Muslim Scholars Release Open Letter to ISIS / ISIL meticulously blasting its ideology
More than 120 Muslim scholars from around the world joined an open letter to the “fighters and followers” of the Islamic State, denouncing them as un-Islamic by using the most Islamic of terms.

Relying heavily on the Quran, the 18-page letter released Wednesday (Sept. 24) picks apart the extremist ideology of the militants who have left a wake of brutal death and destruction in their bid to establish a transnational Islamic state in Iraq and Syria.

Nihad Awad, center, executive director of the Council of American-Islamic Relations, and more than 10 Muslim-American leaders Wednesday (Sept. 24) endorse a letter written by more than 100 Islamic scholars that denounces ISIS by relying on sacred Muslims texts.

* All dates are not final, but very likely based on astronomical calculations. 
Dates will be declared as final on the announcement page as soon as ISNA announces them

Islamic Center's Policy in determining these dates:
The Islamic Center of East Lansing follows the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in determining the 1st day of Ramadan as well as the day for both the Eid festival days.
ISNA in turn is guided by the Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) in determining these dates.

1. For Ramadan and Eid-Al-Fitr, the FCNA uses astronomical calculations to determine the date.
2. For Eid-Al-Adha, the FCNA follows announcement by the Hajj authorities in Makkah and celebrate Eid-Al-Adha after the day of Arafah observed by the Hajj pilgrims
 
Eid Prayer Venue:
Based on the size of our congregation and several other factors such as parking, convenience, familiarity of venue and the community's feedback from a survey, Lansing Center in Downtown Lansing has been determined as the venue for our EId prayer and celebrations.

Lansing Center has been reserved as the venue for Eid prayers for the next 9 years for all but three of the dates listed in the table above.

Lansing Center Reservation Policy:
Contract with Lansing Center can be signed only 9 months before the date of use.
Until the contract is signed, a multi-day event can take precedence over our half day reservation.
As soon as we get into a 9 month window of the above dates, Lansing Center will issue the contract to the Islamic Center and the venue will be 'confirmed' for the Islamic Center.
Until the contract is signed, the Islamic Center reservation will be treated as a 'hold, pending confirmation'.


Why Eid Prayers are not held at the Islamic Center?
The Islamic Center is not an ideal venue for holding Eid prayers for the following reasons:
1. There is not enough room for the large number of prayer attendees. It is hazardous to have so many attendees inside the Islamic Center at one time from a safety standpoint
2. There isn't enough parking in the Islamic Center for all. While the University Lutheran Church has been generous allowing us to use their parking lot, it inconveniences their morning attendees.
3. Parking on the side streets of the Islamic Center in the neighborhood is not permissible per city of East Lansing code. Moreover, the traffic disturbs tranquility of the neighborhood. 



"And continue to remind, for surely the reminder profits the believers. " (verse 55 of Surah # 51: ADH-DHARIYAT)
