The way I see it, we all have a small part to play in this lonely ol’ world, not all of us can be doctors, lawyers or accountants! All of us have a small price to pay giving back to the ummah… one step at a time.

We can start by doing some voluntary work within the community. There is a host of opportunities out there, we just need to find the one we will be the most effective positive difference. 

 Heres some of them…

I’ve said it once, but I’ll say it again,

If you havent been to an Al Kauthar course, you have no idea what you are missing!

Recently Al Kauthar held the “World of the Unseen – Belief in the Last Day” by the amazing Sheikh Waleed Basyouni.

We went through many aspects from the grave to seeing Allah. Inshallah will put some of it up.

In the mean time why not cheak Al Kauthar out, you may be suprise at what lies in store!
