Many Muslims, mostly new immigrants, live on the southwest side of Maryland. Back in September 2004 we rented a 7,000 square foot store-front and established a mosque. Now more than 500 people pray each Friday and almost 150 children attend the after school and Quranic classes.
Four years after opening, in August 2008, Allah (SWT) blessed us with the purchase of approximately 10 acres of land for about $800,000, which we have completely paid for. On this land we are building a permanent home for our masjid, designed with a 5,000 square foot Masjid on the first floor and an Islamic School on the 10,000 square foot second floor. Today, nearly four millions dollars have been spent to achieve this milestone.
