On the Road to Sakinah
Three New Teams Launched in North Carolina
By the grace of Allah, our North Carolina’s community launch event was very successful.
About 70 people attended the event. Several more visited our table in the main lobby
of Islamic Association of Raleigh’s mosque. We have launched three
new teams in three North Carolina cities: Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.
Please see our Teams
page to join any team.
Teams Meetings & Trainings
Last month, we introduced Team Building Folders to our team members. These folders
are part of our Team Building Resources. They include Meeting Planners to the tips
to take various actions. We encourage our teams to meet at least once in a month.
This year each team will receive 4-5 trainings about strengthening their teams and
improving their operations and skills, inshaAllah.

We are pleased to report that our MAS-ICNA presence was very fruitful. Anas Coburn
and Zerqa Abid, along with Chicago team members, Noor Church, Irma and Brian Dahlquist,
were able to engage hundreds of people during the four day convention.. We were
able to engage people not only from Chicago but also from throughout the Midwest.
Fifty-two new people signed to join our existing teams or launch a new one in their
cities. We are looking forward to a very busy 2013, Alhamdulillah.
Here is a video from the convention:
