Feed My Starving Children: October 12 – 15

In just a few weeks the Feed My Starving Children mobile pack event will be held in Ithaca. Volunteers from all the different religious  congregations in Ithaca come together and make food packages for children that are shipped to many parts of the world where conditions have become difficult through natural or man-made disasters. The meals packed are halal.

Last year was our first year formally participating as the Ithaca Muslim community at this event, and this year we have reserved shifts for 10 workers on three of the days. Those of us who volunteered last year remember a nice experience of working alongside each other with our children, and seeing our community represented among those of our neighbors.

Watch for more information about this to be shared soon, and sign up for a work shift on one or more of the days. Children are welcome to participate.

Karbala: Stand for Justice

Friday, September 21 6-8pm @ One World Room, Anabel Taylor Hall, Cornell University

The greatest tragedy in Islamic history took place on the 10th of Muharram in 61 AH. The Battle of Karbala culminated in the martyrdom of Imam Husain and several other members from the Prophet Muhammed’s family.

Ustadh Luqman al Andalus will recount the tragedy and highlight lessons for those pursuing Truth and Justice. Together, we will commemorate the Battle of Karbala.

Ustadh Luqman has authored several works on the Family of the Prophet after having studied across the Muslim world for several years.

Halal Iftar and Dinner from Maryam’s Mart
All are welcome!
