Just reach into your heart and give your love to Muslims all around and if you want to Join our Team at ICNA Houston, please do so and share the love.
Here are the events that are UPCOMING, insha’Allah..
CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME
Share your Eid blessings with your family. Eid isn’t just about eating and relaxing, it is about giving and sacrificing animals properly. Qurbani (Udhiya) is a sacrifice that is offered at the time of Eid al-Adha to commemorate the life of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), show gratitude towards Allah , and to provide for the poor and needy.
The Prophet Muhammad was once asked by his Companions: “O Prophet of Allah! What is this qurbani?” He replied, “It is the Sunnah of your father Ibrahim (AS).”
(Hadith – Ibn Majah).
Here are 3 reasons why you should offer udhiya through ICNA Relief:
– The slaughtering would be done on behalf of the name you specify.
– The meat would be properly distributed to the underprivileged in Houston.
– The meat is distributed immediately after Eid.
THE JOY OF HAPPINESS
Join us at the EID CARNIVAL on October 4th at the Islamic Outreach Center. Make the most out of your Eid and bring your family out too. There’s something for everyone and we assure that you will have a great time! Don’t miss out because Eid only comes twice a year.

The joy that comes from helping people is truly beyond words.
