From the desk of Imam/Director: Mahmoud Harmoush Dear brothers and sisters: Assalamu Aalaikum Warahmatu Allah. قال الله تعالى : (الذين إذا أصابتهم مصيبةقالوا إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون الئك عليهم صلوات من ربهم ورحمه-والئك هم المهتدون) البقرة-156-157 Allah (SWT) said: (For those who are hit with a calamity, they will say we belong to Allah and to Him we returned, they will have the peace and mercy of Allah) (Al-Baqarah 156-157). Dear brothers and sisters: Last week brought to us sad news of the departures of few people in our community. It is heartbreaking to know that Hajj: (Abu Baker, Mohamad Ahmad), who used to be very active in the early days of the Islamic Center of Riverside, has passed away. We would like to offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends including to his wife Umm Ahmed, son Ahmed, and his daughters, Sarah, Somaia, Nanice, and his in-laws, Omar Zaki and Mohamad Ashraf. The funeral services (Salatu Al-Jannazah) will be at Montecito Memorial Park at 3520 E. Washington St. Colton, CA 92324 on Tuesday, 12/29/2020 at 12:30 PM. Also, we have lost our dear brother Hajj Magid Noureldin, the director of Masjid Al-Rahma and the Food Bank in Moreno Valley. He was a dear friend of mine and well known in the community. The funeral services (salatu-Al-Jannazah) for him will be on Wednesday, 12/30/2020 at 9:00 AM at the Corona Cemetery located at 1125 Rimpau Avenue, Corona CA 92879. While attending these services please follow all regulations and health requirements including wearing masks, maintaining social distance and making the visit short. Additionally, we lost a sister (Umm Ibrahim Surdari) who use to come to ICR with her daughter sister Eman for the Center’s activities. She was buried at the Corona symmetry last week. May Allah bless their souls and include them among the believers in Jannat Al-Naeem. Ameen.

ELECTION 2020 BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES

August 20, 2020 Assalamu alaikum All: Islamic Center of Riverside (ICR) Bylaws require that Voting Members elect seven officers for the Board of Directors, including a sister and a youth (BOD) and five officers for the Board of Trustees (BOT). Due to Covid-19 issues, Election committee (EC) sent nomination ballots via emails on June 20, 2020. Voting Members had thirty days to send their nominations (by July 20, 2020). On July 21, 2020, EC prepared and emailed to Voting Members a preliminary list of nominees. All nominees were later vetted and a final list of nominees for BOD & BOT was emailed on August 10, 2020. Now, since the number of final nominees were the same as the number of available positions for both BOD and BOT, EC on the advice of current BOT, has concluded that there is no need to cast ballots. As such all your nominees are elected unopposed and are therefore declared elected officers (see attached notification). We appreciate your participation and cooperation during the whole process. JazākAllāhu Khayran. Best Regards, ICR Election Committee Email: icrelectioncommittee@gmail.com 2020 BOARD OF TRUSTEES Ali Al Sadoon Tahir Al Khalili Mossalam Al Masri Shoaib Siddiqui Hafiz ur Rahman BOARD OF DIRECTORS Ibrahim Massoud Noman Ghazali Salihin Kondoker Omar Mapara Rashid Darvesh Sister: Rehana Qamar Youth: Shahryer Mustafiz

ICR Weekly

After careful discussion and based on the Shura Council of Southern California, the City and other public agency recommendations the Board of Directors of Islamic Center of Riverside has decided to temporarily close the masjid. No in-person Jumma on July 3rd or July 10th. Please join us for online Jumma Khutbha on the masjid zoom channel. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Please join us for Jummah by Zoom and and Facebook Live at 1:00 pm and Friday evening 9:00 pm for Quranic Tafseer and discussion. HTTPS://US02WEB.ZOOM.US/J/84448906691 ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ From the desk of Sheikh Mahmoud Harmoush Dear brothers and sisters: Assalamu Aalaikum Warahmatu Allah I hope and pray that you and your families are doing well. This was my message for this week before we decided to close the Masjid again for this and the next Friday (7/3/2020 and 7/10/2020) Please read the announcement below. We are in the beginning of the holy month of Dhul-Qidah, 1441 that will be followed with Dhul-Hijjah and the Hijrah Islamic year will come to end. For many people it is another month, but for those who read the Holy Quran carefully, they know that these months are special. Allah Taala mentioned that the numbers of months in the year are twelves, four of it are (Hurom) sacred. They are the following: Rajab, Dhul-Qidah, Dhul-Hijja, and Muharam. Rasoul Allah and the Sahaba used to make special consideration for these months in term of Ebadah (worship) and obedience to Allah (SWT). Thus, I would like to remind myself and all my brothers and sisters to revive this tradition of Rasoul Allah by making more worship, more Sadaqah (charity) and obedience to Allah in these months as much as we can. Insha-Allah. Dear all, let us remind ourselves of the opportunities of making good deeds in this life before chances go away, like Hajj this year. You maybe know that it was restricted on people from outside Saudi Arabia. I am sure there are many people were planning to go for Hajj this year, and now they can’t. Let us pray that Allah bring many opportunities in our lives to do more Ebadat and gain rewards. Finally, please this Friday plan to start this Holy month of Dhul-Qidah and close the month of June with generous donation to your Islamic Center on behalf of your good health Insha-Allah. Finally, for any question or concern, you may contact me at the following e-mails and cell number. mahmoudharmoush@masjidriverside.org and director@masjidriverside.org or on my cell: 951-704-9997. I pray that Allah Taala protects and bless you all, Wassalamu Aalaikum. Mahmoud Harmoush Imam/Director of ICR
