Abdullahi Xagalle
Assalamu Calaykum Wr Wb. Boston Islamic Center would like to inform all its members that the center found a new building that could potentially be our future Masjid. The building is located at 50 Cedar Street, Roxbury, MA 02119 and it is an active church. This building contains 18000 square feet of land (of which 8040 square feet of it is the building itself). It also has a parking lot of 10,000 square feet (which could hold approx. 50-65 cars).

In addition to that, the building is two floors with several offices and a big commercial kitchen. Boston Islamic Center had already signed a preliminary agreement of this building that would cost
One Million Dollars ($1,000,000). In order the agreement to proceed to a final purchase, the owners and realtor need to see PROOF OF FUNDS by December 31, 2014. Moreover, when we are able to show that we can pay for a purchase of one million dollars, the owners will have the confidence that they would accept our offer.

We thank all brothers and sisters who already lend the Masjid the amount we asked for and we appreciate their urgent responses. We also ask the remaining members of this wonderful center to participate loaning the masjid for at least a minimum of $3000 per person. We promise to give this money back no later than December 31, 2015. We are also open for any person who wants to donate to the masjid for the sake of Allah. Please know that BIC owns a property at 63 Perrin Street Roxbury, MA 02119 which contains 27,000 square feet. This property is on the market for sale for the time being.

Please be generous and pay a loan that Allah would reward you for a Jannatul Firdaws. We also promise to pay back this borrowed money. May Allah reward you for your good intentions and give you His highest places in paradise.

For more information please contact BIC Treasurer, Yonis Yasin at or come to the Masjid.
