Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim.

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah!

We pray that you are in the best of health and imaan. MashaAllah, the doors of the Muslim Community Center have been welcoming people from all walks of life since 1969. For years this mosque has been a place where children, parents, elders, scholars, and many others have discovered their deen, understood their Lord, and praised Him and His Beloved Rasool. A countless number of us owe the foundations of our knowledge to its small classrooms where teachers with big hearts spent their Saturday and Sunday mornings. The majestic voice of Maulana Saleem still resonates in the hearts of many who witnessed the prayer hall come alive with Noor in the nights of Ramadan. The anecdotes are many; the blessings are countless. May Allah bless this house and protect it in every way.

In a recent visit to MCC, a dire situation came to light. The roof of this beautiful house of Allah is severely damaged. The roof has been patched many times but never properly repaired. The roof needs to be replaced wholesale. Due to the delays in repairing the roof, and the difficult winter that we have witnessed, the ceiling has also been damaged. If not repaired soon, further damage will occur.

To cover the cost of repairs to the roof and ceiling and provide MCC with a cushion for future critical maintenance, our simple goal is to have 100 people donate $500 a piece. Help us achieve this goal by donating yourself and passing this site along to your friends and family whose lives MCC may have touched in some way over the years.
