Why Attend this ISLAMinar?

Syria, Burma, Bangladesh... As we witness an extreme intensity of violence and  suffering in many Muslim countries, some of us have become complacent or helpless, while others don't know how to react to injustice in a civil manner.

Our beloved Prophet, peace and blessings upon him, described the believers as one body: When one limb suffers, the entire body responds to its pain.

As we are bombarded with images of the helplessness of our brothers and sisters worldwide, we too feel helpless. We wish we could be the cure to this sickness, so what can we do for them?

Join Imam Khalid Griggs (from North Carolina) in a FREE webinar on Sunday, April 14, 2013, from 12:00 pm-1:30 pm EST for a heart treatment session and a lesson about how we can respond to the distress calls from our Ummah.
