Reviving the Wednesday Circle
Event: The Wednesday Circle
Date/Time: Every Wednesday at 7:30pm (After Salatul ‘Esha)
Venue: Please e-mail me for details
Restrictions: Brothers only
The Wednesday Circle is a circle for the youth that has been running for over 10 years now in some shape or form. It is a circle aimed at young boys between 11-19 years of age, but is not limited to them and everyone is welcome to attend.
Traditionally the circle has always been random topics based talks and discussions. We have decided to try something different and have introduced a structure that we hope will be of benefit to the local youth.
Each month will be divided into 4 sessions (weeks) which will be repeated consecutively as follows:
· Session/Week 1 will cover a translation and explanation of one of the short Surah’s of the Qur’an that we regularly recite in our daily Salah, starting with Surah Al-Fatiha and going up to Surah Al-Fil and possibly beyond.
· Session/Week 2 will cover the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) based on one of the English texts that are available.
· Session/Week 3 will cover a life of one of the companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him).
· Session/Week 4 will be left as an empty slot to cover general topics of interest and hold question and answer sessions.
The circles are run by local brothers and the talks are also delivered by local brothers. I would be grateful if you could publicise this by word of mouth/e-mail to anyone (particularly parents of young boys) you know that live in the Bethnal Green and Shoreditch area.
Please get in touch with me if you would like more details or information.
