Alhamdulilaah its all paying off and this is the first of the many other exciting events coming our way inshalaah. Inshalaah after this promo event Almaghrib will make its place in everyones heart and will have ppl inshalaah wanting to take these classes and gain knowledge that Allah SWT has made so convienent for us in todays world, Subhalaah we have today all sorts of gadgets to benefit from and Almaghrib is an institute with tools that can help us and inshalaah others in our community learn different aspects of Islam from respected Sheikhs. So inshalaah cant wait to feed my soul and get a bit more..... a lot more close to my religion inshalaah, and hope inshalaah we all can put an extra effort towards putting something away for our Akhira.... Ameen

Alhamdolilah, it is great to know about the promo. I really like the suggestions. Suggestion from me: Can we find a biz/etc. or do a lottery if people sign up for the 1st course? This would be especially good for the young/youth. Do a lottery and give out some prizes - Islamic books, reduced cost of registration, family discount, free baby-sitting (great idea!), during baby-sitting show Isalmic videos to the kids. We need to build the momentum and insha Allah Allah (SWT) will bless us with success, ameen.

Jazak Allah

I'm So happy to hear that we are having our promo :). InshAllah it is successful and we get a regular set of sessions to gain further knowledge towards our deen. Love everything you said Samiya!!

I think advertising is definetely going to be a big part of the tasks...
-do we have a poster that we can start handing out to local businesses and post up on Campuses?

Some other things we should make sure we have in tact are:
-firstly getting a location booked and making sure we check the available capacity we are able to hold
-we should get posters up at as many places as possible and have leaf-lets with quick blurbs about any important information (we should probably take care of this asap)
-confirm and possibly book any multimedia requirements..?
-decorate the location (lol i don't know if we really need to do this..)
-and yes babysitting is a very important component.. we should make sure there is a structure of activities set up for the kids so they aren't bored and running around being disruptive
-i think we should start breaking into groups: eg. a few people from the team to be responsible for the babysitting and then gathering up their volunteers and taking up that project and cover the major points needed to fulfil that area
-i think breaking down into groups will allow for less burden, stress and give us more organization and flow inshAllah
-possible refreshments?
-MORE ADVERTISING (i clearly feel thats a huge thing haha. inshAllah we can get lots of people to come out for this and we are all able to learn more.

i may have written a bit too much but i guess all the excitement has gotten to me :). these are mearly just suggestions that i can think of but we do have lots of work to do as its approaching so quickly (alhumdulilah for reading week)

MashaAllah, its good to see the whole team is being all prepped and excited for AM. I really like some of the ideas br. Pervaiz has brought to the table.

But, one important thing though. Would we have Q&A session after the promo seminar? Cos I'm sure a lot of people would wanna ask questions (which again shows they are interested). So, we might need to prepare for that as well inshaAllah..

01-19-2010, 07:28 PM

Alhamdolilah, lots of great ideas and momentum! I really like the Q&A idea from Br. Khalid! Perhaps, we could also make Q&A anonymous bcz some people might not wanr to ask in public. . . maybe. When is the mext meeting - please let me know. Please forgive me if I sound/appear impatient and anxious.

Wa Salam

Assalaamu alaikum,

Alhamdulillah we were able to draw ten times more than the usual crowds we see at events. Sheikh Riad gave a riveting speech. Very inspiring Alhamdulillah

Anyone has pictures that can be uploaded?

During the promp Sh Muhammad talked about concept of beauty in islam. Does anyone remember the concept of escalation? And did he say he got it from the book freakonomics? Very interesting way of analyzing why certain people do certain things.

Sh Muhammad and Sh Riad rocked the event mashaAllah .. so much energy and mashaAllah such beautiful topics ..
