New Development

The Muslim Community has been growing steadily. We have been gradually updating, renovating and making changes as necessary to accomodate for space. 

We launched a new fundraising campaign on May 24th 2019. We are looking for 50 volunteers to help raise $15,000 /$25,000/ $50,000 /$100,000 by each volunteer. The initial target is to raise $750,000 by Eid-ul Adha Insha'Allah.

 

Developments thus far

  • In January, 2019, an IP security system with five cameras was installed at ISV masjid to provide security to all those who come to the masjid and to protect masjid property and its contents. Three cameras in the main hall to monitor activities, one in ladies’ area. One camera in the main hall has audio and video recording capability. ISBV Shura is working on using it for live streaming traweeh prayers, in sha Allah.

 

  • In January, 2019, washrooms were renovated for both men and ladies, a new toilet added and an ablution steel basin added for men’s washroom. These have helped to facilitate performing ablution for the Jumuah crowd.
