Journey of the Soul

On September 28th, 2019, the IISC hosted a woman's only workshop entitled: "Journey of the Soul". This workshop was conducted by Sh. Navaid Aziz and covered the following topics:

- The significance of remembering death in Islam

- Signs of a good and bad ending to one's life

- The fiqh of washing the deceased, praying the janazah, and writing the will.

- What deeds benefit the deceased

- How to give condolences

- What is the actual journey of the soul

The turn out was phenomenal with over 60 women showing up, and many still on the waiting list. This was a great opportunity to learn, discuss, and socialize. The food was sponsored by Sr. Ayshe Borhot , jazaaha Allahu khairan.
