We hope this message reaches you in the best of health and imaan .انشاء الله
As you may know, the Islamic Center of Medford-Coram (ICMC) has been serving the local community since الحمد لله 2004 . We would like to inform you that we are in urgent need of financial assistance.
Recently, we have made great progress by acquiring a building permit. This legally allows us to establish a fully functional facility so that we may fulfill the needs of an expanding Muslim community. The new building will serve these needs with: a courtyard; new classrooms; office space Janazah services; Salaat-ul-Jummah; Salaat-ul-Eidain and also by expanding the prayer area along with additional services انشاء الله.
The construction of the new building for the Masjid began during the blessed month of Ramadhan,1437 AH with the Ground Breaking Ceremony on July 1, 2016. This was followed by our annual fundraiser on July 31, 2016 which succeeded with your support and participation, الحمد لله ! The foundation was laid and the walls have been erected from the ground to an incredible height of 12’6” ماشاءالله.
However, in order to complete the construction of the Masjid, we still require your financial assistance. The total amount needed for the basement is $280,000. From this, $190,000 was paid to the contractor and $90,000 is needed for the basement roof. Furthermore, a grand total of $1.8 million is due to fund the construction of all the proposed facilities listed above, انشاء الله.
If desired, to see the progress we’ve made, you may visit on-site or go to the Masjid website. Donations can be made via personal or business checks, PayPal, direct deposit or on our website. All donations are tax deductible.
جزاك الله خيرا for your time and sincere consideration. May Allah (swt) continue to bless you and your families and allow our Islamic center to become a beacon of goodness for our community, Ameen.
