Housing Situation

As for the housing situation for families, that differs depending on what you are looking for. Presently, houses are going for between $5,000 and $10,000.

Those who are poorer usually build there own houses on land that is cheaper on the mountain or even build on top of someone else’s house. Some people are given houses for free when one opens up on Ash-Sheikh Muqbil’s land which he made waqf for the students of knowledge. I know of two families from the west that have been given houses for free.

The houses are mostly made of mud bricks ,while some choose to build with cynder block. The houses have running water and some areas have electricity for a couple of hours at night time.

The cost of living here is cheap. A small family can easily get by on $100 a month. The cost of living varies depending on your lifestyle. The student of knowledge should spend his money wisely so he will be able to focus more on studying.

Dammaaj is not the cleanest place in the world.
