Assalamu Alikum wa Rahmatullahhi wa Barakatuh,
On behalf of the ISONET Youth Group, I would like to thank each and every single person who volunteered for, attended, and/or funded our 3rd Annual Family Fun Day. May Allah(SWT) reward all who helped make the event a success. Without all of your hard work, dedication, and the will of Allah(swt), none of this would have been possible. I definitely look forward to having many more events such as the Fun Day in the future.
It was an honor to help organize an event to give back not only to our beloved community, but also to the Syrian refugees. In sha' Allah, through Islamic Relief USA, we will be able to donate about $6,000.00 to our brothers and sisters in Islam! Takbeer!
In this day and age, while everything seems to be falling apart, it is essential that we, as an ummah, stick together, and that's exactly what this event was all about. The Family Fun Day didn't just signify a youth event, it served as a way for us to proudly continue practicing Islam in America, having no fear of whatever the media or anti-Islam protesters chose to portray as our ideals.
We have every right to practice our deen, and it was truly inspiring to see Muslims from all across the world come together.
Wa Jazakumallahu Khairan
