From the desk of the President
Dear Respected Brothers and Sisters,
Asalaam Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatu,
Our team at ISGH has been working hard. We have increased our programming and our outreach efforts and are doing our best to ensure that the Houston Muslim community is well represented in our city.
We rely on Allah for our success. However, we also pray that our community supports our new efforts by empowering us to do more. Increased outreach and
programming require increased resources. If you like the efforts you are seeing, let us know by your donations. To support this work please donate to the ISGH Main Center Office and select "Outreach & Community Programs" or write "Outreach" in the memo section of your check.
You can donate online here.
