In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful



Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Hadith 218

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) quoted a person who will face severe punishment on Judgment day as saying: "I enjoined others to do good, but did not do it myself, and I forbade them to do evil, but did it myself."

!!! Building Shell Completed - Stepwise Interior Finishing in Progress  - Click HERE to watch a short video of the progress as of Sept. 2018 !!!

  • ICM started construction of its 45,000 Sq-Ft Islamic School Youth & Community Center building in 2016
  • First stage of construction required the building ‘shell' to be built, complete with all exterior doors and windows
    • This work has been completed and is fully funded!
  • Second Stage of construction requires interior finishing ending with issuance of ‘Use and Occupancy' permit
    • This work is in progress!
  • Based on the bids, total cost of the building is approx. $7.5M
    • With the ‘shell' stage completed, the projected interior finishing cost is $3.5-$4M
  • ICM has already raised about $1.5M toward interior finishing
    • While this amount is not enough to turn the General Contractor ON for full-scope interior finishing, ICM is putting these funds to use by moving forward with stepwise interior finishing!
  • Due to construction permit time constraints and a minimum of 4% yearly increase in construction costs, full-scope construction is the best answer to complete the building without forfeiting permit and assuming continuous cost increase!
  • This requires a minimum of $3M in hand; with $1.5M already raised, we need $1.7-$2M to go full-scope!


  • Recently, ICM launched a drive to collect 100 Qard Hasan of $20K each to raise $2M of the required $3M. Alhamdulillah, we have raised a little over $700K through this drive.
  • Note that Qard Hasan is a Good Loan (or Interest-Free Loan) that is extended to ICM for 3 or more years for the sole purpose of completing the new construction. The loan is documented in a contract prepared by the ICM's Legal Counsel and fully backed and approved by the ICM Board of Trustees. The contract is signed by all parties and is notorized. The loan is returned in full on the due date or when demanded by the lender (based on any hardship or need). Additional guarantees can also be arranged for large Qard Hasan amounts ($300K or more). The contract document can be obtained by emailing a request to the ICM Office Administrator Mohammed Aslam at
  • If we can collect another $1.5-$2M in the form of Qard Hasan for 5 or more years or a combination of Qard Hasan and donations then we can immediately start full-scope interior finishing!
  • ICM will also dedicate major sections of the building (e.g. gym and multipurpose hall) based on matching donations
  • Note that ICM's yearly net collections allow it to repay any loan within the agreed upon period.

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. With the building structure completed, we now need to raise the required funds to finish the interior in the shortest possible time. Every dua' and every dollar counts. Please take a moment to make a quick donation by clicking on this link:

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.
