As-salaamu ‘alaykum; peace be with you all.
Welcome to the virtual home of the Islamic Society of Santa Barbara (ISSB). Here, you can learn about Santa Barbara’s local Muslim community, find information about our events and services, and discover opportunities for interfaith understanding. We are honored to have you, appreciate that you have come to learn about us, and look forward to learning about you. Please feel free to join us at our events and prayer services, and to contact us with any questions about Islam or Muslims in Santa Barbara.
We pray for the victims of the mass shootings that occurred on Friday, March 15 at Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Mosque and stand in solidarity with the New Zealand Muslim community as they go through this tragedy. The victims of this act of mass violence were innocent people gathered for their congregational prayers, just as those in Quebec, Pittsburgh and Charleston were.
Nobody should be made to fear to practice their faith or attend their place of worship.
Life is the only thing in this world that is irreplaceable. We must value and treasure lives Each one of us can help by; committing to speak the truth-particularly to power, make decisions on principle and not self-interest, give to others what we want for selves and by being just and compassionate in all our thoughts and actions.
