We ended the blessed month of Ramadan with Eid prayers this week, started work on redesigning the Women’s Section of the masjid (knocking down some walls to make it a big hall), and plan to expand the parking lot with donations from the Muslim community ($1,000 for each parking space). Jazakallah Kahir.
