bissmillah and ayah arabic“So keep your duty to Allah as best you can, and listen, and obey, and spend; that is better for your souls. And whoever is saved from his own greed, such are the successful. If you loan Allah a goodly loan, He will multiply it for you and forgive you. And Allah is Most Appreciative and Forbearing.”
[al-Taghabun, 64: 16 -17]


You may donate to the following causes or projects:

Expansion: The ongoing expansion projects currently are the IONA Cafeteria and the new gated fence to enclose IONA Masjid and Learning Center. The fence will provide the much needed security and prevent and deter crime from happening at our premises. Alhamdulillah, the funding for the fence has been collected already and the fenced wall should be completed soon, in sha Allah. The approximate need for completing the renovation of the IONA Cafeteria is $40,000 and this would complete the current phase of expansion. The next phase is a larger project which is the expansion of IONA Masjid. The plan is to expand the masjid westward to Ryan road which would take away a small part of our parking lot but enable us to add about 6000 square feet of much needed space in the masjid, providing more space for our congregation (jama'ah), especially our sisters. This year we will start collecting funds for this next phase in IONA Center's expansion and our goal for this year is at $100,000. We have done well and expanded much since we started over 12 years ago now, Alhamdulillah. WIth God's help, together we will struggle for a better future and expand our Center to accomodate the needs of our community and our next generations.

Zakatul Mal: Zakatul Mal is collected and strictly distributed to the poor, needy, and any zakat eligible person or cause in our local community.

Zakah for Dawah: A portion of Zakatul Mal may be spent on dawah purposes as it falls in “In the Cause of Allah” category and scholars of Islam have approved this type of zakah. IONA separates the zakah due to the poor and zakah spent on printing brochures and other materials and other related dawah programs.

Masjid Donation: The donations are spent on utilities, maintenance, salaries, dawah, and insurance. IONA’s annual budget is $257,000. Helping us meet the demands of the community is greatly appreciated.

Zakatul Fitr or Fitra: Fitra is $12.00 per person per household. Fitra money has to be paid before the day of Eid ul Fitr. The money collected goes to poor and needy people in our local community.
