Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wabarakatuh!
Your organization -Muslim Community Center- Alhamdulillah is nearly 50 years old. We are very fortunate to have three wonderful facilities.
Similar to our own homes, our MCC facilities need to be expanded from time to time because of our growing congregation. At MCC-Elston, we recently started two Jumuah Salats because of overcrowding. Brothers and sisters are sometimes forced to perform Jumuah Salat in the shoe area and the hallway because of overcrowding.
MCC administration is extremely happy to announce that the City of Chicago has approved the mezzanine construction at MCC-Elston Masjid. The construction of the spacious mezzanine will reduce congestion and enhance the view for our growing congregation of sisters. The estimated cost for the mezzanine is $300,000. Please donate generously towards this wonderful opportunity of continuous charity (Sadqah Jaariah).
Prophet Muhammed (SAW) said: “Whoever builds a Masjid for the sake of Allah, (even if the donation is only sufficient to build something like a bird’s nest or smaller), Allah will build for the person a house in Jannah.” [Ibn Majah-Saheeh-738)
We need your help to raise funds as soon as possible to pay for this much needed physical improvement. lf each of us plays a part in this very important project by donating towards the construction of the mezzanine, we can very quickly start the construction work. This month, we are requesting you to donate a suggested minimum of only $300 towards the mezzanine construction. Checks can be made payable to Muslim Community Center and handed over at one of our two beautiful Masjids with mezzanine written in the memo/for. Alternatively, the check can be mailed to the MCC- ELSTON Masjid address. Please do not mail cash. Donations can also be made online on the Donate Now page.
Thank you for always being generous towards your MCC organization. If you have questions about this matter or need assistance in making donations, please contact the MCC office.
Jazakumullahu Khairun! May Allah reward you in the best of ways!
