1) Promo Event Dates commitment by AlMaghib HQ
After much contact with AlMaghrib HQ, and availability of the scholars, we have moved down our Promo Event dates to the Weekend of September 18-19th.  This time around, AlMaghrib HQ has committed to reserving the schedules upfront and we are now looking at bringing Sheikh Yaser Birjas and Abdulbary Yahya for the Promo Event!  Insha’Allah, this is a great way for us to utilize the month of Ramadan to further promote the AlMaghrib Twincities initiative, reach out to a larger audience, and make the necessary plans for this event.
2) Road Trip–Beatiful Patience at Qabeelat Wasat
We are so thrilled about the AlMaghrib Initiative that we’re planning a road trip to Qabeelat Wasat in Chicago to attend “Beautiful Patience: Tafsir Surah Yusuf.”  The is a one weekend seminar (July 30th-Aug 1st) offered by one of AlMaghrib Institute’s finest Sheikh Abdulbary Yahya.  This will give us a much anticipated Eman Rush before Ramadan and will give us a taste of what AlMaghrib Institute  has to offer.  If you are interested in attending please contact br Obaid at zafarobaid@gmail.com

3) Membership Update
We are proud to say that we’ve reached 800 members on our  mailing list, alhamdulillah! We’re taking advantage of various community events to present AlMaghrib to various locations. Within the next couple weeks, we’re shooting for 1000 members total. Help support this goal by spreading the word and directing people to this sign-up link: http://tinyurl.com/am-twincities-signup  
AlMaghrib-Twincities Booths and Presentations

4)  Booth @ Rochester Islamic Conference (July 2nd-4th)– Jazakum Allahu Khayr for all the volunteers who helped out at this event, specially the sisters from Rochester who helped organize and setup the booth on the first day. We had some additional volunteers who drive down from the TwinCities to help out as well, and alhamdulillah, we were able to get about 160+ new members signed up.

Booth @ Masjid Tawfiq Convention (July 9th-11th)–Jazakum Allahu Khayr for all the volunteers who helped out at this event, and again, a special call out to the sisters who kept this booth going through the weekend when most of us were tied up with the Sports Day in some capacity or other. We have about 120+ signups from this conference.

5) AlMaghrib-Twincities teams at Building Blocks Sports Day July 10th
