“Building a Spiritually Rooted Community”
“In order to have sustainable community you have to make sure people are sustainable. That means healing trauma.”
Jarmbi Githabul Narakwal/ Githabul Custodian
We live in a world today where we experience many forms of trauma. Sometimes it’s physical, other times it’s emotional, but most of the time it is spiritual. We are not meant to take our spiritual journeys alone; oftentimes this makes the trauma that we experience worse. We need to have a shared sacred space where we 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. In the Quran Allah calls us 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…"
It is our goal to heed that call.
