Help the Faith Center!
This is a cause that is very dear to my heart. The Woodbridge Faith Center is truly a place where you are accepted as you are and helped whenever you need it most. It's not a politically or culturally charged faith center like most other mosques. They don't shove their beliefs down your throat. It's not a conglomerate. It's not owned by anyone. It doesn't have 100 locations and tons of PR opportunity. It's literally just a simple place anyone can go to practice their faith- wherever someone is on that spectrum. The Center offers free Quran classes every single day of the week and weekly lectures open to the public. I've personally never felt more welcomed in all my life. The person who runs the center is a true man of God. He knows everyone by their first name. He makes sure to make time for everyone whether it's an in person meeting or a phone call. He goes above and beyond for everyone in a way that humbles you. The reason I started this fundraiser is two fold 1. raise money to help the masjid in their goal to expand from 800sf to 1600sf. 2. raise awareness of the masjid itself. If you live in the DC metro area I insist that you visit the masjid at least once. You never know what you could take away! So I humbly ask that in these crazy, racist, mean spirited time we support places like this where we can come together as a community and help build each other up. Please even if it's just change it would mean a lot to me if everyone could contribute something to this cause.
