In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

The Islamic Humanitarian Service (I.H.S.) was founded in 1984 with various goals in mind - however at the heart of it, our principle aim is best conveyed through our timeless motto:

“To Serve the Lord and Mankind.”

To the respected believers in North America

Peace be upon you.

The Crescent Committee of the Council of Shia Muslim Scholars of North America announces that Tuesday, the 15th of September 2015, will be the first day of Dhul-Hijjah, 1436 AH for the United States and the southern regions of Canada.

This determination is based on the fact that there were reported sightings of the crescent moon by the naked eye during the sunset of Monday, the 14th of September from many locations. Based on that:

  • The Day of Arafa will be Wednesday, September 23, 2015.
  • The Day of Eid al-Adha will be Thursday, September 24, 2015.

We ask Allah (swt) to accept our good deeds, to return all Hajjis to their lands and families safely, and to hasten the Return of Our Master, Imam Mahdi (ajfs).

Important Islamic events in this month:

  • 7th (September 21): Martyrdom of Imam al-Baqir (as), 114 AH

Introduction to Islam

Dennis Wholley meets Imam Hassan Qazwini, leader of the Islamic Centre in Dearborn, Michigan, to discuss the fundamental beliefs of Islam, and remove any misconceptions the general public may have. Many  Non-muslims have the idea that the Islamic clerics and leaders are hostile and unapproachable, however Dennis Wholley shows that the Islamic leaders (Imams) are normal people like you and I, striving for a better future for upcoming generations.
