In Memory of Br. Tauquir Warsi

Posted on Monday, January 22, 2024 6:39 pm

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un – Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return

With profound sadness and a heavy heart, we announce the passing of a cherished member of our community, Br. Tauquir Warsi.  Tauquir Bhai was a long-time board member of Al-Farooq Masjid of Atlanta, and his departure is a great loss to us all.

Br. Tauquir was not just a member, but a pillar of our commuity.  For many years, he dedicated his strength and efforts to building and nurturing the Islamic community in Atlanta. His unwavering commitment, deep faith, and tireless work have left an indelible mark on the hearts of those he touched.

The Janazah (funeral prayer) will be held on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at Al-Farooq Masjid, at 2 PM. We invite the community to join us in paying respects to a man who was much more than a board member – he was a beacon of light and guidance for many.

Let us come together to pray for our brother, asking Allah to grant him the highest place in Jannah and to provide comfort and solace to his family during this difficult time.

Asalaamu Alaikum!

Alhamdulilah the Masjid facility opened its doors over a decade ago and is in need of maintenance and repairs to carry the community into the next decade.  The project list for 2023 includes:

  • Replacing carpets in both prayer areas (Brother's and Sister's side) - $100k ($75k collected as of 7/21)
  • Replacing aged Audio/Visual systems - $60k
  • Repairing/upgrading the lighting in the main Musullah - $20k
  • Repairing/replacing the roof - $90k

Other items should funds permit include:

  • Pressure washing the entire outside (focusing on stained areas) - $9-$15k
  • Repairing the 2 fiberglass domes - $35k - $45k
  • Front parking lot repaving - $25k
  • Fence and railing repairs - $10k
  • School wheelchair/handicap ramp - $9k
  • Landscaping (tree trimming & removal) - $9k

In total, the Masjid would require between $350,000 to $400,000 to complete all of these pending projects.  Alhamdulilah with the help of the community, the Masjid has approximately $60,000 in savings that is dedicated to these repairs.  Your contribution and volunteerism are greatly appreciated!
