On December 28, 2006, Dr Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, the spiritual leader of the Dawoodi Bohra community, opened the ceremonial golden lock to inaugurate the new mosque built by the community in Ajman, on Tuesday.
This masjid has been built at the land of the old Markaz where during Huzurala’s Safar in 1983 the Jamaat of Ajman had the Sharaf of Ziyafat. This is the same place where Aqa Maula Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (R.A) prayed the Shahadat of Imam Husain (AS) also prayed namaaz for taiseer umur al Mumineen during the 1410 Safar.
More than 1,000 community members and guests were present on the occasion. Later Dr Syedna led the Zohr prayers in the mosque.
Addressing the people, Dr Syedna quoted from the Holy Quran and the Sayings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and emphasised the rich rewards that Allah has ordained on those who build the House of Allah and the special role of a Masjid in a Muslim’s life.
He bestowed prayers and benedictions on the Ajman community and praised for the beautiful masjid.
He lauded the gesture of His Highness Shaikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, the Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ajman.
He also prayed for peace and tranquillity throughout the world.
He named this new masjid ‘Al Masjid al Hakimi’. This is the fourth masjid inaugurated by Dr Syedna in the UAE.
To facilitate the viewing of the live inaugural ceremony by thousands of men women and children of the community, special arrangements for live telecast were made with large screens at three community venues in Dubai and Sharjah.
Dr Syedna has dedicated his life to the building of mosques across the globe. It’s a life long mission and his era has seen many Islamic restoration works and the use of the Fatimi architecture in numerous projects throughout the world.
