As-Salaamu Alaikum and a belated Eid-e-Ghadeer Mubarak to all. Special thanks to Maulana Hussain Nawab for delivering a terrific speech on the importance of Eid-e-Ghadeer and the numerous benefits of one of the greatest event in the history of Islam. He emphasized the importance of performing prayers and fasting on this holy day. May Allah (swt) give us a long life to take advantage of this day and gain the rewards that are truly countless.

Thanks for the participants who cooked scrumptious dinner and desserts. Special thanks for Br. Murtaza and Sohail Khani who had finished mowing the center before any of the guests had arrived making the place look so beautiful. May Allah (swt) shower His Grace and Blessings on the folks who had their valuable weekends to keep our center so vibrant.

For those who may not be aware that the Sunday Enrichment Program (formerly known as the Sunday school) has started its Fall Semester. Registration is open and the volunteer teachers would be glad to add your students in one of three levels. Please sign in next Sunday before 11 am class starts to avoid any disruption. For additional information regarding the program/curriculum, please contact Zohra Hussaini or Jameel Agha on Sunday.

Finally, the Asphalt Repair fundraising is progressing albeit slowly. The project includes repairs, resealing, resurfacing, and striping the Center’s parking lot which is expected to cost approximately $72,000. So far, we have received over $712. We would like to collect the remaining amount on the upcoming Eid-e-Mubahela planned for Saturday, September 16th as well as during the month of Muharram to meet the desired amount. Before the surface deteriorates to the point of no-return, please donate generously so the project may start soon. Thanks in advance. May Allah reward you greatly and increase your wealth manifold, ameen.
