CAIR Columbus 13th Annual Fundraising Banquet 2010
Our CAIR-Columbus 13th Annual Fundraising Banquet featuring keynote speaker Imam Siraj Wahhaj and Muslim comedian Azhar Usman is at the North West Marriott in Dublin, Ohio (http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/cmhnw-columbus-marriott-northwest) on Saturday, March 20th at 6pm. Tickets are $30 a person and are currently available at the office. (call 614-451-3232 to order)
In addition, we are taking business and individual sponsorships for the banquet, which is a great opportunity to be recognized amongst the Muslims of Columbus, Ohio as well as Non-Muslims that will be attending the event inshallah. Whatever you have given in the past is much appreciated (Jazak Allah Khairan), however we are asking you to double what you gave last year to help us be able to keep pushing for Muslim Civil Rights & Advocacy in America.
Your help and cooperation is very important to us and it is much appreciated, without your help in the way of Allah (swt) we would not be here to serve you and the community. We as a community need to help each other so that we may become "like a mountain":
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "If anyone gives in charity something equal to a date from his honestly earned money--for nothing ascends to God except good--then God will take it in His Right (Hand) and bring it up for its owner as anyone of you brings up a baby horse, until it becomes like a mountain...Nothing ascends to God except good." - Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 9, Number 525B
