Assalamualaykum, Welcome to the Website of Masjid As-Salam in Albany,NY.

Below is the details of fundraising

Venue: Masjid as Salam
           280 Central Avenue,

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,

Our ongoing Projects:

1. Alhamdulillah, we own now three buildings. Their maintenance, running, cleanup and repair of wear and tear costs some money- more than we get as regular donations during the Friday prayers.

2. Our Masjid runs a very successful Hifzh program 5 days a week. About 90 students –boys and girls- attend the program. A few students have already completed the Hifzh and a few more are heading in that direction and inshaAllah will be completing their Hifzh in due course. Even compensating the teachers on a minimal basis costs reasonable amount of money for this program.

3. We run a weekend school for boys and girls, as well. About 70 students participated in this program this year. Again paying the minimal to the six teachers involved was a big pressure on the Masjid’s budget.

4. Last year after the purchase we cleaned out the school building, which is a large and big building over three floors street to street, renovated its two floors and its exterior and built three bathrooms. We want to finish the renovation and to bring the building to the codes so that it can be used for our school’s expanded programs, as well some additional programs, such as After School Programs, Home Schooling, Adult Learning, etc.

5. We just installed two new roofs- one on the new Masjid building (280 Central Ave, and another on the back part of the 276-Central Ave building, and have contracted for the roof replacement of the backside of the school building.

As you obviously may note that these projects are very much needed for our community and to handle them properly your generous financial help is needed. These are very positive, objective and constructive programs and your help inshaAllah will be rewarded with plentiful multiplications by Allah Subhanahu Ta’Aala in the Hereafter.
