Fatwa session with Shaikh Ahmad Kutty: Sep. 21

Hijrah and other issues


The Forgotten Ones - Rohingya fundraising dinner: Sep. 23, 6:30 pm

Speaker: Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick | Tickets: $10
More than 140,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh since Aug. 25, amidst allegations of mass killings and the systematic burning of Rohingya villages by Myanmar security forces. Approximately 400 have been killed in the clashes, with 80% of those affected being women and children. An estimated 400,000 Rohingya are forced to live in schools and community centres, and refugee camps in Bangladesh. These people are now fleeing to a country that has been flooded and has left hundreds of thousands displaced and lacking access to basic food and clean water.

Healthcare for Rohingya Refugees - A Fundraiser by Dr. Nabiha Islam

On September 24 insha'Allah, Dr. Nabiha Islam will be leaving on a medical relief trip for three weeks to provide free healthcare to Rohingya refugees at the Hope Foundation's Hope Hospital on the border between Bangladesh and Burma. She has been working with the Hope Foundation for over 10 years and really believes in our power to create positive change together. They are the largest non-profit in the world started by Bangladeshis outside of Bangladesh. Jazaakallah for your support!

Back to School Health & Wellness Workshop: Sep. 30, 5:30pm

Confronting Islamophobia and racism

All praises are due to Allah, Lord of the worlds and may the peace and blessings of Allah be constantly showered upon our Beloved Prophet Muhammad forever.

As we move further into the 21st Century, the tensions and crises of the world are increasing by the day. Muslims, in the past, have always looked to the guidance of their Lord and the methodology of the Last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to bring light in the time of darkness. Continued...
