Dear Community Members, Assalamu Alaikum,
Our masjid is trying some new ideas that can help our community members during this hard time. We want to practice the idea as a project and hopefully we can grow that project to go beyond our Masjid to include other Masjids within the Bay Area. The new project is aiming to help community members to alleviate financial burdens caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic. We would like to start with few community members (3 to 10 at the most), provided that they are approved by the board members to display and/or to sell their self-made or their handcrafted products prior and post our weekly two Friday prayers. Click here to find more about the project.
We would like to remind you that Darulislam Masjid is totally dependent on your membership dues and donations. Our typical fundraising activities have been greatly curtailed due to the severe limitations on attendance/gatherings. We urge you to send your generous donations and or drop them in the collection boxes, located around the Masjid.
We also would like to remind you that we have “Fatwas” from Egypt and Iraq stating that donations to a Masjid like ours, operating in a non-Muslim country, may be considered as Zakat. So please remember Darulislam when you develop your plan for distributing this year’s Zakat.
We pray that you, your family, and friends stay safe and healthy and ask you to continue following instructions/guidelines from the Federal, State and County authorities.
Darulislam Masjid Board of Trustees
“Give, even when you know you can get nothing back.”
We would like to remind you again with some of the more important guidelines to follow for consistent practices at all times:
We ask you to please:
– Inform all your family members and friends with the above guidelines to insure strict adherence by all members.
– Donate generously to your Masjid and help in covering the large expenses, incurred in bringing the facilities to safe and suitable standards.
