Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Fiji Opens A New Mosque “Masjid Noor” In Vanua Levu.
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Fiji had the blessed opportunity to inaugurate a new mosque in Seaqaqa, Vanua Levu on the 12th of September 2014.
The Fiji Islands which is commonly known as the corner of the earth, was blessed with the introduction of Ahmadiyyat in the year 1961. From this time till now, the members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat Fiji have had the blessed opportunity to build mosques in their respective districts.
The Island of Vanua Levu is the second largest Island of the Fiji Group. By the Grace of Allah, this island already had 3 Jamaat Mosques and Mission Houses. The Seaqaqa Jamaat was established in 1989 but due to the unavailability of appropriate land, there was no mosque built.
By the Grace of Allah, and the kind prayers of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V (atba), a beautiful land area with a picturesque view was acquired for the purpose of building a mosque. Hazoor (atba) gave the name Masjid Noor for this mosque.
There is a non- ahmadi muslim school adjacent to the Noor Mosque, and there were some hindrances created by this organization. By the Grace of Almighty Allah, the Merciful and his divine help, all problems were solved.
The foundation of this mosque was laid by the then Amir & Missionary In Charge Fiji, Maulana Fazal Ullah Tariq Sahib on the 5th July 2014 followed by Juma Prayers.
Merely by the Grace Of Almighty Allah and the kind prayers of Our Beloved Khalifatul Masih (atba) the construction work progressed rapidly and a beautiful 53 feet by 35 feet mosque took shape in just a matter of 9 weeks. The Inauguration of this mosque was done by the District Commissioner Northern Region, Mr Alipate Bolalevu.
This inauguration ceremony was attended by more than 200 Jamaat members from all around Fiji and as well as guests from various Government Departments.
The total expense to build this mosque was about $120,000FJD.
