Since the day we were born, we have been on a journey. It starts with a question: who am I and why am I here.
Through this Series, we aim to answer these questions and bring us closer to our Divine Creator. During the month of Dhu al-Hijjah, join us as we embark on a thoughtful journey in understanding Allah SWT.
