This Ramadan, please continue your support for the Muslim community at large. We support tens of thousands of Muslims locally and abroad through educational services, support services and financial services. Your donation makes all the difference.
The operation and upkeep of Abu Huraira Center is financed mainly from donations congregation/community. The donations received are very important to ensure the well-being of the Abu Huraira Center in terms of meeting its operational costs and maintenance.
Monthly Total: $56,900
Annual Total: $682,000
In 2019, we completed the purchase of the building located at 280 Yorkland BLVD. The building cost $8.8 million and with the help of the community we raised an interest free loan (Qard Al Hassan) from the community of $3 million dollars in order to help with the purchase of the building next door. To date, we have paid back $2.5 million of the $3 million. What remains is $500,000. Quite honestly, we believe we would have paid this loan off earlier. But the COVID situation and the lock downs has made it extremely difficult for our center to not only pay off the loan, but to keep up with operating costs. This center was purchased because of the growing needs of the community as well as accommodating the future needs of the community. So let us all help out, however big or small by donating any amount that we can afford to pay this loan off and give people their rights back. Jazakum’Allahu khairan wa barakalahu feekum.
Alhamdullillah only $500,000 remains from the $3 million loan.
The Covid 19 situation in addition to the lock downs has made it extremely difficult to paying off the interest free loan.
With growing needs of the community, maximum capacity of building 270 being met, we had no choice but to purchase 280 Yorkland BLVD.
From 1,500 ft2 in 1998 to 63,0000 ft2 in 2019, our center has grown by 41x in the last two decades.
With two buildings now serving the community, this has opened up the center to more activities, events, schools and all around accommodations for our growing community.
Our vision has always been to fulfill and meet the requirements of our community no matter the size, big or small. But Alhamdulillah, our community is growing and day by day our needs are growing. The foundation is now laid to accommodate and expand.
Your donation will support expanding many initiatives that Abu Huraira Center is world-renowned for including:
QUR'ANSurah Ali 'Imran 3:92
لَن تَنَالُوا۟ ٱلْبِرَّ حَتَّىٰ تُنفِقُوا۟ مِمَّا تُحِبُّونَ ۚ وَمَا تُنفِقُوا۟ مِن شَىْءٍۢ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ بِهِۦ عَلِيمٌۭ
By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you spend of that which you love; and whatever of good you spend, Allah knows it well.
HADITHBukhari and Muslim
مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدًا لِلَّهِ بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مِثْلَهُ
He who builds a Mosque for Allah, Allah would build for him (a house) in Paradise like it
QUR'ANSurah Al-Munafiqun 63:10
وَأَنفِقُوا۟ مِن مَّا رَزَقْنَـٰكُم مِّن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِىَ أَحَدَكُمُ ٱلْمَوْتُ فَيَقُولَ رَبِّ لَوْلَآ أَخَّرْتَنِىٓ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٍۢ قَرِيبٍۢ فَأَصَّدَّقَ وَأَكُن مِّنَ ٱلصَّـٰلِحِينَ
