A case for true justice, putting Shari’ah law on the docket. Exploring the validity of the western standoff with Shari’ah, and how the societal reforms and principles of social justice taught by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) revolutionized the vast Muslim world 1400 years before similar ideas were attempted in the West.

“‘Family Matters’ (Musleh Khan)” Take a journey through the personal life of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), as a parent, a spouse, and a friend. Walk away with inspiring and practical lessons of how to get closer to the ones you love.

“‘Art of Worship’ (Boonaa Mohamed)” A night dedicated to exploring the influence of Islam on the arts. A showcase of poetry and creativity..inspired by the powerful message of Muhammad (pbuh) and brought to you by local talent!
