Assalam Wa Laikum. May Allah bless you all and your families in this holy month of Ramadan.
About 10 years ago the community had a vision, to expand the mosque due to the rapid growth of the community. There was also a need to upgrade the facilities to entice the youth to be more involved.
Due to financial barriers we have not been abe to fulfill our vison as of date.
For the past few months, we've made immense progress but have alot more to do. As of date, we have not been able to hold prayers due to ongoing construction. It's been a burden on the community but we are planning to get enough work complete to open the doors. This will get us to our short term goal.
Today I ask everyone to donate generously and help us achieve our goal as the mosque has work ahead of it.
Hadith: The Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alayhi wa salaam) said:
"Whoever builds a mosque with the intention of seeking Allah's pleasure, Allah will build for him a place in Paradise."
Sahih Al-Bukhai, Hadith #441 | Vol.1 | Agreed Upon
I will soon update with pictures of the progress made thus far. Please visit www.ifnj.org for additional information.
Jazak'AllahuKhair and may Allah (swt) accept your generosity.
