General Talks

Shaykh Husain holds a weekly gathering at the Islamic Center of Chicago (ICC), focusing on remembering Allah (swt) through silent, individual dhikr. The session begins with a short talk (10-15 minutes) related to increasing our connection with Allah (swt), and furthering our spiritual development. Afterwards a silent dhikr of selected adhkār is held, followed by a few minutes of muraqabah (self-reflection). All are welcome to attend.

This page is currently under construction. As a result, many talks are unavailable. We hope to return these talks to the site in the near future.
