Fayetteville St. Masjid Project:

Alhamdulillah, upon approval of the Civil Plan for the Fayetteville St. Masjid Project by the City of Durham, we now have the NCDOT approval!  We expect that the preparation for the Fayetteville St. Masjid building construction will begin as soon as we are out of COVID-19 restrictions by the grace of Allah SWT. Meanwhile, our architects are working with a General Contractor to monitor the construction market to help them initiate pre-construction services when the situation gets better.
