But it's not that bad, it's not anything to be afraid of. I just made that title to get your attention, that's it.
Insha Allah in another week, our brothers from Masjid ar-Rahmah of Newark. New Jersey will be visiting us in their Annual Visit. The brothers come once a year with a nice sized group. They used to come with our beloved brother Abu Uwais Abdullah Ahmad Ali, may Allah have Mercy on him.
Usually, the group will come for about a week or more and attend different classes taught by local Scholars and Teachers at the Islamic University of Madinah.
I posted about the Americans' Visit to Madinah in the past, check it out.
Monthly Sitting at the Shaikh's House
Also, in more important news regarding the Americans, there will be a sitting at Shaikh Muhammad bin 'Abd al-Wahhab al-'Aqeel's house. It is an monthly sitting that takes place at the Shaikh's house for the American Students Studying at the Islamic University.
I know, I know.... why only the Americans!? Well, because it's not our house is it? It's the Shaikh's house and his rules, and we should all respect that. I'm sure the Shaikh would like al the other Students from all the other countries to attend too, but there's over 6,000 students from more than 135 countries who currently study in the Islamic University.
Also, the monthly sitting will be an explanation of "Jaami' Bayaan al-'Ilm wa Fadhlihi" an amazing book that explains the Virtues of Knowledge (Islamic Knowledge) and the Etiquettes of Seeking Knowledge.
If you're in Madinah tomorrow night:
Date: 11th of April, 2007/ 24th of Rabi Awwal, 1428
Time: 930pm sharp insha Allah
This class is for the students from America so we ask everyone to respect this decision.
We will have cars leaving from the Prophet’s Masjid (peace be upon him) and from the Islamic University Masjid insha Allah.

This last announcement was courtesy of the Madinah Students Blog, which is run by some of our brothers who help out a LOT with different Student Affairs for their Fellow Brothers.
Stuff like arranging these sittings, helping students find financial aid, and many other things that they are rarely thanked for. You might remember Isa Parada from the Calling All Americans which was then followed by the Infamous Meeting follow-up post.
May Allah reward these brothers well in this life and the next.
