Now that Ramadhan is over here comes Hajj

Alhamdulillah ALMA had a very successful month of Ramadhan activities. Beginning from the Welcome Ramadhan event on 15 August 2009, ALMA conducted a series of Iftar events, speeches, a Qiyam program, Eid prayer and culminated with Eid celebration cum AGM on 26 September 2009.

Now that Ramadhan is over, it is time for those who are planning to perform Hajj to get serious. We are aware that a number of brothers and sisters from the Sri Lankan Muslim community in Sydney have already set plans to take up this sacred journey this year.

Over the last few years ALMA has actively promoted the Hajj pilgrimage via seminars departure ceremonies and welcoming the Hajis back to Sydney upon completing the Hajj.
We believe the following seminar would be of immense value for those who are planning to perform Hajj this year Insha Allah. Brother Ismail Davids who is conducting the seminar has written a wonderful book and also held similar seminars over the past several years that has helped the would be Hajis plan their trip properly.

So brothers and sisters, if you planning to perform Hajj this year don't miss this wonderful opportunity. Please see details below.
