Allah says in Surat-Al-Baqarah “Those who spend their wealth [in Allah’s way] by night and day, secretly and publicly - they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.” There is a hadeeth that says: The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "The believer's shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” There is another hadeeth said by the Prophet(s) that states that “Every act of goodness is charity.”
My dear brothers and sisters, at this time, we ask for your kind support and generous contributions go directly to maintaining the day-to-day operations of the Masjid for the next few months. We estimate that we need to fundraise approximately $13,500 to maintain our monthly expenses during this closure. Any donation ($5 $10 $25 $50 $100 $500 $1000) is greatly appreciated! This Masjid is not funded by any outside sources except relies only on donations from the Muslim community members .
PLEASE HELP! No donation is too big or too small. Jazakallah Khair!
