!!! CONSTRUCTION OF PHASE 1 ISLAMIC SCHOOL, YOUTH & COMMUNITY CENTER BUILDING IN FULL SWING - Update as of September 2017 !!!

After scheduling delays related to roof steel beams installer that pushed the work out by several weeks, Alhamdulillah we are back on track. The work commenced about a week ago with installation in full swing on 9/19. All work related to completing the Shell is now scheduled to finish in November. 

Link to some pics of the roof-steel installation: Roof-Steel-Work

Our upcoming challenge is continue into the "Finishing" stage, which will begin work on finishing the interior spaces for use and occupancy.

Here is an awe inspiring drone video of the construction as of May 2017:

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.

Masjid Programs

ICM Lecture Series

Adab and Akhlaaq

Instructor: Br. Azzam Abdelkarim

Starting: Jan. 20, 2018 and will continue every other week iA.

We will examine the Hadith to learn about the Islamic  rules of etiquette and an ethical code involving every aspect of life; such as good manners, courtesy, respect and appropriateness, covering acts such as entering or exiting a washroom, posture when sitting, and cleansing oneself. It is reported that the Prophet (S) would say "The best amongst you are those who have the best manners and character." Insha'Allah we hope to learn from the Prophetic examples, the Sunnah, the type of manners and character required of us, and also how to better refine and implement good character and manners in our daily lives. In the past classes we do have charged operations cost of 25 dollars per student just to cover the expense for use of the class.
