Approximately 10 years ago, a few dedicated members of our community banded together and established a masjid in a house in Johnson County, Kansas. Over the years, the Muslim population of Johnson County has grown exponentially, and these makeshift facilities no longer meet the needs of the congregation. The community soon thereafter , had embarked on an ambitious project to build a new masjid from ground up. Allah SWT blessed the community with the adjacent land at an opportune time and price, giving much needed space to construct additional parking. After receiving the construction permit from the city of Overland Park, we immediately started the competitive bidding process.

The site development was completed, followed by laying the foundation and construction of the basement. This was followed by erection of the prefabricated walls.
Having completed the outer shell, we are now in the process of finishing the interior. Alhamdolillah, we are very close to occupancy. Three levels are almost complete. These include a mezzanine level for the exclusive use of our sisters. Great thought was given to planning this level. It includes their own bathrooms, changing rooms, wudu area and a sound proof cry room with a glass wall to provide continuity with the main prayer area.
The main level was designed to allow for maximum space for praying. Great emphasis was placed in separating the clean “Pak” areas from the “Najis” area.
We are now at a critical juncture. Your help is crucial in moving forward. Under no circumstances do we want this project to stall. We are heavily in debt and are appealing to your generosity. Every penny that you can spare allows us to move this noble project towards completion and at the same time provides debt relief to ICJC. Click here for 360 degree view video.
