!!! CONSTRUCTION OF PHASE 1 ISLAMIC SCHOOL, YOUTH & COMMUNITY CENTER BUILDING IN FULL SWING - Stage 1, Building Shell Almost Complete !!!

Alhamdulillah, construction of the Shell for ICM’s Phase 1 ‘Islamic School, Youth, & Community Center’ building is almost complete. With the mercy and blessings of Allah (SWT), your generous contributions have fully covered the funding for the Shell stage.


Our next challenge is to finish the interior in the shortest possible time so that we can start using the building.


Please keep the following in mind:

  • Construction work must continue to keep our permit active and open – this is required
  • We need between $3 to $3.5 Million to finish the interior
  • About $2 Million are needed to have the contractor continue with all planned work without stopping or delaying the tasks

Please be on the look out for information on two opportunities to help fast-track the completion of building interior:

  • “100 for $20K” campaign to drive the effort to raise $2M. If 100 individuals or families can commit $20,000 each as donation or as Qard Hasan then we raise $2M in the quickest possible time!
  • Saturday March 24, Spring Fundraising Dinner

Brothers & Sisters, the approx. 45,000+ sq-ft Islamic School, Youth, and Community Center building will not only provide us with much needed space for large prayer services (Jummah & Eid salah) but will also add new and well commissioned facilities for educational, athletic, and social activities. Note that our goal is to obtain approval for a full time elementary level school also. The building will be built in two stages. First stage of the contract is for constructing the “shell” – everything structural and complete building from the outside. Second stage of the contract will start finishing the interior spaces ending in use and occupancy permit. First stage is planned to be finished June/July 2017, insha Allah. With the construction in full swing, we now need to make sure that we raise funds faster than ever to continue meeting our payments schedule as well as continuing work into the finishing stage without any stoppage insha Allah. Every dua' and every dollar counts. Please take a moment to make a quick donation by clicking on this link: https://www.icomd.org/app/cc/ccp_fundsselection.asp.

Please click on this link ICM-Master-Plan-Road-Map to have a quick and user-friendly view of the ICM Master Plan Implementation Road Map.

Implementing our Master Plan in phases provides us with the ability to add Phase-1 building without demolishing any of the existing buildings. Insha Allah, Phase-2 will see a new Masjid constructed that will require us to demolish all existing buildings. Having Phase-1 building available at that time will give us the required space to continue our operations without interruption.
