Assalamualaikom, Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Alhamdullilah and Jazaakumu Allah Khieraa for your generous support and donations at our fundraiser last night!! With Allah's mercy and permission, and your generous support, Maryum Islamic Center was able to reach the goal of raising $205,000 for the down-payment needed to secure the beautiful 5 acre property in Marriotsville MD (pending clearance of checks and pledges InshaAllah).

Alhamdulillah the community turned out in large numbers and participated in a lively and valuable discussion of community visions for our future Masjid. Attendees at each table identified the top five (5) activities or programs the community would like to see initiated at the new Masjid. Among the most often-mentioned activities are expanded and new youth activities in addition to activities for younger children, Arabic classes for all ages, outdoor family activities to increase opportunities for community fun and worship, outreach/dawah, classes to support reverts, school/daycare, sports, family support services including counseling/medical services, matrimonial services, funeral services, and education on domestic violence.  

Thanks to Allah and to our generous and supportive community, we have reached the first step to secure a permanent location for Maryum Islamic Center. With your continued support and dua's, we look forward to providing additional space for our Muslim community.  

The Maryum Islamic Center Board of Trustees would like to extend a special thank you to the many volunteers who helped to make last night's event a success!! 

For anyone who was unable to attend our fundraiser and would like to contribute, or for anyone seeking additional opportunity for sadaqah jariyah, Maryum Islamic Center would welcome additional donations.

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Assalamualaikom, Dear Brothers and Sisters,

We at Maryum Islamic Center hope this message finds you in the best of health and iman.
It has been a while since we have written an update to the community, and we now have exciting news to share.  
We are excited to announce that we have been approved on an offer we made on 5 beautiful acres with a dwelling in the heart of Howard County.
This property is picturesque, has outstanding potential, and will be usable immediately upon purchase.  We will be able to continue all of our activities such as the Haleqa’s, prayers, and IQRA school program.  

Maryum Islamic Center has been in operation since 2012, when a small group of sisters was looking for a spiritual home in which to continue the weekly Halaqa group many of us became accustomed to, over a period of several years. The halaqa group sisters came with families, and thus Maryum Islamic Center grew to provide regular prayers and fellowship, contributing to the 
Howard  County Muslim community for the past several years.

As many of you are aware, Maryum Islamic Center was forced to vacate our leased space in June 2019 during the end of Ramadan.  MIC has weathered the challenges of finding space to continue our mission of providing a worship space and enriching activities including weekly Halaqas, prayers,
 and IQRA school programs.

To fully realize the goal of having a permanent home for Maryum Islamic Center, we will need community support and will welcome ever increasing community involvement.  The property comes at a total of $715,000 and we need to raise $205,000 by 
February 15th, 2020 in order to meet our closing deadline. 

Inshallah, stay tuned for further updates as we approach closing deadlines and please donate generously to achieve your own lasting Sadaqah Jariyah.
