From the Desk of the ISGVF Executive Council

As Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

Dear community,

Summer has almost officially started, trees are alive with abundance of leaves once again, the school year is winding down or has ended already, vacations are being planned, and Eid-al-Adha is approaching, Alhamdulillah! This is the time when we may know Muslims near and far who are preparing to make Hajj this year, Insha'Allah. Hajj Mabrouk to them, and we ask them to remember those less fortunate or who have lost loved ones in their Du'as. As you and your loved ones have a safe and beneficial summer Insha'Allah, please look out for summer activities planned by ISGVF as well!

Eid Mubarak!

ISGVF Executive Council

From the Imam

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,

Alhamdulillah, we are now in the last 10 days of Dhul Hijjah, which are the best days of the year! From the things to keep in mind during these days:

  1. To plan to increase in doing righteous deeds during these days. The Prophet ﷺ said, "There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these [ten] days." (Bukhari)
  2. Fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah (9th of Dhul Hijjah - the day before Eid): The Prophet ﷺ said, “Fasting on the day of ‘Arafah; indeed I anticipate that Allah will forgive the sins of the year before it and the year after it.” (Muslim)

May Allah ﷻ accept from of us our good deeds and forgive us for our sins. Ameen!

Wassalamu Alaikum,

Imam Aqib Choudhury
