Enjoys Another Rewarding Outing!
"Every time we go out, we enjoy positive reactions from people in the neighborhoods," says Mubaashir Uqdah, current team coordinator. "I find it significant seeing people waving and smiling at Muslims who are walking through their neighborhoods distributing literature. I find it significant to hear people thank us and actually stop their cars to ask for our brochure," Uqdah said.
"Some customers saw us give a brochure to a store owner and as we were making our way down the street, they pulled over in their car and asked could they have a couple brochures."
"We stopped by a barbershop and gave out some brochures. A barber and a customer engaged us in conversation. We were there for about 20 minutes in dialog. Our brochure title was Al-Islam vs. Radical Islam: Are There Two Islamic Religions? The customer wanted to know what we meant by "Radical." This led to a mutually satisfying dialog.
Saturday was a beautiful day, with beautiful weather and the bond between the brothers has grown stronger with each outing. Not to mention the health benefits from the exercise.

What's so unique about this course?
Watch this video to find out!
Interestingly, the course is taught in Arabic only, where instructor doesn't use english or any other language to explain the concept. This methodology employs NLP techniques where concepts are taught through body language, drawings, without resorting to translation. This generates amazing results, as this is the same methodology used at Islamic university of Madinah where in each class there are students from 30 different language backgrounds, and teacher has no choice but to explain the concepts in Arabic only. The session in this video is 5th session of Arabic course. By this session students start responding in Arabic language and comprehending it. This course is for pure beginners having no background at all.
As taught at Islamic university of Madinah along with Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques.
Ten online sessions

"BUILDING FUND" DRIVE
Community development demands that citizens initiate and control activities to positively influence conditions affecting their lives. It calls for citizen participation, cooperation, and collaboration.
Sisters in Islam would like to develop SISTERS IN ISLAM CULTURAL COMMUNITY CENTER, insha Allah.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity: any good deed done from which people continue to benefit despite the demise of the person who originated it.); knowledge which is beneficial; or a virtuous descendant who prays for him (the deceased)." [Sahih Muslim]
At this time, we are asking for assistance to help make this vision a reality, insha Allah. The Journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. WILL YOU BE A PART OF THIS COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROJECT? Please support SII with a donation today. No donation is too small.
All donations are tax-deductible.
Make check/money order payable to Sisters in Islam. Please write"BUILDING FUND" on your check or money order. Send to Sisters in Islam, P.O. Box 360357, Brooklyn, NY 11236 or donate
Thank you in advance for your support. May Allah (swt) reward you, Ameen.
