Update on Al-Iman School Expansion Discussion

Dear IAR Community,

I hope this message finds you well. I wanted to provide you with a follow-up regarding the discussions we had last week on the Al-Iman Weston Parkway expansion during our public forums. Your active participation and engagement in these discussions are greatly appreciated.

In light of the importance of this matter, the Shura held an emergency meeting on Monday, October 2nd, to carefully consider the feedback and input we received from the community. We understand the urgency to expand, the impact it has on our community, and we are committed to finding the best path forward for Al-Iman School. Further discussions are planned at our next regularly scheduled Shura meeting this Sunday October 8th.

During the meeting, several options were  discussed, and we are currently exploring various possibilities to address the expansion needs of Al-Iman. Rest assured that the leadership at IAR considers the expansion of Al-Iman School as our top priority, and we are fully committed to working as efficiently as possible to find a viable solution that aligns with our greater community’s needs and values.

I want to assure you that we will keep you informed throughout this process. We understand that timely updates are crucial, and we are committed to providing you with periodic news as it becomes available. We value your input and involvement in this journey, and we want to ensure that you are well-informed every step of the way.

If you have any questions or concerns related to the Al-Iman expansion or any other matters, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected]. I am here to address your inquiries on behalf of the Shura, and your feedback is important to us.

Once again, thank you for your continued support and engagement in our community’s development. Together, we will work towards a solution that reflects the collective aspirations and needs of our community.
