Sponsor an Iftar:

Charity is of the essence in the month of Ramadan, and what better way then to give charity in your own backyard. With Corona virus, Islamic institutes are expected to remain closed during the month of Ramadan. Many families throughout SoCal rely on Iftar programs to help provide food on their table during this time. Without Iftar Programs, these families will struggle putting food on the table.  Support the cause by contributing to help us. Under the leadership of Sister Sahar Ali, the team will work to provide Iftar meals to needy families. 100% of your donation will be used to purchase meals to supply to these families through the support of local restaurants, who could also use the help during this business slow down.
