Question: Assalamu Alaykum I would like to know if there are any rewards for doing the work of the Masjid, like vacuuming the carpets and washing the towels for the Wudhu Khana. Jazaakallah Khair
Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. As-salamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullahi wa-barakatuh.

Taking care of the Masjid is a praiseworthy act for which one will be rewarded. To take care of a Masjid and its affairs is a sign of strong and healthy Iman as is understood from the following adith: Abu Said Khudri Radi Allahu ‘anhu narrates that the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “When you see a person taking care of the Masjid then bear testimony to his Iman, for verily Allah Taala says, “Only those who believe in Allah and the Last Day frequent and take care of the Masjids of Allah.””

The following Hadith is narrated showing that a person who cleans the Masjid to the mere extent of removing a speck of dirt from it will definitely be rewarded for this act:

It is reported on the authority of Anas Radi Allahu ‘anhu that the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “The rewards of my Ummah were presented to me, to the extent that (the reward of) a speck of dirt a person removes from the Masjid (was also presented to me).” {Abu Dawud (126/1), al-Tirmii (178/5), Ibn Khuzaimah (271/2)}

Also, by caring for the Masjid, a person will be rewarded for carrying out the command of Nabi Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam as he has instructed in the following Hadith:

It is narrated that Aishah Radi Allahu ‘anha has mentioned: “The Messenger of Allah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam has commanded that Masjids should be built in the localities and they should be cleaned and perfumed.” {Ahmad (279/6), al-Tirmii (489/2), Abu Dawud (124/1)}


And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
