Are We Asking the Right Question(s)?

We as Muslims Alhamdulillah try to practice Islam the best possible way as we know how. There are quite a few areas on which we would like to know more by asking different questions. In order for us to ask the right question, we need to be armed with right education/guidance from our Scholars with the teachings of the Holy Quran and Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

As Ramadan is approaching very quickly, we as a community (Regular attendees of Monday night lectures, presented by Dr. Main) decided to focus on topics which touch us almost daily and we should do our part to have, prepare, and get ready for such type of situations.

To address to most common things we need to know while living here in the United States, below is a brief list which will be discussed by Dr. Main starting this Monday (March 5th, 2018) night after Isha prayers (Isha prayer time is 8 pm). These topics may be covered in 3 – 4 lectures/presentations. We encourage the whole community to pls. come and join us in these short lectures/presentations to gain or renew your knowledge and ask the right question as we get reminded and educated on the topics.
