and His messenger and strive in the cause of Allah with your money and your lives. This is the best deal for you, if you only knew.
[61:12] In return, He forgives your sins, and admits you into gardens with flowing streams, with beautiful mansions in the gardens of Eden. This is the greatest triumph (victory).
Allah promised us whoever built a mosque for allah, allah will reward him a house in the paradise. And now is your chance for people looking for a house in JANNAH.
