[Kicking Off a New Series This Tuesday – Sublime Character]
We recently completed the Book of Assistance sessions on second Tuesdays of the month. Now it’s time for a new book!
Our Master Muhammad The Messenger of Allah – His Sublime Character & Exalted Attributes written by a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad himself, Imam Abdallah Sirajuddin al-Husayni.
Often ranked the most influential man ever on earth, one summarised him as the only one supremely successful on both religious and secular levels. Surely there are deeper and inner meanings to his intense and immense greatness.
As usual, Peace Meal events are always free, including the light dinner. No registration required either. Spread the word, come!
First session is this coming Tuesday, 14th of August 2018, 8.00pm to 9.00pm at Mukha Cafe, TTDI KL.

Why Islam and Hip Hop?
with Baraka Blue
8pm Sunday, 29th of July 2018
Mukha Cafe, TTDI KL
Hip-Hop has become a central thread of global youth culture, and a voice for Muslims all over the world, yet many in the Muslim majority world see a culture of immorality or Western encroachment on traditional culture and art. Come let’s explore this and more.
Peace Meal Film Club
Once a month we screen a film at 8.45pm at our usual spot, Mukha Cafe in TTDI. Typically first Tuesdays of the month with refreshments on the house. Films screened will be approximately 45 minutes in length.
No tickets, no bookings.
- Peace Meal hosts the ongoing Q Culture Club on WhatsApp. This is where instead of committing one ‘juz’, beginners to the Qur’an contribute at least a page at a time of their convenience. On the first Tuesdays of the month those interested come and read together with some free beverage. 30 minutes only at Mukha. 8-8.30pm. You’re welcomed. Click here for more on the QCC.
- Peace Meal Break Night will take place on the same night 8.30-8.45pm. Right before the Film Club. With food from Mukha, this is where we serve free dinner for 15 minutes only. You’re welcomed too.
Looking forward. Spread the word!
Session goes until about 9.15pm. Do stay back for Q&A if you can. Though this gig is not at Mukha, that signature coffee we serve will also be in your cups at CASIS. 🙂

Before the revelation, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was already known, heard and trusted by many. Join us as Shaykh Aslam shares stories and meanings about his life at that age including his work under businesswoman and future wife, Khadeejah (ra).
Shaykh Mohammed Aslam memorised the Quran from an early age, after which he embarked on a path of seeking sacred knowledge. He ultimately travelled to Damascus where he undertook extensive private studies as well as enrolling in one of the most prestigious Islamic institutes in the world, Mahad al-Fath al-Islami seminary from where he graduated after six years of full time study with some of the greatest scholars in the world.
On returning to the U.K, he enrolled in Post-graduate studies at the same time as serving as Imam Khatib of one of the largest mosques in Birmingham. Shaykh Aslam established The City of Knowledge Academy which serves as a bustling hub of educational activity as well as also advising various community and grassroots projects around the city.
