The Seven M’s of Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani (qaddas Allahu sirrahu)
Imam Bilal, Saturday, June 27, 2020 10:30 AM - 1 PM PDT
If You Can’t See My Face
Don’t open your mouth without My Lips to Kiss.
Don’t say a thing unless you sing the Songs of My Prayers.
Don’t listen to me until you can hear the Whispers of My Tears.
Don’t look at me without My Eyes to See.
And if you can’t see My Face, then touch My Heart and Weep.
Jalal al-Din Rumi — Quatrain No. 166 (F.1530)

Remote attendance only (other than our audio-visual hero, Kevin) is planned using Zoom, with video of Imam Bilal. Advance acknowledgment if you plan to attend remotely is very much appreciated (shukran). Please contact Subhana at email@example.com to register (suggested donation $50 to $100; available to regular contributors), and to arrange donations if you aren't local. Please make checks for donations to Nurani Institute, a religious 501(c)3 non-profit (or Zelle to firstname.lastname@example.org). Recordings available afterwards, same price as attending (included with registration). In any class, there may need to be changes based on Bilal’s perceptions of the needs of the moment.
