Sisters’ Committee

The ICT Sisters’ Committee is multipurpose educational, dawah and charity arm for sisters to aid their community through good works and conduct. Our goal is to assist in the educational, social, and personal development of Muslim women by organizing programs and events that will inform, educate and unite us.

  • Through education and bi-monthly halaqat (study circles) various topics such as fiqh, sirah, women, parenting are explored.
  • Through dawah, we hope to promote a positive image of Islam to the public by providing information and education on Islamic practices and beliefs with a view to correct misinformation and misconceptions about Muslims, particularly the Muslim women.
  • Through Charity, The first Nashville Muslim food bank called the “Community Cupboard” was established to address the needs of those in the Muslim and Non Muslim communities. The Community Cupboard is always accepting donations to satisfy the needs of the community.  We are in need of your nicely used clothing for children, women and men.  Also Dry foods and other staples are greatly needed too.  If you would like to donate; contact us via email at sisters@theictn.org

We hope to help strengthen and better ourselves as mothers, wives, and sisters by learning the Quran/Sunnah, child-rearing advice, homemaking tips, marital advice, educational resources, health information and family happenings around town.
