May the peace, the mercy, and the blessings of Allah be upon you. Welcome to Al-Huda Islamic Center of Athens. We, the community of Al-Huda Islamic Center, welcome you and your families to our place of worship and gathering. Please feel free to come by and say hello and learn more about the way we worship Allah (the One God) and follow the example of His last prophet Muhammed (Peace Be Upon Him).
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Alhamdulillah!! We are pleased to inform you that after a long and arduous vetting process by the Athens Clarke County (ACC) on our proposed Site Development Plan (SDP) and Civil Plan of a 10,500 square foot, 3-storied mosque building at the current Al-Huda site submitted by Engineer Abe Abouhamdan of ABE Consulting, Inc., has been approved by the ACC.
Thirty years ago this Al-Huda masjid was built on this piece of prime commercial land close to the UGA primarily for Muslim students and faculty members who could access the mosque by bus or by foot. By the Grace of Almighty, this masjid is about to get a major facelift and expansion, inshaAllah. Our focus will be to raise funds for this purpose by involving everybody through the General Assembly
Uthman ibn Affan reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, "Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, then Allah will build for him a house like it in Paradise." (Source: Sahih al-Bukharī 439, Sahih Muslim 533)
The estimated cost of the 3-storried building of 10,500 SF would be about 1.5- 2 M dollars. We appeal to you all to donate generously to buy a part of this House of Allah either for yourself or for your loved ones. Here is the mosque rebuilding account for direct deposit of your tax deductible donations:
