ISNA Evening, Friday Aug 30th, 2013


As salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu dear parents,

We have a great evening planned for your children. This weekend the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is in town in the form of a national conference and we feel it would be great to allow our kids to indulge in the atmosphere of such a beautiful event which brings together Muslims from all over the world in the hope of enriching them and bringing them closer to their Deen. Therefore we have planned an evening that includes having dinner together, shopping/browsing through an epic Muslim bazaar, and meeting and interacting w/ shuyookh from across the country. All we need from you is your permission cooperation in the form of transporting your child to and from Dar-us-Salaam in College Park, MD. We would need for you to drop your children off no later than 6:00 P.M. and to pick them up no later than 11:30 P.M. at Dar-us-Salaam. We will do our best to ensure that your children have a wholesome experience in shaa Allah, we just hope you will aide us in providing the opportunity to do so. Barak Allahu feekum was salaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.”


ISNA Program | Night of Friday August 30, 2012

6:15 – 7:30 PM SESSION 3A 146ABC

We Have a Dream
In his farewell sermon, the Prophet (s) called on us to abandon racial prejudice and gender inequity,
reflecting the Qur’anic message of diversity and oneness. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made
a similar appeal 50 years ago at the height of the civil rights movement. Today, we as a community
and society continue to struggle with these divides. How far have we come and how far do we have
to travel in realizing the Prophetic vision for a more perfect unity?

Speakers: Zaid Shakir, Azizah Al-Hibri
Moderator: Patricia Anton

7:45 PM Maghrib Prayer Hall C

A Purpose-Driven Life in a Wild, Wild World
In modern life, we are confronted with so many perplexing choices that it often leads to feelings of
internal chaos and confusion. Living a God-centric life with good intentions can take us from merely
surviving to actually thriving. Join us as we explore what it means to live with purpose and how to
confront modern challenges in living a spiritual life.

Speakers: Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Ingrid Mattson
