SCHAUMBURG – An Illinois local mosque has fulfilled the Christmas wish of a young American boy who made a holiday wish list which included making donation to the mosque.
The story started last November when Jackson visited a Mosque open day at Masjid Al Huda along with hundreds of other American non-Muslims, IlmFeed reported.
Upon returning, he made a holiday list of things to do in which he included items he wanted.
The list included, “Donations to the mosque we went to.”
When members of the mosque learned about Jackson’s generous pledge, they paid a visit to Jackson and fulfilled one of his other wishes, gifting him a Hot Wheels AI system.
More than 600 of visitors showed up at the Open Mosque Day at Midwest Islamic Center 1081 Irving Park Rd, Schaumburg, IL 60193, last November 23.
The Midwest Islamic Center, commonly known as Masjid Al-Huda, is the only Islamic Center in Schaumburg, Illinois.
Many of the visitors gave remarks to organizers “The event was wonderful! Thank you so much for your hospitality. It was an honor to be there with you all.
