In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful and all praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and Allah's greetings upon Muhammad and his pure Household.
Introduction: An initiative was taken a year ago with a clear vision and direction of serving the community. In less than one year, the work has expanded to a good number of affiliates who all believe such endeavors are a true need of the community from the core of their hearts.
Affiliates: Consulting a number of experts revealed this common thread: their quest to build an ideal community, a community blessed with the holy and pure faith. In the background of this zeal is the light from Minaa (Sacrifice of Hazrat Ibraheem – AS and Hazrat Ismaeel – AS) and especially and lives of all Prophets, Shuhada, Siddiqeen and Saleheen.
Overall Expectations and Results: All Solutions Team is experiencing success in awakening the community to address the environment of isolation and lack of communication among the community members in general.

People are able to advance in their professional careers with nominal verbal guidance and network. It is very encouraging that all Islamic Centers are very much excited to come close and are very positively joining hands together to address community concerns.
