Officially Opened! Dompet Dhuafa Attend Qur’an Camp Tahfidz Green Lido Islamic Boarding Schools


SUKABUMI, WEST JAVA — Historically, mosques have been the centre of the Muslim dawah movement. It was from the mosque that Islamic civilization was built to anchor the vision of spreading Islam rahmatan lil ‘alamin. Therefore, the role of mosques for Muslims is not only as a place of worship but also as a means of spreading Islamic syiar and educational facilities. Thus, the mosque can become one of the centres of community empowerment.

After being awaited for so many full moons, the first Masjid Pesantren Tahfidz Green Lido (PTGL) is finally active as a place of worship and education as of Tuesday (28/03/2023). PTGL Mosque is a mosque in the Green Lido Islamic Boarding School, Sukabumi. The Islamic Boarding Schools became the first productive waqf-based Islamic Boarding Schools built by Dompet Dhuafa.
