For the Greater Good

Acts of selflessness can shatter stereotypes and break down barriers, building bonds of trust and friendship. Conveying the humanity in all of us overwhelms human emotion such that nothing but love and appreciation dictates our interactions. Charity, even the seemingly smallest of actions, can bring change we never thought possible,

Rise Up as One

« And hold fast to the rope of Allah all together and do not be divided and remember Allah’s bounty upon you when you were divided and He made you brothers and sisters out of His blessing to you (3:103). »

Often we are scared by the state of our world, unsure of our place in it, and overwhelmed by the task of doing something about it. However, we must remember that God puts us in positions of difficulty so that we can get closer to Him. We have spent years learning, practicing, and perfecting our training so that we could be well equipped for this exact moment. Now it is our turn to rise to the occasion and take our communities to new heights!

Speakers: Suhaib Webb, Siraj Wahhaj, Altaf Husain, Sherman Jackson, Tariq Ramadan, and Hamza Yusuf
