Help Re-Open Masjid Dar Al-Hijrah

The fire claimed the lives of three people and injured another thirteen. It also destroyed residential apartments and a grocery store. Masjid Dar Al-Hijrah started operating in 1998 as a small rented space but expanded until the entire building was purchased in 2006. The Masjid had capacity for over three hundred worshipers.
