News & Events
In addition to the food distribution all year long, during the month of Ramadan and at the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha, this year at Thanksgiving, as a gesture of good will, friendship and care towards the less fortunate in the community, the Women’s and Social affairs committee arranged to distribute turkeys on behalf of Islamic Foundation, like every year. The turkey giveaway has grown through the years, the money is donated by the community members for this project.
This year almost 100 free turkeys were sent to Wheaton pantry, South side Jama Masjid, Villa Park Church, Glynn Ellyn pantry and a few needy families by our volunteers.
This year MLA also joined hands in this project. Our goal is continue to stretch all of the food drive to all corners of Illinois throughout the year and with your help Inshallah, this is possible.
This Community Forum will discuss ways to cope and learn about practical ways you can help. The program will include an opportunity to voice individual concerns, as well as to learn from community leaders representing several organizations. Guest speakers include: Ahmed Rehab
(CAIR), Tahera Ahmad
(Northwestern), Mahrukh Hussain
(Esq.), and Azam Nizamuddin
Invite your friends & family via FB. We look forward to seeing you inshaá Allâh on the 4th of December!

42nd Annual Fund Raising Dinner
Dear Community members we at Islamic Foundation would like to thank each and every one of you for showing your continuous support. Alhumdolillah! The Annual Fund raising dinner was a great success attended by 450 guests at the Double Tree Hotel in Oakbrook, IL.
The program began with Qirat by Hamza Ehtesham and translation of Sura-e-Rahman by Simone Khalil. Chairman Aftab Khan’s Address was followed by reorganization of long time board of trustees Dr Hamid Ali Khan and Br Mohammed Razaq for their life time services to the Foundation by Sr Sameena Shoukathullah. Dr Umar Faruq Abd-Allah gave a very inspiring and motivational speech that captured the hearts of the audience. Imam Hisham al Qaisi served as the fund raiser followed by Dinner. After Dinner the audience enjoyed melodious nasheeds by Shaykh Ibrahim Dardasawi of ICW. Last but not least young Br Zayd Ahmed did an excellent job throughout the program as an MC.
At this occasion we also remember the loss this year of the late and dear Dr Nasurallah Basha and his contributions and services to the Foundation.
We would also like to say that we would not have gotten as far as we have without the will of Allah! Swt. and without the help and support of all community members and our dedicated members of all committees and chair persons, faculty, staff, sponsors and volunteers. May Allah (SWT) reward each and every one of your sincere intentions and actions.
Boy Scouts Hot Dog Fundraiser
Our very own Islamic Foundation Boy Scout Troop 99 had a successful fundraiser last Sunday morning (November 6, 2016) at at the main entrance, Mashallah. They sold Halal Hot Dogs, Popcorn, Chips, and Drinks. They are raising funds to get a portable 8x12 trailer that is needed for campouts to store and transport their camping supplies and gear.
Mashallah they organized the sale, created the shopping lists, set up all of the burners, set up a tent, cooked the Halal Hot Dogs, set the price points, and ran the entire sale. The adult leaders were there as supervisors and helpers only.
Alhamdulillah they sold out of Halal Hot Dogs! They made a total of over $500. Almost a quarter way to the full fees needed for the trailer.
Support Scouting in your community! And if you are in the Suburbs of Chicago, join Troop 99!
