To manifest our theme of Stewardship this Ramadan, Wasat will take concrete steps to reduce waste at our iftars (fast-breaking meals).
You can join this effort by bringing your own re-useable dish, utensils, and water bottle to iftar - and a re-useable container if you want to take home leftovers - another way we can reduce waste.
Show that you’re taking part in #WasteNotRamadan with a Wasat logo cotton tote for your dishes and a Wasat logo stainless water bottle. Supplies are limited, pre-order yours at the special pre-Ramadan price now! (through the ‘donate’ button below)
BEING MUSLIM CLASSES
The Being Muslim class is designed to deepen our understanding of Islam together.
Beginning in May, we’re studying “Knowledge of Self: The Servant and the Steward” on Wednesdays at 7pm at the Hillman City Collaboratory, with Baraka Blue as our teacher. During Ramadan only, we’ll also study The Spiritual Journey of Malcolm X with Ustadh (“teacher”) Abdul Latif Al-Amin at the LEMS Bookstore. Both classes are free and open to all, but donations are appreciated.
Laughing All the Way to the Mosque with Zarqa Nawaz
Join Zarqa Nawaz, creator of the hit Canadian sitcom, Little Mosque on the Prairie, for a public talk based on her book, Laughing All the Way to the Mosque: The Misadventures of a Muslim Woman (Virago UK). She writes about her life as a Canadian Muslim woman of Pakistani origin and addresses serious social issues such as suspicion of Muslims after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, gender relations in Islam, the struggle to fit in as an immigrant child-- but always with a humorous and light touch, deftly balancing obvious commitments to her religion, her country, and her family with an irreverent approach to the status quo.
