Aisha Center-Eid announcement-Sunday 5/24/2020

السلام عليكم

Dear Community Members,
Aisha Moon sighting committee has been in session all evening and have reached out to contacts around the country. The new moon was NOT sighted today anywhere in North America or in most countries. We will fast tomorrow Saturday as the last day of Ramadan.

EnshaAllah Sunday 5/24 will be the first day of Shawal and Eid El-Fitr. We strongly encourage the community to pray Salat El-Eid (2 rakaat) at home as a family.

May Allah accept your Seyam and Qeyam, keep you safe and healthy, and grant you abundance of Blessings and Eid Mubarak.

We shall update you of any changes!

Jazakum Allah Khair

Aisha Center-Eid Update

Dear Community Members,
We wish you and your family in these last days of Ramadan the best of health and we ask Allah (swt) to accept your Salat, Seyam, Qeyam, and all Ibadat.

Aisha Center will be holding a virtual community meeting on Friday, 29th of Ramadan, at 9:30 pm (see link below).
Our Moon Sighting committee then will announce if the Eid is going to be on Saturday or Sunday. EnshaAllah this virtual gathering of our community will be an opportunity to celebrate the farewell of Ramadan, Zoom out our Takbeer, and exchange Eid Greetings.

We encourage our community to pray Salat Al-Eid (2 rakaat) at home as a family.

While all services at Aisha Center remain unchanged, the Board is developing a reopening plan that ensures the safety of everyone. The reopening of Aisha Center plan is based on Florida Governor activating Phase Two and our efforts to follow all safety requirements. We shall keep you posted EnshaAllah.

New Expansion

ACC project expansion status update

Subsequent to our community town hall meeting held on April 30, 2016 authorizing the ACC Board to move forward with ACC expansion project. The following actions have taken place:

1. Opened a separate bank account for the expansion project on Friday 5-6-2016

2. Submitted a final contract offer on 5-9-2016 to the seller/bank of the property located at 8244 Curry Ford. Since this is a short sale and requires the full amount in cash, we were notified today that our offer has been selected as a backup offer and the seller/bank will keep us posted.

3. Established project committee that includes members of our community with different expertise. We are encouraging others to be part of this important committee, including sisters and youth as well. The input of our community is so critical to the success of this project.

4. Moving forward with the help of Allah (swt) and the community support. We will be developing a project master plan based on community future needs and financial ability in regards to the location of the site.

There is no doubt that the center needs expansion and Alhamdlelah our community is united and excited about the new possibilities. Whether we get this land or we find, enshaAllah a better one we need everyone to remain committed in raising the funds so we can act promptly should the right opportunity arise.
