Message from the President

Salam dear brothers and sisters,

I wish you and your family a Bright, Healthy and Prosperous New Year 2022.

2021 was a special year in the history of this community. Together, we were able to accomplish quite a bit with the help of Allah, phenomenal volunteers, distinguished board and exceptional community members. Below are few of our accomplishments from last year:

  • Secure initial funds to kickstart construction thanks to your generous contributions.
  • Commence the masjid construction.
  • Setup COVID-19 vaccination camps at the masjid.
  • Distributed over $100,000 to the needy families.
  • Setup alternate arrangement for Jumah & daily prayers in the trailers.
  • Distributed over 200 food gift cards to the needy families.
  • Perform Eid celebrations and picnics with social distancing.

I’m very excited for 2022 as we march towards the objectives of completing the construction and resuming regular religious, education, and social activities in the new house of Allah. We look forward to everyone’s support and participation.

May Allah Bless You All.
