Today we are making our way to Columbia, South Carolina for a two-day retreat of an in-depth study of Nawawi’s 40 Hadith compilation, or al Arba’een. Led primarily by Shaykh Manzar-ul-Islam Azhari and Shaykh Muhammad Mendes, and sponsored by ISRA International, this is the 8th annual winter retreat of its kind. Called Jewels of Mercy, it is my hope that the Arbaeen become ingrained in the memory of my heart and soul from this retreat. See you on the other side at Masjid Noor-al-Huda!
Meanwhile, here’s some pictures we captured from along the way…a beautifully developed masjid in Raleigh, North Carolina..
