From the Executive Council


As Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,


It is a trying time right now where our Deen is being tested once more. One cannot help but feel hurt with what we are witnessing from afar. The least we can do is make Dua for those suffering and to eradicate evil wherever it exists in the world. Though what is happening is always on our minds, we should continue to be a good example for our community by practicing patience and continue to educate ourselves by taking advantage of programs offered by ISGVF. 


May Allah Subhana Wa Ta'Alaa end the suffering and bring peace and justice to those oppressed. Ameen.

From the Imam

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,


Alhamdulillah, it’s great to see the effort in putting together various activities/programs for the community. These activities are only successful with the continued support from the community. Together we continue to strive to make this community vibrant! 


Our Introduction to Fiqh and Tafseer Intensives was received very well. We have been regularly getting attendance at a level higher than expected. InshaAllah, after the conclusion of the Tafseer Intensive, we plan on having another one on the Essentials of Faith. Details will be out soon, so stay tuned! Also, please encourage those 16+ to attend our study circle that takes place on most Saturdays. The study is being done on the 40 Hadith Collection of Imam Nawawi - building a connection with these foundational narrations of our Prophet ﷺ. Check the flier below for more details.


We ask Allah ﷻ that He preserves Islam and that He grants ease to all the Muslims that are suffering and oppressed in all parts of the world. We ask Allah that He grants us good in this world and in the next. Ameen!


Wassalamu Alaikum,

Sports Committee

The 2023 ISGVF Cricket Tournament matches were played between 12 teams in 4 groups, including the ISGVF team. The final match was played between "North Bengal YC" and "Avengers Legends" on October 8, 2023, at Limerick Community Park.


In a nail biting and exciting match, Avengers Legends beat the North Bengal NY in a close game!  


Both teams' players showed excellent bowling, batting and fielding, while Avengers Legends were just a bit better in rallying back in the end to win the game.  Congratulations to the Avengers Legends for being declared the champion of the tournament, but both teams deserve to celebrate making it to the final match. The winning team's name will be engraved in the team trophy which is displayed in the trophy case at ISGVF. All team members were awarded individual trophies as well.

the following awards were given:
