Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Fadlollah calls on the Muslim American Community to be an active part of the American society
 
In a meeting with grand Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Fadlallah, Imam Elahi briefed one of the greatest religious authorities in the Muslim world about the social life of the Muslim community in the United States.

In this meeting the Grand Ayatollah called upon the Muslims in America to consider themselves as part of the American society and show their presence in all social, economic, educational and political aspects of life in the nation. The Ayatollah asked the Muslims to be good example for other US citizens in honesty, sense of responsibility, serving the neighboring communities and working for peace and justice. The Grand Ayatollah warned Muslims to avoid following superstitions in the name of religion or traditions. The Grand Ayatollah emphasized on working together with unity, cooperation, interfaith dialogue and active interaction between Muslims and non-Muslims in America.
 
Discussing the services of IHW and its leading role in outreach and education of Muslims and non-Muslims about the peaceful nature of the Islamic faith, the heavy mortgage and financial burden on Islamic House of Wisdom was mentioned. The Grand Ayatollah called for the Muslim community to help IHW in paying its mortgage as part of  their religious obligation of Zakat and Khoms.
  To save the IHW facility from its financial challenges, the Muslim community is welcome to send their Zakat or khoms (Sahmol-imam) to our loan account.
 
Another way would be through the IHW website or sending checks directly to IHW. All donations are tax deductible. 
 
May God bless your dedication and sense of responsibility!
