The 1MM Library Initiative

Library and Research Center of Western Pennsylvania, Supervised by Moosaa Richardson

Support

The 1MM Library and Islamic Research Center of Western Pennsylvania is non-profit initiative under the direct supervision of Moosaa Richardson, in cooperation with the administration and community of Al-Masjid al-Awwal (the First Muslim Mosque) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

We thank Allaah for the generous support from all the friends and supporters of the 1MM Library all over the world. So far, together, by the Permission of Allaah alone, we have been able to pay off the rather expensive shipping fees ($5,528 USD) and begin our local preparations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to receive and set up the library at the masjid, in shaa’ Allaah.

For those who recognize this as a unique opportunity to take part in the building and maintenance of a massive ongoing charity and wish to contribute for the sake of Allaah in making rare resources of Islaamic knowledge available to American Muslims, they may contact Moosaa Richardson, the supervisor of the project, directly at the following email:
