Masjid-Al-Hayy

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

have you guys seen this majid? According to many people in mosque a guy spent $23+ million dollars on this mosque and on inauguration he spent $350K on fireworks only. On friday everyone was talking about this and how this guy brought us (shias) in limelight and how everyone is talking about this shia mosque blah blah. 

Don't you think it's an israaf?

It is Israaf, He should have built a good mosque and opened an organization to guide people by making council and assigning a committee through the help of Marajas. 

I was arguing with a person on this and he said oh you don't know he donates so much money and this is between him and Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى, but it doesn't make sense to me. Giving donations doesn;t mean that you could go and spend as much money as you want. I know he built the mosque but to me he could have donated like 20 million to poor orphans in iraq or help poor people and he could have built a beautiful mosque in $3 million.

No doubt this is Israaf. A man with that wealth could have spent it on the poor, or most importantly built many shia mosques in third world countries and rural areas to ease difficulties for Shias. For many Shias living in southern states and less wealthier countries, I know families that go on a 2 hour drive just to go to the mosque in Muharram.

The $350K he spent on fireworks, he could have used it to build a shelter for homeless muslims. I am sure there must be some homeless shias in US. All the Robin hoods and people running charities keep bothering people like me but I bet they are not able to receive a penny from wealthy people like him.

And tell me honestly how many shia do come to congregational prayer everyday? 5, 6 or may be 10?

So then its a waste to put gold on the mosques of the Imams graves? Cuz we could just spend it on the poor?  And is it a waste to buy good clothing when crappy clothing will do the job?  Or a good car? Wrong.  Israaf is nothing but 'misplacing' something.  And purely the idea of having a big beautiful mosque like a palace is not necessarily misplacing even if not that many people join the congretions there.
