New Medinah Retreat & Business Fundraiser
UNITED HEARTS, MINDS AND SPIRITS BUILD STRONG COMMUNITIES
By Sister Khalilah Hasan, SisterLinc Inc.
Were you there? Did you miss the 29th New Medinah Retreat and the great sharing of the messages from Dr. Rashad Ali, Sister Ayesha Mustafaa, Imam Qasim Ahmed, or Imam FurQan Muhammad? Did you experience the camaraderie among the Muslims as we breathe in the fresh air, the peace and quietness of the land? Did you view Allah’s heavenly sphere of the moon and the beauty of his stars that were too numerous to count, as the sunset and the night began?
THEN YOU MISSED IT!
Well, Insha’Allah, life is giving you another opportunity to share in all of this and more as we are already in the planning stages of The 30th Anniversary of the Annual New Medinah Islamic Retreat. The best is yet to come!
Now, here’s your opportunity to plan to be present “In An Environment That Makes it Easy to Remember Allah.” New Medinah!
Save the date,. If you were blessed to be present at our very 1st New Medinah Retreat, in August 1987, then you want to create some new memories in 2016 with your family and friends.
I was there this year, along with some of my sisters in SisterLinc, Inc. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we are making our commitment now to help with next year’s Retreat. SisterLinc is an organization formed to address the financial and social issues primarily of women and children, empowering them through the establishment of a credit union, safe havens, assisted living facilities, etc. We also actively support Islamic Schools and all institutions established under the leadership of Imam W. Deen Mohammed, such as New Medinah.
Please make your plans to attend The New Medinah Retreat 2016 NOW! It is understood that when we fail to plan, we plan to fail. Imam FurQan Muhammad of Atlanta once told me that he attended the first Ramadan Session of Imam W. D. Mohammed and every time when leaving, he would make his intentions to return to the next session and Allah has always blessed him to do so.
SisterLinc humbly requests that all Masjids and Centers in the South, to please arrange your schedules so that you may assist New Medinah during the Memorial Day weekend -- May 27-29, 2016 -- to extend the best hospitality that we southerners know how to give.
Please join in with us, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Florida, and Kentucky. The rest of the United States will be our invited guests!
We are stepping into the space of DOING FOR SELF right now and overcoming today! We the people, in order to form a more perfect union, are pooling our resources to secure the blessings of freeing our minds and spirits and will soon enjoy our self-made prosperity in this generation and for generations to come.
Join us! Make your intentions early and let it be known so that we may make the best plans for you and your family. Add to your budget $5 a month in order that we, as a collective body, can and will continue this mission in honest truth to do for self.
NOW, THERE IS NO BETTER TIME THAN NOW!!
