Assalam alaikum,
With 300,000+ Muslims, I was wondering if AlMaghrib was thinking about expanding to Chicago and offering courses there.

In order for that to take place, a group of Chicagoans would need to get together and bid to bring AlMaghrib to Chicago for either 2006 or 2007.

There is one sister who contacted AlMaghrib previously, but I do not know what happened thereafter.

Are you interested in starting or joining local efforts to bring it to Chicago?

Why don't you come join us in Memphis this weeknd for the AlMaghrib promotional conference bring everyone you think might be interested in bringing AlMaghrib to Chi-town with you. Then you go back to the windy city on an total EmanRush! A lot of hard work and three months later, you have AlMaghrib in Chicago. How about Banu Reeh? I like that....

just a question for br. siraaj, i was wondering what efforts have been undertaken to get al-maghrib to chicago, a lot of people i know have never even heard of al-maghrib. inshallah we should try nd get al-maghrib to chicago in 2006 INSHALLAH, but we need to do some mass publicity before then. maybe we should have a meeting for everyone who wants to bring al-maghrib to chicago and start some coordinated efforts in doing so. Just a suggestion.

There will be a gathering at my home this Sunday insha'Allah dealing with just that, what has been done, our status with al Maghrib in our bid, and where we're going from there on out.

If you'd like to attend the gathering, then please e-mail my wife at: liv_noor at hotmail dot com.

Akhi, jazakallah khayr for the invitation. I'm actually from the Qabeelat that was established in West Lafayette, IN and have learned a lot about the process :D

However, we would be greatly indebted to you if you would share your insights with us after your promo is completed, and we hope many Chicagoans who have the ability will insha'Allah attend your promo.

May Allah (SWT) make your Qabeelat successful and reward all of your for your hard work and effort :D

Ok, I just spoke to the proper channels now. And, you guys have to go through the "actual" proper channel. Please do a search on how to go about doing that.

Nothing is finalized until everything is documented. That's policy for all the locations trying for 2006. There are no detours. Like, knowing someone on the inside doesn't necessitate a guarantee because AlMaghrib poses itself as Fair in its processes.

JazakAllah khair.

And yes, we're still working on it. To date, the following has occurred:

1. An Ameer and Ameerah have been chosen, as well as the appointment of a brothers and sisters shura.

2. Critical tasks have been outlined and positions for each assignment has been filled (except for web developer, if anybody knows a good web developer in Chicago, that would be highly appreciated).

3. The shura plans on meeting in the next two weeks to hammer out the vision of Al Maghrib: Chicago that will set the tone for what goes into our work (websites, newsletters, etc), as well as our marketing plans.

Of course, there has already been work done in the past, and work to be done that has not been mentioned, but what is relevant has been posted here.

Assalamoalaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu,

Due to lack of time, I am not reading the four previous pages, but I guess many people urge almaghrib to come to chicago. There are families here in which only selected people are upon the Quran and Sunnah and guess what, there duty is to start dawah from home right? Some people suggested that we should have our parents get in touch with Imam of local masjid or this organization or that organization,,,, but even those (specially from Indian subcontinent, including pak) majority has issues....
I sooooooooo want Almaghrib to come here inshaALLAH so I can without any doubts or worries bring my elderly and brother to almaghrib and have them get in touch with the ahlus sunnah wal jamah.
I really want almaghrib be started in chicago please please....so many people here need 'serious' reminders.

Depending on where you live you can spread the word our strategy right now is to work with all the MSA's ...I'm sure your familiar with the madrassah in elgin? inshallah i'm working to tell them about maghrib..also maulana abdul saleem has a sister's section where they are becoming alimas perhaps you or some sisters can pay a visit and tell them about it.


email me i'll connect with you brother siraj who can then connect you with his wife..

your right there is quantity but very poor quality..the dawah of foolishness is rampant and the interfaith movement is very strong..they are fooling the youth by saying that it is for dawah purposes..but they dont' know what's behind it


To target the older people is dumb..this is my opinion becasue people that are old dont' listen...no matter what i'm pretty sure u know what i'm talking about..so all us young people inshallah can gather..I've done this in my own inner family we're beating the old in unity and hikmah..so inshalalh we can spill this over in the Chicago community

although there is some bad there is some good also...the msas do have good people I'm done with my b.s. degree so i havent' been around to check the scene

I think all we need IN CHi town is the spark...we light the spark and then the dominoes will fall...and then when we become solid in Chitown..we can extend our hands to Milwaukee and Madison there are muslim communities there..

alright sister later on email brother siraj so you can coordinate with his wife I'm sure there are other sisters...So you guys are the best people to go to Maulana abdul Saleem's madrassah and do ur thing

10-24-2005, 02:58 PM
oh yeah another thing to add by no way am I saying forget about the old they dont need dawah..just based on my experience..and then my uncle who is an islamic scholar alhumdulliah and is on ahlus sunnah wal jammah said that they are like the clay pots after they are hardened they cant change..whereas where the soft clay which can be molded into something strong..

SO i'm not saying screw the old and in with the new age..no....let's do both..if u can target your family etc..than do it. If u need help on urdu lectures I can get u some

Alhumdulillah, Brother I can't believe subhanALLAH. When I was given the advice somewhere for Eman rush audio, I thought, hm...ok, its good for me but what about my parents who don't even understand english. It would be just awesome so my answer to the underlined part is yes yes. May ALLAH Subhana Wata'ala grant you the ajar of this and give you the best of this duniyah and the akhira. amin thuma amin.

Plus, its not that the old people can't change, but it requires a greatttttttttt deal of patience, I tell you I fail when it comes to patience with them. I fail badly, I hate myself when that happens, I hate compromising on deen but yet I do it. It is just that 'ALLAH guides whomever HE wishes' may it be old or young, what do you think?
