Assalam u Alaikum! Dear Muslims of South Calgary,

On behalf of ICSC Election Committee, we would like to update the Muslims community of south Calgary that only five candidates were nominated and acclaimed positions in board. There were not more than one nominations competing for same position in the board. So, elections scheduled for July 30th will NOT be held.

We congratulate the new ICSC board members and thank them for stepping for the Muslims community.

We would like to thank the departing members of the current ICSC Board for their time, efforts and commitment to the community service over the past 2 years. The board under leadership of Adnan Sami successfully delivered the necessary religious and social community services during the tenure despite COVID-19 and economic challenges. Getting approval for the ICSC Masjid construction was this Board’s historic achievement, with the help of community. May Allah reward them multifold.

Positions acclaimed by new ICSC Board Members for 2 years term, effective officially from August 1st 2023:

  •  Haseeb Ur Rehman Siddiqi – President
  • Muhammad Arslan Asim – Vice President
  • Malik Sabir – Treasurer
  • Khaled Elmalawanay – Director
  • Momtaz Ali – Director
  • Haroun Yussuf – Director
  • Awais Rafiq – Director
  • Basma Kholoussi – Director

We would like to especially thank the ICSC Election committee: Farooq Qadir (Chair), Nadeem Butt (members), Muhammad Faisal Chaudhary (members) for conducting the fair election process. Jazak Allah..!
