The Islamic Shura Council of Michigan is launching a new but badly needed program to help those in need. The Michigan food pantry program is collaborative effort between ISCOM and Michigan Gleaners Food Bank.
The money raised will be used to buy food supplies at discounted prices from the Gleaners food bank. The food will be distributed through distribution centers at various Islamic Centers and organizations in the Detroit area to people in need.
The program is a year round program so donors are asked to donate monthly if possible. The money collected will be used to purchase food supply for the following month and therefor the program is zakat eligible.
Please do not forget to sign up to our mailing list so we can send a monthly reminder.

The Gleaners food bank October newsletter has a very nice article about ISCOM volunteers day. Cick here to read.
ISCOM would like to thank our community for participation in this event and ask Allah SWT to reward all who helped make it a sucuucess. It is through these kinds of activities that we can help shape a bright future for the Muslims community in North America.

We are all familiar with exquisite mosques full of grandeur and glory. However we often forget of mosques that are in poor condition which produce filling of anguish and sorrow. Such mosques often have attendees who pray and worship not only under conditions lacking aesthetic value but in conditions where safety and comfort ability is at risk.
The maintaining of the houses of Allah fund will seek to restore such mosques in Michigan to an exceptional level of aesthetic and safety quality, whether it is restoring leaky ceilings fixing utility infrastructure or improving general mosque condition.
