Being There

General NewsAsSalaamu alaikum,

I pray that you all are in the best of faith and health. I just would like to remind you all of the importance of letting it be known that you are available. The reason I bring this up is that often times, we may go to a new duty station and find out that there is no Islamic service or lay leader. Many people want to know about Islam from a Muslim.
Even if you are very new to Islam, you should be able to direct people to the Islamic resources that are available in your area or the internet. One of the easiest ways to do this is to go to http:www.islamicfinder.com. There you can get prayer times as well as discover what resources are available.

Often times, you will be able to locate other Muslims who know of Muslims in the area and create a network in the area. You'd be surprised how many Muslims you will meet and fellowship with. Ramadhan is approaching and it is difficult when you think you are the only Muslims there.

So let others know that you are there and more importantly--be there for them.

Shukron
