We hope this message finds you in best of Imaan and Health. Please see our Masjid expansion and fundraising update and planned next steps, inshaAllah.
Alhamdulilah by the infinite grace and mercy of Allah SWT, we had a successful fundraising event on Friday, Sep. 18th, 2020 at our Masjid that was also multi-casted to members attending remotely. The two goals for the fundraiser were:
• To Raise $235,000 for initial down payment on the property and minor renovation cost
• To get $6,500 or 65-Units ($100 each) monthly sponsors for 5-years to pay-off remaining interest free property cost and operational expenses.
Alhamdulilah, all praise to Allah SWT and His infinite mercy and blessings. As of today, we have raised $305K with $190K in cash and rest in pledges. Also, all 65-units for monthly recurring payments are also pledged.
You (our community members) rose to the challenge and supported this project generously. We ask Allah to accept your saddaqah jariyah and reward you in this life and in the next. May Allah reward you for every child who comes to the community center to learn to read the Quraan, for every brother and sister who uses the facility to learn the hadith of our beloved prophet (SAS) and for anyone who relies on community based free medical services for their medical needs.
With regards to our next steps, your generous support has afforded us the opportunity to reconsider our initial plan of buying the property through a five-year installment plan to fully pay off the property.

• Construction & closing cost: $60,000

- ISF Management
ISF Community Center will unify the community, strengthen the youth and expand our capabilities In Shaa Allāh.
As Salāmu ‘Alaykum respected elders, brothers and sisters of the Metrowest community and beyond. The Islamic Society of Framingham is happy to inform you that we are inquiring to purchase a new property on 34 Deloss St. across Masjid-e-Basheer.
Why are we purchasing this property?
Al Hamdu Lillāh we have a fully functioning masjid. However, there are certain boundaries that the masjid cannot overstep and certain needs of the community that it cannot fulfill.
The Future is BRIGHT!
This property will allow the Framingham community, youth, and anyone else around the area to utilize the ISF community Center in a safe and purposeful way. This building has the potential to symbolize a united community.
We intend the ISF community Center to impact all levels of the community. From youth game nights, to adult classes, to sisters’ only bayaans, to senior nights, we have a full array of future plans. In addition, we plan to leverage the talents and skills of our community members that are doctors, business owners, field workers, and educators to make the ISF community Center a place where they can provide honest mentorship.
This is not just a property of ISF, this is for you, this is for the community, and this is for our future.
