November 2006

Alhamdulillah, a couple of us attended a Thanksgiving night at the Church of Latter-Day Saints of Jesus Christ, also known as Mormons. We read the last section of Sura Yasin and translated it for them. In addition, our musicians played an Osmanli Nakshibendi song for the audience, who said the event was their first and one they cannot forget. Representatives of other houses of worship read from their scriptures and sang a few hymns too.

We’re expecting Sheykh Efendi back tonight inshallah. We heard he was in DC for a couple of days, staying over at his murids’. He visited two cemeteries around there. Lucky folk.
