Are YOU Gathering?

Assalamu Alaykum,

Project Sakinah is gathering community all over the country to stop domestic violence and to promote healthy relationships within Muslim households.  Community members from different walks of life in different cities are joining hands with us and offering to have a gathering in their neighborhood or at their masjid.  Would you also like to join hands with us?  Please let us know by clicking on the button below.

Survey Concludes Successfully
We are pleased to report that over 700 Muslim men and women from across America and Canada participated in the survey: “Attitudes of Muslim Men and Women Toward Domestic Violence.”  The survey concluded on October 31, 2011.  The results of this survey will be shared with the community after the thorough analyses is done by our researchers.  The survey is a collaborative effort of Project Sakinah and Peaceful Families Project, and many individuals and institutions, including ISNA helped publicize it for us.

Columbus and Chicago Took the Lead!
By the grace of Allah, we have successfully launched Project Sakinah in Columbus and Chicago last month.  Our programs were very well received by the audience.  Community members in both cities have joined hands and are putting together a year-round plan for their cities this month.  For an in-depth report about these events, photos and videos please, click here.

Ainie Zafar & Adeeba Ali took a few Steps!
Since last month, Ainie Zafar and Adeeba Ali along with MSA of Ohio State University have taken few steps in combating domestic violence in Columbus community.  They helped in organizing Columbus gathering and have taken lead in organizing Project Sakinah’s program at OSU Campus.  This program will be held in February of 2012.  So far this will be our first gathering organized solely by college students.  Kudos for Adeeba and Ainie for their leadership.  Kudos for MSA-OSU for their willingness to collaborate with project Sakinah.  Please keep them in your prayers.

Spotlight on Khateeb Training at ADAMS Center, VA 

We would like to congratulate ADAMS Center, VA, for the introductory Domestic Violence training it provided to 10 khateebs on September 24, 2011.  This training was a part of an effort to support ADAMS Center khateebs in addressing domestic violence during the month of October.  The training was provided by Salma Abugideiri, Co-Director of the Peaceful Families Project, and Ambreen Ahmed, Director of FAITH Social Services. We hope that similar trainings will be organized by other organizations all over the country.
