Murtaza mentioned that mosques need a lot of water to meet everyday requirements, adding that the project is being expanded and will be a bigger model upon completion. He further shared that the rainwater collected would be used for washing and cleaning of the mosque, ablution, and bathing where ablution water would be preserved and collected for plants and grass in the park established in front of the mosque.

The chairman said that more than 400 worshipers perform ablution in the mosque on a daily basis while 1,000 to 1,500 worshipers come here for Friday prayers. “One man uses five to seven liters of water during ablution which can now be made usable instead of wasting it after treatment,” he added.
