Muslims Honor First Responders
Salaam alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu.
My dear members of the Muslim community of Southern California, it’s with absolute pleasure and joy, I’d like to share with you the great news that the Shura Council now has a home. The Muslim Headquarters of Southern California has been established.
Back on July, 24th, 2018, we opened escrow on a property in the City of Orange right by the 91 & 55 freeways, in a prime location with great visibility and exposure to the traffic passing on the freeways. The journey started, and since then, it has been an amazing journey, with all the amazing things that showed how when we are united as a community, we can achieve great things.
It was heartwarming to see individuals and organizations extended their support to the Shura Council, and put their trust and faith in its leadership, Muslims from all different backgrounds, schools of thought, ethnicities, all expressed their generosity and opened their hearts and hands to support this project.
On November 6th, 2018, with Allah’s support and blessings, we closed escrow, completing the purchase of the property. Alhamdulillah, now we can say that the Shura Council has a home, and an address that will help it serve the future generations of our Muslim community in Southern California for many years to come. The headquarters of the Muslim community of Southern California now is a reality.
Congratulations to each one of us, congratulations to our Masajid, to our Islamic Centers and organizations, and to every single member of the community, to every single individual who belongs to the Muslim Community of Southern California.
Dr. Ahmed Soboh,
Chairman of the Islamic Shura
Council of Southern California
