TIC Update July 06, 2013

Dear Respected Community Member,

Asalaam-olaykum,

Ramadan preparation:

Insha-Allah based on the new moon (Hilal) sighting, the first Traweeh Prayers will be held either on Monday July 8th or Tuesday July 9th along with Isha prayers and our respected Sheikh Basem will lead the Traweeh prayers.

Currently Tracy Islamic Center (TIC) does not have a sufficient facility to hold large congregation prayers (Traweeh prayers) during the nighttime therefore for your convenience once again in this year the multipurpose hall at Traina Elementary School in Tracy has been reserved therefore to cover additional expenses we request every Muslim family from Tracy & Mountain House area to please donate $100 to towards the Ramadan expense.

Weekend Community Ifftar:

Tracy Islamic center has also reserved the hall at Traina School to hold community iftaars on the weekends in the month of Ramadan, if you would like to host a weekend iftaar alone or as a part of a group, please contact Br. Wajahat (510-378-4123) or Br. Saifi Raniwala (209-612-8194).

Daily Prayers at Tracy Islamic Center (TIC):

Alhumdullilah TIC is holding 5 daily prayers which lead by Sheikh Basem we encourage all the local Muslims please offer your daily salat in Jamaat (praying in congregation) at Tracy Islamic Center.

New Masjid Project:

Due to changing market conditions the estimated construction cost for phase-1A is about $1.47 million; currently we have approx. $150,000 in the bank. In order to start the construction, please help to raise $500,000 immediately so we can sustain the construction process.  Afterward we need to raise the remaining required funds to complete the construction.

We like to remind you that Alhumdullilah 2.59 acre lot has already been purchased plus we have also paid all the construction permits and project design related fees and now we have an opportunity to start the construction of a Masjid right from its foundation. This is a lifetime opportunity for a Sadqa-e-Jariya, we request you please come forward and donate as much as you can to build this urgently needed Masjid. We further request you please also ask your relatives and your friends to take part in this noble cause.

If you are not able to donate at this time Tracy Islamic Center also welcomes your Quard-e-hasana and Tracy Islamic Center will provide you the “Promissory Note” that your Quard-e-hasana will be paid back to you in future, please also request your family members and friends for a Quard-e-hasana for Masjid construction.

TIC as an Organization:

Alhumdullilah, now we have TIC Bylaws (the constitution) and we also have a team of volunteers as TIC Board of Directors. This team is serving the local Muslim community by not only managing the Tracy Islamic Center but also the New Masjid Project simultaneously.

As an organization, here are some important steps we need to achieve:

1-      Establishing TIC Board of Trustees
2-      Establishing new Board of Directors

Currently TIC General Body consists on  approx. 85 members and as per TIC record each of them has donated $240/= or more in the financial year ended on December 31, 2012 and these TIC members are living in Tracy and Mountain House areas. Based on their membership status these brothers and sisters will participate in TIC elections (in decision makings process) as a voter and as a candidate in the year 2013.

We encourage all Muslims who are living in Tracy & Mountain House areas and they are not yet TIC member, please become TIC member, pay your membership fee so you can participate in TIC decision making process in the year 2014. For more details please refer to TIC bylaws its copy is available on TIC website.
