Kongsberg Islamsk Kultursenter (Kongsberg Masjed)
[Org.nr. 889 941 332]
In the name of Allah! The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.
Kongsberg mosque’s primary focus is to offer salvation through the Qur’an and Sunnah by the commitment to deliver a non-profit organisation that will ensure the authentic understanding of Islam through the community.
In the wake of the media and unfavourable publicity against Islam, our community (our Ummah) and us as individuals are place further under scrutiny and test (fitna), therefore it has become now more important than ever to reflect on ourselves and re-assess the image of Islam we portray. It is much simpler to change yourselves, so please let’s not look at others and judge them, let’s look at ourselves first and make the necessary changes so that we may walk with dignity and be a word of encouragement to those who do not know Allah.
To propagate the word of Allah as it is stated in the Qur’an:
“Invite all to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious; for your Lord knows best who have strayed from His path, and He is The best aware of those who receive guidance.”
(Chapter “The Bee” 16 verse 125)
To achieve our goal, we shall focus on nuturing honesty, integrity and moral ethics, provide youth and adult conselling as well as delivering cultural and religious education.
Insha’allah, We will succeed by the grace of Allah.
As the population of this planet continues to stray further and further into disbelief, we must hold onto the rope of Salvation, educate ourselves, educate our family and try to be a better example to guide the human race back to salvation insha’allah.
The Quran states:
All together, hold fast the rope of Allah and be not divided among yourselves.
Remember Allah’s favours upon you when you were enemies; He united your hearts, so by His favour you became brothers;
You were at the brink of the fiery pit and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His revelations clear to you, so that you may be rightly guided.” (Chapter 3 Aali-Imraan (The family of Imraan) Verse 103)
