Shock and Grief

Al Aqsa Mosque management, board of directors and its members are horrified by the senseless mass shootings and loss of innocent lives at two Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Our thoughts and prayers are with the friends and families of the victims. We share in their grief and offer sincere prayers of peace and healing.

We also like to recognize and appreciate words of support and kind gesture sent to Al Aqsa Mosque by our brothers and sisters of other faiths; neighbors, churches, synagogues, and other sympathizers. May God bless you!


We want to express our heartfelt gratitude for the presence and generous donations to all at the fundraising dinner on Saturday, March 16th at Ashton Place. As hadith narrates, one who does not thank the people is not thankful to Allah (swt). (referenceed Abu Dawood)

We are pleased, honored and humbled to announce of the success of our fundraising dinner. With the help of Allah (swt) and dedicated team of brothers & sisters we were able to meet our goal, which was to make our Masjid debt-free. Jazakum Allah Khair to all donors and our supporters!
