Interfaith Event - Can War be Holy?
The NICC’s Outreach Department in collaboration with Temple Israel and Trinity Episcopal, hosted an engaging interfaith event on Saturday 1/17/15 at NICC with guest scholar Rabbi Ruevene Firestone. The event was a huge success and surpassed the projected attendance. The event also lasted longer than the scheduled time as the discussions were engaging and interfaith dialogue kept the curiosity inspired and growing.
We look forward to many more such occasions to be in company of the interfaith family of Central Ohio and beyond and build this community stronger, together. The NICC leadership team also extends its gratitude to our collaborating partners Rabbi Misha Zinkow (Temple Israel) and Rev. Richard Burnett (Trinity Episcopal) that made this event a possibility. 
In addition, the NICC leadership team would like to send cordial ‘Thank You’, to all our guests who attended this event and our volunteers that worked behind the scene to make this event a true success. We are thankful to Nicol Ghazi, Furqan Rehman, Khurram Bhutta and Nina Shameem for their selfless support and assistance with hosting this event.
The Outreach Department is always looking for volunteers. Please write to if you would like to volunteer and be part of Outreach and Interfaith events and activities at NICC.


National Interfaith Conference -- DIVINITY and DIVERSITY: Building our community together (Feb 19-21, 2015) at NICC
Noor Islamic Cultural Center (NICC) in collaboration and partnership with Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), National Interfaith Campaign—Shoulder to Shoulder (S2S) and Safe Alliances of Interfaith Leaders (SAIL), hosted the first National Interfaith Conference at NICC on February 19th through 21st, 2015. The conference became a reality, after almost a year and half of planning work and embarks the synchronized momentum for more collaborative efforts at local and regional levels for building safe and cohesive communities together. The conference was attended by 300 plus guests. Programs included seminars, panel discussions, workshops, keynotes (Interfaith Instructor: Sean Rose—Face to Faith; Joseph DeMott -- ASPEN Institute; Filmmaker: David Washburn -- An American Mosque) and opportunity for open ended interfaith dialogue with local and regional interfaith leaders.
Part of the conference highlight also included a leadership banquette sponsored by Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) on Thursday February 19th, 2015 at the Hilliard MaKoy Center.  The purpose of the banquette was to celebrate diversity and recognize the efforts of the community building work that has been shouldered by NICC and SAIL teams. Reverend Dr. Stephen Smith (Rector of Saint Patrick’s Church in Dublin and current President of SAIL) and Imran Malik (Chairman of NICC-BoD and current vice-President of SAIL) received the community service award from ISNA at this leadership banquette.
The NICC leadership team congratulates all our collaborating partners and selfless team of leaders and volunteers that spearheaded such a large undertaking of hosting this successful National Interfaith Conference. Although, this conference was first of its kind it has surely opened up more doors for future collaborating efforts both at local and regional stages. It’s an effort that is needed a lot more now than ever! We are thankful to all the leaders and volunteers who all deserve a round of applause. May Allah (swt) bless them all and their families always. Their passion and dedication is refreshing and an assurance for a prosperous future via togetherness!

We are grateful and humbled to have had a full house of over 375 people in attendance representing our community at the Noor Islamic Cultural Center. Insha Allah, by the grace of Allah (SWT), our masjid and supporters will continue to grow.
We are also thankful for the tremendous support from our event sponsors and advertisers, totaling 14 community businesses. Additionally, this year, our event was highlighted with many amazing speakers: our beloved Imam Hossam Musa delivered a profound reminder of our commitment to supporting our Masjid. Sheikh Omar Shahin reminded us the importance of giving for the sake of Allah (SWT), and the bountiful rewards awaiting us in the Hereafter.  Br. Omar Saqr gave insight on the work our youth are doing for the community and their vision for the future, and finally, Br. Naeem Muhammad and his crew from Native Deen gave an electrifying performance that provided great entertainment. We appreciate all of you, and we are extremely thankful for your remarkable work and talent!
This year’s banquet would not have been possible without the assistance from the AIW Board of Directors and Executive Committee leaders, NICC Staff, and volunteers. We wish to thank these marvelous individuals who worked tirelessly to make this a successful event.
Alhamdulillah, we raised over $200,000 in donations and pledges (our goal was $150,000); it was heart-warming to see the support, diversity, and unity of our community, and those who never falter in heeding the call, even in tough times.
We wish to thank you all once again. You made the 2015 Annual Banquet one of the most memorable and fruitful events for our masjid.

of the day

Narrated Abu Huraira (radi Allahu anhu):

I heard Allah's Apostle (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) saying. 'Allah divided Mercy into one-hundred parts and kept ninety-nine parts of it with Him and sent down one part on earth. And because of that, its one single part, His creations are Merciful to each other, so much so that an animal lifts its hoof away from its young lest it should hurt it.
