Assalamu Alaikum

Dear Family & Friends of ICSC, 

Eid Mubarak! We pray that you enjoyed a blessed holiday with your loved ones this past weekend. 

Throughout the month of Ramadan, we fasted, prayed, and celebrated side-by-side as we committed ourselves to renewing our relationships with God. On Sunday, June 25, we culminated this beautiful month with an overflowing congregation at the Pasadena Convention Center where nearly 4,000 community members joined together for Eid al-Fitr prayers. 

Approximately 4,000 men, women and children were in attendance at the Pasadena Convention Center on June 25 for Eid al-Fitr prayers.

Dr. Gasser Hathout delivered an inspirational khutba about the resilience of the American Muslim community - a message that resonated with many. This same message was echoed Congresswoman Judy Chu before she presented the Islamic Center with a Certificate of Congressional Recognition. Reverend Sandy Olewine also addressed the crowd, sharing a few words of support from our friends at First United Methodist Church in Pasadena.  Thank you for joining the ICSC family to make this Ramadan spiritually rejuvenating. 

PLEASE NOTE: The Islamic Center will be closed this weekend (except for prayers). Our Sunday Program will resume on July 9 and weekly classes will start on July 11. 

In peace,
Islamic Center of Southern California

P.S. STAY INFORMED.  Please forward this newsletter to your friends so they can join our mailing list.
