The Midnight Sun Masjid also known as "the Masjid at the top of the world". It's the world’s northernmost masjid (mosque). Building a masjid in the Arctic , however, is far more complicated than it is anywhere else. The scarcity of skilled labour and material makes the cost of such a project skyrocket and impossible for a small Muslim community of about 100 people.
The Zubaidah Tallab Foundation, a Manitoba-based Islamic charity, stepped in and raised funds to build the mosque. The Zubaidah Tallab Foundation came up with a plan Build the masjid and ship it 4,200 kilometers away to Inuvik, this was the most economical way of getting the masjid built. The entire project cost about $300,000.
Part of the masjids journey was going to be on roads (2400km) and part on water (1800 km), in a 3-week journey...the journey in 2010 from the prairie city of Winnipeg in the province of Manitoba to Inuvik, the most northern town in Canada’s Arctic.
The Inuvik masjid is a stellar example of what can be accomplished by unity, hard work and faith in Allah....
If people can manage to build a masjid in the Arctic , then everything for the sake of Allah is possible.
