As Salaam Alaikum
In addition to everything else that may be happening in our lives right now, we just wanted to remind you that we are also currently in hurricane season. In fact Hurricane Isaias is projected to possibly hit along the South East coast of the United States by Monday or Tuesday and has the potential to impact North Carolina. Therefore, we are posting this public service announcement with the following link to help you stay aware of, and get prepared for, the possibility of being impacted by Hurricane Isaias or another future storm during this hurricane season. May Allah protect us all from the evil that may be contained within created things. Amin
As Salaam Alaikum,
Although we will not be able to perform the Eid salat together at ICF this year, Insha’Allah may each of us be able to benefit as much as we can from our individual efforts. One such effort with huge benefits for the believers is to recite the takbeerat as much as possible throughout the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, but especially immediately after the fard salat during the days of Eid. The time to start takbeerat after every fard salat begins after Fajr on the Day of Arafat, which is this coming Thursday morning (We should also remember to fast on the Day of Arafat), and ends after Asr salat on next Monday, August 3rd. May each of us remember to recite the takbeerat during these Blessed days, and may Allah reward each of us, our families, the ICF community, and the entire Muslim ummah tremendously from His tremendous bounties. The following link provides a short summary of when and how to recite the takbeerat.
As Salaam Alaikum,

As Salaam Alaikum. Insha’Allah our Charity Fundraising Fish Fry, to help cover masjid expenses during the pandemic closure, will continue each Friday from 3-6:00 pm. You can purchase a small plate (one piece of fish) for $6 or a large plate (two pieces of fish) for $8. Of course a larger donation is greatly appreciated as this is a charitable cause. All money raised from these weekly Fish Fries goes directly to the ICF masjid operational expenses. So, please be charitable and generous when making your donation.
NOTE: THERE WILL NOT BE A FISH FRY ON FRIDAY, JULY 31ST (THE DAY OF EID AL ADHA). INSHAALLAH WE WILL RESUME THE WEEKLY FISH FRIES ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 7TH.
Insha’Allah the ICF Shurah leadership will continue to monitor conditions as North Carolina moves into Phase 2 of the coronavirus pandemic reopening process. It is the decision of ICF, as well as other local masajids, that the start of Phase 2 is still too soon to return to normal masjid operations. We will monitor the results of the Phase 2 reopening and decide how to proceed as we move into Phase 3. We all want to return to the masjid for daily salat, Jummuah, and other masjid activities as soon as possible. However, we must do so in a responsible manner that Insha’Allah considers the wellbeing of all our community members, especially the most vulnerable. The current requirements to allow us to reopen are too restrictive to comply with considering our community needs, financial costs, and personnel requirements. As soon as we believe it is safe to reopen without such restrictions we will let you know. Please watch for updates here on our website as well as on our Facebook page.

ICF is a formally registered and chartered charitable religious organization recognized under the laws of the United States federal government as well as the state of North Carolina.
The Islamic Center of Fayetteville was established as an organization in 2008 for the purpose of establishing a masjid, school, and dawah center in a central location in the city of Fayetteville, North Carolina. From years of working and living in this city, the organization founders believed that there was a need for these services in this location.
Through significant personal efforts and financial contributions and local fundraising, ICF established its first physical location in a rented structure on Grove Street in 2008. In 2010 we moved operations to another rented location, and in 2011 we moved to yet another rental site at 607 German Street, Fayetteville, North Carolina. In just ten relatively short years, Allah Blessed us to purchase our current facility at 2415 Rosehill Road on August 23rd, 2018. At our new, and insha’Allah permanent facility, we hope to continue our regular activities which include hosting Jummah Salat every Friday, regular weekend Islamic study activities for children and adults, ICF community social activities, community outreach activities, Annual Islamic Conferences, an annual college scholarship program, and both Eid and janazah functions in participation with other local Islamic communities.
