Our Community, United in Worship - Imam Atif Khutbah
As Ramadan came to a close, our Charlotte community once again showed the strength in our unity by coming together in the thousands for a united Eid prayer.
Confusion over the new facility and adjustments aside, the Eid prayers were once again a symbol of our united brotherhood in Islam.

Following the Eid Prayer, Imam Atif from ISGC delivered a beautiful khutbah. He encouraged us to work together better, to reach out to our community and to not live in fear of being identified as Muslims.

The weekend following the Eid was filled with celebration and festivities with our communities… united.
