The Key to the Abode of Happiness (Updated)

The flyers for the QSS Canada lectures with Shaikh ‘Alî Hasan al-Halabî have been printed, and the praise is Allah’s. The lectures at QSSC are scheduled for Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18, 2008, 2:00pm-10:00pm both days. The shaikh will be explaining selections from Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah’s Miftâh Dâr as-Sa’âdah (The Key to the Abode of Happiness).

For those thinking of travelling to Toronto from out of town for the lectures, here’s a list of the hotels relatively close to the mosque:

I don’t know their rates, so you guys are going to have to contact them and find out yourselves. I’m guessing, however, that the HoJo will probably be cheaper than the others, and Allah is more knowledgeable.

For those of you Torontonians wanting to volunteer and distribute flyers, please give us a shout. It’d be preferable to actually hand them out to brothers and sisters after Friday sermon rather than just leave them on the typical flyer shelves at the various mosques where they’ll probably just end up in the garbage. If you’re going to hand them out at your local mosques, please do so with their permission (if you’re going to be handing them out on the mosque’s property). We don’t want anyone complaining about brothers and sisters causing problems with other mosques’ admins.

For the out of towners, Allah willing, I’ll be posting here are the links to the printable versions of the flyer (both jpg and pdf) when they’re made available. Please spread the word, may Allah reward and bless you.

    MashaaAllah, what an event.

    May Allah ta’ala bless the gathering and benefit those in search of benefit and a goodly reminder. Ameen.

  2. Wa ‘alaikum as-salam wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh,

    May Allah reward and bless you for your supplication.

    I, personally, am really looking forward to this as the shaikh hasn’t visited us since 2002/2003.

    MashaAllah, the topic seems very enticing. Any chances the lectures will be recorded?

    And by ‘give us a shout,’ you are referring to the email on the flyer, correct?

    BarakAllahu Feek

  4. May Allah reward and bless you.

    Yes, the lectures should be recorded, Allah willing. If you are unable to attend the lectures, contact QSSC for information about how to obtain the CDs and/or DVDs of the lectures.

    And yes, by ‘give us a shout,’ I do mean QSSC (via the email address on the flier). Although, I don’t mind requests being made to me via this blog or via email.

    MashaaAllah, he is giving a live lecture on PalTalk [in the Quran and Sunnah Society of Canada LIVE room] at the moment. What a pleasant surprise; may Allah ta’ala reward QSSC. Ameen!
