From the Desk of the Executive Council


As Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,


Days are getting shorter and the weather is getting cooler as the season is changing and leaves will soon fall, if Allah wills. Alhamdulillah, many indoor and outdoor activities took place in the warm weather.  Our Imam continues to plan for opportunities that help keep our Iman strong, as you will read about below.


To support ISGVF's many activities or start new ones, ISGVF is always looking for volunteers. You can sign up on the ISGVF website or simply email council@isgvf.com to learn more on how you can help. But most of all, it's not just children who are now students in school learning, it's also adults who should never stop learning our Deen - so please take advantage of what ISGVF offers.  


May Allah Subhana Wa Ta'alaa give us Tawfeeq and protect us from ignorance. Ameen.

From the Imam

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,


Alhamdulillah, as we move into the fall and into the academic year, ISGVF is also excited to bring some great educational opportunities for the community! Along with Peace Academy and Weekend School restarting, we are excited to announce our Youth Study Circle, for ages 16+. The study will be on the 40 Hadith Collection of Imam Nawawi - building a connection with these essential prophetic narrations along with deriving lessons from them. Please check our website for more information. We also held a successful 5 week intensive course on the Introduction to Fiqh. May Allah reward all those that attended, Ameen! We will be following that up with another intensive course: Tafseer of Surah Al-Fatihah & the last 10 Surahs. InshaAllah, this course can help us understand the essential messages of these Surahs and help us focus when reciting them in prayer. You can register for this course on our website.


Lastly, as the school year begins, we ask Allah ﷻ that He grant success to all those attending school. We ask that He protects them and grants them goodness in this world and in the next. Ameen!


Wassalamu Alaikum,

Imam Aqib Choudhury
