FOCUS – IT’S A JOURNEY  Weekly Sisters’ halaqa with Ustadha Shehnaz Karim, 6:30-8:30 pm
So often, we forget that Islam is not a standing place, it’s a Path. Our experience of Islam, then, is a journey, as we walk this Straight Path towards our Lord, each day encountering new sights and sounds, each day coming closer. Consider this halaqa a chance to reflect on your journey thus far, gain direction for upcoming sections of the path, and take strength from the companionship of fellow travellers.

Friday

MUHAMMAD ﷺ | Friend and Companion

Weekly halaqa with Shaykh Hamdi Ben Aissa, 6-9 pm

It is essential to study the character of the Prophet ﷺ. We need to do so in order to re-define who he ﷺ is to us. We need to understand how the first generation of believers viewed the Messenger ﷺ: as Beloved, as Friend, as Father. Without this understanding, we will never be able to fully appreciate his Message.

This subject is for all levels of learners, from the beginner to the mature student of knowledge. In reality, one can never get enough of hearing about the Beloved ﷺ.
