Dar al-Hijrah Sustainability Committee Wednesday, February 10

February 9, 2016

Asalaamu Alaikum,

Tomorrow, Wednesday February 10 from 4-5:30 PM (Dar al-Hijrah Library) you are invited to join me and others environmental leaders in our community to discuss how to can collectively turn Dar al-Hijrah into one of the greenest mosques in North America insh’Allah.

Over the past few years, a number of individuals have put in considerable effort to work on green projects within the Dar al-Hijrah community. From Ramadan (and beyond) recycling programs to community gardens, Alhumudullilah community members have dedicated a lot of time and effort to growing closer to Allah through their service to our masjid. May their efforts and intentions be accepted. Ameen.

I am excited to announce a new initiative that seeks to combine our efforts into one committee. It is through our systematic collaboration insh’Allah that the sustainable practices of our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW can grow within our own hearts and spread to the brothers and sisters we prostrate besides in our prayers.

The idea here is the play the long game; to directly change the culture of Dar al-Hijrah to be one of moderate consumption and care for all of creation.

The committee format relies upon all segments of our community to participate–raising their voices, and acting upon their intentions.

Please be on time for the meeting. JAK

Muslim businesses in the construction industry host Networking Luncheon on Sunday, June 7th 2015

May 22, 2015

As-salaamualikum my dear respected brothers and sisters,

A number of Muslim businesses in the construction industry are hosting a Networking Luncheon on Sunday, June 7th from 12-2:30pm at the Silver Spring Civic Center in Montgomery County that is geared toward Muslim businesses and individuals who are in the industry. Please see attached flier for the Event. In March, the same group hosted an event where nearly 60 mainly Muslims attended and which the Montgomery County Executive was the keynote speaker and Associate Administrator of the SBA received an award from us.

As leaders in the Muslim community, we would love for you to attend. We would also like for you to announce this event at Jumah prayer over the next few weeks, distribute to your listserves and inform others about this event. Our goals for this event are to create a mechanism where we can spend more of our monies within the Muslim community, increase the capacity of Muslim businesses, increase opportunities to hire Muslims in the industry, and announce the formation of a Muslim Chamber of Commerce in the region.

Jazakallah.

Your brother,

Omar
