Final Letter to Community (23-Jun-2019)
The ICOLC has transferred management of the mosque at this time to the Southern New Mexico Islamic Center. We are at the end of our transition. The ICOLC is a separate organization and we can no longer do announcements for the SNMIC. Please email Brother Amer Raidadah, the SNMIC secretary, at the following email address or use this subscription link (http://eepurl.com/gvEaBL) to be added to the SNMIC email address list:
email@example.com. We have written NAIT for the documentation for the SNMIC organization to pick up management of the mosque with its newly elected Board under recently adopted Bylaws. NAIT is requesting a few more documents, which should be final soon.
Please find attached the letter to NAIT, and the SNMIC Bylaws as approved by the community, and adopted. Please contact the SNMIC for payment of dues, subcommittees, or mosque management. The ICOLC has taped the donation boxes temporarily so that all visitors to the mosque will stop making donations to the ICOLC for any and all mosque purposes. All SNMIC dues payments have been transferred to the SNMIC treasurer, in full. All initial fees and expenses for the SNMIC start up were donated by various members of the community. Much
thanks to all of them.
We will be transferring our Imam fund to the SNMIC only to be used for the purpose for which it was donated by the community. The Cemetery fund will be used for the purpose for which specifically donated. Phase 1 has been completed and Phase 2 has been started, and contracted to be completed soon, InshaAllah. The general fund is low and should cover final utilities, minor expenses to finalize the transition process. We have a small fund with NAIT,
which we will transfer to the SNMIC.
The ICOLC will continue with our outreach booth, and interfaith and charity work, in the short term. We are leaving all our organizations’ inventory, general supplies and equipment currently at the mosque for the community and the SNMIC. We will donate to the SNMIC, remaining items of a canopy, portable speaker, and projector when we are done using them.
Thank you to the community for all the years of blessings in managing the mosque, and how far we have come, Alhamdulillah. May Allah reward each one of you for your generous and steadfast support of the ICOLC over many years. May Allah, Subhanahu wa Taala, help the
SNMIC administration to do the best work for the entire community.
