    The board has never been changed or elected and no financial report has ever been made public, this itself raises a serious concern over what’s going on inside!!

    I think the translation of the Khutba is great and the brother who does it is putting a lot of efforts into it.

    @Comment number 1.
    You can leave that up to Allah (swt). It is not your place to judge anyone, or their intentions. They will or will not get the ajr based on their intentions which ONLY Allah (swt) knows. However, what the money is used for by the Masjid is something great and will change the Muslim community in Phoenix inshAllah.

    I think Allah already made it clear that liquor is HARAM and all its profit is HARAM as well. Therefore the question here is not what someone’s intention or Ajer but why is ICCP accepting HARAM money to build place of worship for us Muslims.

    Isn’t it ironic that the new ICCP project was mainly paid for by liquor stores money. Not to say there is halal money donated by others. You can ask board members and the Imam and they will try to justify this endlessly.

    regarding the issue of liquor stores money, in the beginning, it is unappropriated way to attack a mosque which is a house of Allah with this kind of acquisition. first of all, it is not right that all or most of the money used to build the new mosque came from liquor stores owners. Most of the money came from other donors that they earn from lawful. Second, if some of the money came from people earned from unlawful, you have to know that there is no such thing called “Haram money” but there is “haram earning money” which means that the money it self is not the “Haram” but the way of earning the money, and when the money transfer from hand of any donor to another hand, it turned back to it’s original circumstance, which is the lawful, and the sin will be on the person how he earned it if it is “Haram”, there is no cash money stamped by term called “Haram money”, it is like if you do some handy work for him and you know his unlawful source of income and you get paid for your work, the money you get is “halal” because it transferred back to it’s original circumstance. however, we still encourage those people to change their source of income and asked Allah for forgiveness. Third, there is an Imam at that mosque and he is knowledgeable, and the “Fatwa” should be up to him, not every one can put himself as a “Mufti”.

    I love ICCP! I’ve been going there ever since I was knee high to a grass hopper, and I absolutely love it. We have a wonderful Imam, community, and board members alhamdulillah. May Allah reward them all for making ICCP such an amazing masjid and an incredible environment to pray. :)
