BCMA undertakes Chilliwack Masjid Project


On June 26th, 2022 over 300 people attended the Chilliwack Masjid Project Fundraiser organized by BCMA Chilliwack Chapter lead Dr. Osama Ebesh and his committee. Imam Islamullah Khokhar opened the program which was followed by the BCMA president Asad Gondal who conducted the fundraising part by pleading with other BCMA branches to also take part in the initiative. Over $374,000 of donation and Qarde Hasana was raised by the grace of Allah. 

On August 28th, 2022 The B.C. Muslim Association by Special General Meeting held at Surrey Jamea Masjid passed a resolution to purchase a new property for the growing Chilliwack community. 

Br Asad Gondal said, “With the help of The Almighty and with the generous donations of our Muslim communities across BC, we were collectively able to raise more than $600,000 for the purchase of this new property, which is a church as of now, but InshaAllah, conversions will be made soon after everything is finalized.”

He further stated, “Chilliwack is projected to become a central hub connecting the lower mainland to interior BC. This decision was long coming and I am happy the Chilliwack community has finally received what they have been waiting for.” 

May Allah reward these brothers and their families, accept their generous donation, put Barakah in their wealth and grant them endlessly more.
