"Me, My deeds, And I" with Sh. Omar Suleiman
When: Friday, April 29th 2011 at 7.45 PM
Where: Masjid Al-Tawheed, 984 West Side Avenue, Jersey City, NJ
* Brothers & Sisters both welcome!
Do you feel ready to meet Allah (swt)? Which hand will you receive your book of deeds - the right or the left? If you were to meet Him tomorrow, would you feel adequate in presenting your deeds? Or will you be amongst those filled with regret, wishing you could come back to this life, and engage in good deeds for your akhirah?
Allah (swt) says in the Quran:
Or [lest] it say when it sees the punishment, "If only I had another turn so I could be among the doers of good." (39:58)
Come join us for a night of introspection, thought, and reflection with special guest Sh. Omar Suleiman, visiting from New Orleans, LA.
