The forecast is sunny for Wednesday insha'Allah with light rain on Thursday (please bring umbrellas if you are coming on Thursday). In the event of very heavy rain people can sleep in their cars if they prefer.

On the afternoon of 23rd September 2010 mother of three Aafia Siddiqui was sentenced to 86 years on five charges by 'Judge' Berman in a Manhattan courtroom.

All are requested to make du'aa for our dear sister and to exhaust all means to raise awareness and to seek her release.
