What can the Mosque do for me?
It seems the mosque only plays a role for children learning the basics of the Faith, or our elders who seek that spiritual connection and closeness to the divine, since they have the time. However, what role can the mosque play in the life of a College Student? A Young Adult? A newly married couple? Come and find out. Share your thoughts and concerns. If you are a regular mosque goer, someone who has stopped attending, or never even stepped in, you're still welcome to come, talk, reflect, share, learn and grow with us. Come make new friends, share personal stories and experiences, and have some fun in a safe space. Food, friends, coffee, games and prayer. What better way to spend the night? Event Info: Place: Elzahra Islamic Center Address: 218 Irving Street, Midland Park, NJ Time: 7pm - 11:30 pm Program: Isha Prayer Lecture/Discussion Food & Coffee Free Time/Activities Night Prayer (Qiyam) (Ages 16-30, Brothers and Sisters, Open Invite) Doesn't matter if you're Desi, Arab or something else. Nor if you're born Muslim or a convert. Even if it's your first time to the mosque or if it has been a while since you last came. Break past the discomfort, purify your intention and just show up with the hope of reconnecting in some way with your Creator and the community. Hopefully we will all grow and benefit from one another.
