Join us in a judgment free zone to help us all thrive this Ramadan no matter where we are at on our spiritual journey. This pre-Ramadan session is geared towards teens and young professionals.

Let’s face it: Ramadan can be tough. Many times it is hard to go from our regular lives full of school and work to days full of fasting and worship.

Whether it’s figuring out how to navigate long hours of studying or work, or how to resist gossiping with your friends at school, join Sidi Shahryar as we discuss practical ways to not just survive this Ramadan but to truly spiritually thrive. There will be time for Q&A inshAllah as well.

6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  | Sunday, April 11 | Watch at https://mcceastbay.org/live

Join Sidi Shahryar Abbasi for an open conversation to help us navigate any challenge we are facing – whether we are struggling with smoking and drinking or with praying and reading the Qur’an. We will cover:

  • Having the right mindset: How we can get the most out of this Ramadan given the circumstances 
  • Light fiqh review: How to ensure we are fasting in a way that’s pleasing to Allah
  • Getting on the path to repentance and change: Practical steps we can take to seek Allah’s forgiveness for our actions
  • Spiritually cleansing our hearts: How to cleanse our hearts from bad traits, and our mind from bad images and lustful desires
  • Getting rid of bad habits: How to wean ourselves from excessive use of NetFlix, Hulu, Tiktok. Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and Whats App
  • Managing our time: How to have a good schedule while at home and juggling lots of responsibilities

This is a judgement free zone! Please join this virtual chat regardless of where you at on your spiritual journey, learn spiritual insights to overcome your challenges, and learn ways to have a great holy month.
