Please support these Zakat eligible Austin based local charities and opportunities supported by Islamic Center of Lake Travis

Greater Austin Muslim Relief Committee

Muslim Support Services (website to come soon)

MSO (Muslim Support Organization), MSO is a nonprofit organization and is in process of achieving 501(c)(3) status from IRS. MSO manages Muslim Cemetery at CookWalden Muslim only Cemetery Section located on I35 in Pflugerville. It is lead by Mohsin Lari for management and operation of the Cemetery and Dr. Junaid Siddiqui and Zahid Maniya are part of the team.

While Cook Walden sells their regular plots at $6000, MSO has been able to establish a bulk purchase of 224 for their final phase for Muslim cemetery close to the city at $3200 for our community. Currently, MSO have fallen behind in monthly payments (there is no interest charged for the monthly payments), the total amount that we have to pay to CookWalden is $45,000.00 (which is the payment for 14 plots) become current.

So, we are requesting the community to help us to pay this outstanding balance so that we don’t lose the contract. Here is how you can help
1. Buy one or more lots for your family
2. Buy one or more lots to help us and we will buy it back in the future
3. Donate one or more lots
4. Donate any amount of money

This cemetery will be used by current and future generations, so please help as much as you can. Please contact one of team members, if you have any questions
