The mission of the ISBCC is to teach and live Islam in America. An example is presented to us in the famous Hadith of Jibreel in which Angel Jibreel asked the Prophet Muhammad pbuh a set of questions. The Prophet responded and then explained to his companions that that was Angel Jibreel who came to teach us our religion. This famous hadith highlights the importance of inward beliefs and outward actions. The example of Angel Jibreel and how he interacted with the Prophet set an example for us to strive to seek knowledge and implement it. The Prophet Muhammad pbuh also said: “Seeking knowledge is an obligation upon every Muslim”. Therefore, the core focus of the ISBCC’s religious programs are spirituality, community building, and service. The purpose is to help us develop on a personal and communal level and to be able to live the example of Prophet Muhammad pbuh and Angel Jibreel.
The Friday khutbah is the main service of the week. It covers various different topics linking back to the Quran and Sunnah. It starts at 1pm and consists of a 25 – 30 min sermon followed by a prayer.
