Dear Respected Brothers/Sisters in Islam:
On behalf of myself and the Board of Trustees of Masjid:”Omar Ben Abdel-Aziz”, we are humbly seeking financial help for construction of a new Masjid. Our existing Masjid was registered since 1993. It was 5000 sq. ft. and 100*100 ft. Our Masjid is located in a neighborhood where there were prostitution and drugs and was considered as one of the worst neighborhoods. We were able to clean up the area significantly change the neighborhood to a much safer and family oriented environment. We have Islamic classes for both adult and children. In addition, we have Dawah programs regularly where there are several locals and international speakers to educate the Community. We also provide food to the Community. As a result, many non-Muslims embrace Islam.
As our Muslim Community is growing, our Masjid is not able to accommodate all of the congregants. We consistently have to move furniture and carpets to accommodate for various activities. Our primary focus is to help our young children and youths develop strong Islamic values in the way of Islam. Also to continue having Dawah programs on a wider scale so we can bring people to Islam and to feed the poor and needy. We want to establish a full time Madrassa with Hafiz courses and a school to keep the children indoor and not to be involved in drugs and alcohol.
We are hoping InshAllah that you would be able to contribute generously to our new project. May Allah bless and reward you immensely for your efforts in making a positive difference in the world and making our community a better place. We pray that Allah (SWT) will build for you all mansion in Jannatul Firdouse. Ameen!

Allah (Subana wa ta’ala) says in the Qur’an:
Those who spend their wealth I the cause of Allah, and do not follow up with gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
Give any amount to help our cause.
