What our scholars are saying

Shaykh Dr. Husain Abdul Sattar

Sacred Learning Center Chicago, IL

“This project should have been started at least 20 years ago for the Chicagoland Muslims. I am happy to see that some masajid have the vision now, to undertake this project. It is very much needed!”

Shaykh Muhammed Shirazi

Islamic Oasis Chicago, IL

“These graves that we are asking the brothers and sisters to sponsor, to help support, to help buy, to help get this land, not only is it an investment for yourself but its sadaqa-e-jaria in ways you cannot imagine. Imagine the people who cannot afford these graves, imagine the people who are in serious need, one of the ways to thank Allah is to support the causes of Allah, the causes of the Ummah of Muhammad (Sallalahu alayhi Wasallam) and one of the best ways is to make that journey to Akhira easy for a Muslim.”
Dr. Misbahuddin Ahmed

Darussalam Foundation Lombard, IL

“It has been my dream for many decades to see an “All Muslim Cemetery” for Chicagoland and I am very happy to see that it will come true. We are happy to support this project in any way possible.”
