Palos Islamic Center Final Phase "Parking Lot Development"

Your Small $10 Donation Can Make A Big Impact

Assalamu Alaikum Warahamatu Allah Wabarakatuh,

In these blessed days of Ramadan, we ask Allah that you and your family are in the best of iman and health.

Alhamdilillah, thanks to your support, we are pleased to announce the projected opening of the Palos Islamic Center (PIC) will be July of this year.

The PALOS ISLAMIC CENTER property was purchased in 2017 with extensive renovations needed. Many obstacles and challenges beyond our control had to be overcome. The rules and ordinances of the village, the county, and other agencies made it challenging to move forward. From the initial plans approval to the execution, we had to carefully maneuver through codes and requirements. Every step of the way, we worked with the mayor and village staff for approval and to ensure that we don’t find ourselves back peddling. 

Other major challenges that we overcame include:

- COVID-19
- Street permits from the village, the county, and IDOT
- Fire department approval of the plan took over a year with several revisions.
- Approval from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, that took over 18 months
- A tree removal plan that was both costly and time consuming. This involved hiring an arborist to provide an assessment of the trees, a tree survey, and an environmental study to determine the impact on wildlife.

The last and current phase is construction of the parking lot. It was extended into the winter months when conditions did not allow for progress. Due to the late winter storm in February, work was further delayed to late March. We had hoped PIC would be opened for Ramadan, but that was not possible. 

With the blessings and guidance of Allah, as well as, your continued support and tremendous generosity, PIC will very soon become a reality. PIC will be a place of worship and services for our growing community Inshaa’Allah.

We are optimistic, during this month of Ramadan, you will continue to consider a tax-deductible donation to conclude this distinguished project. An estimated $300,00 is still needed for landscaping, furnishings, equipment, and operations. 

Thank you for your unwavering support. We look forward to seeing you soon at the Palos Islamic Center. 

May Allah reward you greatly.
