THE SPIRITUAL BENEFITS OF COMMUNITY
We live in a world today where we experience many forms of trauma. We are impacted physically, emotionally, and most of all time spiritually. We are not meant to take our spiritual journeys alone; this often can make the trauma that we experience worse. We need to create shared sacred spaces where believers can study and reflect on the Divine word, pray and meditate, participate in ritual worship and solitary retreat and serve Allah’s creation. In this is our healing; the healing that our souls yearn. One of the ways we seek to accomplish our mission is through the practice of fomenting brotherhood and sisterhood. We are called by Allah in the Quran to build and maintain social and communal bonds with one another:
"And hold fast, all together, unto the bond with God, and do not draw apart from one another…"
Our goal at Masjid Quba is to heed that call.
BUILDING A SPIRITUALLY ROOTED COMMUNITY
“In order to have sustainable community you have to make sure people are sustainable. That means healing trauma.”
