Announcements - President's Message
Dear Brothers and Sisters of IQRA Masjid,
We wish for you and your family a successful and rewarding Ramadan. May Allah continued to bestow Peace, Blessings, Health and Barakha upon our families and communities.
You are all cordially invited to IQRA Masjid's Ramadan 2019 Iftars and Prayer Services. All are Welcome to open your Fast with our community.
If you would like to sponsor or host an Iftar and or prepare an Iftar ( sponsoring a meal for the opening of the fast ), please contact Imam Ali at ( 917 ) 615 – 5311 or Imam Mehmet ( 917 ) 683-0042.
We also want to acknowledge and thank you for your continued support and commitments to IQRA Masjid. Your generous donations and sacrifices built the foundations of the Masjid and as a result, we have a thriving Islamic-based community.
As some of you may have heard, our landlord will not be extending our lease for the first time in almost 23 years. He has given us until August 31st, 2019 to vacate the premises and he is also requesting this from other tenants as well. The landlord is looking to redevelop the property.
Please be informed that our President, brother Arshad has hired a lawyer to represent our community and have been faithfully negotiating with the landlord in our relocation efforts. All community services are expected to continue - full Ramadan services, Iftars and Terivhe Prayers, the daily five prayers led by one of our imams, and Friday Jumma Prayers will continue without interruptions. Please be advised that any panic or concerns are not warranted because negotiations are ongoing and contingency plans are in full effect.
Part of your legacy, your good deeds, and actions that you will take with you in the afterlife is ingrained and embedded in the establishment of this Masjid. As graduate students, upcoming professionals or starting business owners, you all had a hand in building the IQRA community. Our personal sacrifices, our hopes, and dreams of building a Muslim community for ourselves and our children must be continued into the next generation.
Again, contingency plans and relocation efforts are in full effect with no interruption in community services. Brother Arshad is navigating and negotiating a best-case scenario and has the full support of the board of trustees.
Although we are somewhat financially stable, like most households, we are one major predicament or upheaval away from not being able to pay our bills. Our relocation efforts will be an expensive one. We humbly ask that you continue to support IQRA with your generous donations. Your kindness will help solidify and strengthen our finances when we relocate and build our new place of worship. There will be approximately 30,000 dollars cost to refurbish and rebuild masjid friendly environment conducive for prayers and education – an adequate heating system and vents ducts, additional plumbing for wudu area, electrical for air conditioning, sheetrock, materials for walls and ceiling panels, new prayer rugs, building's roof material, and contractor costs.
Payments of your generous donations can be made in the form of a personal check. Please make your checks payable to “ IQRA Masjid “ and mail it to the following reliable address ( please do not send to 1885 address because we will be relocating ) where a trustee will personally oversee the collection process :
