In the name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
We thank Allah, The Most High, for allowing us to have had back to back successful learning endeavors: “The Janaazah Workshop” and “The Benefit and Brunch.” May Allah bless and reward everyone involved! Aameen.
We want to mention an important note: As emphasized before, the purpose of these gatherings was, and is, to increase in knowledge. We want the atmosphere of our community to be one of knowledge and diligent study, for both the men and women. This our goal.
We hope that the delicious food that was prepared was a cause for an increase in sisterhood, but again, eating and socializing is not the primary goal of these gatherings.
With that being said, we have decided to make the “Benefit and Brunch” occasional instead of monthly. This decision was made to try to ensure an environment of learning, not one of just socialization. As we know that our sisters would like to follow in the footsteps of our mother Aa’ishah who was a great scholar and teacher.
Allah willing, Class from the Book “A Piece of Advice and Admonition for the Women” will still be held on the first Sunday of every month; however, brunch will not. We encourage our sisters to make the attendance for class similar to that of events.
The next sisters’ class will be Sunday, March 6th, 2016 – Allah willing. Review your notes, and come to class prepared.
As it relates to our next brunch, then we will suffice with the luncheon by our brothers, Masjid Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdul-Wahhaab in Camden, NJ. Allah willing, it will be held on April 10, 2016. See this link for details:
And again, we thank everyone who has aided our efforts and shown support. We ask Allah to reward them abundantly!
May Allah increase us in knowledge and righteous actions, and may He pardon our short comings.
