To whom it may concern

Asalamu Alaikum....  The Islamic Center of Puget Sound (ICOPS) is seeking to raise $2 million by 12/2021 for our Masjid located at 15709 Hwy 99, Lynnwood, WA 98087. 

ICOPS was created in 2012 from the benevolent support of our community members. Since then we have been serving our diverse communities in the Puget Sound, including cities like Edmonds, Marysville, Everett, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood, Bothell, Snohomish, and Lake Stevens. 

Over the years, we have raised thousands of dollars from generous donors like you. These funds have been used to support our programs and developments including:

•The leasing of a temporary prayer location on Lincoln Way/Mukilteo 
• The creation of the ICOPS Dara for our kids to learn Islam and the Holy Quran 
• The fundraising events to support the Masjid and Iftar during Ramadan 
• The monthly rent for the Lease-to-Own property at our new current location 
• The permits, building materials, and other costs of renovation for the current location. 
• The ongoing miscellaneous monthly expenses 

The board has been continuously making monthly payments to fulfill the Lease-to-Own agreement, but the lease agreement will expire in less than two years. If we fail to pay this amount by the time the agreement expires, the ICOPS Community risk losing both the property and the improvements to the land. 

Please support the Masjid by making the pledge to donate at ICOPSMasjid.org/pledge

ICOPS Masjid at glance

After we outgrew the capacity of the rental facility in 2016, Alhamdulillah, Allah with His mercy, helped us secure a 4 year lease-to-own property located in 2018 for $2.8 million, which has an outstanding payment of $2 million due by Dec 2021. 

Masjid doors

We are seeking donations from generous community members to help pay-off the remaining amount by the due date, so we can focus on providing outstanding services to the community. We can secure this property, if we get 400 people or groups donating $5k by December 2021. We humbly request you to make dua to Allah, make a donation (every dollar counts) and help bring two or more people in your circle to donate for this cause. Please take advantage of this great opportunity to secure your share in the purchase of the masjid property.

Insha Allah, we are planning to add these programs in the near future.

BREIF REVIEW

ICOPS Masjid Timeline

Here is a brief overview of the masjid history and timeline

In 2012

Non-Profit approved

ICOPS was formed as a non-profit organization to establish a masjid and educational institute in Lynnwood.

In 2011

Facility Rental

We started operations in a rented facility in Mukilteo.

In 2016

Community Growth

We outgrew the rental facility due the space and parking spot restrictions

In 2018

Deal on new facility

ICOPS entered into a lease-to-own contract for the purchase of 1.8 acre property at a value of $2.8 million with zero interest. Alhamdulillah, we started the construction work for the masjid in Apr 2018.

In 2019

Permits & Construction

We consumed much of 2019 due to county, state and city certification requirements. Alhadulillah, we got the approval and permit on 12/23/19 and we prayed our first Jumu’a in the new masjid on 12/27/2019.

In 2020

Fundraising commences

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have scheduled various online and virtual fundraisers with support from imams and boards from the neighboring masjids such as Masjid Umar Al Farooq, ICOE, ICOR, Masjid Madeena, MAPS, Bilal Masid and ICOB.

In 2021

Target deadlines

Target date to pay-off the masjid and convert the lease-to-own contract by Dec 2021.

February of 2022

Drop dead, deadline

The lease-to-own contract expires and the owner has the choice to either terminate or renew the contract.

 

Fundraiser Goal and Plans

This is an effort and an opportunity in the path of Allah, so your Dua and kindness is the most important donation and support. In order to help us achieve our financial goals and to pay-off the property, we recommend a donation of $5,000 from 400 community members, family or group before Dec 2021. 

You may pay it as 15 monthly deductions ($333 per month) from Oct 2020 to Dec 2021. We understand the financial situation may be different for each of us especially in the current pandemic and economic conditions. Every dua and dollar counts, so if you cannot donate $5k, please support us with duas and if possible with smaller amounts (May Allah reward you in multiples). 

You may also pool in with your friends or use employer matching to get to $5,000 or a smaller amount. We kindly request you to spread the word and encourage at least two more people in your circle to support this effort by either donating or spreading the word. And those who are blessed with the ability to donate more than $5,000, please donate generously and earn rewards in multiples. 

Every dollar spent here will be used to buy the property to establish the House of Allah and Allah has promised us in the Quran that he will reward us in multiples both in this world and in the Akhirat. 

“May Allah bless you to join hands and establish this masjid and many more masajids and reward you with forgiveness and with a beautiful house in the highest ranks of Jannah”
