Meeting with the community to discuss the procurement of the property for the New IAOS Masjid.
Our second application for a New Masjid and Community Centre on Arcola Avenue / Highway 33 within the Rural Municipality (RM) of Sherwood was denied by the RM Council last month.
In anticipation of this, the IAOS Board had been working on development of new options within the city of Regina, for the site of a new Masjid and Community Centre, since the beginning of its term in October 2016. IAOS Board also received valuable advice from the community members in February 2017 on this important initiative. Based on this, the Board developed three options for the new Masjid and Community Centre and presented them to IAOS members in an Extraordinary General Body Meeting held on May 22, 2017. Alhamdullilah, the IAOS members authorized the Board to acquire a property located at 525 12th Avenue, Regina (off Victoria Avenue) to develop a new IAOS Masjid and Community Centre.
Before pursuing to purchase the 12th Avenue property the IAOS Board intends to take the Community into confidence about the Site. For this purpose all Community members are invited to learn about this opportunity.
We request all the donors of our New Masjid and Community Centre Fund to attend this important meeting.
Jazak Allah Khair
