2020 was a challenging year for the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo. While in-person programming was limited, that did not stop us from continuing our mission to serve the needs of our community. The Council has worked diligently to assess those needs and provide space, virtual and actual, to deliver many services. It is our intention for the Center to continue to be the shining light for the Muslim community in future generations, as it has been since its inception, in the greater Toledo area. Despite the challenges we face, we feel that we are on the verge for many more successes, thanks to the incredible support of our community.
With the leadership of Imam Ahmad Deeb, we have continued to spread our wings and the message of Islam to more and more members of our community. Whether it be youth, seniors, young professionals, converts to the faith, or non-Muslims, we have tried to leave no one behind in our mission. The ICGT has always stood for the highest standards and continued to deliver in 2020 more than ever. The scholarship of our dynamic religious director, Imam Deeb, has brought more positive attention and feedback towards the Center than any time in the recent past, and we could not be prouder of his accomplishments.
We expanded our programming to meet our goals so the youth, in particular, strengthen their identity. Recognizing that more resources were needed to accomplish this goal, we brought in Ustadh Ismail Bowers to specifically focus on ages 8-18 years. Insh’Allah, he will continue to be a more integral part of the community in 2021, as he expands his program offerings.
We expect the masjid to be up and running by the summer of 2021 and will be launching programming to cultivate religious literacy and holistic educational development for the whole family.
