Why do a bad deed .....!!!? WHAT OUR NEIGHBOURS SAY RE OUR PARKING
This is a email from our neighbors
I'm happy to see that you are able to reopen. However, please please PLEASE send out a reminder to your patrons to be respectful of local neighborhoods when they park.
You might remind them that there is AMPLE parking by the park that is LEGAL. It's really only an extra 2-3 minutes (at most) of walking but for some reason they continue to insist on parking next to no parking signs, turning around in our yards and driveways, knocking over our mailboxes, backing down our already narrow street (which is U shaped so they could just go straight).
There are many many very pricey houses being built in this neighborhood right now and I'm worried that we will end up turning into a gated community (which we no one wants but may be willing to do to fix this problem) because they continue to not follow Fairfax county parking laws.
I know you are busy during the traffic time and cannot witness it first hand, but it's really quite dangerous to walk on our street or even try to drive on our street or at the Shirley gate intersection during your worship.
Please please remind them and maybe make other suggestions. Maybe a shuttle system? I don't know, but I am worried about a continued bad relationship between locals and your establishment. I really don't want people to think poorly of Islam because of this ridiculous situation but for many of my neighbors this is the only experience they have with the islamic religion and culture. It is so sad.
I love what you put on your website
Why do a bad deed on your way to do a good deed!!!?
but maybe a direct email reminder would be more effective?
I know there has been a large gap because of the virus and people are excited to get back to "normal" and may have forgotten how important it is to be good ambassadors of their religion.
I believe Fairfax County is planning to have parking enforcement in the area regularly on Fridays in the future until this issue is resolved to abate the potential safety issues.
I hope your first Friday back was a good and safe one. I know many people do follow the rules and I'm so sorry that it reflects badly on everyone that 50 or more do not.
AOA. (From moulana Tareq)
I saw your post and was very sad by the situation.
Just to add my two cents. (Maybe you can copy and past on that group and maybe on the website as well).
This is mandatory to follow all the laws (as long it’s not contradicting with the Islamic laws). Now these laws directly concern with “Haqooq al ibaad “ you know the rights of the peoples. It is said that Allah swt will not forgive the rights of the people unless either the effected person forgive it or the person who violated the right will repay it. So as you know being a Muslim it is a great responsibility on us to follow the laws and respect others (Muslims, non Muslims).
Just like you said “why do a bad deed on your way to do a good deed”.
It is a sin when you don’t follow parking rules. When you park on a no parking place. When you block other people’s driveway. When you double park. When you park on fire lane. Etc etc etc.
This is a very sad reality that (non Muslims didn’t harm Islam as much as we the Muslims harm Islam). May Allah swt give us guidance.

Can you not see those who deny that the day of Judgement is coming
They are amongst those who chase away orphans (weak and needy) with harshness
And they are amongst those who discourage the feeding of the poor
Also be sorry for those of the worshippers amongst you who are neglectful of their prayers
