السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه
Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
Dear community members
Alhamdulilah, we had an amazingly busy time this Ramadan with strong community participation in the many Ramadan programs, including daily Iftars and trarweeh prayers, as well as the Eid community lunch.
On behalf of the entire community we would like to thank all the volunteers who gave a lot of their valuable time to service the community during Ramadan and Eid. Their participation and hard work made all the difference. Well done all and Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
Ramadan comes and goes but our programs and dedication to serve the community does not end. We have engaged with many of the community volunteers to help organize more activities for this summer. Our aim is to pickup from where we left things in Ramadan and produce more programs to meet the community demand and subsequently increase their participation and interests.
We hope many of you have participated in and enjoyed the potluck dinner organized last week. We will be organizing similar potlucks in the near future so watch out for future announcements.
We are excited to share with you the list of programs (details are further below) which we have prepared for the community this summer:
We are working on additional programs and would update as soon as we have details finalized. We commit to continue working hard on maintaining a good set of programs and activities to serve the community interests and needs. If you have good ideas, energy and can volunteer then we want to hear from you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We wish you all a happy summer.
