By the Grace of Allah Most High, Sacred Learning is in the process of establishing a masjid in a northern suburb of Chicago (Lincolnwood). The building will be used for daily salah, Quran Hifz classes, and adult education programs, and it will also serve as a location where people from across the country can come to develop themselves spiritually. The total cost of the project is a little over 1 million dollars. The land has already been purchased and we are starting the construction phase soon, insha’Allah.
There are numerous blessings associated with such projects, including the promise of a house in Paradise for those who build a house for Allah in this world. Hence, we would like to have your name on our list of donors. We realize that each of you have many demands on your finances. However, if you give with an open heart, Allah Most High will provide an abundant return in this life and the next.
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “On the Day of Judgement, a person’s sadaqah will become his shade” and “Spend in charity and do not keep count, otherwise Allah will keep count in giving you provisions.”
The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) said on the authority of Uthman bin Affan (radiallahu anhu): “Whoever builds a Masjid seeking the Face of Allah, Allah will build for him something similar to it in Paradise” (Bukhari and Muslim).
