ISNA Masjid Development Committee
Green Initiative
Join Our Annual "Greening Our Ramadan" Campaign

We ask every masjid/Islamic center to adopt and pledge at least the following five practices during the coming Ramadan:

  • Conserve food during Iftar and avoid being wasteful by giving excess food to people in need. Conserve water, especially during wudu.
  • Use relatively quick degradable paper products for Iftar and not at all use styrofoam cups and plates
  • Recycle material, especially plastic water bottles
  • Replace all light bulbs with energy saver bulbs and thus conserve electricity
  • Give a khutbah on the Islamic imperative to conserve and protect the environment

ISNA Seeks Transformative Leader:
Executive Director Search Announced  

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has announced a search for an Executive Director (ED) to lead the organization at a very historic point in its history. The ED is a new position created as a result of the historic overhaul of the organization's bylaws effective January 1, 2018. The former position known as Secretary General has been abolished.

In consultation with the Executive Committee and more broadly the ISNA Board of Directors, the ED will provide visionary and strategic leadership to build on ISNA's history of service to Islam and Muslims in North America. Dr. Asra Ali, chair of the ED search committee emphasizes that "the new ED will use her or his skills and proven senior level management experience to position the organization to achieve excellence in the creation and delivery of programs and services to meet the needs of our diverse and growing Muslim community."
