AlMaghrib-TwinCities Booths a Success!
At the Building Blocks Zoo Day, we were able to get 30-40 people signed up and had some good conversations with some of the people who came to the AlMaghrib booth.

At Masjid Da’wah’s Youth Convention, we had about 130-140 people signed up, masha’allah! The brothers and sisters in these events worked really hard and gave countless hours of their time; Jazakum Allahu Khair for everyone who helped out!   For more info, as well as pictures, please visit the AlMaghrib-TwinCities blog at  https://almaghribtc.wordpress.com/2010/05/30/almaghrib-booth-success/

Membership Update
We are proud to say that we’ve reached 365 members on our  mailing list, alhamdulilla! We’re taking advantage of various community events to present AlMaghrib to various locations.

Promo Event Dates submitted to AlMaghib HQ
We have submitted the following candidate dates  for our first AlMaghrib promo event here in the TwinCities:

  • Weekend of July 31st and Aug 1st
  • Weekend of August 7th and 8th

We will wait to hear back from AlMaghrib HQ to see what they come back with in terms of speakers availability and schedule confirmation. We will keep everyone posted on anything we hear back, insha’allah.

Next Meeting – June 5th , 8 AM @ Masjid Al Huda
We will discuss progress of our outreach efforts, assign new tasks for up-coming events, and insha’Allah decide on details for our AlMaghrib Promotional Event.  This meeting is open to everyone; attending this meeting is a great way to learn more and get further involved in the AlMaghrib-TwinCities effort.
