(ahem… pardon the three month lapse in updates)

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!

The Prophet salawat.gif warned, “Not one of you believes until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself.”

At school, Sundeep Randhawa is trying to raise money for victims of the Darfur gencide. The project is large and insha’ Allah his goal is to raise $1 000 000. I joined his group, promising the Muslim community would donate at least $1 000.

So I’m asking all of you to contribute whatever amount that you can. Everything counts – Sundeep told me that $5 will purchase enough rice to last a village of about 100 people for a week. Whatever you can give will insha’ Allah be accepted as a ṣadaqa (charity) and go far towards alleviating the suffering of those who find no respite.

The 5th Annual Reviving the Islamic Spirit Convention will be taking place in Toronto from December 22nd to 24th, 2006. Some of the greatest scholars and high-profile speakers on the planet will be coming from around the world to discuss The Neglected Sunnah. The convention is an attempt by the youth to help overcome new challenges of communication and integration. The convention aims to promote stronger ties within the North American Society through reviving the Islamic tradition of education, tolerance and introspection, and across cultural lines through points of commonality and respect.
