The World just got a little bit more purple….

Välkommen & G’day.

New Seminar: Deception [A Study of Shaytaan]

In communities plagued by the increase of zina, murder and increase in drug use, we have opened ourselves to the traps of Shaytaan. Sh Saad Tasleem’s new single weekend seminar “Deception” is a thought provoking and more over a much needed seminar for all of us: an insight and study of Shaytaan. A profile into who he really is? what he promised to do? and how he affects us to this day and we don’t even realise it.

He made a promise to corrupt mankind till the Day of Judgement and it seems he is doing a pretty good job….now the time is to recognise, realise and protect ourselves from Shaytaan and his army. If you want to defeat the enemy – you have to know his strategy. Shaytaan has no loyalties….and our loyalty is to our Lord and Creator Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala.

“Then I will come at them, from in front of them and behind them, from their right and from their left.” [Surat'l-A'raf:17]

Check out the trailer from Sh Saad Tasleem below:

Check out www.almaghrib.org to see when Deception will be at your local Qabeelah!

Deception will be coming to New York, Atlanta and Houston within the next few months, insha’ Allah.

The Global Peace and Unity Conference in London on the weekend of 23rd/24th November is one of the largest Islamic conferences in Europe and attracts thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Scholars, leaders, thinkers, performers from across the globe are invited to take the stage in a packed schedule of back to back talks surrounding issues that concern us Muslims today living in the West and creates a platform for meaningful dialogue. It not only hosts the conference but also houses a vibrant and packed exhibition bazaar where independent retailers and businesses can showcase their products from across the UK. A truly family filled weekend with lots to do.
