Sadaqah / Zakaah Form

Assalamu alaikum,



ICLP will be implementing a new Sadaqa / Zakaah application form very soon.  
Over the past year we have gotten many request via phone calls and letters from people in town and from well out of town asking for Sadaqa.  It is growing rather difficult to track these request and verify the veracity of each request without proper identifying information.

“As-Sadaqaat (here it means Zakaah) are only for the Fuqaraa’ (poor), and Al-Masaakeen (the poor) and those employed to collect (the funds); and to attract the hearts of those who have been inclined (towards Islam); and to free the captives; and for those in debt; and for Allaah’s Cause (i.e. for Mujaahidoon — those fighting in a holy battle), and for the wayfarer (a traveller who is cut off from everything); a duty imposed by Allaah. And Allaah is All-Knower, All-Wise”

[al-Tawbah 9:60]


Zakaah means worshipping Allaah by giving that which He has enjoined of different kinds of zakaah to those who are entitled to them, according to the guidelines prescribed in sharee’ah. 

Sadaqah means worshipping Allaah by giving money without that being made obligatory in sharee’ah. The word sadaqah is sometimes used to refer to obligatory zakaah. 


For the Sadaqah, the responsibility falls upon the individual giver to verify the veracity of the need or to not do so.  For the Zakaah collected by the Masjid, the board is responsible.  ICLP will use the form for distribution to any requester of any collected Sadaqah and/or Zakaah.  In general ICLP does not collect Sadaqah but we can if anyone wants ICLP to be the distributor.

Halaqa 2014

Alhamdulillah, Allah has blessed a member our community with the willingness to share the knowledge that is imparted upon him by Allah’s mercy.

Time is of the essence for everyone of us and brother Assif is spending much of his available time studying the deen.  We, as a community, need to take part in gaining knowledge and learning from others.

Brother Assif will begin hosting a weekly Halaqa at 8:00 pm at the Masjid.  This is every Friday starting on April 11.  These Halaqas will primarily be young adult to adult centered.  ICLP will begin to host Sunday schools for the younger crowd soon Insha Allah.

The Quran was revealed throughout a period of about 23 years. The Prophet (PBUH) received the first revelation in 610CE, in the Cave of Hira in the city of Makkah in Arabia.The first revelation was the first five verses of Surah (chapter) Al-Alaq: “Iqra bismi rabbikalla dhi khalaq. Khalaqal insana min alaq. Iqra wa rabbukal akram. Alladhi ‘allama bil qalam. ‘Allamal insana malam ya’lam, ” which means “Read in the name of your Lord who created, created man from a clot. Read, for your Lord is most Generous, Who teaches by means of the pen, teaches man what he does not know.” (96: 1-5)


Please join us at the Masjid for these beneficial learning sessions.
