SoulSisters is a fun initiative for budding balighas that was introduced to the girls in our community by a group of young mothers. The goal is to instill the love of Islam and empower girls to become strong, modest females with confidence, faith, and belief in Islam. “We want to make our girls appreciate their Islamic identity.”

Session 1 – ‘Relationship with Allah’

Speakers: Sr. Sabireen Karim (Ages 8-9) and Sr. Najma Dhala-Datoo (Ages 10-11)

Thank you all for bringing your girls on Friday for our first SoulSisters session. Alhamdulillah the girls looked very happy and excited to be there and had a lot of fun contributing to the talks and decorating their journals.  These journals are meant for them to use at home as a way to continue talking to Allah SWT.

The girls also received a Duotang, a Baligha book and a “SoulSisters” band.  We kindly ask the girls to bring their Duotangs and wear their SoulSisters band to all future sessions.

Session 2 – ‘Self-Esteem’

Coming up on 23rd March, 2018

VR Karbala

VR Karbala – A Virtual Reality experience. When we heard of this amazing project and then had the opportunity to view the first scene that was released on the ‘Farewell of Hazrat Abbas (a)’, we felt we had to share it with the community at large. With the intention to share this with as many people as possible, we decided to set up ‘VR Karbala Stations’ over the course of the two months of Muharram and Safar, allowing individuals to sign up and attend allocated slots to view the Virtual Reality Experience. Alhamdulillah, we held 10 sessions and were able to share this experience with over 140 people. We would encourage everybody to check out www.vr-karbala.com and see what it’s all about!

Eid-e-Ghadir Treats!

On Eid-e-Ghadir, children between the ages of 7-14 were given mini Turbah pouches filled with sweet treats. They also had a crossword to do on the Event of Ghadir. These gestures of interacting with the young of our community left many with a smile!
The Jaffari Tabligh Board released this amazing initiative encouraging boys and girls between the ages of 4-14 to participate in doing good deeds over the month of Ramadhan 1438 (2017). When the participants complete doing a good deed, they go to their local ‘JTB Embassy’ and collect stickers. At the end, all participants were awarded for their great efforts and participation.
