For converts only: Join Dr. Asad Tarsin, author of the acclaimed “Being Muslim: A Practical Guide,” for a half-day purification and prayer workshop.

This workshop can help you go from being unsure if you’re praying and making wudu/ghusl properly to being able to pray your five prayers with confidence. As Ramadan approaches quickly, this is a great time to prepare! This session is aimed towards new Muslims. As part of this workshop, we will also spend 1×1 time reviewing and practicing Surah Al-Fatihah.

Join us for this opportunity to solidify our knowledge of purification & prayer fundamentals and meet other new Muslims. Complimentary mid-workshop lunch in picnic area.

10 a.m. to 2 p.m. | Saturday, March 12* | Free; registration required | Conference Room | RSVP at https://mcceastbay.org/workshop
