Weekend Halaqa Programs at the Masjid
What is the role of the masjid for Muslims?
To answer this vital question we should look back to the best generation, as defined by the Prophet Mohamad, SAW: the first generation of Muslims. A quick glance at this Golden-Age will demonstrate that our beloved Prophet Mohamed, SAW, used the masjid not only as a place to perform the five daily prayers, but also as an administrative and social hub to discuss and solve all matters concerning the Ummah. Naturally, the main target was to prepare his companions, R A, for the difficult mission of Dawah by educating them in every aspect of the deen. Thankfully, all we need to do to reap countless rewards for ourselves—as well as remove the obligation upon us–is to follow their example by learning about our religion! To create the opportunity to align ourselves with the Sunnah of the Messenger, SAW, our masjid currently offers weekly programs on different Islamic subjects. Each class, detailed below, is taught by our Sheikh, Imam Ahagie, and is completely free and open to all. We encourage you to attend!
