In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful
The Islamic Society of Tampa Bay Area will dedicate all of its resources for the service of Allah (God), Lord of all mankind, most Merciful. We will, with his help, establish a peaceful and brotherly center which caters to the spiritual and educational needs of all Muslims. We will adhere to the teachings of our beloved Prophet (Peace be upon him) i.e. to love our Muslim brothers and sisters and avoid all factional, racial, and national prejudices in everything we do.
We proclaim to our community at large that we will be honest, clean, benevolent, honorable, respectful, and the best of neighbors. We support justice, family values, honesty, truthfulness, mercy for the young, care for the old, and charity for the poor, following the steps for Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), whom Allah sent as a mercy to all mankind.
We are bound by our oath to Allah to love and support the oppressed by prayer and peaceful humanitarian aid. We reject any treachery or violence, as it is our oath with Allah before it is with mankind.
Our struggle is teaching our principles, caring for the sick and feeding the needy, whether Muslim or Non-Muslim, and honoring our oath to Allah as well as to our fellow citizens.
We encourage and pray for all Muslims to support and establish their own economical, social, professional, and communal association, although it is not our primary goal.
