THIS PAST WEEK

 

Alhumudullillah, we had a very successful Singles Spring Fest. A record number of participants signed up for this event and had to close the registration early. To quote Imam Joban, the event was “well organized, fun, knowledgeable, interactive, interesting, humorous”. We plan additional such events and follow-ups in the coming month.

Last Friday, Sheikh Yahya Rhodus, instructor at Zaytuna College and student of Sheikh Hamza Yusuf delivered the Friday Khutbah. He spoke on the importance of etiquettes in Islam.

On Friday evening, Sheikh Yasir Qadhi hosted the first session of the Al-Maghrib class on Denial at MAPS. 800 people packed the Main Hall to hear Sheikh Yasir introduce Surah Yasin.

In addition, Br. Maqsood Ahmed who leads ICNA Relief USA discussed the organization’s relief effort on Sunday.
