In this blog, there are quite a few important updates....
Alhamdullilah, MCSC received Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) from the Hillsborough Township for the new Masjid building at 26 New Amwell Road.
As many of you are aware, we started this journey on the New Amwell Road property in 2016 and after 4+ years of hard work we reached this important milestone of establishing and opening the first Masjid in Somerset County. As an organization, it took us about 28 years to locate, build and open the doors to our own place of worship, our own community center.
First and foremost, we would like to express our humble, heart-felt deep gratitude and thanks to Allah SWT for helping us achieve this goal. We are thankful for the efforts right from the humble beginning of MCSC in 1992 including all the past, present Board Members and numerous volunteers who contributed their time, donations and efforts in this endeavor. May Allah SWT accept all their efforts and make this deed as hasanat on the Day of Judgement, help and guide us all to make/use of this Masjid and community center for future generations to strive in becoming good Muslims to serve the humanity.
In the last few weeks, a number of items were completed including the Qibla facing Mehrab tile work in the Prayer Hall. Below are few pictures.
Daily prayers have started at the MCSC Masjid in Hillsborough, please check the prayer timings/schedule on the Home. All the congregants will be required to follow COVID-19 Guidelines, these are available online for your review. We have prepared the prayer hall to follow the social distancing guidelines during the prayer services.
Please continue to donate generously to help us complete our financial commitments related to the construction and establishment of the MCSC Masjid.
Jazak Allah Khair for your continued support and Duas.
