Whether volunteering at local events or supporting small businesses, the Dawoodi Bohras are making a significant impact and setting a positive example for all of us. It is an honor to attend the Eid unity dinner and celebrate the end of Ramadan with this incredible community.” 

Since the construction of Burhani Masjid in Farmington Hills, community members have been involved in local activities such as local charitable and social events held by C.A.R.E.S. and Zaman International.
