Assalamu alaikum Community Members, Friends, and Neighbors:
We hope this message finds you in good health and faith. We come to you today with heavy hearts, deeply affected by the ongoing tragedy in Palestine. This crisis has brought suffering, loss, and devastation to our brothers and sisters in Gaza, and sadly, some of our community members have experienced the heart-wrenching loss of family members who were innocent victims of this conflict.
Our pain and heartbreak are shared collectively, and our focus remains on the safety and well-being of our brothers and sisters who are suffering in the war-torn regions. For some resources on how to navigate these difficult times, you may visit https://maristan.org/, a non-profit organization dedicated to Muslim mental health.
We will keep you updated on the rescheduled date for our Open Mosque Day. In the meantime, let us come together as a strong and supportive community to offer our prayers, assistance, and solace to those in need.
We are actively collaborating with reputable organizations and individuals within our community who have ties to the affected areas. You can consider donating to the following agencies or other entities of your choice.
1. The Palestinian American Medical Association (PAMA):
2. United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees in the near east (UNRWA)
3. Islamic Relief:
May Allah grant patience and strength to our afflicted brothers and sisters, and may peace and justice prevail in these troubled times.
With prayers and solidarity,
ICCV Board of Directors
