Assalamulalaikum w.b,

One of the Prophet Muhammad's saying goes;
Whoever builds a mosque for the sake of Allah, Allah will build for him likewise in Paradise (Sahih Bukhari)

 With that in mind, and to assist the small, but growing number of Muslim population in Laos, particularly in Vientiane, Masjid Azhar was opened in the Chantaboury District on 10.10.1982 Sized at approximately 300 square metres,the mosque houses a communal prayingp room for both males and females, a community hall, a classroom, kitchen and office space.
Presently, the mosque serves over 270 people from over 70 families and the increasing number of Muslim tourists in Laos.
