Islam is the second largest religion in Malawi after Christianity; nearly all of Malawi’s Muslims adhere to Sunni Islam. According to the CIA Factbook, 12.8% of the country’s population is Muslim.
Recently, Muslim groups have engaged in missionary work in Malawi. Much of this is performed by the African Muslim Agency based in Angola. The Kuwait sponsored AMA has translated the Qur’an into Chichewa (Cinyanja), one of the official languages of Malawi, and has engaged in other missionary work in the country. All of the major cities in the country have mosques, and there are several Islamic schools.
Total Population: 13,000,000 (100%)
Muslim Population: 1,664,000 (12.80%)
DONATE A BRICK INITIATIVE PROPOSAL
If all Muslims in Malawi were to donate a brick, on a monthly basis, at a value of MK10.00
Total Value 1,664,000 x 10 = MK16,640,000. After just a year, it would generate a whooping MK199,680,000!
I am more than certain that, if that trend is sustained for say a period of three years, with such funds at our disposal, we will be able to build a first class Quran house with underground car parking, shops and a hall on ground floor, and a couple floors of office blocks for renting, without even stretching out a begging bowl.
This would be the source of generating income to sponsor other Islamic activities.
