The Toowoomba Mosque was established in 2014 converted from an old Church. But it was soon burned by an arson attack in 2015.
The mosque was the victim of hate crime in an otherwise peaceful and harmonious community of Toowoomba.
Efforts were made to replace the burnout structure with a purpose-built mosque for the community and approval was promptly given by the local council to go ahead.
The construction work is now underway at an estimated cost of $900,000, of which there is a shortfall is $570,000.
This will be the only mosque in the city/region catering for around 2000 Muslims. A full-time Imam has been teaching around 100 children during the after hour/weekend Madrasa.
Muslims in Toowoomba need support and dua from the generous Muslim community in order to complete this project. Please donate.
