السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, please allow us to begin this letter on behalf of the standing Boston Islamic Center committee -- to express its feelings of gratitude and honor to you, the people of Greater Boston, her neighboring Muslim allies, and all those who enjoin upon good

BIC is a mosque located in Jamaica Plain, and for the last 15 years has been serving the Somali demographic specifically but not exclusively as its doors are open to the entire Ummah. Throughout the past decade BIC's existence has been solely dependent on donations from the community to pay off its monthly rent. It was during this time that the crippling effects of renting in an ever fluctuating economy were felt, as we're the narrowness of a crowded mosque. Day by day the need for larger land--owned by BIC were growing. 

Upon years of trial and error, embodied sacrifice, and commitment, hope was seen on the horizon. Just recently BIC managed to reach an agreement on a piece of land located in the heart of the Somali community, otherwise 'bustling' Roxbury. 

(Location: 2870 Washington St, Roxbury MA, 02119)

First and foremost, we would like to thank Allah for his continuous blessings upon us. We also recognize those who took charge and helped pay for the initial installments. However much work is yet to be done. 400,000 has already been invested in the land and another 1.1 million is due to be paid. We need the people of Boston and her Muslim allies to act now more than ever before. With due diligence and the help of Allah swt the said amount can be paid in full. 

The prophet PBUH said 
مَنْ بَنَى مَسْجِدًا لِلَّهِ بَنَى اللَّهُ لَهُ فِي الْجَنَّةِ مِثْلَهُ

"Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, then Allah will build for him a similar house in Paradise.” The words of PROMuhammad pbuh are enough to encourage one and all to take part in this endeavor. Extend forth your hand in the virtue of building a mosque because of all the land in the world Allah loves the mosques the most. 

Truly extraordinary are the work of the Muslims, and even more
extravagant are the houses of Allah. 

Jazakum Allahu khayr
