The European Mosque Building and Support Association e. V.(EMUG e.V.) was founded in 1985. The mission of the association is to help Muslim communities with acquiring and maintain mosques to promote the existence of Muslim life in Europe.
We are helping to lay the foundations for Islamic community life by helping Islamic religious communities develop mosque buildings and educational institutions so that they can carry out their statutory religious, cultural and social activities.
In this sense, within the last 24 years, EMUG e.V. has acquired more than 300 buildings in Germany and Europe, which almost exclusively serve as a mosque and / or cultural and educational center.
The main activities are the provision of intellectual and financial resources, as well as the protection and rehabilitation of mosque buildings.
There is a strong interest among Muslims for the exercise of religious duties to build representative buildings. Therefore, we promote Islamic art and culture in the field of mosque architecture in both the exterior and interior design.
Our team at the headquarters consists of 20 people. They come from the fields of architecture, real estate, office management and business administration, as well as project managers from the field of civil engineering and renovation.
The financing of our objects is made possible by donations of our members and donations by members of the IGMG. In addition to international donation calls, there are numerous project donations from Muslims in the respective region.
We are currently working on 20 new construction projects in which we are directly and indirectly involved and support and accompany the mosque communities in the planning, the approval process, the execution of the shell and the fine work, as well as the building inspection.
