As we celebrate the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan, May Allah (swt) shower His blessings upon you and your family. Islam in America is on center stage and Alhumdullilah we were given the opportunity to share the true virtues of our religion with our neighbors, colleagues, and friends. Let us embrace this opportunity to continue to shine a positive impression of American Muslims by extending the charitable contributions of service and alms to throughout the year. The Qur’an states “Have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity) (73:10) The late great boxer, Muhammad Ali famously said, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” Have a safe and blessed Eid Al-Fitr. EID MUBARAK to you and your families!
