Welcome to Assafa Islamic Center
Assafa Islamic Center is a not-for-profit, religious and non-political organization. The local Muslim community established the center in 1996. Two years later they acquired a city lot at an auction. it was providing services of five-time prayers, weekend school, and Hifzul Qur’an, in a rented space at 172 Allen St only on a temporary basis. For Jumuah prayer we had to rent a separate space in Mariana Bracetti Community Center, located at 296 E 4th street (Between Ave B & C). So it is crucial to complete the new project to continue the services for the musallies.
The new project is intended for da’wa and interfaith dialogue, expanded prayer space, a NYC Board of Education complaint full time Islamic school, all kinds of religious educational programs, and social services as needed by the community at large……Read More
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah.
I, on behalf of Assafa Islamic Center (Downtown Manhattan)like to request for donations to pay back center’s loan to our brothers and sisters who gave Quard e Hasanah for the construction of Assafa.
As you know,Assafa had started at a tiny store in 1996 in downtown, Manhattan. Soon we bought a vacant lot from NYC auction in 1998. We completed this 6-story complex in May of 2016 and got permanent CO in December 2016.
We spent about $2.7M in construction and most of it was collected as donations over the years.But we had borrowed some money too. Currently we owe about $375,000 in loan and other dues.We are looking forward to have a contribution from you please !Your help is appreciated. May Allah accept all our good deeds.
