You are cordially invited to our Annual Year End Fundraiser on Saturday, December 5th.
COVID-19 continues to impact all of us in many ways including restricting our physical activities, however Islamic Society of Delaware has responded by ramping up our online presence with quality content to meet the spiritual and religious needs of our community. Now more than ever, we need your support to help us continue to deliver on our vision to be a leader in providing Islamic guidance and services that contribute to the betterment of the Muslim community.
So with great pleasure, we will be welcoming two distinguished guest speakers, Imam Suhaib Webb and Dr. Suzy Ismail for a vibrant conversation on Role of Muslims in Today’s America. In addition, President of Islamic Society of Delaware, Br. Mahamed Allimulla, will provide a community update and Shiekh AbdelHadi Shehata will lead the fundraising efforts with his words of wisdom.
Our Annual Year End Fundraiser serves a critical need in meeting our financial commitments. More than ever before, we need our generous community to come together and help raise funds as we work to build a funeral home, a critical need for our community, and progress on developing our long term vision for ISD and IAD.
Please join us on Saturday, December 5th at 7:30 PM (EST) via Facebook Live, Facebook.com/isdonline.de. We look forward to seeing you there, In-sha’Allah.
