Message from Chairman Aftab Khan

Assalamu-alaikum!

45th Annual Fundraising Dinner was a success! Raised $220K

Islamic Foundation’s 45th Annual dinner was a huge success with the community coming together and showing their support. The program started with the MC,  Dr. Arif Saleem (a product of Islamic Foundation) welcoming the attendees and kept them interested with great passion all through the program. Mustafa Sayeed’s beautiful Qirat resonated the hall giving a divine feeling. The Chairman’s address by Br. Aftab Khan highlighted the improvements made to the facilities during the last 12 months.  Dr. Javeed Akhtar spoke on “Prophetic wisdom- lessons for now and future” and enlightened the audience.  The keynote address by Keith Ellison highlighting the challenging spread of Islamophobia and other issues facing the community was very interactive and received with a standing ovation. Sr. Sameena highlighted the importance of community and thanked the community for attending the fundraising dinner.  The fundraising goal for the evening was $ 250,000 and we raised $ 220,000 (Alhamdulillah). Inshallah we are waiting for some donors and we should reach our target.  The funds will be used for replacement of HVAC units and Masjid Operations. Islamic Foundation’s Board and Committees extend their thanks and gratitude to the community for their support and generous contributions to Islamic Foundation.

Jazaka’Allah Khairan
