We believe by now you are convinced about ICM’s progress and its plans for the future. The next step for you is to take part in it. Here’s how you can contribute to this worthy cause:

1.  Make it a personal goal to contribute to this project. Ask Almighty Allah (SWT) for His help and blessings, keep this project in your thoughts, and inform others.

2.  Take every opportunity to donate whatever you can to the Master Plan Construction Fund. The estimated cost for the project is roughly $6 million to be completed by 2014. For the ground-breaking milestone, we need about $1.2 million by March 2010. Click on this link to donate online – Donate Online.

3.  Acquire burial sites at Al-Firdaus Memorial Gardens – an all Muslim cemetery. Money collected for each site sold is automatically applied to the Master Plan Construction Fund. Inform your family and friends and encourage them to acquire sites. Click on this link to purchase sites online – Donate Online.

4.  Join the Direct Debit program. Allocate monthly amount to your level of comfort and pleasing. Every dollar above and beyond the operational funds will go to the Master Plan Construction Fund. Click on this link – Direct Debit Form – to download and print the form.

5.  Join the Fundraising Committee and help identify ways and means to raise funds. Send email to the fundraising committee on how to join.

Brothers and Sisters, remember that no prayer, amount, and effort are too little to help this dream come true. All of us have to meet Allah (SWT) one day. If we complete this project for the pleasure of Allah, it will be a testimony of our faith, devotion, and dedication to Islam and Muslims. As long as ICM exists, as long as prayers are offered, learning of Qur’an and Sunnah continues, Dawah spreads, the needy among us are served, and beneficial services are provided to both Muslims and Non-Muslims in the area, it will insha Allah benefit our souls in the form of Sadaqah Jariyah or continuous charity.

But that’s not all; a completed ICM will be our greatest gift for generations to come. You will be part of raising new generations of Muslims who will be informed and balanced, who will have piety, wisdom, excellent character, and skills to benefit not only our community but the community at large. Let us make the completion of ICM Master Plan as one of our personal goals in life.

Jazakum Allah Khair for your time and attention.
