Assalamu Alaikum

Dear Family & Friends of ICSC,

The Islamic Center wishes you and your loved ones a blessed Eid al-Adha! Please join us on Monday, September 12 for Eid Prayers at the Pasadena Convention Center (300 E. Green Street, Pasadena, CA 91101). Takbeer will start at 7:30 a.m and prayer will follow promptly at 8 a.m. If you're looking for a fun way to celebrate, come share the fun, games, and food at our Eid Carnival next Sunday, September 18 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.!

Sunday is also a day of remembrance for the innocent lives lost on American soil 15 years ago in the 9/11 attacks. Please check back for a special edition of our newsletter commemorating September 11.

We look forward to seeing you at Eid Prayers.

In peace,

Islamic Center of Southern California
