|مَّن ذَا الَّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللّهَ قَرْضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ أَضْعَافًا كَثِيرَةً وَاللّهُ يَقْبِضُ وَيَبْسُطُ وَإِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ
كيست آن كه به خداوند قرض الحسنه دهد تا خدا آن را برايش چندين برابر فزونتر كند؟
!و خداست كه (روزى را) تنگ مىكند و مى گسترد، و به سوى او بازگردانده مىشويد
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
May Allah Ta’ala accept all your prayers and fasting in this blessed month of Ramadan.
As you know with the blessings of Allah and Alhlu-Bait, your prayers, donations, and efforts, Irshad Learning Center has finished Phase-I of its construction project (parking lot, site planning and landscaping, and completed partial renovation to the building to make it usable) and then successfully obtained occupancy permit. Immediately after receiving the permit, we have started utilizing the building and Alhamdolilah have held daily programs this Ramadan. Now we have a home for our community and a place to hold our activities. In order to pay our loan commitment (with payment due of August 1st), to start Phase-II of the construction work, to pay property taxes, and to cover maintenance costs, we will need to raise $200,000 (including $100K for loan payment, $70K for construction, and maintenance, $15K for property taxes, and $15K operating costs).
As announced in the last programs of Irshad and in order to accomplish our goals, we need all community members to participate in a fundraiser event that is scheduled for June 24-26 after Iftar/dinner at our Qadr programs, so that we can have enough cash to operate the center. Given our absolute reliance on the community, we are inviting every one of you to become partner in this blessed opportunity of supporting a permanent place for our community. We owe it to ourselves, our children, our youth, and future generations to have a place that they can call home (or our center) where they can commemorate and learn the lofty values and virtues of our great religion.
Please see the attached donation form, bring your checkbooks, spread the word, and encourage as many people as possible to participate in this community building effort, and please contact us with any question that you might have. Please note that your donation is tax deductible under 501(c)(3).
