In the name of God, the all merciful, the especially merciful,

Dear neighbors, 

It is our pleasure to welcome your community to share a meal with us at our 3rd Annual Open House this Ramadan! In this holy month, Muslims around the world fast from sunrise to sunset. It is our tradition to share our evening meal with our friends and neighbors. 

God teaches us that neighborliness is a necessary part of righteousness. In that spirit, we are extending a special welcome to our neighboring churches and temples to break bread with us at our Open House on Saturday, May 18th at 6:30pm. 

Our communities are growing quickly, and they are looking to the examples we set. By coming together, we sincerely hope to use the bright rays of love and friendship to break through the clouds of ignorance and division. To sit, talk, and enjoy a meal together simply as friends, neighbors, and fellow human beings. 

We genuinely hope that you and your community will honor our invitation and join us. Please share the attached flyers on your community bulletin boards and newsletters. We would be delighted to receive a positive RSVP and look forward to meeting our neighbors.  For more information and to RSVP, please call/text Imam Abubakr at (541) 602-2820 or email

Many blessings,

Imam Abubakr Elgarguri
