There was a huge fire in the town of Paradise California on November 8th 2018 which completely wiped out the entire town and left 80,000 homeless. Subhan Allah, it is a test not just for the victims but for others as well to see how we react. Insha Allah, Ilm Academy will be having a bake sale on Wednesday, 11/21/2018 at the Gym Area in all effort to do all we can to help. All proceeds from the Bake Sale will be donated to the fire victims. Ilm Academy has decided to cancel its regularly held sandwich drive and opted to hold the bake sale instead.
