MCF stands in solidarity with the Black community
06/05/2020

سم الله الرحمن الرحيم

يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقۡنَٰكُم مِّن ذَكَرٖ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلۡنَٰكُمۡ شُعُوبٗا وَقَبَآئِلَ لِتَعَارَفُوٓاْۚ إِنَّ أَكۡرَمَكُمۡ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ أَتۡقَىٰكُمۡۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٞ

O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.

-Surah Al-Hujurat, Ayah 13

The Muslim Community of Folsom extends our support and solidarity to the Black community. We strongly condemn the senseless violence that led to the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. They are simply the latest in a long line of Black men and women struck down, in some cases by those who were sworn to serve and protect them. We call for justice for the families and friends of those murdered.

Anti-blackness and racism are worldwide issues that have been perpetuated for hundreds of years. We acknowledge that there is much work to be done to fix these discriminatory systems, and as Muslims, it is our duty to demand change. Our beloved Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) stood for justice and equality and strongly condemned oppression. He said, “Whoever has oppressed another person concerning his reputation or anything else, he should beg him to forgive him before the Day of Resurrection when there will be no money (to compensate for wrong deeds), but if he has good deeds, those good deeds will be taken from him according to his oppression which he has done, and if he has no good deeds, the sins of the oppressed person will be loaded on him” (Sahih Al-Bukhari 2449).
 
As a community organization dedicated to harnessing our values in service to our society, MCF recognizes that justice for all people in America cannot come to fruition without an unwavering and unapologetic commitment to achieving justice for Black Americans. Justice is a central tenant in Islam. That includes an honest acknowledgment of entrenched anti-Blackness within our society.
 
To that end, MCF condemns all forms of anti-Black violence, whether the culprits are police officers like Derek Chauvin in Minnesota or civilians like Gregory and Travis McMichael in Georgia. We also unequivocally condemn the dehumanization of Blackness, whether it occurs inside or outside our community.

No one is free until we all are free. May Allah free those who have been oppressed. May He protect the weak and give a voice to the unheard. Ameen.

In solidarity,
The Muslim Community of Folsom

Women Transitional Home Project
05/28/2019

Women Transitional Home Project

MCF community members and ICNA Relief are excited to announce the opening of the Women Transitional Home project after Ramadan. 
Unfortunately, there is a rising Muslim women homelessness in the U.S. These women are victim of domestic violence, sudden tragedies and emotional trauma. There is hardly any options for these women to start a new life in the time of sudden crises. We as a community are under religious and moral obligation to help our sisters in need.

 
MCF community is taking the lead in the Sacramento region to start the first women transitional home in partnership with ICNA relief.
 
ICNA has established program in US with 17 transitional homes serving around 500 women per year.

There will be a fundraising event for the program right after Salat-ul-Jumma on May 31st in MCF.

For information regarding the women's Tranistional Home project please CLICK HERE for the  presentation.

Contact Advisory Board: Br. Mohammad Hafeez, Br. Ishfaq Qurashi, Br. Noor Khan, Br. Saif ul Haq, Br. Waseem Peracha or Br. Zeeshan Sarwar for any question.

Before you click out of this email, read
what one mother wrote about respite care:
 
"A few years ago I realized that declining an offer of assistance was not only unhelpful to me, but was alsodepriving another of baraka, or the opportunity to help a fellow Muslim in need. I always said 'its ok, I got this', if someone offered to help with my daughter's wheelchair or open the door for us, thinking I had to be "Supermom" and take care of my kids all by myself. But I was wrong-
 
I can't do this all on my own.

People don't offer to help as often as one might think- families like ours might seem intimidating or complicated. But we're not-we're just typical people in atypical circumstances. And those few times someone does offer to help, I gratefully accept-giving us both a moment of kindness to share. I can't stress enough how even little acts of kindness to our family means to us. Bigger, grander gestures of someone volunteering to watch our girls while I go grocery shopping, or go for a physical for myself, arefew and far between unfortunately. But when it does happen, that moment of kindness, that mutually beneficial gift of giving and receiving, that baraka remains for long after in our hearts”
