It is with great regret to inform all of you that the Executive Council (EC) of ICTC has formally accepted imam Hamada Elsehmawy's (aka Mohamed Elsehmawy) resignation as announced by him during Friday speech on May 19th 2017. 

It has been a pleasure working with him over the past few years. On behalf of the community, we would like to thank him and wish him the very best in all his future endeavors. 

Please note that this was solely his decision and was a surprise to the EC as well as to the community. 

It is important to state that brother Mohamed Elsehmawy no longer represents the ICTC, its Executive Council, or as its Imam/Leader in any official or non official setting, written or verbal communication. We realize that several members of this community and throughout the state of Washington may still approach him as the Imam of ICTC. In that situation, they must be informed of the change in status. 


Alhamdulillah, with the grace of God, brother Guleeb from Oakland, CA graciously agreed to spend Ramadan with us and lead taraweeh prayer on an ultra short notice but for permanent imam position, we will inshAllah formally advertise for this job after Ramadan. 

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of the Executive

Council members.


Again, we thank him for his efforts all these years and wish him the very best. 

Executive Council
