(In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
Welcome to ISOS
Welcome to Islamic Social Services of Oregon State (ISOS). Our mission is to provide you with information on the community's needs, activities and services.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), the Messenger of Allah (Arabic for One God) was asked: "Who is the dearest person to Allah?" He said: "Those who are most useful to (other) people." Thus in another tradition the Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said: "And Allah will surely help the person as long as he helps his brother."
To accomplish this goal, ISOS, a social service organization, has allied itself with other local humanitarian organizations, community centers and mosques in order to establish effective means to service others. Following are the primary areas of service rendered by ISOS:
- Refugee Services:
Sponsors and assist refugees in acclimating themselves within a designated timeframe until they become self-sufficient.
- Needy Assistance:
Provides assistance when misfortunate occurs, such as inability to pay bills due to loss of income and family abandonment.
- Family Crisis:
Assists as arbitrators and facilitators when family separation, dispute and death occur.
- Alliance Support:
Work with other service organizations, community centers and mosques to leverage and centralize resources and services.
All board members of ISOS serve on volunteer basis; therefore over 97% of your tax-deducted contributions (Zakat/Sadaqa) are distributed to those in need.
May Allah Bless and Guide us in all our endeavors in serving His Cause.
