BEST INVESTMENT IN YOUR LIFE IS
INVEST IN YOUR LIFE AND GET REWARDED BY ALLAH EVEN AFTER YOU DIE
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatuh Allahey Wa Barakatuh!
Allah, the most merciful, the most gracious, has provided us with various opportunities to achieve eternal success and peace in this life and for the hereafter. One avenue to achieve this is by participating in Sadqa-e-Jariya program, the everlasting charity. “When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things Sadqa-e-Jariya, a knowledge which is beneficial, and a virtuous descendant who pray for him(for the deceased)” (Muslim)
In November 2003, we purchased a small land for $300K with the intention of building a Masjid. Unfortunately, construction was delayed due to not meeting Montgomery County building requirements. After a long struggle, hard work, and spending another $370K, finally in June 2013, we acquired the permits to commence our long awaited project. Our goal inshaAllah is to complete the project by June 2014. For more details visit our ISG website at www.isgtown.org
The overall project cost is approximately $1.7 – $1.9 million. By the grace of Allah and the generous contributions made by the community, the construction of phase one is progressing splendidly, where we are spending the $850K collected over past few years. However, the funds are lagging to commence phase two of the project. If this prolongs, the project will cease to continue by the end of December. In order to keep this project on schedule, we need to raise another $850,000.
As we all know building a Masjid is considered as an act of Sadqa-e-Jariya. As Prophet Muhammad (Salla-Allahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) mentioned: “Whoever builds a Masjid for the sake of Allah, Allah will build for them a Palace in Paradise.”
Here is the golden opportunity given by Allah SWT for you to sponsor prayer spots, also known as musallah. We kindly recommend you donate $2,000 per spot. This is only a small amount to pay to gain big rewards for the Hereafter. Imagine the rewards you will be gaining for all the people who will be praying 5 times a day and 365 days a year on the musallah that you sponsored.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) mentioned “The upper hand is better than the lower hand (i.e. he who gives in charity is better than him who takes it).” Be a giver; please help us build this House of Allah in Germantown. Without the support of the community, there may not be a Masjid in where we can gather, strengthen our faith, and avoid the temptations offered by modern society.
Thank you for considering our request to join our program and look forward for your generous contribution towards this noble cause. For each musallah spot you sponsor, you will get a certificate with your name and number of the spot. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan,
