in association with
Gulf Cultural Club
invite you to Ramadan Experience and seminar titled:
Aspiring for spiritual perfection through fasting
Sheikh Isa Jahangir*
Mustafa Almansur **
God’s religions aim at directing the life of people to achieve perfection. Acts of worship, morality, worship of God and achieving balance between the inner and the outer sides of man are what wise people aspire to achieve. Perfection is God’s attribute; He wants mankind to be perfect. The Ramadan Experience offers an opportunity to cleanse the soul, clear the mind and remove evil from the self. It is a time when the relative seeks to link up with the absolute. Wisdom dictates that one must not miss the opportunity. Other faiths also prescribe fasting as a way of self-control and discipline. Join us in unforgettable moments of God’s invocation, self-purification and inner cleansing.
Time: 6.30pm Tuesday, 14th June 2016
Venue: Abrar House, 45 Crawford Place, W1H 4LP
