“Muslim Latino Halaka With Amana”

Asalaam Alaikum Wa Rhamatullah Wa Barakatu! I am writing to you today to inform all of you that we had our first Latino Muslim Halaka this past Monday at the offices of AMANA in North Miami hosted by Br. Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout (Amana Director), Br. Amr Rivera (Amana Director of the Puerto Rico Office), Yusuf Ibn Malik, and myself Yusuf Ibn Al-Maarij.

Alhamdulillah, it went very well! I hope that Inshallah you will all be able to make it to next Monday’s Halaka at 6PM sharp and every Monday thereafter Insha Allah! This will be an opportunity to build in brotherhood. This will be the platform from where we will be able to help other Latinos and Muslims in general in our community for the sake of ALLAH Subhanna Wata Ala. Inshallah! I hope to see you all there and if you have any questions, please let me know.

The Halaka will be held at:
183 NE 166 Street
North Miami Beach, FL 33162 USA
Direct: 305-898-9314, Fax. 305-647-6470
