Rescue Bosnian Community's Mosque


After Hurricane Harvey struck the Texan outposts of the Mexican bush, the flood it brought with it caused the biggest damage in America's 4th largest city, Houston. There is a small Bosnian community here, which, despite of the lack of material resources, successfully manages to keep flourishing with the help of its devoted members. With the tremendous efforts and sacrifices of our valuable members, in these ten years since the congregation has existed, we have succeeded in making a beautiful mosque where we come to worship and a home for our imam.

This summer we were especially joyful because we had a new imam that we brought from overseas with his wife and three little children before Ramadan, our holy month of fasting. Quickly, our community gathered donations to provide our imam a car and money to feed his family. With the various things we helped gather the family started to live a life with a unique and united community. Everything was the best and just as they were settling down, before Eid came a hurricane with the most prevalent floods in the last 1000 years and caused damage we hope to fix. Our beautiful mosque is totally flooded, and sadly the imam’s home.

When the water is withdrawn, there is much to be done on both facilities, including a car that is completely flooded.

According to expert estimates, in order to remedy the damage caused by the flood, at least 120,000 American dollars are needed. My community in Houston is very small, so it is almost impossible to get such a tremendous amount to recover our mosque .


We pray to all brothers and sisters who believe in The God who want to help, to respond to our call, even with a minimum donation.

Please share this call on your social media, so our story reaches every potential donor of funds.


May the Lord of the Worlds give you every barakah, health, and happiness.

Posle naleta uragana Harwey’a  koji je, dosavsi  sa meksickog zaljeva udario priobalske krajeve Teksasa, poplava je bila ta koja je izazvala najvecu stetu u ovom, cetvrtom po velicini gradu u Americi, Hjustonu. Ovde zivi jedna mala bosanska zajednica koja i pored nedostatka materijalnih sredstava, uspjesno uspijeva da odrzi dzemat. Uz ogromne napore i zrtve nasih vrijednih dzematlija, u ovih desetak godina otkako postoji dzemat, uspijela se napraviti dzamija i mobilna kuca za imama. Ovog ljeta dzematlije su bili posebno radosni jer im je tacno pred Ramazan stigao novi imam sa hanumom i troje malo djece. Ubrzo su se dzematlije organizovale prikupljajuci sredstva za naseg efendiju kako bi mogao nesmetano obavljati imamske duznosti. Auto i ostale kucne potrepstine su donirane, pa je dzemat ponovo poceo da zivi zivotom slozne i jedinstvene zajednice. Sve je teklo u najboljem redu i onda, kada smo se trebali najvise radovati, pred bajram je stigao uragan sa najzescim poplavama u posljednjih 1000 godina. Nasa ljepotica je totalno poplavljena, sto je slucaj i sa kucom imama.

Kada se voda povuce, imace puno toga da se uradi na oba objekta ukljucujuci i auto koje je potpuno unisteno poplavom.

Po procjeni strucnih lica, da bi se sanirala steta koji je nanijela poplava, potrebno je najmanje 120,000 americkih dolara. Zelim napomenuti da je zajednica u Hjustonu vrlo mala, tako da je gotovo nemoguce da se sa oko 80’ak  clanova koliko dzemat trenutno broji obnovi dzamija i sanira steta koja je nacinjena.

Molimo svu bracu i sestre u vjeri, koji zele da zarade sevape ovog kisnog kurban-bajrama da se odazovu ovom nasem pozivu, makar i minimalnom donacijom. Molimo sve one koji zele da ih Dragu Allah pogleda okom Milosti i Oprosta na Danu u kojem ce se pokazati na vidjelo covjekova djela, da doniraju koliko mogu kako bi se Allahovo (DZ.S) Ime culo u  jednom od najjuznijih gradova Sjedinjenih Drzava.

Jos bi zamolili da podijelite ovo na svojim stranicama socijalnih medija, kako bi informacija stigla do svakog potencijalnog darivaoca sredstava. Neka vam Gospodar svjetova podari svaki hair, zdravlje i bericet.
