Dear Friends: Assalamu Alaikum
Alhamdu Lillah! The end is in sight of the completion of the new Cary Masjid, under construction for the last ten years. We had prayed and hoped to move-in by the Ramadhan of 2019. Unfortunately, a suspicious fire in November 2018 had a setback, both financially and completion – $150,000 financial loss, and six months delay in schedule.
Still, we believe that we should make a run to partially move-in by the month of Ramadhan – this year. An urgent reason for this drive is safety and security. With the backdrop of the New Zealand massacre and the suspicious fire at the Cary masjid, we are very concerned about the safety of our congregation. The current rented facility has a shared parking lot open to everyone. It is impossible to protect from serious terrorist attack from undesirable people. We have elaborate protection system at the new masjid – and Insha Allah it would be a very safe facility. With your generous help, we are planning to hold our next annual fundraising dinner on April 20, 2019 at 5:30 PM (sharp) at the new masjid banquet hall. Also, we intend to be ready to do the Taraweeh prayers there too.
We humbly request our well-wishers to actively promote this important fundraising event, spread the word to your friends. Please, block the date and commit to attend the event. May Allah reward you for your effort and commitment.
