The Prophet’s (Peace and Blessing be upon Him) Farewell Address is one of the most profound speeches in human history.

In this lecture series Imam Zaid Shakir will delve into the depths of the meanings contained in this powerful and moving sermon. Starting Monday January 20th at 7pm PST
Imam Zaid Shakir will host a monthly interactive session focusing on the positive things happening in the community, and the many inspiring lives and events that are usually overlooked by the media.
