Assalamu Alaykum to all of you.
On behalf of the entire Masjid Manhattan family, we pray that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. We miss many of the familiar faces that graced our masjid each day. InshaAllah, we will be together soon.
As you know, the COVID-19 has changed almost all aspects of our lives, including the way we run the Masajids. This crisis has limited our resources and the ability to raise funds at the masjid. Therefore, we would like to inform you that Masjid Manhattan has received a notice from the Department of Buildings mandating changes to the elevator system to meet DOB 2020 Code for Elevators, and also, mandating an upgrade the Fire Monitoring System.
We are reaching out to you for help. We have a proposal in hand of $30,000. We must raise these funds for these urgent repairs. We are confident that Insha'Allah, if we all unite as we have done in the past, we can reach our goal and keep our elevator up and running. Please donate towards the "Fire Monitoring system fund here". For Zelle users, (encouraged to donate using this option as no cc fees are charged) please indicate on your donation memo "Fire Monitoring system Fund".
Please remember that your donations to Masjid Manhattan are tax deductible and zakat elegible. Allah, the Generous, in His infinite mercy assures us that the good deeds of His righteous servants will be multiplied up to 700 times or even more. "The example of those who spend their wealth in the way of Allah is like a seed which grows seven spikes, in each spike is a hundred grains. Allah multiplies His reward for whom He wills, for Allah is vast and knowing." (2:261).
