Words cannot describe of how thankful I am to always get unlimited support from the Abdullah Brothers. I love these brothers for the sake of Allah. May Allah continue to bless these brothers and keep them steadfest in the Deen of Islam.
Words cannot describe of how humbling it was to be in the company of these brothers and sisters in California. The beauty is we all come from all walks of life with different careers and backgrounds. What a powerful journey this was. We met up with intentions to create stronger ties in the Ummah and to be reminders to one another to become better Muslims.
As a new Muslim and forever student of Islam it is not often when Allah blesses you with the opportunity to sit and have dinner with one of Islam's most respected scholars in America. I am truly humbled to have been a guest at Dr. Jackson's home and sit and learn from him. Truly a humbling blessing.

Had a chance to be a part of a ground breaking experience of helping with the first outdoor street store for the homeless. All clothes were donated and the homeless were able to shop with dignity. Barbers were on site to groom the less fortunate for FREE. Bottles of FREE water were handed out throughout the day along with options to purchase burger and fries gift vouchers to feed the bellies of the less fortunate. Alhamdulilah.
Bismillah. Today, November 6th 2014 marks the day Allah allowed us as a Ummah to help HUMANITY again in a major way. With the help of generous BUT compassionate Muslims we have been able to cover the remaining balance of this brothers education in Cambodia to offer him a opportunity at a better career in life to support his family of 6 by pursuing his bachelors degree. May Allah guide him to Islam through the action of our Ummah. Thank you all. May Allah reward you and grant you Jannah.
Me and the brothers out having a awesome breakfast enjoying the bonding moments of brotherhood.
Spending time in Sydney was amazingly rewarding. I had a chance of meeting star Rugby player and Muslim Sonny Bill Williams. Sonny and I enjoyed laughs and conversation before I arrived at Masjid Abu-Bakr to engage with the Auburn youth community in Sydney Australia. The night ended on an amazing note with a woman accepting Islam after my speech. Alhamdulilah.
