General Events

Ahmed ShebaniI want to start with a reference to a verse in the Koran. Chapter 6 verse 32 ‘God tells us whoever revives the soul of a human being, it is as if he has revived all of humanity. Whoever kills the soul of a human being, it is as if he has killed all of humanity.’

Two verses of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) ‘Whoever removes the obstacle from the path does an act of charity.’  

‘A person in the life after his work has not finished through three channels. If a child prays for him. An educational institution that he left behind. A charitable institution and good deeds that he left behind.’  His Holiness, the late Father Moon has subscribed to all three good virtues I just mentioned.
