Farmington–April 9–The Tawhid Center has undergone a major transformation over the past few years, yet TMO has not looked at the center since completion of its construction work.
The prayer hall, the subject of years of fundraising and construction, now can hold about 500 people on the lower level, plus another 150 on the mezzanine level. The womenâ€™s area can hold 500 people–in total the mosque can hold about 1,200 people. The dining area can accommodate 400 people and is available to the community for events at only $800 (for rental and cleaning fee combined)–this provides the luxury of being able to pray in immediate proximity of your event.
Says Asim Khan of the Tawhid Center, â€œThis has been a big hit actually, it is a central location… We provide the tables and chairs, and [clients] provide the cutlery and food.â€
The schools at Tawhid continue, with about 24 hifz students ($400 per child per month), about 30 students in the evening maktab school ($100 per month), about 70 students in the Sunday school ($50 per month). The summer school is planned to open in July, and will cost about $300 for the entire summer of 6-8 weeks, 10AM to 4PM, Monday thru Thursday.
May 21 Tawhid has invited best-selling author Haroon Siddiqui. On June 11 they plan to hold an open house and provide free health care services.
