As-salamu alaykum community members,

I pray this message finds you all well. One of the pioneers of the Muslim Community Center of Portland, Muntasir Rushdan, has returned to Allah. The Janazah prayer will be held on Tuesday April 24, 2018 after Dhuhr prayer at 1:30pm at MCCP, inshaa’Allah. There is great benefit and blessing in being a part of the Janazah prayer and we pray that many of you will be able to be a part of the Janazah. May Allah shower brother Muntasir with mercy, and may Allah bring tranquility of heart to his family and those who loved him, amin.
