0 3

Members of the Muslim community in East Brunswick, New Jersey, gathered for a special and joyous occasion on Tuesday to celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony of their expanded new mosque.

FEED THE POOR

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

After five years of planning, the new 11,000-square-foot building will have an assembly and prayer area, multi-purpose room, offices, and accommodation for the Imam.

“The most blessed places on this earth are the masajids, the places of worship. … These places bring out the best of us … (and) … God’s special mercy descends on these placed,” Imam Rehaan of the Islamic Center of East Brunswick (ICEB) said, Central Jersey reported.

“These are known to be the house of Allah or God. … They no longer belong to any human being …. rather they are going to the ownership of Allah – the Almighty.”

Sharing the Muslim community in their special day, mayor Brad Cohen relayed the messages of harmony, peace, and good wishes.

“As a representative of the community and as a representative of my own faith … one of the greatest things you could do as a human is to create a home,” he said.

“(This home) should be a place of peace, it should be a place where we celebrate great triumph … so on behalf of the township we wish you the greatest of luck and may Allah look down upon your new home and provide you with a place of health, well-being and luck.”
