    Faith & Reason

    In an age when faith in God and belief in revealed religion are challenged by scientism, skepticism, and atheism, the need for a firm understanding of the Muslim creed has perhaps never been more important. This weekend course will provide students with the essentials of Islamic doctrine and its epistemological foundations, based on a reading of the classical primer The Creed of Imam al-Sanusi. Course topics include the attributes of God, types of propositions, causality, predestination and free will, the problem of suffering, prophetology, and the Kalam cosmological argument.

    The $20 admission covers all three days of the course! Including dinner on Saturday Nov 23 at 5pm.  Since this is the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal we will be having special celebration for the Birth of "The Beloved Of Allah" on Saturday after the lession and before dinner, around 3:30pm

    FriendsGiving

    No Drinks, We will have TurkishCoffee and Iced Mo-Rock-In Tea! Friendsgiving is a blend of friend and Thanksgiving, and it refers to a large meal eaten with friends either on or near Thanksgiving. ... But when Friendsgiving first came into use, it was used to describe something much more informal than the traditional Thanksgiving meal.


    Post and others I spoke to for this story agree that Friendsgiving seems to have evolved in recent years from a sort of ad hoc Thanksgiving replacement (implemented when people found themselves far away from family on the holiday but near friends) to a common in-addition-to-Thanksgiving event, one that’s exclusively for friends. In other words, Friendsgiving has become a widely celebrated American holiday in its own right—and while it’s hard to know in real time what cultural shifts or forces have led to the rise of Friendsgiving, there are a few compelling theories as to why you may be seeing the term pop up again and again in trend list.

    How I wish to see you in peace For you to feel the tranquility of the motion as the water of the ocean hits your feet These tired eyes long to get a glimpse of you then quickly fall  asleep  And dream of you  in a better place a better you a better me Tired of the way things have to be Why now in this place why you and me We have a purpose we have a need How I wish to see you free O Jerusalem!  Free from the memories of previous years Where once light walked with us in peace  And gave us the duty to maintain the garden in peace with perfect harmony

    But the devil has fooled us What is the point of a sacrifice to God In the holy land if we act like able and Cain Killing your brother and killing one another Where's the peace and glory in that? Perhaps the troubles we see at your holy site Are the macro problems we see in the world in a small scale Give me something to eat when I hunger Quench my thirst in a parched land Give me justice, the lovely eyes of my family not in tears because of oppression and scent of my jasmine in my wife's body not her long labored sweat.

    It used to be we fasted from water and drink  Let's us now fast from injustice lies and deceit Oppression suppression and hate That is the dream I foresee.  One tribe one nation restoring the garden pulling out all the weeds plowing the land and seeing sunflowers bloom to match the sun and the high status we have taken our land. Turn these thick tears into cheers and let us feats again at the table to bring our hearts together. Amen
