Special Announcement

The Islamic Association of Raleigh is pleased to announce the initiation of the development of Triangle Muslim Center "TMC". AlhamdolillAllah IAR owns a 25-acre parcel of land at Page Road, in Morrisville. It is a prime location (4 miles from airport & 13 miles from IAR) and can fulfill our needs for future educational institutions and have recreational, business and social facilities. An Ad Hoc committee is working to establish a Musallah on this land before the end of this year Insha’Allah. We will conduct community-wide survey soon. After community feedback we will set priorities and develop a phased master plan. Please make dua' and donate generously for this project. More information will be provided as it becomes available.

Imam Selection Committee Update

The Imam selection committee is continuing to accept and review Imam candidates. After identifying two candidates who met all the criteria, passed the interview process and also visited the community we made an offer to one of them. Unfortunately after negotiations the offer was not accepted. Since January we have received more than twenty new applicants and conducted live video interviews with three of them. In all we have reviewed 70 applications, of these 52 did not meet our criteria. Of the remaining group of 18 we conducted 13 Skype interviews.The majority of the applicants do not have work authorization in the US and are filtered out because of this requirement. At this time there are no outstanding candidates we are planning to invite to the community.

Base Selection Criteria:
Thorough understanding of issues that Muslims are facing in the United States
Formally educated in Fiqh or recognized as a Fiqh scholar by the Fiqh Committee of ISNA
Authorized to work in the US (except in exceptional cases)
Demonstrated leadership ability
