Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu our beloved brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces,
The blessed last ten nights are upon us. We at the Islamic Association of Raleigh (IAR) are reminded of the great blessings and opportunities that come with this special time of year. This is a time for reflection, spiritual growth, and most importantly, giving back to our community.
The IAR is proud to serve as a hub for the Muslim community in the Raleigh area. During Ramadan, we work tirelessly to provide a space for worship, learning, and community engagement. We host iftars, Taraweeh prayers, and other events that bring our community together in the spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood. Throughout the past year we have organized over 185 programs and events for our community, hosted numerous world-renowned speakers such as Sh. Yasir Birjas, Sh. Mohammad Elshinawy, Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed, Ustadh Ubaydullah Evans and are thrilled to add Sh. Saif Morad as our new Resident Scholar. Additionally, the IAR campus has seen marked capital improvements such as a new canopy, revitalized community room and a tremendous expansion to the cemetery, quadrupling capacity.
However, we cannot do this alone. We rely on the generous support of our community to help us continue our important work. By making a donation to the IAR during Ramadan, you can help us to continue to serve the needs of our community and make a positive impact in the lives of those around us.
Your donation will help us to provide food, clothing, and shelter to those in need, support educational programs, and maintain our facilities so that we can continue to serve the community for years to come. Additionally, your donation during this blessed month will earn you the multiplied rewards of giving during Ramadan.
We ask that you consider making a donation to the IAR this Ramadan season. No amount is too small, and every donation is appreciated. May Allah reward you for your generosity and may this Ramadan be a source of blessing and spiritual growth for us all.
Please join us at our Jumuah Fundraiser on Friday, April 14th across all three shifts or during Taraweeh on Saturday, April 15th. Alternatively, you may click either button below to make a general donation or fulfill your Zakat obligation.
