Amplify your Reward in the Last 10 Days.
With the potential for having acts of worship land on Laylat al Qadr in the last 10 days of Ramadan please donate to this initiative and have your sadaqah worth as if you have donated every day for 1000 months, inshaAllah.
What’s it all for?
Our dream and intention is to access knowledgable thought leaders, inviting them to our city and help us develop opportunities for spiritual and religious growth for the sake of improving ourselves and establishing intentionally community.
To bring such people to Calgary there is always some cost involved, such as paying for flights and honorariums for the guests we invite.
In Autumn 2013, New Muslim Circle started as a small group of new Muslims reading the Martin Lings biography about Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), but grew to providing regular and relevant peer support to our newest community members. We are in our next chapter and looking to do more with ihsan (excellence).
In brining a guest speaker or two to Calgary, we want to partner up with local imams and youth leaders to further develop Calgary’s response to the needs of new Muslims and born-Muslims in there development of a healthy practice of Islam in a relevant cultural context.
We just completed a successful campaign in Ramadan 2017 to fund knowledge bags filled with books for new Muslims and knowledge seeker. But having the right teachers come give us a kickstart is another deeply needed ingredient we need your help with.
InshaAllah, we hope to have guest teachers and others in our midst as soon as scheduling allows. We will always keep donors updated of the progress and use of the funds.
Potential guests we are considering to invite as scheduling and funding permit. (this is working list and not finalized)
- Ustadh Usama Canon, Founding Director of Ta’leef Collective
- Dr. Ingrid Matson, eminent academic and teacher
- Dr. Sherman Jackson, eminent academic and teacher
- Dr. Umar Faruq Abd Allah, eminent academic and teacher
- Ustadh Ubaydallah Evans, a great youthful scholar from Chicago
Plus, we need some funds to pay for a year’s worth of web hosting ($129) and fee to establish our group as an official society in our province ($100).
