About a month ago, we apprised the larger Muslim community of some of the struggles that Masjid Khadeejah has been facing in finding a rental facility. We also mentioned that we would be working on a plan to secure a permanent location to build a more solid ground from which we can expand and grow, insha’Allah.

The time has come. The board, al hamdou-lilah, has already started its quest to identify such a location in a two-phased approach:

    Phase 1: Buy a land conveniently located in the south Denver area.
    Phase 2: Build a masjid that meets our projected growth.

The prices for lands are historically low and will not remain such forever, hence the need for the board and the community to act quickly and diligently. We currently have $70,000 in the bank and we would like to raise, with Allah’s blessing, $140,000 during the month of Ramadan.

We, all of us, have an amazing opportunity to continue to support and grow a nascent effort that has survived and thrived.

Our struggle is known. Our commitment is unwavering. Our trust in the community and its generosity is firm.

When Allah, the most Bountiful, makes a promise, He surely does not break His promise: whatever you give or spend in the way of Allah will be returned to you in manifold increase.”Lend unto God a goodly loan. Whatever good you shall forward on your behalf you shall find it with God, as better and richer in reward.” [al-Muzzammil 73: 20.]

We understand the commitments that our community has to the different efforts in the way of Allah. We pray that you can support our effort in a number of ways:
