ICYL’s thanks to the community for a successful fundraiser

Dear Brothers, Sisters, and Respected Elders;

Assalam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahe Wa Barakatuhu,

The leadership team of the Islamic Center of Yorba Linda thanks Allah (SWT) for giving us the opportunity to get together last Sunday, February 25th for the fundraising dinner for our new masjid. It gave us all an opportunity to do something for our own good and for the Akhira. We thank all the scholars and speakers with a special thank you to Shaikh Monzer Talib for flying to Southern CA from Dallas to assist us in getting closer to our final target.

We would like to thank all the guests and donors who made the evening a successful one. Our appreciation goes out to over 50 volunteers, all of the committee members, and the committee leads. You all were awesome from the lead up all the way till the end of the evening. It would have been impossible to put this fundraiser together without your tireless help and support. The reality is, the whole community has been working towards this common goal to build the house of Allah (SWT). What an amazing job.

Alhumdulillah we raised nearly $700,000 in one evening! While we were not able to achieve our full goal, the amount raised was an amazing achievement. It is a testimony to our community and communities around us who came to support us, that we are united in noble causes. Our ultimate goal was $1.95M to complete the $4.9M purchase.

Our new goal, between now and March 22nd, is $400,000. We will then complete the total with Qard Hasna borrowing. If you’ve given already, please consider giving again. Do let others in your network of friends and family know. Asking for support for something so noble should not be considered a burden but rather as an opportunity to share in the Khair.

We are looking forward to dreaming big, planning well, and executing. We pray our new place is going to be a springboard to greater heights for our new community. A new ICYL, unencumbered by the past and only looking forward.

In order to achieve our collective goals, we will need continued support and input to make this a successful Islamic Center. Our goal is to make the new ICYL a place where the community will feel welcomed and a place where locals and people outside the community will look forward to visiting.

We will be sending out a survey about last Sunday’s fundraiser and we hope you will participate and help us improve for future events.

Again, thank you to everybody who attended and also to those who were not able to attend but still supported ICYL with their prayers and donations. We appreciate everyone coming together as one united ummah to strive towards our collective goal. The ICYL board is grateful to be able to serve the community.

Jazakallah Khair and Wasalaamu Alaikum
