The first benefit of the mosque is achieving the blessings of Allah (Almighty God). This is a blessing that will be bestowed on all members of our community and the area of Hobsons Bay / Melbourne. It will also have the following practical benefits:
Providing a place of worship to the Muslim community in Hobsons Bay and accommodate for their religious needs. The existing facility at the corner of Mason St and Walker St has ran out of capacity a long time ago and is currently over congested where worshipers have to pray in the car park and in the street on numerous occasions.
The mosque will provides sufficient indoor prayer space for important days in the Muslim Calendar such as Friday and Eid prayers, hence a more quite environment for both Muslims Worshippers and other members of the community.
The mosque will provides the opportunity for holding Open Days which brings various members of our society together and improves understanding of each other; leading to a harmonic and peaceful society. The greater space and facilities associated with the mosque will accommodate for the requirements of such days.
