EVENING OF REMEMBRANCE:
A GATHERING OF PRAISE FOR ALLAH & HIS MESSENGER PBUH
WITH SHAYKH FARAZ RABBANI
FRIDAYS AT 7:30 PM
It is a highly recommended practice of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and his Companions–a practice upheld by Muslim scholars and communities throughout history–to gather to remember and celebrate Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him).
The Prophet himself had designated poets who sang songs in praise of Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) in the Prophet’s Mosque. We gather, as individuals and families, to uphold this beautiful–and often sadly neglected sunna–every Friday night.
We recite from Habib Umar bin Hafidh’s great poetic summary of the life and character of our Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), The Shimmering Light (al-Diya’ al-Lami`), as well as participating in sunna acts of remembrance and praise.
Each gathering includes inspiring, brief reminders on how to increase in love and connection with Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him).
This weekly gathering is ideal–for individuals and families–for both spiritual upliftment and for gathering with other believers who love Allah and His Beloved Messenger (peace be upon him).
