As Salaam Alaykum, (May the peace that only G-d can give be upon you.)
Dear Brothers, Sisters and Friends
This is an urgent appeal for you to become a partner and join PROJECT T.E.A.M. (To Establish A Masjid) in investing in building a Masjid of peace and service to humanity. We are asking 100,000 right-minded people like you to contribute $5.00 to this worthy project.
For the past thirteen plus years, after that very painful and dark day of 9-11-2001, I and the members of As Salaam Islamic (The Peace) Center of Raleigh, have condemned and have been working tirelessly to fight against radicalism, terrorism and extremism in religion. We have worked to build bridges of peace and reconciliation with people of all faiths and creeds. We have participated in Intrafaith and Interfaith services and dialogues promoting religious understanding.
The members of As Salaam Islamic Center deliver food on a monthly basis to the Salvation Army, feeding hundreds of homeless individuals and families. We have a prison outreach dawah and ministry program, where we provide counseling and resources to inmates and ex-offenders. We have a weekend school, where we are working to instill wholesome values to preserve our youth and protect them from the negative influences in our society. These programs and others are designed to meet the needs of the general community as well. Unfortunately, at this time, we don’t have a facility to house these programs and others that are so vitally needed. We want to be able to provide our women and children with a friendly environment, where all can study and utilize this resource center to reach their G-d given potential. It will also serve the Muslim community in Southeast Raleigh and will give them a safe and serene place to study their faith, perform Jumuah (congregational) prayer, as well as their five daily prayers.
To date, we have raised 10.5 percent of our goal, and now we are asking you to partner with us and make an investment in our vision and mission of freedom, justice, equality, moderation, and peace by helping us raise $500,000.00 to build a facility to serve the spiritual, social, and educational needs of our families and the South East Raleigh community in general.
Join us in reaping the benefits of this worthy endeavor by mail or through PayPal on our website. Prophet Muhammad said, “Whoever helps to build a house for Allah in this life, Allah will build a house for them in Paradise.” May Allah reward you and your family. May Allah bless you with peace and protection from the assaults of the evil extreme wrong doers. Ameen.
