Come one come all dear brothers! Each week we will discuss key issues that affect us on a daily basis. We will be tackling topics on a deeper level and establishing a mindfulness of our deen and role in this dunya. Some topics we intend on discussing include, “Manners Amongst Strangers”, “Virtues of Surah al-Fatiha”, “Importance of Water” and much more to come.

Real Talk with Sheikh Faiyaz and Imam Khalid
Friday 3 – 5 pm (biweekly)
Whether we have faltered in our prayers, lost touch with the desire to give back to our communities, or have given up on ourselves, much of what we feel comes from a loss of hope.
Join us this Friday with Imam Khalid Latif and Sheikh Faiyaz Jaffer as we break out into discussion groups to delve deeply into our hearts and minds to understand our current state of affairs and what we can do to rejuvenate within ourselves a sense of hope in Allah and His Plan for us all.
If Allah helps you, none can overcome you; and if He forsakes you, who is there after Him that can help you? And in Allah (Alone) let believers put their trust. [3:160]
