We hope this message finds you in the best of health and the highest of Iman. Nearly four years ago Masjid Tawheed and it's community went through a hardship that we are still enduring until today. The Masjid caught an electrical fire that left it in a state where it could not be used. This was a terrible shock to the community but after accepting what happened, an emergency fundraising committee was made to help rebuild the Masjid. The volunteers and administration went to many different masaajid and Islamic centers to help raise money for the rebuilding. In the meantime we had to help recover the community that was impacted. We started having Jumuah at a local room then purchased a tent in our parking lot. Later on, we furnished our garage to serve as a temporary place of prayer. Currently we pray and have our Jumuah services in this garage. We intend to stay here until we are able to collect funds to rebuild our Masjid.
During these four years we have raised about 2 million dollars for the rebuilding. The total cost of the rebuilding is about 4 million dollars which leaves us 2 million still to collect. Although the efforts started out very strongly they slowed down after some time. In order to revive the generosity of our community and to help rebuild our Masjid, we are hosting our very first fundraising dinner!
This dinner will be held at Masjid Al Wali Community center located at 9 Olsen Avenue, Edison NJ. The event will start at 6pm inshaallah.
During this event we have the pleasure of hosting Shaykh Yasir Birjas, a valedictorian from Madinah University, a scholar who has taught all around the world and currently resides in Dallas Texas. He teaches for Almaghrib and is known for his wonderful sessions on fiqh and Marriage.
We also have with us the world renowned recitor (Qari) of the Qur'an, Shaykh Nady Kishk.
And we also have Shaykh Alaa, a scholar who has been a member of Masjid Al Tawheed for the past twenty years. He helped with the religious development of the community and raised money to help the masjid financially.
Lastly we have our guest of Honor and the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Masjid Tawheed, Dr. Salah As Sawwy. He is considered by many as the most knowledgeable scholar in North America and leads the Assembly of Muslim Jurists in America as well as Mishkah University, an online Islamic University that helps students all across the globe to gain their Islamic knowledge in an academic manner.
Join us on this beautiful night to help raise funds to complete Masjid Al Tawheed. We have waited very long to rebuild our Masjid and we hope you will join us in this endeavor to bring back one of the biggest Islamic centers in New Jersey.
"He who builds a Masjid for Allah, Allah will build for them a house like it, in paradise."
Let us build our house in paradise. May Allah accept from all of us.
