SFL Muslim Federation Update: Bylaws Meeting
July 1st, 2018: Sustaining, and growing. We are very thankful to Allah Almighty for allowing us to come together yet again to set the foundations for the future of the South Florida Muslim Federation. Alhamdulillah!
The By-laws task force, formed by the member organizations back in April, gave a detailed report on their recommendations regarding the voting and membership aspects of the Bylaws. The task force consisted of the following members: Leila Shatara, Malika Abdurahman, Mohammed Sanhaji, Wilfredo Ruiz, Dr Husman Khan, Khalid Mirza, and Afifa Khaliq.
With some minor tweaks and wording adjustments, the task force recommendations were unanimously accepted by all attending members. In addition, we opened up to the floor for any other comments / concerns in any portion of the bylaws. These suggestions were all noted, and will be incorporated into the final bylaws draft, which will be sent out in august. The final vote to complete the bylaws will occur in the next Bi-annual meeting on Oct 7th, 2018, Inshallah.
We would like to also extend a whole-hearted welcome to our 2 new member organizations: Islamic Jafferia Association, and Islamic School of Miami! Both have confirmed yesterday their intention to become official members of the federation. May Allah bless these 2 Islamic Centers, and all the Islamic centers and organizations who are participating to form this new platform. This brings the total membership count to 25 organizations, Alhamdulillah. All Praise to Allah for the tremendous blessings He has Bestowed upon us. Inshallah more members are in the works, if your organization has not yet signed up; don’t be the last, contact the Executive committee today so we can help you sign up.
