Dear Family & Friends of ICSC,
This has been a defining week for America and for so many communities, including our own. Now more than ever, we must come together to draw strength, resolve and meaning with the challenge ahead.
Please join us today for a special jumma'a khutba by Dr. Gasser Hathout with spiritual guidance in facing the future with resolve and courage. We are also pleased to share that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti will address the community directly after jumma'a, and share his message of inclusion and unity for all Angelenos, including our community. We will also be livestreaming both the khutba and Mayor Garcetti's remarks on our Facebook page. Please help spread the word and encourage people to attend and share.
We are grateful for the outpouring of love and support we have received this week from faith leaders, elected officials and especially everyday Angelenos. This is the best symbol of the blessing we have to be a part of our city. We also take this as an opportunity to recommit ourselves to our involvement in the Islamic Center and our Greater Los Angeles community as we prepare to continue educating ourselves and our neighbors on the principles of our faith.
Join us with your whole family this Sunday at 10 a.m. as Imam Asim Buyuksoy presents the second half of his tafseer (explanation) on Surah Al-Hujurat. At 11 a.m., Parents Circle will focus on providing tools for addressing the election with our kids and we will close with Mahmood Waseeq as he leads our noon session on "Spending on Others."
Thank you for your dedication to the Islamic Center. We look forward to seeing you and your loved ones today and this weekend.
