Masha’ Allah, as many of you know, the Islamic Family and Social Services Association (IFSSA) has some very interesting events planned out, not least of which was the highly successful event, The Mosquers.

Another event, scheduled for October 2008, is Beyond Borders, an event “showcasing the creative talent of Muslims in Edmonton.” Submissions may include photography, artwork, poetry, and live performance. Given that Old Scona people tend to be geeky, this opportunity is perfect to flaunt those talents!
