In modern times, it is quintessential for municipalities and governments to allocate their funds in the most optimal and effective way. Optimality implies the highest return on the investment. Nowadays, on the level of mosques, it is common to have more than one mosque serving the same area. Although the intentions are pure and sincere, the benefit of the charitable work is lost and distributed on two fronts that serve the same goal. This research article presents a new model for the optimization of mosque placements in a given area based on the need and demographic data. Once the need is satisfied, the construction of new mosques should be halted until a new need arises or there is an increase in the demographic data. As a result, this would allow the use of the money in other charitable goods, thus optimizing the use of the funds based on the required goals.
