The Islamic Society of New River Valley (ISNRV) is a diverse and growing Islamic community based in Blacksburg, VA. Our mission is to serve the Muslims in the New River Valley with a strong sense of community, unity, and educational opportunities for all ages. In addition, the ISNRV provides a desperately-needed space for students to immerse themselves in a spiritually-enriching environment.
A bigger center for an ever-growing community
Alhamdulillah, with the help and blessing of Allah, we have officially closed on the new land next to the current ISNRV facility. This was made possible by the permission and blessing of Allah and Allah made this possible through the incredible effort and generosity of current and previous community members. This is a historic moment for our community and we thank Allah that he gave us the opportunity to be involved. We also want to thank the numerous volunteers who donated their time to making this first phase of our expansion project a reality Alhamdulillah.
Of course, this is the first phase of an ongoing project insha'allah and we appreciate your ongoing du'aa and involvement. The breakdown of finances of the first phase of the project can be found here.
The new 2.26 acres of land will ensure that children will have a place to play, that Eid prayer can be held here instead of in indoor basketball courts, and that parking will be a non-issue for Masjid Al-Ihsan.
We intend to expand the current prayer areas, establish an Islamic school and a daycare center, multipurpose spaces, study spaces, social and recreational spaces with an outdoor jogging path.
Phase II requires the community's input for determining the next course of action. What would you like to see developed first? Fill out this survey and insha'Allah our next planning phase will be directed towards this addition's plans.
Those who spend their wealth [in Allah 's way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly – they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve. (2:274)
This project's next objective is to raise enough funds to start developing the spaces our community desires. Help us reach our goal by pledging a share (or part of a share) and owning a piece of the project, or fund this project by directly donating to ISNRV through Venmo or PayPal!
