“The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
“The upper hand is better than the lower hand (he who gives is better than him who takes). One should start giving first to his dependents. And the best object of charity is that which is given by a wealthy person (from the money left after his expenses). And whoever abstains from asking others for some financial help, Allah will give him and save him from asking others, Allah will make him self-sufficient.” (Al-Bukhari)
POSJETA INDIJSKE ZAJEDNICE
U subotu, 24.11.2018.g imali smo iznenadnu posjetu Indijske kršćanske zajednice iz Schiller Parka. Tom prilikom su donirali preko 1000 konzervi za “Food4Life”, od koje je polovina prebačena na novu RLC lokaciju koja je nastavila sa svojim radom ponedjeljkom. Direktor humanitarne djelatnosti Hasan Mavrić je gostima ukratko objasnio ko smo i odakle smo. Njihov lider je izrazio želju da se uključi u interfaith dijalog.

ANNUAL INTERFAITH THANKSGIVING LUNCH
Our Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Lunch held at Sabah Islamic and Cultural Center in cooperation with Resurrection Lutheran Church presents us a powerful and inspiring way to connect face to face with people. Franklin Park’s Mayor Barrett Pedersen who attended the lunch becomes more aware than ever before of the religious diversity in our midst.
GODIŠNJI MEĐUVJERSKI THANKSGIVING RUČAK
Naš godišnji ručak zahvalnosti koji se održava u Islamskom i kulturnom centru u Sabahu u saradnji sa Lutheranskom crkvom predstavlja moćan i inspirativan način povezivanja licem u lice s ljudima. Gradonačelnik Franklin Parka Barrett Pedersen koji je prisustvovao ručku, postao je svjesniji nego ikada ranije stepena vjerske raznolikosti u našoj sredini.
