Sacred Learning Masjid Project

Alhamdulillah, with your help and du’as, we were able to acquire the property adjacent to the masjid in December 2017. From January through April, we went through a series of 5 hearings with the Village to grant us approval to demolish the existing building and create a parking lot that will expand the number of parking spaces from 31 to 127. The demolition is underway and the plans for the new parking lot are under review. With your help, we hope to have the expanded parking ready for use by the time the masjid construction is complete, insha’Allah.
