Alhamdulillah, are pleased to announce that ICMC's offer to purchase 5.89 acres for the anticipated Islamic Center of McLean County has been accepted by the seller.

Alhamdulillah by Grace of Allah we were able to close down on Phase 1 with the purchase of second lot (425 Olympia Dr - Lot 39 - 2.85acre). We are in the early stages of Phase 2 - Construction of multipurpose hall. We request you to donate generously and take part in this project.

We are seeking your support eagerly in completing this task. Every Sajda and teaching that is made in this Masjid in the decades to come will testify to the support you gave in building this house of Allah (swt). This will not just be a Sadaqa, but remember, it is Sadaqa Jariya, an eternal source for Allah's blessings for us and families. Your support is urgently needed to complete this project. Please donate today and do not let go off an opportunity to be part of this effort to bring a place of worship and joy to the whole community of Mclean County.

The design for the ICMC floor plan will be underway soon. We will be reaching out to couple of engineers and architects in our neighboring Muslim communities. Long term development plans envision a school, a banquet hall, children's playground, funeral facility, recreational areas (a soccer field, a tennis court, a basketball court, and a picnic area) to serve the community needs for gathering and prospering In sha Allah.

You can make the intention for this continuous charity (Sadaqa Jariya) to go to yourself, a family member, or a deceased loved one. May Allah (swt) reward you for your generous donations to this noble project.
