A mosque comes as one of the best places and if you talk about an act of building a mosque, it can be quoted as the most blessed and virtuous acts ever. It comes as one of the most highly commendable acts of thanking the Allah Almighty for all his blessings in the form of human lives around. Prophet Mohammad S.A.W has once said “Whosoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah will build for him likewise in Paradise (Sahih Bukhari)” and if we look at its meaning in another narration. It states “The most beloved of places to Allah is the mosque and the most detested of places is the market place(Sahih Muslim)”
Malik Riaz who is the founder and chairman of the famous Bahria Town whilst being one of the most famous real estate developers around the globe, has done exactly that to bestow his thanks to the almighty Allah. All of his social and charitable acts truly define his character and strong desire to please the almighty Allah and bring justice to all his blessings on him since and his family ever since his childhood. It is just his motto to seek the countenance of God that has motivated him to construct great mosques all across the country.

It’s a rare piece of art which comes along with a stunning fusion of religion and culture. Moreover, the same mosque has been built within a short span of just 4 years with a budget of 4 Billion rupees.
