       This event intents to make spirituality meaningful in our daily lives and during the session we cover the process of purification. Practical techniques and steps to the inculcate a deep sense of spirituality.  Borrowing from traditional text, we contextualize the methods used for moderns understands.  Helping re-engage our perspective and bringing mindfulness. 

     We will be covering what it mean to "Keep Vigil" in our daily life and perspective.  What is mean t o be a believer in a age where faith it self is being questioned.  Describes the symptoms of having a forgetful mind.  The heart is an organ designed to be in a state of remembrance of GOD.  It yearns always to remember GOD and when GOD is not remembered, the human hearts falls into a state of agitation and turmoil.   The discussion is facilitated by Abdullah Haroon
