Help To build Masjid insh allah
General Information: Past, Present and Future of the Muslims in Dumaguete City

In Dumaguete, the Muslims are considered a minority. This population is composed of converts and businessmen who have migrated from Mindanao, foreign countries and other places which only compromised a few percent of the city’s total. Despite the lack in number and the difference of beliefs from the peer, their faith still remains strong and thus they strive to live through and spread the teaching of Islam, one step at a time and Alhamdulillah they were able to go through all of that.

In the late 80s, there were few who embraced Islam. But on the arrival of a young ustadz, these numbers began to slowly grow. First, they temporarily utilized a fellow Muslim’s home and considered it a mosque. During the late 90s, they rented a simple location and started building made from triplex a place for prayer. This also did not last long since the rent was not prolonged. During those times there were no educational programs for the children such as reading Qur’an or developing basic Islamic knowledge.


Presently, we are renting a lot for the masjid, which measures 7 x7 m and is made from a triplex, and the rent was said not to be extended anymore. The number of Muslims keep increasing nearly every month and has now reached approximately 175, which is majorly composed of muallaf (converts), along with the original muslims within the city and the muslim students who study in the city’s universities.

Alhamdulillah, since the establishment of this Islamic organization last March of 2012, reading of the Qur’an are regularly taught to the little kids, teenagers and some adults.

Our current problem relies on the impracticality and lack of space our mosque provides to accommodate the current jama’ah during religious rites such as shalat jum’at, Eidl Fitri, Eidl Adha and other practices. If the owner decides to forfeit the rented space we have no prepared location for transfer in order to perform these rites.

The photos below portray religious acts as follows:

Shalat tarawih on the month of Ramadhan 2012 in our humble mosque. The area within the mosque is just enough for the jama’ah.

Alhamdulillah, with the help of the governor of Negros Oriental, we were able to utilize a Sports Complex for performing salat during the Eidl Fitr 2012. (Our current mosque could not accommodate the total number of jama’ah.

Weekly madrasah for the young children and teenagers at a temporary location vacant store for lease beside the mosque.


The Muslim community in Dumaguete desperately needs a permanent mosque – a center for da’wah, and a facility for religious practices – which is of great quality, presentable, and is able to accommodate the whole jama’ah during religious rites, Insya Allah.
