$150,000 Loan (Qarza-e-Hasna)
By the grace of Allah, the acquisition of the NW Islamic Centre land has taken place on October 31, 2011. 20 acres of land have been purchased and fully paid the sum of 1.7 Million dollars.

Yesterday, we were short of $150,000 from our target outstanding balance. But by the blessings of Allah, two honorable community members who did not want their names to be mentioned, came forward and provided a loan (Qarza-e-Hasna) to us to complete the amount needed for the purchase of the land on time, and to bring joy to the whole community. May Allah Bless them and reward all donors, volunteers, members and managements for their contributions and efforts.

We urge the community to donate generously to pay back this loan. Please ACT NOW and be part of this instrumental and outstanding achievement for our future generations.

Our Social Responsibility

In Islam, taking care of the poor and needy and alleviating suffering of people is both an individual responsibility of everyone who has means, however, meager they may be as well as the prime responsibility of the government. This social responsibility is the top most responsibility for individuals and society.

The Quran emphasizes that helping poor is not doing them a favor, but it is doing one's duty and fulfilling their right. In the following verses from different places from the Quran, among the qualities of the true believers (Muslims) are;

* They prefer others over themselves even if they themselves are in need.
* In their wealth is the right of needy and deprived.
* Who gives his favorite possessions for the love of Allah to those close to him, to orphans, to the
  poor and to the visitors.
* They feed the poor, the orphans and the prisoners for the love of Allah.

Eid Sacrifice: Udhiyah / Zabiha / Qurbani
Every Eid ul-Adha, millions of Muslims celebrate the faith, humility and devotion displayed by Prophet Ibrahim, peace be upon him, and fulfill the religious obligation of Udhiyah / Zabiha / Qurbani.

 

When Ibrahim (pbuh) received a revelation to sacrifice his son Ismail, they both entrusted themselves to Allah. In exercising this uncompromised faith, Allah replaced Ismail with a ram. Muslims sacrifice an animal on eid day in commemoration of this supreme display of faith, sharing a portion of the meat with the less fortunate.

 

"For this was obviously a trial. And We ransomed him with a momentous sacrifice. And We left (this blessing) for him among generations (to come) in later times. 'Peace and salutation to Abraham!' Thus indeed do We reward those who do right." - (Al-Qur'an, 37:106-110).
