TIC Weekend Community Iftaar

In the Holy month of Ramadan month, sharing your Iftar is very important and feeding someone Iftar as form of charity is very rewarding. It was also the practice of our beloved prophet Muhammad  .
Tracy Islamic Center is providing the opportunity to our Muslim community members to share their Iftar with others on the weekends. Sharing Iftar can be achieved by sponsoring the weekend Iftar.
We expect about 200 people to attend the community iftars on weekends at Traina Elementary School.  Water and ice will be provided & a group of volunteers will help with setup and cleanup of the school hall.  
Weekend Iftars can be sponsored as following ways:
1) One person / one family / a group of muslims can host one or more iftar. (you provide all food and paper products.  
2) You can also pay any amount towards weekend Iftar. TIC will use that fund to order food and other material to have an Iftar.
Please contact following brothers for more details: 
Br. Saifi Raniwala (209) 612-8194
  or
Br. Wajahat Hussain (510) 378-4123
Please Note: A Few weekend day Iftars have already been sponsored. There will be no community Iftar for the days when no sponsor or contributor is found.
Please contact TIC Iftar committee members immediately to take part in this opportunity.
Jazak Allah,
