PLEASE HELP MOSQUE FROM CLOSING ITS DOORS!

Dear friends,

The Islamic Society of Northwest Suburbs (ISNS) needs your help.

The ISNS mosque is located in Rolling Meadows, IL, USA. We are one of the first mosques setup in the Chicagoland area and has been serving the community since 1984.

The permit to operate the masjid in our current facility is based upon a leased area for the parking lot.

The owner of the leased area is now selling the property. If we do not acquire that property, ISNS stands to lose the parking lot. Without the parking lot, we will lose the permit to operate a masjid and will be forced to move out.

To purchase the parking lot and the adjacent land, we need to raise $2.6M in the next 120 days.

Please donate generously to save the mosque from closing its doors.

Thank you.
