Did I mention there might be halal walking tacos... ;) Please SPREAD THE WORD and see you there insha'Allah (God Willing). The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) has said: “Whosoever of you sees an evil, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then [let him change it] with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart — and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]
