Whether you took your Shahadah (Declaration of Faith) two days ago or two decades ago, join our New Muslims monthly book-club gathering to build community and support with others new to the faith.
 
At each meeting, we discuss a Chapter from Dr. Asad Tarsin’s book “Being Muslim: A Practical Guide.” Please read the chapter before the book club meeting. At this third monthly meeting, we will discuss Chapter 5 about spirituality with Ustadha Hosai Mojaddidi.
 
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion, inshaAllah!
