YOU ARE NOT ALONE: CORONAVIRUS
An ISB initiative in response to the Coronavirus crisis affecting many of our community members.
[9:60] "The alms are meant only for the poor and the needy and those who are in charge thereof, those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free those in bondage, and to help those burdened with debt, and for expenditure in the Way of Allah and for the wayfarer. This is an obligation from Allah. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise."
Asalamu Alaykum dear sisters and brothers,
As the coronavirus crisis intensifies, many families in our community are struggling. While many of our local masajid and Islamic centers closed their doors for daily prayers and Jumaa, our staff and board members are still in service to the community through online platforms. The offices of the Islamic Society of Boston at ISBCC Roxbury and at ISB Cambridge are experiencing an increased volume of phone calls from the local student population and local families. As you may well know, rents in Boston and Cambridge are among the highest in the nation.
Those community members calling us are in a dire situation; many are out of work, out of student campus housing, and running out of cash to pay for necessities.
PLEASE DONATE BELOW AND SHARE one of these current campaigns to help community members with others to multiply your rewards InshaAllah!
PLEASE also consider helping those Islamic centers and masajids stay in service NOW. We closed our doors as per public health directives and community safety, but will open many online channels to still serve the community, and our facilities staff have been hard at work with up keep daily mashallah!
May Allah reward you all greatly.
