THIS WEEKEND: Friday Oct. 6 - Sunday, Oct. 8
Did you ever attend a program or read a book on personal development and wished that such a program existed based on the Qur'an and Sunnah? A program that could help eliminate the dichotomy between your personal life and deen, your relationship with Allah and your family, your fear of people and of Allah.
If you've wrestled with these type of thoughts, please attend the Discover Yourself Workshop by Sadatullah Khan this weekend, October 6-8.
Come and learn how to be a better communicator, let go of the past, stop playing the blame game, understand the power of choice, and the power of intention.
The Workshop is sponsored by ICCM, Women's Committee and MSO and is FREE to attend. Food and refreshments will be provided insha Allah. Please fill out the registration form for the workshop here:
The flyer for the workshop is attached.

The first ten days of the lunar month of Dul Hijjah are very important in the lives of Muslims. They are considered to be the best ten days of the year. Muslims try their best to maximize their reward from Allah.
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) taught us that the righteous deeds during these ten days are rewarded more than the deeds done during any other day of the year. Muslims are encouraged to fast these days, give charity, refrain from unlawful talks and deeds, spend more time with the Book of Allah, extend a hand of mercy toward relatives, do more prayers, glorify and remember Allah more.
Sacrificing an Udheia is highly recommended. If you intend to do one on behalf of yourself and your family, then you (the person doing the Udheia), should not trim your hair or cut your nails from the first day (which begins tonight at Maghreb) until you slaughter your Udheia on the day of Eid.
If you think of Any other deed that may help you be closer to Jannah, then do not miss this window that Allah swt has opened for you.
May Allah protect our community and accept us all among His righteous servants. Ameen.
