Community garden

Asalaamu alaikum sisters,

I wanted to share about a project Im suppose to coordinate this summer inshaAllah, it is a community garden out front of our Islamic center mashaAllah. I spoke with Remee (she is the program coordinator for the center) and it is not by any means off the ground and running yet, but we hope it will be soon, insha’Allah. Please make dua’a for all the efforts that will go into this project, as I am sure it will benefit many inshaAllah. Jazaisch Allah khair.

spoken word (poetry)

Asalaamu alaikum sisters,

I am thinking of volunteering and starting a class for boys and girls at the islamic center to teach Spoken Word. It is a type of dramatic poetry with comparitive phrases that really can get any point across. In the past Alhamdulilllah I have written and published poetry alhamdulillah and am a certified English teacher. Throughout the course we will put on small performances “coffee nights”. I think it will really bring them out of their shell and learn public speaking, it will be in arabic and english. Here is one example, a poet in the United States.
