A Message from the President of ISD
Dear Respected Community Members
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh
The fundraising event scheduled for Saturday evening carries a special significance due to participation by Shiekh Yusuf Estes, an internationally renowned Muslim scholar. ISD is glad to be able to provide this opportunity to the community to meet and directly hear from a scholar of such a high stature, which he has earned by his significant contributions in spreading the message of Islam. We are looking forward to seeing most of the community availing this opportunity and actively participating in the event.
ISD holds three (3) fundraising events each year: Ramadan, End of Year, and the one to support its school, IAD around this time of year. Accordingly, the main objective of the fundraising this Saturday is to raise funds to support IAD. However, due to some much needed repair and maintenance work for ISD property such as repair of parking lot, we also plan to raise funds for them. We request all of you to donate generously. May Allah (SWT) bless you and your families with best rewards for your continued support. Should you have any questions or need more information about the event or ISD / IAD operations, please do not hesitate to discuss them with me.
