The Islamic Society of Greater Springfield (ISOGS) is the only Masjid in Springfield, Illinois. We are a religious, charitable, and civic organization committed to providing Islamic services to our Muslim community and humanitarian outreach for our non-Muslim neighbors. ISOGS consists of more than 30 ethnicities and serves as a place where diversity is embraced. Over the past few years, our population has grown exponentially and the current Masjid is insufficient. In 2013, we purchased six acres of land to construct our An-Noor Community Center to accommodate our growing population.
The objectives of this project are as follows:
- To have a full time Islamic school
- To hold Interfaith events
- To have a fully functional community center
- To have an after school program for children and teenagers
- To have a spacious place to hold Eid prayers
- To hold Iftars and Tarweh prayers.
Please open your hearts to support the An-Noor Center and Islamic School.
The Messenger of Allah, Upon Whom Be Peace said: “The wealth of a man/women will not diminish from giving charity.”
An-Noor will serve the growing community as
the hub for our Islamic education – including:
•schools and afterschool programs
•youth sports activities
•halaqa and lectures
An-Noor Center will also serve:
•Ramadan Taraweeh prayers
Please take this opportunity and donate generously for the upcoming Community Center/School building project.
The Prophet ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: sadaqah jariyah (such as a well of clean water, masjid, hospital, Islamic charitable organization, etc.), knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (the deceased)” [Muslim].
