Our mosque was burned down on the night of Eid. Help us rebuild and take a stand against bigotry.


The Night Before Eid

On Sunday night, September 11, we began to prepare as a community for the Eid prayer - an annual celebration to mark the completion of the Hajj pilgrimage for the Muslim community. It was scheduled for the morning, and festivities had already begun that night. 

We closed the mosque up for the night, then just an hour later we got a call from the Fort Pierce police department saying there had been a fire. At first it was thought it was just an accident, but as we reviewed the surveillance footage we were heart broken to see the fire was intentionally set. There are a minimum of $100,000 in damages reported. 



Standing together in difficult times

Our Imam and community leader, Imam Rahman, was actually away on the Hajj with his wife and other members of the community when this incident occurred, making this even more difficult. We will be updating this page as the rebuilding project continues on but we have been amazed by the outpouring of support from our neighbors, friends and strangers from across the country and world. 

We will be using all funds raised to rebuild the center or possibly open a new one, especially if the fire damage is too extensive. Damages are reported to be over $200,000 and we do not have insurance.
