EPISODE 5 of 20 – The Great Mosque of Granada – #ATileForSeville 2017
The Great Mosque of Granada is the first mosque built in Granada after 600 years of the expulsion of the Muslims from the city, and it was built by Spanish converts. It has been open for 14 years now and since then its been a shining light of Islam in this wonderful city.
The project of the Mosque, Islamic Cultural Centre and Awqaf of Seville is based on the incredible success and precedent of this wonderful building.
A Tile For Seville is a worldwide crowdfunding campaign. An initiative from the Malaysia’s NGO ´Ukhwah for Ummah´ (U4U), in collaboration with ´Fundación Mezquita de Sevilla´ & ´Aksi Cepat Tanggap´ (ACT), to raise funds and awareness for the building a Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre in Seville, Spain.
In 2016 U4U gathered four celebrities from Malaysia to feature on the first ATFS campaign, which was a great success and had a very positive impact globally. In 2017 U4U developed the second campaign, this time with 7 icons, from Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore.
3 Nations, 7 Icons & 1 Mission.
With this campaign we hope to gather and unite Muslim hearts from all over the world to support us in this noble cause. And to show through the eyes and amazing hearts of these icons, the need and desire of the Muslims of Seville for a dignified place of worship, action, and service.
In this campaign we are blessed and honoured to have the presence and support of these amazing 7 ICONS; Oki Setiana Dewi & Dewi Sandra, from Indonesia; Faizal Tahir, Irma Hasmie, Suffian Amrin & Farah Asyikin, from Indonesia and Elfaeza Ul Haq, from Singapore!!
This campaign is one of the many initiatives and actions that are being taken for this end. The project is open for Governments, institutions, NGO or individuals to join in and help us make this project a reality!
