ICYL Community Announcement

Assalam Alaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It is with great pleasure that we give you this wonderful news that Allah (SWT) has given each of us an opportunity to build His house that shall serve as a beacon of Light in the City of Yorba Linda/Anaheim Hills, California.

The foundation of what currently is Islamic Center of Yorba Linda (ICYL) was laid in 1997 when a generous brother donated part of his office space just for Taraveeh prayers.  Since then, the community has grown.  ICYL rented a two-story 5,000 square foot warehouse, serving Yorba Linda and the neighboring communities of Anaheim Hills, Brea, and Placentia for the last few years. The Islamic Center offered daily and Friday prayers, Sunday school for the youth, weekly activities for the sisters, Family Night, interfaith activities and much more.

In January 2017, the Islamic Center of Yorba Linda (ICYL) Board was informed by the landlord that the current lease will not be renewed past the September 2017 expiration.  Surely, Allah (SWT) works in mysterious ways as this lease termination has come as a blessing in disguise.

ICYL was able to secure and purchase a 3-acre parcel of land. The project to build a mosque on that property would take 3-4 years and Allah (SWT)  opened another door.

ICYL were able to find a church for sale in the heart of Yorba Linda. With the grace of Allah (SWT), we are able to get into escrow for this new property. This property is approximately 4 acres with an 18000 sf building which will become an immediate home for ICYL within few months. Inshallah.

The 4 year long waiting process will be over by the end of this year and we will move into a location that will fulfill the need of the community for generations to come with the huge potential for growth.

We have 45 days to close escrow and we are looking to raise $1.9 million immediately with the help of Allah (SWT).

We are organizing a fundraiser on the 25th of February and would like each and every single family to reach out and help get this amount raised. This is a challenge for all of us and also an amazing opportunity for the community at large.

Let’s reach out to each and everyone we know with this blessed news and secure their support for this beautiful cause.

With Allah’s guidance and your support, Inshallah, we will build an Islamic Center on this land where Muslims will unite, our youth who are our ambassadors of tomorrow will learn, our seniors will come for tranquility and pass on their wisdom to the next generation of Muslims and where all of us will come together in harmony and peace for one purpose:  To worship Allah (SWT), the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent.

Brothers and Sisters, regardless of where we live, we can donate to this Islamic Center as founders and bricklayers to reap the rewards for generations to come.  May Allah (SWT) allow all of us, by opening our hearts and minds, to build His house: Inshallah, Allah will build a house for us in Jannah.

ICYL humbly requests your support and May Allah (SWT) open our hearts to donate generously.


Jazakallah Khair
May Allah accept and guide.
