As Salaam Alaikum
Al Humdulilah the ICF celebration for Eid Al Adha was a successful community event. We prayed the Eid Salat at the masjid and many community members were able to perform their sacrifices through coordinated efforts with local animal suppliers and our designated community contacts. We concluded our celebration last Friday with Jummuah followed by a community cookout in the masjid parking lot. The event was well attended and served as a capstone day for our Eid celebration. The ICF Shurah thanks everyone who worked to make our Eid week such a success. May Allah forgive us all and grant us Jannatul Ferdouse. Amin.
Insha’Allah today we will all be Blessed with another beneficial Jummuah day. May Allah protect us from the evil of created things, and make the difficulties we experience a means of expiation for us. Amin.
As a reminder on this Jummuah day, please enjoy the following Khutbah from Mufti Menk about not harming others.
Reminders Benefit the Believers:
HADITH OF THE WEEK:
It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “Whoever covers (the sin of) a Muslim, Allah will cover him (his sin) in this world and in the Hereafter.”
( Sunan Ibn Majah, Book 20, Hadith 2641)
An important reminder for when we’re quick to judge and admonish others. As Siddhi Ahmad Zarruq, the 15th Century Islamic scholar said in his counsel “If you desire to live such that your religion is safe, and your portion is full and your honor is sound, guard your tongue and never mention another’s faults, remembering you yourself have faults and others have tongues. Watch your eye; Should it ever reveal to you the faults of others say to it, “O my eye! Other people have eyes too!”.
SILENCE IS NOT AN OPTION!
On the authority of Abu Sa`eed al-Khudree (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) say, “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.”[Muslim]

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.
