The objectives of this proposal are
A survey conducted in July 2015 showed a high demand for a new, larger masjid that would better suit the community's needs for gatherings, security, Eid celebrations, Islamic education, and community outreach. Financial support for the proposed masjid is promising.
American Momin Park, Inc (AMP) will be available for the following religious and community activities
Founding members generously donated and purchased a 5.5 Acre plot of land at 1441 S Farm Road, 133, Springfield, MO 65807 and committed substantial funds to the masjid, community center, Islamic School and cemetery construction. The land is located in the corners (inside) of W Sunshine and W. Bye Pass road classified as Commercial Zone. This area already includes three Christian churches and approval to construct a masjid was also obtained before land purchase. However detailed construction drawings must be approved by Greene County before obtaining a building permit to start construction. See location map for more details.
The proposed masjid is approximately 6000 Square feet area to accommodate 500 people, and it will consist of separate male and female prayer halls, a stay area for people during Arafat, male and female restrooms with wudu areas and a spacious lobby. Two standalone separate buildings are proposed to accommodate a conference/dining multipurpose hall, a full kitchen, a female dining area, storage, a library, school K-12 class rooms, an Imam living room, , and 250-400 paved car parking facilities. One acre land is allocated for Islamic cemetery constructions with fence. Additionally, the facilities and parking areas will include security and safety features such as wireless security alarms, motion detectors, door, window and equipment sensors, fire alarms, fire sprinklers, security cameras with remote monitoring, fencing, and monitoring to protect the masjid from vandalism and theft.
Future plan includes playground for children, adult outdoor basketball court, recreational area, and commercial shops to sell halal items to community thus creating recurring income to masjid operations.
American Momin Park, Inc will be your masjid for several generations. Insha Allah. It purely depends on Springfield Muslim community for its operational support. The Muslim community will be responsible for upkeep of the masjid facilities and grounds. This will require everyone's participation, team work, and generous contributions of funds to the masjid on a regular basis. Community members are responsible for using the facilities for their intended legal activities in a respectful manner.
