Dear Brothers/Sisters of our community,
We hope and pray that this letter finds you in good health and high spirits, insha-Allah.
are very pleased to extend an invitation to you for a fund raising
dinner- for the renovation project of the Masjid and the school building
we bought recently- to be held on Sunday, July 12, 2015, at 8:30 pm, in
the Masjid As-Salam at 280 Central Ave, Albany, NY 12206.
at Masjid As-Salam, very much appreciate your generous contribution
made in our last fund raising events for our projects. May Allah reward
you plentiful for your valuable contribution and may He add this act as a
heavy weight in your balance of good deeds on the Day of Judgment,
Aameen. We are short of funds to complete the ongoing projects, that’s
why we are organizing this fund raising again.
We will be
very delighted and honored if you could kindly accept our invitation
and make it to this fund raising dinner. We are looking forward to
receiving you there, insha-Allah.
With a lot of prayers, Wassalam,
Fund raising committee, Masjid As-Salam.
Our ongoing renovation Projects:
you already know there were code complications and high costs involved
in expanding the existing Masjid building, therefore we decided to
expand it to the next door building that consists of street-to-street
building on the first floor and four apartments on the second and third
Alhamdulillah, the construction project was completed,
Certificate of Occupancy by the City of Albany was obtained and the
space was started to be used from the first day of the last Ramadan- the
front section of this new building is being used for Jumah prayers and
special functions by the brothers and the middle and back sections by
the sisters on constant use basis. Recently we opened two doors and
joined the two buildings together making access to the full space of
both buildings convenient and easy. We are grateful to Allah, and are
very pleased that the
completion of this project has eased out
the congestion we had been facing for the last several years, as well
as, it has encouraged us to plan and execute other fruitful programs.
a few months ago we bought another building next-to-next to the Masjid,
at 270 Central Ave. This was a 3-storey Albany School Building, very
solidly built, street-to-street building. Our plan is to renovate it for
Masjid’s schooling programs. Renovation work has already started and
three large classrooms are already completed.
plan is to build some more facility space in this school building and to
renovate the old space of the masjid. Plans and drawings are finalized
and proceedings of obtaining building permits from the City of Albany
