What if CAIR isn't there. . .

  • when your child is bullied in school?
  • when you face discrimination in the workplace?
  • when you and your family are profiled at the airport?
  • when a political leader panders to anti-Muslim bigots?
  • when an anti-Islam bill is introduced in your state's legislature?

We are now in the last 10 days of Ramadan, a period in which blessings for good deeds are multiplied many times.

 

CAIR needs to raise $530,799 in this period to meet our Ramadan fundraising goal and to be there when you need us. Will you do your part?

 

One hadith states: "(The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) would strive (to do acts of worship) during the last 10 days of Ramadan more than he would at any other time."

 

Why not gain additional blessings for yourself and your family these last days of Ramadan by sending your zakat or sadaqah to CAIR, the nation's leading Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization?

As-Salaamu Alaykum and Ramadan Mubarak


The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: "Actions are judged (by Allah swt) according to the intention behind them, and everyone is (rewarded for) what he intended." And as we all know, the blessings for good deeds performed during Ramadan are multiplied 70 times.

I ask you to make your intention today to do your part this Ramadan -- the month of giving and of multiplied rewards for that giving – by supporting CAIR’s vital work with your zakat and donation.

Just as fasting is a shield against evil, CAIR professionals work every day to be a shield for your civil rights and against hate targeting Islam and the Muslim community.

Our fundraising goal for the first 10 days of Ramadan is $450,000. Can I count on you RIGHT NOW? This year, the need is greater than any time in the past.

Ibn Abbas said: "The Prophet was the most generous of all the people, and he used to become (even) more generous in Ramadan."

A message of thanks from Nihad Awad

 

 

 

As-salaamu alaykum.

I'm Nihad Awad, CAIR's national executive director.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, "He who does not thank people, does not thank Allah."

That is why I would like to take a moment today to thank you, our supporters. It is because of you that we are able to serve the thousands of people who contact CAIR for help.

You were there to offer support when CAIR challenged unconstitutional anti-Islam bills introduced in state legislatures nationwide and when we sued to protect the right of all Americans to travel freely.

You were there to offer the resources necessary for CAIR to research and publish this past September a first-of-its kind exposé of the massive financing behind a growing Islamophobia machine in America. In May, you were there when CAIR distributed new safety guidelines to thousands of mosques and Islamic institutions to help protect against hate crimes.

In 2013, you provided the support CAIR needed to host dozens of seminars and workshops serving thousands of people on issues such as bullying of Muslim youth, building better relations with media professionals and exercising your civil and political rights as American citizens.

I thank you and ask you to renew your support for CAIR's important work on your behalf by going to cair.com and donating whatever you can to help sustain our efforts.

No contribution is too small. All are appreciated, and all donations to CAIR are tax-deductible and zakat-eligible.

Thanks again, and I hope you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving.

May God bless you. As-salaamu alaykum.

Eid greetings from CAIR

Eid-al-Adha-2013


Do you have your ticket yet?

Time is almost up!

As-salaamu 'alaikum,

Time is almost up to reserve your place at CAIR's banquet this Saturday in Arlington, Va. Tickets usually sell out by Friday, but this year they're going FAST. No tickets will be sold at the door, so register right now to reserve your place. We'd love to have you join us!

Our theme this year is "Faith in Freedom," and we're excited to welcome South African Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool as our keynote speaker. Ambassador Rasool was closely involved in his country's anti-apartheid struggle, and he has wonderful insights to share about the importance of Muslims taking an active role in social justice movements.

Another featured speaker at the banquet is Imam Siraj Wahhaj, one of the nation's top inspirational Muslim leaders and motivators. We'll end the evening on a high note with comedy from Preacher Moss.

CAIR's banquet will also celebrate the accomplishments of Muslim leaders and groups, including presenting a lifetime achievement award to Dr. Sayyid Syeed and the first "American Muslim of the Year" award to Linda Sarsour.

We're working hard to make this evening inspiring and entertaining, and we can't wait to see you there, inshaAllah!

Saturday, September 28
5:30 p.m.
Crystal Gateway Marriott
1700 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA
