Hunger-Relief Service Day in Partnership with the Central Texas Food Bank:  Sharing Our Compassion this Eid-al-Adha Weekend with Austin-Area Families in Need

"Believe in Allah and His messenger, and spend (in charity)..." Quran (57:7); “(The righteous are those) who feed the poor, the orphan..."  Quran (76:8-9).  Muslim Space believes that the collective participation in service projects strengthens our Muslim community’s internal bonds and fosters unity across our larger Austin community, while simultaneously promoting the beauty and core values of Islam.  Let’s join together to work with the Central Texas Food Bank and share our COMPASSION this Eid-al-Adha weekend with Austin-area families in need.
