ICC Youth Qiyam: Connecting with the Quran
Ramadan is often referred to as "the month of Quran," but sometimes some of us leave the month feeling like we didn't capitalize on our relationship with our Holy Book. Maybe we're not having a good understanding of what we're reading and listening to, or maybe we're having trouble finding the will to read at all. What better remedy than a night with a scholar in the house or God, learning about the book of God? ICC Tempe is very happy to host Shaykha Maryam Amir Ebrahimi for an all night Qiyam on "Connecting with the Quran." Insha'Allah this is a great way for us to learn about our beloved book in a way we didn't know before. Suhoor will be served insha'Allah. We hope to see everyone there!

ICC Youth Qiyam: The Value of Youth in the Muslim Community
Ramadan is a time where often many of our hidden stars in the community show us flashes of community leadership. Most of the time, those stars are youth. Our Masjid itself is strong in terms of youth population and involvement, but how do we capitalize on that demographic? What kind of importance must we place on the youth here, and how do we encourage them to take leadership roles for a Masjid that will be under their watch a few years from now? ICC Tempe would like to invite you to our first Youth Qiyam of Ramadan, led by Imam Azhar Subedar. We are very excited to host this all night program of prayer and knowledge, and of course, food! Please feel free to join us for a great event!

How Awesome to Be a Muslim with Nihad Awad
Nihad Awad is the Executive Director and co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the largest non-profit Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States. He has been frequently interviewed on national and international media such as CNN, BBC World Service, PBS, C-SPAN, NPR, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Voice of America and Al-Jazeerah. CAIR news releases are disseminated to hundreds of thousands people worldwide on a daily basis. After the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, Mr. Awad flew to Oklahoma to aid in the relief effort. He personally met with Governor Frank Keating and gave the governor a sizable donation for the victims’ fund on behalf of the American Muslim community. In 1997, Mr. Awad served on Vice President Al Gore’s Civil Rights Advisory Panel to the White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security. In his professional capacity, Mr. Awad has also personally met with former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright andColin L. Powell to discuss the needs of the American Muslim community. Numerous law enforcement agencies and Fortune 500 companies—including Nike and DKNY—have benefited from CAIR educational seminars on Islamic traditions and culture. In addition to resolving employment discrimination issues involving American Muslims, Mr. Awad has also conducted over 100 public relations and media training seminars nationwide. For the 2000 presidential election, Mr. Awad was a key figure in the American Muslim Political Coordinating Committee (AMPCC), an umbrella organization of the largest American Muslim organizations, which helped to create the first Muslim voting bloc for a presidential election. Mr. Awad is a regular participant in the U.S. Department of State’s “International Visitors Program”, which welcomes foreign dignitaries, journalists and academics who are currently visiting the President of the United States. A few days after September 11, 2001, Mr. Awad was one of the few American Muslim leaders invited by the White House to join President Bush in a press conference at the Islamic Center of Washington, the oldest mosque in Washington DC. Mr. Awad has testified before both houses of the U.S. Congress, most recently at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on matters involving Muslims in America. He has also spoken at prestigious educational institutions, including Harvard, Stanford and Johns Hopkins Universities. He was also a featured speaker at the 2002 Reuters Forum on global cooperation at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. In addition, he actively works with local and national interfaith leaders and organizations in the interest of promoting positive relations among people of diverse faith communities. Mr. Awad is also featured in Silent No More by former United States Representative Paul Findley (R-IL), a book chronicling the history of the American Muslim community.

ICC Youth Halaqa - Preserving the Muslim Identity with Rawa Awad
Nowadays it's becoming incredibly hard to stick to Islam. The religion is constantly under attack. Others who don't attack expect us to abandon some tenants to become socially accepted. We're in a time where other groups who have ideals that go against our own want us to ally with them, but where do we draw the line? How do we maintain a strong relationship with these allies without compromising our Islamic values, or is it even possible? Join us on Wednesday for a great discussion led by sister Rawa Awad, on how we should tackle this prominent issue. Insha'Allah there will be refreshments. Please join us for Maghrib salah at 7:10 and we will begin the Halaqa right after insha'Allah

#BlackLivesMatter Banner Ceremony
Our friends over at Valley Unitarian Universalist Congregation have shown their support for racial justice in many ways, including hanging a banner reading “BlackLivesMatter.” Their banner unfortunately was vandalized twice, and then stolen. Unwavering in their support, they hung a new banner and it too was vandalized. Standing resolute for what they believe in, in support of the BlackLivesMatter movement, and in solidarity with our African American brothers and sisters, they intend to hang a new banner once more. They have invited community faith congregations around the valley to join in support of the cause by attending a brief ceremony planned to hang the new banner. The ceremony will be short and sweet with faith leaders offering brief remarks/prayers. **ICC and MAS Arizona are committed to community partnerships, and join together at every possible opportunity as we envision a more united, intentional community effort.

ICC Community Night:Mawlid of the Prophet
Friday, January 15th, after Isha Prayers (Isha Iqama will be 7:30 PM) Bring your family and friends and join us for a night of inspiring talks, hadith readings, and songs/nasheeds, as we celebrate the life of the Blessed Prophet (PBUH)! Featured Guest: Dr. Meraj Mohiuddin, author of "Revelation" "[This] is the first biography of the Prophet that I've read that brings it all together-there is something in it for everyone; as an instructor, I use it for teaching, and as a student, I use it for study. It is the most important work on the Prophet's life I've come across in the English language. I'm proud to announce that it is the official biography of the Prophet used by the Ella Collins Institute for training future faith providers in the USA." - Imam Suhaib Webb, Ella Collins Institute "Many biographies of the Prophet Muhammad (peace upon him) have appeared in recent years. None, however, display the scholarly depth, methodological precision and factual clarity of Meraj Mohiuddin's ["Revelation"]. Relying on ancient and modern sources, graphs, charts, marginal notes and a moving narration, Mohiuddin rigorously chronicles the life of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) in a uniquely engaging and informative manner." - Imam Zaid Shakir, Zaytuna College Two attendees will be randomly selected to receive a free signed copy of the book "Revelation"!
