Support Islamic Society of Colorado Springs Build New Mosque & Center

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahamathullahi Wa Barakathuhu.

Colorado Springs is the 40th most populous city in United States with 478,000 population and is the second largest city in the State of Colorado. It is home to several American military institutions: US Air Force Academy, NORAD, Space Command, Ft. Carson, etc., and US Olympic Training Center. US News & World Report ranked Colorado Springs the 9th best place to live in the US for 2023-2024. Our current facility, repurposed from a laundromat in 1996, has served us admirably. It can no longer adequately accommodate the evolving and diverse needs of our community. The Muslim community in Colorado Springs has been growing steadily, and with it comes the pressing need for a dedicated space that can accommodate our religious, educational, and social needs. The nearest Islamic center/Mosque is an hour away in Denver, CO.
Please support us in building our masjid/Islamic center by donating generously to this campaign and sharing on social media!

History and Need
Colorado Springs is the second most populous city in Colorado. The Muslim community here has been a steadily growing community for many years but has never been able to afford to build a masjid.Friday – The two Jumu’ah prayers are crowded

  • Fasting – During Ramadan Iftars and night prayers, the place is very congested and inconvenient
  • Special worship – There is no place for worship such as i’tikaf during Ramadan because space is being used for breaking the fast
  • Residential – The current masjid is in a residential neighborhood and masjid traffic and parking, noise and movement is very inconvenient for the surrounding neighbors
  • Islamic school – Sunday school takes place in the prayer area, which is highly inconvenient and uncomfortable
  • Parking – It is a huge sore point for the congregation and the neighbors because the building was never meant to hold so many occupants
  • Dawah – Our current situation makes it difficult for us to offer any kind of outreach programs and limits our dawah resources.
  • Al-Nisa – The sister’s area is smaller than the men’s area and is not nearly as nice. They share this area with the children.
  • Youth – The youth are desperate for activities which larger masjids usually offer.

With a new masjid, we plan to alleviate all of these issues and have a center that can accommodate a growing community. We are also hoping that many of the Muslims who are deterred from attending the masjid, due to its condition, will rejoin the community and become active, Insha’Allah!

Our Plan
Through the collective efforts of our Colorado Springs community members, we were able to successfully fundraise close to half a million dollars, enabling us to acquire/pay-off a 5-acre land for our new mosque/community center.
The next stage is the construction of 11,000 sqft facility that will cost 5 million dollars that will include, adequate prayer areas for men and women, a couple of classrooms and office room plus the restrooms.

  • Allah says “Spend (in Charity) O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you”(Hadith Qudsi)
  • This is an investment in your hereafter and for the next generation of Muslims.
  • No amount is insignificant (if you can only give $1dollar, then please do so)
  • When you spend in the cause of Allah, Allah will multiply it 10-700x times and even more.
    “Who’s the one who will loan Allah a goodly loan, so he will multiply it for him, and for him is a noble reward” (57:11)
