The Mosque in Mercy is rented from the local reverend and is situated in a Parish hall. The reverend needs to support his church so he rents space to Yassar’s construction company which uses the space for multiple purposes.
Subhanallah, our Masjid is fully owned and operated by approximately 25 families. We have work weekends where fellow muslims spend the better part of the weekend helping with improving the Masjid. It was purchased in January 2000 from a church after rigorous fund raising efforts in nearby communities. In December 2001, the Masjid was debt free.
Nowadays, the Masjid improvements consist of yard work, gardening, painting and improving facilities.
