WEEKLY GATHERING TALKS

Shaykh Husain holds a weekly gathering that focuses on remembering Allah (the Exalted) through silent, individual dhikr (remembrance). The session begins with a short talk related to increasing our connection with Allah (the Exalted) and furthering our spiritual development. Afterwards, a silent dhikr of select litanies is held, followed by a few minutes of muraqabah (self-reflection).

This session is held weekly on Fridays after Isha at the Sacred Learning Center. Childcare for children ages 5-11 is available during the program, and the Center has dedicated areas for brothers and sisters with younger children, allowing parents with children to participate in the gathering. Additionally, the program is broadcast via livestream allowing individuals to participate online.
