As many of you may already know, Ramadan is right around the corner! It is time to renew our intentions, repent, and become closer to Allah (SWT). On August 7, 2011, MSHCB (Massachusetts Shelter Home Committee in Boston) and ICNA Relief Boston will be holding a fundraising dinner to raise money for initiating the first Muslim Oriented Shelter home here in MA. Come listen to live stories from people who survived the many hardships of being homeless. These people do not only speak for themselves, but they speak for the indigent Muslim population that many people are blinded to.

It is important that people realize that this shelter home is an extreme necessity for our community. Muslim families are losing their homes, getting separated from their children, undergo hunger, and believe or not, a majority do not speak English. They don’t receive the help that they should be getting from the Muslim community. It is time that we open our eyes and begin to realize that there is world seeking our help. This world consists of our dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters. Please make an effort to attend the dinner and contribute to this cause. There will be a three course dinner along with desert.There will be free babysitting with snacks and games.Taraweeh prayer will also be available for your convenience.

Please RSVP by buying your ticket ahead of time. JAK! See you there insha Allah!
