Assalaamu Alaikum !

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


Sahih Bukhari: Patience

Narated by Kab (Bukhari)

The Prophet said, "The example of a believer is that of a fresh tender plant, which the wind bends lt sometimes and some other time it makes it straight. And the example of a hypocrite is that of a pine tree which keeps straight till once it is uprooted suddenly.

!!! Building Shell Completed - Stepwise Interior Finishing in Progress !!!

  • 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 $3.5-4$M
  • ICM has already raised a little over $1.3M 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 as a stop-gap approach!
  • 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 $1.3M already raised, we need $1.7M to go full-scope!


  • Recently, ICM launched a drive to collect 100 Qard Hasan (good loan) for $20K each to raise $2M of the required $3M
    • Alhamdulillah, we have raised a little over $675K through this drive
  • 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! All loans are properly documented, signed, and large loans can be provided with personal guarantees also.

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.

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.
