In times of distress, as Muslims, we have an obligation to help the people affected adversely by circumstance, such as the current hurricane. Please, check the announcement below. I wholeheartedly appeal to participate in this worthy cause.
Ameer, Cary Masjid.
Assalamu ‘Alaikum (May Peace Be Upon You),
We pray for those who have lost lives, homes and businesses, and are struggling to rebuild in the aftermath of Florence. Those of us who were spared the worst have a duty to help our community members in the areas that have been devastated by the storm.
Islamic Association of Cary is part of a collective of North Carolina mosques and non-profit organizations that have joined together to share resources in coordinating a statewide relief effort to assist government agencies and relief organizations.
We have ongoing communication with government agencies and relief organizations assessing the extent of the damage and need.
We have coordinated a three-part effort:
Islamic Association of Cary and area organizations will be collecting certain supplies throughout this week.

The items can be dropped off Monday-Friday (9/17-9/21) at your neighborhood Triangle-area Mosques and on-campus locations designated by the corresponding Muslim Student Associations, and other partner non-profit organizations’ locations.
IAR has FINAL COLLECTION: Saturday, 9/22/18, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
