Assalam'alaykum - Greetings of Peace!
Welcome to Fall 2019! MLP is so excited to welcome you all back - students, staff, faculty and community members. Our motto this year is "less events, more programs." More weekly and monthly programs that bring everyone together around texts, discussions, retreats, spiritual practices, and socialization.
On Tuesdays (starting 9/17, 5 PM, Murray-Dodge 104), we invite you to join a weekly Qur'an Study Circle - an in depth year long study of Surah al-Baqara. We will seek to understand - historically, spiritually, ethically, and contemporarily - the passages that make up one of the most significant chapters of the Qur’an. The approcah will include a survey of Qur’anic commentary and group discussion.
Thursdays MLP intends to mix it up - bringing hearts and minds together in community:
- On the 1st and 4th of each month, the intellectually curious are invited to join a Reading Club where contemporary essays and books will be discussed - Sign-Up here.
- On the 2nd of each month, we continue our tradition of Dhikr and Potluck Dinner - Recite, chant and sing invocations on the path to God.
- On the 3rd of each month we will host a fun, relaxed dinner for Grad Students + Young Professionals to come together - RSVP here.
Parents, registration for the K-12 youth halaqa is now open - starting Sept. 22 - REGISTER NOW!
Princeton students, look out for a follow-up e-mail that will inform you of MLP programs designed just for you (and any other college students you would like to invite).
If you have any questions, please e-mail the MLP Assistant, Yusra Syed (firstname.lastname@example.org). Join our e-mail newsletter by subscribing above.
Prayers for a peaceful day,
