I got this as an email forward (many times):
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
Masjid Manhattan is located in the heart of downtown manhattan since 1970s. Today its on the verge of loosing its space because the building is being sold. The masjid can’t buy the building because they don’t have the funds and can’t arrange the required funds through Islamic banking.
The masjid is in dire need of your help.
Nothing is impossible for a person who puts his mind to do something
and Allah helps.
Our goal is to reach 500 thousand people in US and Canada who can only pay 10 dollars each.
Please do the following to save the house of Allah. Lets do what we can and leave the results to Allah.
1) Pay Ten dollars today by making a check payable:
12 Warren St, 2nd Fl, New York, NY 10007
Although its preferred if you make a credit card payment through
masjid’s website but whatever you see fit, please do..
2) Forward this email to Ten people today. This is very important.
Please take the time to forward it today.
3) Make Duaa to Allah that he saves this masjid.
Jazak Allah Khairun,
May Allah (swt) help this community save their masjid. Please donate at least $1 if you can’t donate $10 inshaAllah! They use paypal on the website, so you can do it!
