We are pleased to inform you that we already build the 2nd floor above our main floor because of the lack of sufficient accommodation for Friday prayers and Islamic education. At present, about one thousand five hundred people can pray at a time at this mosque now. This is an appeal to all Muslim brothers and sisters to donate generously towards the building of Baitul Mukarram Masjid and to finish the inside and outside projects.
We need to change all the 5 windows and doors, you can see on the pictures from top to bottom. It will cost $100,000.00. 75% Construction is done. Now we need your help to finish paying off the loan of $166,000.00. Allhamdulilah, we paid back Korze Hasana loan of $46,000.00.

After a very thorough planning process on September 18th, 2010 Baitul Mukarram Masjid started an exceptional Hifz class program. This Hifz class runs only on weekends and official school breaks (i.e. spring, summer, and winter breaks). Students of this program attend public schools and are admitted based on academic merit. All admitted students thus far have on average a 4.00 GPA at their respective schools. We started this program with just two students and have now grown to have thirty eight students. In the almost 9 years since the inception of this program, fourteen students have graduated. We urge you to continue to support this unique program for our youth.
Baitul Mukarram Masjid has recently purchased the adjacent complex and parking lot to fulfill the increasing need of parking. The Masjid had only 18 parking spots to begin with. After purchasing the parking lot now the Masjid has 200 parking spots. The cost of this additional space was an immense $310,000.00. However, the parking lot needs further repair, for which the construction has already begun. We need your support urgently to cover these costs. Please donate generously to this noble cause.
Please come forward and help the Masjid with donations to complete the project! Please remember the hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) - “Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah then will build for him/her a house in paradise.”
