Welcome to the ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF ROOSEVELT ISLAND
Assalaamu 'Alaikum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh!
As many of you know, ISRI has been trying to obtain a permanent space for a mosque for years. We have been challenged by politics, licensing, and availability of functional space.
It is with great Joy and Happiness that we share this exciting News!!
ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF ROOSEVELT ISLAND HAS A NEW PERMANENT SPACE, LOCATED AT 564 MAIN STREET!!
We have a Board of Directors who will be in charge of making the decisions on construction, policies, organization, and most importantly, Islamic Leadership. Our goal is to have the Mosque constructed, and in use, by March 2019.
We have a growing population of Muslims on Roosevelt Island, with over 200+ families, currently. Of these families, many have young children, that has been asking for years, for a permanent Mosque.
We plan on having Salaat Prayers 5 times daily, Islamic Classes for Adults/Children, Community Events, and many other activities, as we grow into the Mosque.
We are now in need of funds to go towards the Mosque. Funds will be used towards the following:
• Part-Time Imam • Book Shelves
• Security System • TV’s
• Audio System • Mosque Expenses (overhead, etc..)
• Portions of Construction

Who is it that will give Allah a beautiful loan? A loan that Allah will repay after increasing it many times and grant him a generous reward.<br />
