Have a Blessed Eid
May Allah (SWT) accept your Ibada, deeds, and charity from Ramadan, may He remove all your sins through fasting, and night prayers, and may He increase you in God-consciousness.
I want to thank all of you for your genereous donations over this blessed month of Ramadan. Below is a summary of all donations:
Masjid Operations: $6746
Zakat Al-Mal: $4015
Zakat Al-Fitr: $790
Both Zakat funds get distributed to those in desperate need and struggling to get back on their feet and thrive.
As you can see, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are way short of our goals to cover our yearly expenses for the Masjid and to finish our projects, such parking lot, cemetery, landscaping...etc We will work to collect the rest of the budget through out the rest of the year. Please continue to generously donate and contribute to your Masjid.
May He make this Eid a blessed day filled with joy, happiness, eating, drinking, and above all, remembrance of Him. Ameen
