Muharram Fund

As we edge closer to the Holy month of Muharram ISIA is honoured to bring you 13 nights of exclusive lectures with Imam Dr. Usama al Atar.

Our target is to raise $30,000.00 during the Month of Muhaarram. We humbly ask that you make a financial contribution to help cover the expenses in running of the Centre.

Funds collected during the months of Muharram and Ramadhan, not only help us with the expenses for those months, but also help offset expenses for the rest of the year.

The first question that comes to mind is why is the budget for this year so high? First and foremost is to replace the roof. Our maintenance team has been asking us to replace the roof for the last three years. We now have a roof that's leaking and cannot wait any longer. The amount being asked in donations will cover the cost of running the facility for the next couple of months for programs of Aza, as well as regular programming. In addition, the Executive has incurred the expense of replacing the security system and upgrading the a/v equipment. The reserves being held by the executive are at a low – we are asking the community to come forward and gain thawab to help fund the costly repairs of the facility. Therefore, the amount that we need to raise is above what is the normal operating costs for the community.

Imam Jaffer Sadiq (a.s.) says that: “Everything has a key, and the key to sustenance is charity”. (BIHAR VOL 47 PAGE 38)

Given the unquestionable endorsements by our Imam on the fact that charity is a very method of improving our subsistence, we humbly ask you to donate generously in the name of Imam Hussain (a.s.). Surely, through your generosity, his mother, our beloved Sayeda Fatima (a.s.) will intercede for your Shafaat on the day of Judgment as being among those who eased the way for programs in the name of her son.

Indeed the Quran says: “The person who lends to Allah, a good lending will receive many times more”. (2:245)

Among other things, your donations help:

  • cover the costs of holding online programs and other expenses in running the centre
  • cover the hadiya of the Speakers
  • cover the cost of new roof.

Please help us meet our target of $30,000.00
