"Welcome to Parenting - a Journey from pregnancy to parenthood"
Assalamualikum dear brothers and sisters,
Is birth actually something you can "prepare" for? A really good class can help give you the knowledge you need to make informed decisions, help you keep an open mind, prepare for the unpredictable, and give you a number of tools to pull out depending on how you feel at the time. Information is empowering, and what you don't know can scare you more than it should.
MCE is happy to offer you and your spouse a prenatal class on Saturday - February 23, 2013.
Starts: 3:00 pm and Finishes: Isha prayer. Where: MCE Mosque Fees: Free - Snack will be provided
There will be small breaks for prayers and snack.
If you are interested to attend this class send email to to register. Or feel free to email if you have any questions and concerns.
We highly recommend the husbands to attend the classes so that you can define who you are as" Father" and work together in this amazing journey of parenthood, inshaAllah.

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
"God has revealed (from time to time) the most beautiful Message in the form of a Book, consistent with itself, (yet) repeating (its teaching in various aspects): the skins of those who fear their Lord tremble thereat; then their skins and their hearts do soften to the celebration of God's praises. Such is the guidance of God: He guides therewith whom He pleases, but such as God leaves to stray, can have none to guide." - Qur'an 39:23
From one spring many streams flow. Throughout various historical and cultural contexts, the Qur'an has served as the constant link between God and mankind, adorning the prose of temporal existence with the majestic rhythm of revelation. Whoever approaches with sincerity - woman or man, scholar or student, saint or sinner - is immediately shaken by sublime truths that speak to one's core, changed forever. Join us to learn how this sacred text has been passed down through the ages, and why it plays so critical a role in the vast Islamic tradition.
