04 Community Resources ︎


We strive to be a resource for our community and people seeking the true essence of Islam. 

Narrated by Abu Huraira, one of the Prophet's closest Sahabah:
One day while the Prophet was sitting in the company of some people, (The angel) Gabriel came and asked, "What is faith?" Allah's Messenger replied, 'Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, (the) meeting with Him, His Apostles, and to believe in Resurrection." Then he further asked, "What is Islam?" Allah's Messenger replied, "To worship Allah Alone and none else, to offer prayers perfectly, to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat) and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan." Then he further asked, "What is Ihsan (perfection)?" Allah's Messenger replied, "To worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion then you must consider that He is looking at you."

Every act of worship that we are asked to perform (Prayer, Charity, Fasting, Performance of Good Deeds and Avoidance of Evil) is designed to nourish the soul in the remembrance of this sacred covenant between Creation and Creator.
