Building Blocks of Islam

Ramadan 2017

Join us on Sunday, June 4, 2017 for our 11th Annual Ramadan Fundraising Dinner

They love those who emigrated to them and find not any want in their breasts of what the emigrants were given but give [them] preference over themselves, even though they are in need. And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul—it is those who will be the successful.” – Surah Al-Hashr, 59:9

This year more than ever, it is important that we make room for everyone; in our homes, in our community, and in our country. The refugees, new Muslims, and others in need have rights over us all—let us fulfill them in a manner pleasing to Allah Most High.

Make sure you can attend our very special iftar this Ramadan as we strive to make Minnesota a welcoming Home for All.

We are excited to announce that Imam Zia Sheikh will be traveling from Texas to speak at our iftar. Imam Zia is a renowned scholar and teacher and is currently Imam of the Islamic Center of Irving, in Texas. He has been an instructor with Bayyinah Institute and Mishkah University, among others.

Our Mission

To aid self development, promote activism, and bolster community building

A 501-c3 non profit organization, Building Blocks provides a platform for all concerned Muslims to practically apply Islamic principles and work together for the community’s advancement through the provision of social, educational, and religious services, as well as outreach programs to build bridges of mutual understanding with other communities.

Our Social Services are open to all people regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, creed or any other discriminatory factor prohibited by law.

Our Vision and Values

“Community Building through enlivening the Sunnah”

We strive to enliven the example of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) and the early generations of Muslims who “lived Islam” in every aspect of their lives. Islam provides the perfect roadmap for moral and social advancement and we envision vibrant and healthy environments where Islam’s lessons on charity are embraced and transformed into action on a daily basis for the good of all.

Sound communities are created out of shared effort and responsibility – each action by or for the sake of each individual is like a “building block” that reinforces the community. Thus, we aim to bring Muslims from all backgrounds to work together for the community’s well-being through means that are supported by authentic Islamic teachings – to enjoin good, help those in need, and above all, follow the commandments of Allah (Subhanahu wa Taala)

Every Cent Counts in Making a Difference!
