بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ وَالَّذِينَ هَاجَرُواْ وَجَاهَدُواْ فِي سَبِيلِ اللّهِ أُوْلَـئِكَ يَرْجُونَ رَحْمَتَ اللّهِ وَاللّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَهُمْ أَجْرٌ غَيْرُ مَمْنُونٍ
Indeed, those who believe and do righteous deeds - for them is a reward uninterrupted. (Qur'an 41:8)
The community dinners in collaboration with St. John’s Episcopal Church continue to be held last Saturday of every month. We need 6-8 dedicated IMAN volunteers on a regular and committed basis. Around this core group, we can offer an additional, IMAN led, 2nd Saturday of the month dinner at St. Johns. Those who would like to commit their time on a regular basis can contact Br. Abbas Kazmi by sending mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reliable sources of information about Islam and opportunities for others to interact with practicing Muslims continue to be of great interest to the broader community to develop a better understanding of Islam and Muslims.
Bridge building to our Muslim brothers and sisters following other schools of thought is essential to nurturing a harmonious diverse Muslim community in the Greater Seattle area.
Given (the often) negative coverage of news and events around the Muslim world, combined with unfortunate misinformation about Islam and fear of Muslims, IMAN inter-faith and intra-faith outreach are important areas to expand IMAN's activities.
We need more community volunteer support to move forward. Send e-mail to email@example.com if you want to help.
IMAN Resource Center (IMANRC) sub-committee is dedicated to maintaining and providing online and on premise information on Islam and Muslims. The IMANRC will provide an opportunity to explore and promote educational research and religious studies relevant to personal or moral development and better understanding between interfaith communities. If you are interested in helping on this important endeavor, please send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are exploring medical services to the uninsured and under insured population. Specifically: health screenings, prescriptions, routine blood tests, referral for diagnostic services, educational seminars nutritional advice for better management of chronic conditions Borrowing from other examples around in the Greater Seattle area and elsewhere in the USA, the idea would be for the health clinic to operate once a week with the help of pro bono volunteers comprising of doctors, nurses, medical assistants, translators and support staff. Early feedback from community members – especially professionals who have indicated interest to volunteer and provide pro-bono services - has been very positive.
