Help Flood victims in Pakistan
This is from one of our own board members who has just returned from the area: "Please donate to the flood victims. I saw great suffering in
Pakistan during my visit and we must do more to help." Please go to the

Regular Jum'a prayers at Atlanta Airport Chapel
If you ever happen to be at the Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta airport, work at the airport, know someone who works at the airport or
know of someone who knows someone at the aiport, please let them know that there is a full
fledged Juma'a every Friday @ 1:45 PM in the Interfaith Chapel. It purposely lasts until 2:15 to enable employees to return to their work
expediently. Please spread the word in order to ensure that this important service is not suspended for lack of attendance.
Islamic Calligraphy at Emory
And, this from a Br. Ahmed Gulamali: "As most of you are aware, in this negative political climate, it has become very difficult for
an established organization to support Muslim causes. So, when an organization does have courage to support and promote Muslim causes,
it is important for us Muslims to encourage and support such acts. Recently, Carlos Museum of Emory University has made a substantial
financial commitment and a significant allocation of its precious museum space in bringing a Quranic and calligraphy exhibit to Atlanta.
The "Islamic Calligraphy and the Qur'an" exhibit is currently underway and will continue now through December 5. Please forward this
email to others and encourage their friends and neighbors to attend. While the exhibition could be viewed any day of the week during
museum operating hours, museum has designated October 3rd as the family day and special program is being planned from noon to 4pm.
In addition to the above mentioned exhibition, other museum floors contain permanent Egyptian, Greek, and Roman collections that can
also be viewed while visiting Carlos. Further information about Islamic exhibition, museum location, parking information, and other
information could be obtained via the links below."
