Important Update from Tracy Islamic Center

Alhumdullilah! Today as a Muslim Community we have achieved a very important milestone towards building a Masjid in the Tracy/Mountain House area.

Here is the update:

1- The escrow for 21400 S. Corral Hollow Road property has been closed and now this property has been transferred to Tracy Islamic Center.

2- The payment of $1844.79/month as “purchase contract extension fee” has been stopped.

3- The seller has agreed to carry $160K loan which will be paid to him in 3 years (on a quarterly basis) with no interest.

As you know we have already obtained the site approval from San Joaquin County Planning Commission to build a Masjid at this 2.59 acre corner lot (112,820 square feet lot).

Commercial water well is already installed and the septic system design has also been approved.

Now what is next:

A- To work on fundraising.

It is a responsibility of every Muslim in Tracy/Mountain House community to spread this message. Please donate generously, every penny counts.

B- To restart the building construction permit process

We will work on all possible options (scale down/scale up/in multiple phases etc.) to use this Masjid property as soon as possible. (Building construction permit process will complete Insha-Allah in 6 ~ 9 months.

This milestone could not have been achieved with out the help from ALLAH (SWT), your generous donations, and your duas. May ALLAH (SWT) accept our efforts to build a Masjid in this part of the world.


Please remember:

“Whoever builds a Masjid for Allah, Allah will build for them a Palace in Paradise” - Bukhari & Muslim


The Management team of Tracy Islamic Center really appreciates your support with your generous donations to build a Masjid.


Jazak-Allah,
