Dear Community Members: Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
Established in 1977, Nueces Masjid holds a unique position as being the first ever established Masjid in Austin, consistently serving the community’s spiritual needs for well over three decades, Alhamdulillah. Led by our esteemed scholar Mufti Umer Esmail, the Masjid currently serves an ever expanding population of Muslim students at the nearby UT Austin as well as the professionals working in and around downtown Austin.
However, the facilities are over 100 years old and are unable to meet the requirements of a growing Austin population. The Board of Trustees of ICGA has launched an ambitious initiative to reconstruct the Nueces Masjid. Our vision is to create a first of its kind Muslim community center and campus living environment that aims to serve as a destination for worship, spiritual development, learning & awareness, Dawah & outreach and act as an endowment for the Austin Muslims, In-Shaa Allah.
We would like to invite all community members, regardless of where you live or what Islamic Center you attend, to be a part of this effort and help in achieving this objective. We are reaching out to you to help us with your Duas, skills and expertise. We plan to host a series of community updates and planning workshops through the months of November and December In-Shaa-Allah, and request you to join us at these events.
What: Nueces Reconstruction – Community Update
When: 4pm, Sunday, November 22, 2015
Where: Nueces Masjid, 1906 Nueces Street
We look forward to your participation.
Jazakum Allahu Khairun,
