AlhamduAllah we received so much support from community members’ across the States and as of this morning, Friday October 5th, $31,000 was raised through the online facebook campaign and $20,000 through Al Sabeel donations. The lawyers worked around the clock with the private lender and AlhamduAllah as of this morning, our lawyers were able to prevent the foreclosure under the condition that we pay an immediate $19,000 to stop the foreclosure. However, we still need to finish the full payment of $120,000, and the lawyers fees.
In our previous post, we announced how the previous goal of $18,000 was met, and that today an announcement would come regarding the status of the Masjid with the loan. Unfortunately, the news isn't so great. We're now being required to pay the full amount due of $120,000, or the Masjid will be lost.
Jazak Allahu Khayran for your contributions for saving this Masjid. Alhamdullilah with your support the amount needed to prevent foreclosure was raised. May Allah reward those who both gave and those who shared the fundraising efforts.
