WOMEN ADVOCACY

IFN Islamic Foundation North  is committed towards providing outlets for all of the members to have a voice. In doing so, and in accordance with the by-laws, IFN does have a Women Advocacy Committee.

IFN Women Advocacy Committee wishes you in advance a happy and blessed Ramadan. May Allah (SWT) blesses us all. The committee worked tirelessly over weeks, to offer programs that can foster family friendly environment during the holy month of Ramadan at IFN. The main goal is to provide an opportunity for the members to pray in peace to reach the highest level of "Khoushoua".

UPCOMING EVENTS

Asalamu alaikum, IFN Community members, from the IFN WAC:

We meet monthly for lively discussion with a problem-solving approach regarding any concerns brought to the committee, and to discuss and plan projects and events based upon our discussions. Subcommittees open to work on projects at times that are convenient for them.

This model works very well as women are welcome to participate at the level that works best for them. Some attend the meetings to get to know other IFN women and participate in the lively discussions, and others take advantage of the opportunity to lead a project, and practice leadership skills. Others enjoy working on projects and seeing an idea someone has brought to the committee grow from large group discussion to actuality at IFN.

Our biggest project this year was the Ramadan Children’s Program led by Loubna Kiliouine. Naheed Kahn also co-led in the basement area during Ramadan and Dr. Fehmida Co-led by keeping order in the Ladies’ Prayer area upstairs. So many volunteers joined in AlhamduAllah and the entire community benefitted from the creative children’s activities and the peaceful prayer tone set in the ladies’ section.

Another fun project was assisting Emane Hamdan with the Ladies' Swim

Projects we’re currently working on include:

  • Ladies Luncheon - Nov. 15th: 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  • Ladies Hijab Celebration - January 20th
  • Women's Religious Discussion Series - Coming in 2018
  • IFN Care Team - Training to Open Soon, Date TBA


Note: Please try to register your kids to avoid the crowd and to reserve a spot in the babysitting/ kids programs

There will be few new rules and guidelines during the entire month of Ramadan (please see attached Brochure)

The committee is making babysitting arrangements for kids between 2 and 4 years of age thru semi-professional staff for a minimal one-time fee of $30 for the month. Another exciting Ramadan Kids Club program will be offered for kids between 4 and 8 years old, which again will be for $30 for the whole month per family. So please avail these services provided by the Women Advocacy Committee and register your kids accordingly (Registration Form attached)

Children who are 8yrs old and up should be under the direct supervision of parents. No kid will be allowed to roam in and around the masjid by themselves during prayer times.

Please kindly cooperate and ensure that your child is placed in a safe environment while you offer your Salah in peace.

Lastly volunteers throughout the masjid will be checking on unsupervised kids to ensure their safety and they will be guided to the designated programs.

The committee highly appreciate your cooperation, should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let the EC know.
