Alhamdulellah, construction work has been resumed. Currently, the work is running on the plumbing of the new rest rooms as well as the new kitchen in the north side of Masjid. Entire extension work insha’Allah can be completed by May next year. To achieve this let’s do our part, donate generously.
The extension project has been a dream of our community for 24 years. Construction began in October 2011 and has been continuing since then. With Allah’s grace first and then with your great support and the hard work of our fundraising team, we were able to collect $270,000 so far. This money will be used towards finishing the remaining outside phase. Current costs to be paid towards that are $37,360. In addition to this, we will be ordering the second floor frame and finishing the second floor, which costs $202,000. The total amount needed is $37,360 + $202,000 = $239,360. The amount collected as of this moment, January 30th, 2015 is almost $270,000. May Allah bless and have mercy upon everyone participating in this noble project.
