Spending Spree!

Talk about money well spent!

Frederic Kanoute, striker for Spanish side Sevilla has just spent $700,000 to buy his own masjid (mosque) in Spain.

It was actually going to be sold to another buyer, but alhumdulillah (all Praises belong to Allah), the Malian striker stepped in and has spent nearly one year’s salary on this purchase so that he and and fellow Muslims can keep on worshipping at this masjid.

May Allah give him the best recompense in both the worlds and may He give us all the Taufiq (Divine aid) to spend as much as we can in His Path.
