Dear Brothers& Sisters,
Alhumdulilah the INTEREST FREE Mortgage on the Islamic Center of Fayetteville (ICF) masjid is almost paid in full! So, we are reaching out to you in a special fundraising effort to help us reach the goal of being debt free before the end of 2021.
On August 23rd, 2018 Allah blessed us to be able to purchase the ICF masjid for $360,000. This was made possible using cash resources from our Building Fund plus a generous interest free loan of $200,000 from a Muslim benefactor. Through your monthly donations and annual fundraising during Ramadan, combined with the recent funds generated from the sale of real property we owned at another location, as of August 2021 we had a $45,000 balance remaining to pay off our loan in full!
UPDATE: ALHUMDULILAH! THANKS TO DONATIONS ALREADY RECEIVED DURING THIS FUNDRAISING EFFORT, AS OF OCTOBER 1ST, 2021, OUR REMAINING LOAN BALANCE IS $26,000
This is why we are reaching out to again ask for your generous donations to help pay off the remaining balance on this loan. Generally we limit our major fundraising efforts to once a year during Ramadan. However, we are so excited about being able to pay off our loan and leave a fully paid House of Allah for future Muslim generations in Fayetteville that we decided to reach out in a second major fundraising effort this year. We hope that you will agree that this is a worthwhile special fundraising effort and contribute generously toward this goal. We could quickly reach this goal by 45 people donating $1,000 or 15 people donating $3,000. We’re that close! But of course any and all donations are welcome and appreciated.
We thank Allah and you for your generous past contributions, and we hope that you will remain contributors for our annual fundraisers for future growth and development. However, we hope that you will also share in our excitement about the possibility of paying off our existing loan in less than four years by helping us pay the $26,000 balance before the end of 2021. We thank Allah for this great Blessing and opportunity to help build a masjid for His remembrance in Fayetteville, NC. As the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “Whoever builds a masjid for the sake of Allah, even like a sparrow’s nest or even smaller, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise.”
May Allah build many houses for us in Paradise for helping to build His masjid at ICF!

ICF is a formally registered and chartered charitable religious organization recognized under the laws of the United States federal government as well as the state of North Carolina.
The Islamic Center of Fayetteville was established as an organization in 2008 for the purpose of establishing a masjid, school, and dawah center in a central location in the city of Fayetteville, North Carolina. From years of working and living in this city, the organization founders believed that there was a need for these services in this location.
Through significant personal efforts and financial contributions and local fundraising, ICF established its first physical location in a rented structure on Grove Street in 2008. In 2010 we moved operations to another rented location, and in 2011 we moved to yet another rental site at 607 German Street, Fayetteville, North Carolina. In just ten relatively short years, Allah Blessed us to purchase our current facility at 2415 Rosehill Road on August 23rd, 2018. At our new, and insha’Allah permanent facility, we hope to continue our regular activities which include hosting Jummah Salat every Friday, regular weekend Islamic study activities for children and adults, ICF community social activities, community outreach activities, Annual Islamic Conferences, an annual college scholarship program, and both Eid and janazah functions in participation with other local Islamic communities.
