By now, many of you have heard that Imam Tahir Anwar has resigned from his role at the South Bay Islamic Association (SBIA). Alhamdulillah, Imam Tahir has led SBIA for many years, and he is an integral part of our history. Whether serving as our religious director, teaching classes, guiding groups for Hajj, or in some other capacity, Imam Tahir has become well-regarded for his leadership and knowledge not only throughout the Bay Area, but nationally, as well.
Please know that we are working hard to find a way to address Imam Tahir's personal needs going forward. Meanwhile, we ask for your patience and prayers during this challenging time. We will update the community once we have identified mutually agreeable next steps, Insha-Allah.

In a period of fourteen centuries of Islam, 35 years is a mere speck. An organization that was founded to meet the needs of a nascent Muslim community in Silicon Valley in 1979 has nurtured successive generations and spawned sister organizations. With a mission to serve our deen with the color of an American identity, SBIA has thrived with the blessings of Allah SWT and the participation of the community.
During these last 35 years, SBIA has grown from modest beginnings in a small home to a 70,000-square foot community center. We have seen some of our founders return to meet their Maker, enjoyed the continued participation of long-time supporters (many now with grandchildren!), and welcomed many new community members from across the world.
The journey from a small mosque to a beacon that invites the community-at-large has been filled with lessons, gratitude, humility, camaraderie, and challenges. In this center, we can truly see the three aspects of the hadith of the Sadaqah-Jariyah come to life: An enduring charity, beneficial knowledge, and righteous children raised by a community.
To give thanks to our Lord, and to appreciate those that have made this journey a remarkable one, SBIA will host a very special event on Saturday, March 28, 2015 at the Santa Clara Marriott.
Invited guests include statewide and local civic officials, dignitaries, scholars, world-renowned nasheed artists and many others. A commemorative journal is planned for this occasion.
Mark your calendars -- March 28, 2015 -- this event will sell out, so ensure that you're a part of it!
There are three seats on the SBIA Board of Directors and one seat on the SBIA Board of Trustees whose term is expiring at the end of 2014. Accordingly, now is the time to nominate qualified individuals for these positions.

This weekly discussion series aims to orient one’s internal compass towards God. Covering a variety of topics (including current events, day to day fiqh questions, hadith, etc), Imam Tahir Anwar will discuss the primary goal of a Muslim: How to become rooted in faith in order to become closer to God.
