Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. I want to thank all of you who have supported say tuna, and to remind you that the end of the year is coming. And this is a time that's extremely important for the college because it's a time that we ask for your continued support. And for those of you who might be new to say tuna, or haven't some more or less in the past that you think about, inshallah, helping us to continue this endeavor to establish, in perpetuity, a college for the Muslims in the United States.
